Netflix. Pretty interesting documentary.

It makes you wonder how much greed, theft, and waste takes place.

Is it a documentary on the actual queens horses or some political insight into the US Government monster?

I don't have netflix, just Amazon Prime and FIOS On Demand. Is it only on Netflix?

I donít know if itís anywhere other than Netflix. Itís about some city government employee in a small town in Illinois. She stole almost 54 million over twelve years before she was caught. She spent a ton on horses.

The company I work for goes over every expense report with a fine toothed comb. This chick stole over 53 million bucks. I canít buy an extra Diet Coke without getting busted.

I liked it.

Dave, your point about expense reports at your company is a good one. My company is the same way.

Bob, this lady set it up so she was the only keeper of the cityís checking accounts. She went out of town and someone who worked for her stumbled across a secret city checking account and it unraveled from there.

I watched it too and still find it very difficult to believe that $53 million can be stolen from that small town without anybody realizing somethingís amiss

Even officials from a nearby town remarked that it was baffling to them why the victim city was tens of millions in debt

That the mayor was disappointed that he didnít get re-elected after the scandal tells you how out of touch the city officials were

Because of her theft your expense reports get closely scrutinized as a defense against theft. Can you honestly say you never fudged an expense?

Yes, I can say that.

If anything, I would leave off legitimate expenses before I would insert anything questionable. Unless I could fudge 54 million and walk away, it just ain't worth it.

Her theft has nothing to do with my or Daveís expense reports being scrutinized. Daveís analogy was comparing how a city employee can steal tens of millions of dollars over 12 years without anyone noticing money missing (again, she wasnít caught because money was missing; she was caught because someone accidentally found her secret bank account) but private companies scrutinize expense reports to suss out minimal travel expenses, like an extra Diet Coke you bought in the airport when your flight was delayed (or something similar). That snack I had to buy during a delayed flight wasnít me trying to game the system, it was just something to tie me over during a long day of travel being made even longer. Again, just an example. The bean counters, who never travel for the company, donít care about anything other than whether the expense meets the parameters set out by the company handbook regarding travel expenses.

And yes, I can honestly say Iíve never fudged an expense report. Thatís a death sentence and, like someone above said, Iíve lost money on legitimate expenses traveling for my company rather than submit anything that some nerd in finance might think is suspicious. Itís just not worth it.

I've done my duty on micro-managed expense reports. Fought it hard for the first 12 years of my working career. Now, for the last 18, it has been nothing short of doing what I want and when I want to do it, and spend what is needed to satisfy the customer and myself. I'm very thankful for that and I will also be tuning in on this Netflix documentary. May find another loophole or two.....wrong! That's why I don't have to worry about it now, but I'm also not working for big corporate America. We are just a few farmers trying to grow some shrooms for folks like you.
