Will They Miss It?

I read today in the Publishers Lunch that Danielle Steel's former assistant will serve almost three years in prison for embezzling $760,000. That's not the first time I heard of an author's assistant doing that. Why do they think, "Oh, she's got plenty of money, she won't miss it. I deserve it more than her!" Stupid. One thing they mentioned about DS's assistant, her "part-time" pay was $200,000. MY GOODNESS! And she still thought she was owed more! Amazing.
