Jeffrey Welter BUS-115 26JUL06 Inventory Inventory is an important part of my job as with all others. During inventory we are required to physically see the equipment and check it off on an inventory sheet. We inventory many things and completing a thorough inventory takes about 30 minutes. Many times I simply assume that the inventory is there and in working condition. This was the case a while ago when my boss came to me asked if I had completed the inventory for the day. Not thinking anything of it, I told him that I had done it. Little did I know, he knew I hadn’t completed inventory the right way. One of the items on our inventory sheet was moved, and if I had done it correctly then I would of noticed it during my inventory. After telling my boss the truth that I did not conduct inventory properly he was not very happy. By not doing inventory properly I violated company policy and was basically being lazy.

Do not do unto others as you would not have them do unto you (Nickels, McHugh, and McHugh) is a good thing to remember when making choices and or decisions. Make actions did not make me feel nervous and or ashamed of myself at the time, but after the fact I do feel ashamed. An alternative for me would have been to complete the inventory thoroughly, which would of kept me out of trouble. Had I asked myself the ethical dilemma questions I would have done things differently for many reasons. Knowing the ethical dilemma questions now, I will ask myself these questions on a regular basis as part of my decision making process. Works Cited Nickels, McHugh, and McHugh.
