“We hired a guy who pretended his mom died, and it was his mom who outed him.
We knew right off the bat he was lying because the night before his call out he was going around begging everyone to take his shift so he could go party with friends. Managers didn’t want to fire him just in case it was a really unfortunate coincidence. Then his mom called in looking for him (which was weird because this guy was in his 20s). I was the one who answered the phone.
“Hi, I’m looking for [name], I’m his mother. Is he there?”
“Uh, no. He called out today, and, uhh… he said it was because his mother died.”
