Yup, that’s what actually happened. To protect them, I am not even using their correct pronouns.
As someone more junior than me, I gave them my corp card to book our clients’ hotel rooms on my card. They then used the same card to book their 3-night stay for the same event, in the same city they lived in, without telling me or our boss.
It took 6 weeks and numerous phone calls to the hotel to get them to remove the charge and re-charge my coworker’s actual card (who was peeved that the company was making them pay for their room after all).
Needless to say, they were exited soon after.
