    Diary of a Bad, Bad Bookkeeper (Day 55) – The Sister Company Scam

    [ad#Adlinks Fraud]
    Dear Diary,

    Today I became a business owner.  That’s right, I’ve opened my own business and am about to make a million dollars the easy way – with little or no money down.  Okay – I spent a little money.  But technically, it wasn’t my money.  It was my boss’s money – or maybe I should call him my “investor” – not that he knows he’s an investor.

    If only all those companies touting their “make a million dollars without doing any … Read More

    Okay, I have a confession to make:  I am a Mom.  Even worse, I am a Mom with a Toddler.  What that means is that as a “Mom with a Toddler,” I know all the words to “Elmo’s World.”  I also know how to “Do the Pigeon” and that “C is for Cookie” (which is good enough for me).  I know how to read Dora’s map, and I know Hannah Montana’s true identity.

    What’s more… I know “who lives in a Pineapple under the sea.”

    Betty Bookkeeper Headshot

    Dear Diary,

    Betty Bookkeeper HeadshotToday sucked… and I mean, straight up sucked.

    There I was, minding my own business, when in walks the boss with a receipt. On the receipt are stamped the letters C.O.D. It was from one of our vendors that apparently hasn’t been paid in so long, they’ve changed our account from credit to C.O.D.

    “What is this, Betty?” the boss asked me. “Why has ABC Hardware turned our credit account … Read More

    Diary of a Bad, Bad Bookkeeper: (Day 72) Bank Balance? What Bank Balance?

    Dear Diary,

    Today, was a funny day.  The boss came into my office, and he had this look on his face.  It was a look like, I’m gonna get answers – no matter what.

    Pasting an innocent expression on my face, I quickly hid the Mafia Wars game on my computer screen and turned my full attention to him.  “What’s up, Boss?” I asked.

    “Hey, Betty.  I was just wondering – how much money do we have … Read More

    The 10 Customer Service Rules that All “Big Businesses” Utilize

    You may be wondering, “E.T. Barton is a bookkeeper and a researcher.  What the heck could she possibly know about customer service?  What qualifies her to teach a lesson like this one?  She’s ‘Back Office’ – NOT Retail.”

    SignTo be quite honest…I rock at customer service.  I mean, I seriously kick butt.  But that is not actually what qualifies me as a customer service expert.  What qualifies me is the fact that one of my very first jobs – back when I was in … Read More

    [ad#Adlinks – Bookkeeping Class]

    Dear Diary,

    Today was another, “Not so great day”…but this time it was one for the books.

    Today, when I went to work, I wasn’t feeling so hot.  In fact, I ended up puking into my office trash can just as the boss walked in.

    Betty Bookkeeper Headshot“Hey,” he says to me, looking concerned.  “You’re sick?  You shouldn’t be here if you’re sick.  Go home!”

    “She was sick yesterday too,” the … Read More

    Diary of a Bad, Bad Bookkeeper (Day 112) – Theft by Signature Stamp

    Betty Bookkeeper Headshot

    Dear Diary,

    Today the boss went on vacation and guess what he gave me…the Signature Stamp.  I couldn’t believe it when he handed it to me.  I think my smile was from ear-to-ear.  Doesn’t he realize how stupid it is to give me the signature stamp?

    “Are you sure you want to give this to me?” I asked all innocent like.  In the back of my mind, I was already calculating how much money I might be able to get now that I had this new stamp.

    “Of course.  I trust you,” he told me with an amused little smirk.

    [ad#Adlinks Fraud]

    Dear Diary,

    Another day, another dollar…or at least, another stolen dollar.

    Well – I’ve had my own company for about two weeks now and I’ve made a couple thousand dollars skimming off the deposits.  The boss hasn’t noticed.  As far as he’s concerned, all of the invoices are paid, and I’m doing my job incredibly well.  In fact, I just passed the three month trial period, and the boss gave me a $0.50 an hour raise.  When he told me that, I felt like saying, “Really?  A … Read More
