You shouldn't cover for their asses anymore. If they wanna get stoned while you work, they should have to deal with the consequences. Next time, you should tell the customer the truth. If you can't bring yourself to report your coworkers, the customer might. You've gotta at least try.

or Just go sit in their car, apparently nobody take this job seriously, and you are probably not ppaid enough to cover all your coworker. and well i guest this mean finding à New job too xD

47 brings up a good point. I had an old boss that would allow people to go take breaks to get stoned. so it depends on if the boss already knows or not. If they do, and don't care op provably shouldn't waste any more time there and just tell the customer the truth. and also find a new job.

that never works I've been through the same ordeal in fact it may get him fired for trash talking about his coworkers I've caught coworkers stealing, on porn sites, flirting with under aged girls, playing games on cell phones, and drinking on the job the reportee is more likely going to get into trouble. he needs to find a better job

I said IF OP couldn't work up the nerve to report it to the boss herself. Judging by the fact that she's covered for them before (seemingly on multiple occasions), it doesn't seem too likely that she will anytime soon. And the customer can easily report such a thing with a phone call, haven't you ever noticed how most establishments will leave a phone number on the receipt to give feedback? And some places just have those little cards left out for you to give feedback on.

Oh I realize you said that, but I think it is just obvious that he boss is the one who needs to be told. Customers shouldn't be told about something like that because it could hurt the business and have word get around that people shouldn't go there because a bunch of stoners work there. It's a business affair and I don't think it's right to bring the customer into this.

#59's logic: Hey I'm gonna go out to my car and get high while leaving you here to do my job, but if you get me fired for it you're a snitch and nobody will like you. ***RETARD ALERT***

It's an opinion. Regardless, shouldn't be blazing when you're supposed to be working. Even I wouldn't do that shit at work. Maybe go into work a little high, but never while I'm at work. What if someone sees? While the coworkers might not care, it could hurt business. I guess some people just don't know how to common sense.

"Most popular kid at school". You keep telling yourself that, honey. In regards to friends, it's quality, not quantity. Plus you just made yourself look very stuck up. Stop whilst you can.

Thumbing down people like #7's comments is what makes me feel good. If you're a royal douche then sticking up for yourself is the worst you can do. An apology is simpler, and shows you aren't completely stuck up.

#20 how were you even comfortable hitting reply after starting with such a stuck up statement. You're 13, still in junior high. No one cares about how many friends you have except you, and that just screams low self-esteem at a very young age...

Hey, no hard feelings. Being the most popular kid at Coolsville Junior High must be exhausting! PS, aren't you proud of me? I seem to have mastered the reply button! Go tell your multitude of friends that you single-handedly started an online reform!

It is irresponsible to cover for them and not inform the manager. If the OP doesn't get reprimanded as well when the manager eventually finds out, then at the very least she won't be getting that promotion. You can't cover for your coworkers and expect your manager to see that as a good thing.
