And the fact that he immediately paid it back is irrelevant? It's like somebody "waltzing onto your yacht" and taking a fistful of diamonds, then handing them back to you and saying that you ought to secure your valuables better.
Oh, I should probably also mention that a year later that company was bought out by AOL.
20 years ago there were new billing policies being put into place in different regions. I was in a California hotel over one weekend for a business meeting, and used the corporate network's local access number to connect and work all day, since my employer had bought a cheaper airline ticket that meant I had to stay over an extra day. I was shocked on checking out to be billed at $0.50 an hour for that time. Being from Florida I had no idea that local calls were charged at that rate from a commercial venue, such as a hotel, and there was nothing anywhere in the hotel mentioning this. Some time later the local Florida telco also implemented the same kind of charges. The company hadn't covered any "extra" charges, such as the meals for that extra layover day. I didn't have enough to pay the phone bill and had to call my local supervisor - at 5:30AM - to get the company to cover the charge before I could leave the hotel to catch my plane. They fired me later that week, and deducted those phone charges from my severance pay.
