Money doesn’t grow on trees. It has to be earned by doing honest work. The dignity and integrity that you put in an honest job will save you a lasting position or even a promotion. Oftentimes, this includes submitting to your bosses or building relationships with clients through trust. This means having a sense of responsibility and accountability.
An American news team called Inside Edition believes in this stance that is why they have a segment called House of Shame to test employees’ work ethics. Unfortunately, a hired repairman failed the test and proved that he had never had the best interests of his employer after being caught by surveillance team doing a lousy job.
The Inside Edition set an investigation inside a resident’s home since the owner had doubts about hiring people to clean her vents. They called two companies that specialized in cleaning ventilation. They also placed hidden cameras in the home before the hired men came in. Later on, the repairman showed up and was welcomed by the reporter who disguised herself as the owner. The repairer was seen tinkering and examining the valve with his flashlight.
After he was done, he sat down with the reporter to discuss the problem which wasn’t specified. But the repairman claimed the damage would cost the owner more than 700 dollars. The cameraman soon swooped into the kitchen and explained to the repairmen who they were and what they were doing.
The repairman was horrified and ran-off. It was a lesson learned for the repairman.
