A workplace dilemma has sparked a heated debate online. Jessie, known as @prablums on TikTok, recorded a viral video revealing she faces a hefty $800 bill from her co-worker after an old iPhone took an unexpected dive into water. The question on everyone’s mind is: Who should foot the bill for the damages?
Every iPhone Owner’s Worst Nightmare!
According to Jessie, her co-worker had left her phone inside a large wallet on a shelf when cleaning at the back of the restaurant where they both work.
The Unfortunate Incident
While reaching for soap, Jessie accidentally knocked the wallet into a bucket of soapy water below, completely unaware of the phone.
She Assumed It Was Resolved
She dried off the wallet and informed her manager about the incident, assuming it was resolved.
The Phone Suffered Water Damage
Little did she know that the phone had suffered water damage. To her surprise, Jessie’s co-worker demanded that she cover the full cost of a new phone, totaling $800.
She Wants Legal Advice
In her video, Jessie shared her frustration, displaying an iPhone that appeared to have previous damage unrelated to water. She asked for advice from viewers on whether legal action was necessary.
Twist Reveals It Could Have Been Avoided
We can reveal from Jessie’s comments that there is a designated place for workers’ phones in the workplace.
They Supported Her
Support from viewers flooded in, asserting that Jessie shouldn’t be held accountable since it was her co-worker’s negligence that led to the incident.
The Consensus Was Clear
One user dryly asked, “why was her phone irresponsibly left there.” The consensus among commenters was clear.
While small claims court might be a possibility, TikTok commenters, although not legal experts, shared one valuable piece of advice for Jessie’s co-worker and others in similar situations – get insurance for your phone if you’re prone to leaving it lying around!
