Let’s say I worked at the Miracle Whip bottling plant in Ypsilanti (or wherever the hell it is). Let’s say further that my fridge is devoid of Miracle Whip, and that my wife has been nagging me for days to bring some home. Could I just email HR and have them deduct the cost of a 16-oz jar from this week’s pay and then take one home? Or do I have to go to Safeway and buy some like everyone else?
Or another example: Let’s say I worked at the Chevy factory, and I needed a new Chevy. Could I just talk to the right people (my banker, the sales department) and then meet a guy out back and grab my new Cruze when it’s done? Or would I still have to take delivery via a dealer?
