Called in Dead

Our office received some devastating news—a coworker had been killed in a horrible skiing accident. Everyone was upset, but one lady was completely distraught—even though she had supposedly only met him a few times. Well, it turns out that the distraught lady was having an affair with the “dead” guy.

His wife found out and he figured that calling in dead was the best way to dump the mistress. He pretended to be his own wife and called himself in dead. One might imagine that after the wife foun… Read More

Halloween Horror Story with Eight Legs

As people in the office were putting up Halloween decorations one woman asked that they be place far away from her because she was afraid of spiders. In fact, her exact words were, “Please put those over there. I am deathly afraid of spiders.”

Unfortunately, one of her co-workers thought it would be funny to poke fun at this woman’s fears. This woman was 50-something and was recovering her sight in an eye where she had recently suffered from a detached retina. Her co-worker approached her fro… Read More

Get a Life!

I work at a gas station that sells “made to order” food. Most people who call out of work will give some type of legitimate excuse as to why they can’t come in, they are sick, etc. One Friday night a 3rd shifter called to say he wasn’t coming in that night. His reason? “I have a life” and hung up… Read More

The Un-Lunch Lady

There was this lady at my first job out of college who would sneak away into the lunch room, which was in the basement of the building and steal lunches. She’d go through all of them taking bites or eating it all. If she took a bite of something she didn’t like, she’d throw it in the garbage. Staff would come downstairs to find their lunches devoured or in the trash with one bite taken out of it. This all came to a head one day when some guy was up in arms after his meatloaf sandwich fell victim… Read More

There is No Substitution for Experience

We have this one relatively crazy woman that works in her shop. She’s got a son who at the time of this story was around 16. This woman decides that her son needed some experience sexually with an older woman so she actually went to one of the women in our accounting department who was around 60 or so and asked her if she’d be interested in having sex with her 16-year-old son because she wanted his first time to be with someone experienced. I shit you not, I was sitting outside our HR person’s o… Read More

Umm…that wasn’t for me was it?

That moment when an HR leader emails a dick pic to his HR entire team. He claims it was for his wife. Word on the street is that it was meant for a specific female on the team. He forgot to DELETE EVERYONE ELSE’S NAME.  Suddenly he had plenty of free time to spend with his wife. Have always wondered if she knew why!?… Read More

Sexy Techno?

Long story…short. Got a call, which led to an investigation, which led to a job-protected leave, which finally led to a termination!

First month on the job and got a call: a married restaurant manager had taken a hostess out to his car to listen to a CD of the manager and his wife having sex overlayed with techno music. And no, this was not 1994!

One thing leads to another (on a different day I believe) and the hostess ends up pregnant with the manager’s baby.

The investigation ensues… Read More

Don’t Be Unattractive

At my multi-state restaurant company, we have a typical non frat policy for our managers. A staff member reported an incident where a manager found her on Facebook and started sending her notes through Messenger, asking her out. When we interviewed her, she told us about the messages and then shared the following: “The only only that really bothers me about this whole thing is that of all of the cute managers on the team, the ugliest one asked me out.”… Read More

Wigging Out

I received a call from a General Manager because a young man working for him would not remove his wig because it’s sexist and racist. “Ok… let’s change our approach,” I thought. So we created a policy stating that wigs must be restrained in the same manner as natural hair.

Two weeks later, I get a phone call from an upset guest stating that a “very unattractive lady” told her “she” was too pregnant for this $h*t! Needless to say, we have parted ways.

Thank goodness we don’t need to … Read More
