When I was a teen, I loved working for a fast food restaurant, because I could have the merchandise for dinner. It’s too bad the same concept doesn’t quite work in the banking institutions. Then again, I’ve been reading about the financial crises in 2008. There were a lot of bank executives and Wall Street financiers that appeared to be doing just that.

If a bank teller helped herself to the bank’s merchandise, that would be called embezzling. If an executive helps himself, is that called a bonus?
