John Every worked with a man named Marko. Marko was a handsome man and he had dark hair. Sometimes Marko liked to discuss his cuban heritage (John did not care).
They worked in a nice establishment. They both had the same manager and there was a refrigerator. Within this refrigerator there was a supply of milk. The milk was for the organization.
All employees were allowed ONE item of milk per day. It was company policy.
Marko enjoyed drinking milk. He also liked stealing milk from the refrigerator.
John had witnessed this before. John usually did not mind BUT one time Marko stole some of John’s milk. … … No. John thought in his head, “No.”
John Every told the manager. The manager looked on the company video log (there was a surveillance camera aimed at the refrigerator). The cameras showed 16 times that Marko had stolen milk from the refrigerator.
The manager called Marko into his office.
“Marko, we have proof of you stealing milk.” He showed Marko all of the footage. “Marko, that is clearly you. This goes against company policy. I will either terminate you at the end of the day or you can choose to resign with dignity.”
Marko walked out of the office. He was embarrassed. He wrote down a note and gave it to the manager. Marko then collected his things and left the organization.
The manager announced to all workers that Marko had quit. He read the note: “It seems to me that working at this establishment was simply Not The Noodle’s plan. The almighty Noodle has sent me a sign. I am quitting today and moving on with my career. Sincerely, Marko.”
John was somewhat confused. He witnessed Marko stealing the milk. He had a feeling his manager gave Marko the option of quitting. John just did not think the Holy Noodle was involved at all in this scenario … …
