I work in the deli at a grocery store and I was told by my manager that it was okay to keep my water bottle in the designated spot behind the counter. I got to work the next day to find that my water bottle (which I had gotten on a trip with a friend) had been thrown away by the assistant district manager. When I confronted him about it he said he threw it away because we are not allowed to have water bottles behind the counter at the deli, however the water bottle that my manager keeps back there (which is labeled with her name) was untouched. I am extremely agitated, and I just want to know if there is anything I can do about it? Would it be too much to say that I think he owes me a water bottle?
I think they probably do owe you a new water bottle, and that you probably could file an action in small claims court. Do you really want to do that?
