I had a young lady try to stab me with a knife. If I had deserved it that would be one thing but I was just delivering supplies and had poor timing. After that she was very nice to me.

Almost killed my boss with a forklift. Kinda wish I’d fucked him up now.

There was this young psycho blonde chick that told a married middle aged coworker that she would be his girlfriend if he lost weight. She was most likely just fucking with him, but the guy went on a liquid diet.
Not sure how everything turned out because she got fired (she was a cutter and would do it right out in front of people). The guy quit not long after.

I’ve seen lots of crazy shit in my line of work.

One funny one....

Went in to turn an apartment once.
Usually the past residents leave shit behind that needs to be thrown out before you get to work.
This one kid had about 47 tubs of butter he’d left behind.
I mean they were everywhere.
Curiosity got the best of me so I opened them up.
Most of them still had 1/4-1/2 left in them.
In every single tub you could see finger marks from where he’d been scooping the shit out with his hands to jack off or fuck somebodies butthole.

Really strange.
Why not just go buy some Astroglide?

I've personally called 911 three times and the cops innumerable times. I work with a lot of homeless and drug addicts, which is very often the same thing. I've had people OD in our bathrooms or their units, I had a lady slit her wrists in our hallway, I've had people chasing each other with knives, I've had someone break into 24 units overnight, I've had a car stolen off the property, I've seen someone try to climb over our fence and absolutely shred themselves on razor wire, I've found people having sex, I've caught people shitting, etc. It gets nuts. Always something to talk about.

Never found a meth lab at one of our facilities, but people try and sell out of their units all the time. We also have to check under the toilet bowl lids and inside the paper towel dispenser because we find drugs in there all the time.

I figured dealing was just a given but meth labs have a tendency to blow shit up when some crankster with 0 chemistry experience starts mixing dangerous chemicals together.

Another fun on: the firm I worked for had to convince a life insurance company to pay out on a case where the insurance company said the insured committed suicide. No, she was the VICTIM of a murder-suicide. I have a few other good ones but they’ll wait until I can remember some that I can edit out some information.

A radio DJ I used to work with poured a shot over his balls at a bar gig and a female listener drank it. He put his balls on top of the shot glass, poured it, and she drank it right up. Owner pulled me aside and said "um...let's not let that happen again".

Another DJ used to do bikini pillow fighting at bar gigs. Was my account so I had to go out and buy the bikini's.. Lol. What girls would do though is wrap the end of the pillow cases up with their fists and punch each other instead of hitting with the fluffy part. Many of nights ended with bloody noses, etc...

Another DJ and I were at a strip bar that was one of my accounts and after a few drinks asked me, "Ever been kicked out of a strip club" No. "Well get ready", and he hops up on stage and start trying to climb the stripper pole. They just laughed and just got his drunk as down. Another one of those, "let's not let that happen again".

I was very good with a forklift and actually went to classes. This was before the classes. The walls between the offices and the warehouse were very thin in an old building we were in at the time. My boss was standing by the office wall when the forks went through the wall. He turned into a complete prick and by the end I'd always wish the forks had been just a little longer. Fucking asshole.

I was part of a management/ownership group that saw the company controller steal $16.5M out of company coiffeurs.

The only good news is I wasn't the guy running finance.

I work at a Television station - about 10-12 years ago, while working in the control room broadcasting our local 6pm newscast, I heard our producer yell out Oh My God!. Everyone looked up and had similar comments or started laughing when they looked up on the monitor wall and one of the preview screens was showing some hardcore porn. Luckily it didn't go out on-air to people's homes!

yup! I work in television as well and I had a fellow MCO back in the early 90s try to watch some porn via the preview monitor and DID actually take it to air! oops. I would say most of us old school TV & radio people have plenty of crazy stories....not that many in today's stations.

We had a great idea for a contest to see who could sit on blocks of ice the longest to win whatever it was at a bar. Didn't count on how drunk they would be. One dude just pissed his pants so he didn't have to get up. Eventually we had to flip a coin to determine a winner which pissed off all the people with numb butts.

:D :D :D . A friend of mine was part of the morning show that did the "hold your blatter while drinking water contest" where someone died. I know there was a big lawsuit that changed the landscape of radio show contest. Fortunately for her she was on tape saying, "is this safe?" Should we stop? , and someone from promotions shunned her off.

Didn't actually see this one, just heard about it.....this being from when I was working at Macy's. Apparently one of the sales associates in the men's department was posting ads online, inviting other men to come see him at work for "oral fun" in the dressing rooms. (not sure what site this was on, only that this guy posted his picture, and was specific about where and when he was working)

There's an African American lady at my office that is a total bitch and one of the most racist people I know. She works in "Diversity" and fancies herself as "inclusive" and "a voice for under-served communities" though her definition of diversity begins and ends with "A" - African-American. Somewhere along the way, someone convinced her she was fabulous and the epitome of a "queen", so she's a diva who believes she's far more important than she really is.

She's not above race-baiting - having threatened to pull her work from our graphic designer and hiring a black one if he didn't stop working on other people's projects (that were due) and put her at the top of his priority list. She's also made accusations of racism and singling her out against staffers who challenges her so it's uncomfortable just being in the same room as her...you never know when she's going to get offended or triggered.

Her behavior at work would fit the definition of a workplace bully to a tee.

There's no accountability, a huge disrespect for others in the office and our vendors, a purposeful intent to create a toxic work place, and overall, just a lazy fuck who gets a free ride to the point where staffers have referred to her as "Teflon" cause nothing ever sticks no matter how much she's burned someone with her bad behavior.

She especially loves to prey on and attempts to push around staff she perceives as lower than her, or new staff.

Did I mention she's also in her 50's, obese (at least 300lbs), wig-wearing, fake nails, and when wearing her "signature" black dress, looks like a garbage bag stuffed with cottage cheese? Yet is more demanding than a "Mariah Carey" backstage rider.

A long time ago , I worked at a company where the owner was a raging old (in his early 60's) alcoholic.

Open up the cabinet in the men's washroom, boom, a bottle of Grey Goose vodka, next to the new rolls of toilet paper.

Take out some new paper for the photocopier from a shelf, Bam, Its Cold Gin Time Again , with a bottle of Bombay Sapphire gin hidden behind the reams of paper.

It was comedy gold each week , trying to figure our where and what type of alcohol we would find LOL.

The owners wife also worked at the company , and he was always trying to hide his bottles where she would not find them.....


He would drink almost anything , as long as it had an alcohol content in the double digits.

Had the whole office on lockdown because of some idiots with assault rifles trying to "rob the bank". I work at the head office of a banking group, not a branch office that handles cash....

Once had a client, an insurance company in the US, who had to pay out workers comp to a phone sex professional. She injured her wrists from masturbating several times a day and the court ruled it was an integral part of her work tasks...
