Carley and I walked into Blockbuster today to check her schedule and grab the new movies that are coming out. After we'd walked around for a while, we came to the front, only to see Kris Wood with a big grin on his face.
"Guess who got canned," said he.
"Who?" said we.
"Matt!" said he.
"Har!" said we.
That's right, Matt was fired for fudging inventory results at 95513. Apparently he received a bunch of movies as both rental and retail to make the numbers look better. When confronted about it (he's actually working in Barrie now, he left my store a few weeks ago, but LP investigations take a loooooong time), he tried to blame DJ and Lisa. Jim from LP apparently responded with a hearty, "Yeah. Right."
So, Matt, who chose to ignore every piece of advice I gave him about inventory and had Kelly guide him through every stage of it after I left, was terminated for lying about his results. And not only did he try to cover up the crappy results, he tried to cover up the cover up! Classy!
