I had an employee who was having trouble validating her Flexible Spending Account charges. She was very upset and had no idea why the FSA administrator had rejected her documentation. She submitted reciepts for the reimbursement of the cost of insulin for her family member, Frankie. Problem is, Frankie was her beloved corgi dog… Read More
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
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
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
A manager needed some references checked right away. He called in the information over the phone. I jotted it down on a post it and passed it off to my office mate, who offered to check the reference for me since I was in the middle of something.
I get back to what I’m doing. The next thing I hear is her asking if someone named “Krystal” had worked for them previously. “Yes, Krystal Burgers,” she repeats. I all but fall out of my chair in hysterics and hang up the phone for her as I try to ga… Read More
From WWLTV.com: A fired sheriff’s office employee, who reportedly died in 1999, was actually using another woman’s identity to earn a six-figure salary before she was caught. A jury deliberated for 15 minutes before finding 41yo Cindy T. White guilty of charges of identity theft over $1,000 Wednesday. Prosecutors say White had listed on her resume that she obtained a bachelor’s degree from Tulane University and a master’s degree from Hebrew University in Jerusalem. Investigators say White was hi… Read More
A first for me. Had a candidate start an interview, then tell the hiring manager to hold on someone is at the door… client hears… “this room CLEAR,” “bathroom CLEAR,” etc. The client heard the police sweeping the house! The candidate never returns, then the police are in front of the computer and the last thing the hiring manager/client heres is “What is this guy… some kind of YouTuber?” and that’s it. On the plus side, we recieved immediate feedback! :-)… Read More
I used to manage a Blockbuster video store. After one particularly awful interivew, I walked the candidate out toward the parking lot and the shoplifting detection alarms began to sound. It turned out that the candidate stuffed three DVDs in hus suit jacket before being called to the office for an interview. He did not get the job. Nor did he get Mama Mia, Fools Gold, or High School Musical 3 for that matter!… Read More
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
