They ceased to amaze me. I just sit there and think "Whats the stupidest thing a sane human being would do?", then i multiply that by 100. Then I sit down and watch the news and realize i wasnt even freaking close. lol

"I have alerted the officials of the Disney Cruiseline and forwarded them the photos," she writes on her Facebook page. "Hopefully I'll get my phone back and maybe some free passes to Disneyland."



People like this woman are the reason there are mandatory "slippery floor" and "hot coffee is hot" warnings. Every chance she gets.

So, you don't believe she should be compensated by the company that employed the (alleged) thief?

I think they might throw something at her out of guilt or to enhance PR goodwill, but that the bulk of the compensation needs to come from the thief. A severed head on a pike comes to mind. :cool:

No, the phone wasn't stolen. She lost it/left it/forget it, what ever..... The employee is a jerk for not turning it in, but if another passenger had done the same thing, there would be nothing she could do.

Failing to turn in found property is identical to stealing when you have a duty to turn it in, and I'm CERTAIN it violates the employee's terms of employment. TSA staff (for the most part :hissyfit:) don't steal stuff left behind at checkpoints by airline passengers.
... but if another passenger had done the same thing, there would be nothing she could do.
Except report the passenger to the cruise line and to the authorities. But cruise ship staff are not fellow passengers, and are held to a higher standard of conduct. Especially by Disney.

But mocking them in public like this is priceless. :biggrin:

UPDATE: New York Magazine and USAToday ran articles: http://travel.usatoday.com/cruises/post/2012/05/disney-wonder-stolen-iphone/700211/1

Rebecca Peddie, manager of public affairs for Disney Cruise Line, says the line became aware of the Facebook photos and the alleged theft yesterday, and says the iPhone had been recovered. It is currently on the Wonder, and the line intends to return it to the owner when the ship's current cruise ends.

Peddie says that while situation is being investigated, the crew member, who is still on the Wonder, is on administrative leave and has been restricted from guest areas.

As the New York Magazine article says, it is possible the alleged thief bought the phone from someone else, or that there is some other explanation as to why he had the phone in his possession.

Either way, Disney said it takes this matter "very seriously."

"We have a zero-tolerance policy for this type of behavior," the spokesperson added. "We are taking aggressive action."

I don't believe it is appropriate to discuss publicly before discussing with Disney. I had a longer story typed up about a personal experience...but it really doesn't matter. I just don't respect the mentality that "I was wronged, I am entitled to profit from it."

It appears she didn't give Disney a chance to take action before she threw the company under the bus in as public a way as she could.

"Dear Disney CEO, here is my photo blog. You screwed up. Now reward me."
