23 Bosses Confess The Craziest Thing They’ve Seen An Employee Do


I was a supervisor at a bulk food store. Had a staff member who was responsible for sweeping the floors. He would regularly snack on what he swept up.


HR hired an employee to work on the mine I manage. He showed up 45 minutes late wearing shorts and crocs. I proceeded to fire him on the spot. Got a framed letter from corporate jokingly congratulating me for having the shortest tenured employee in company history.


I once fired a guy and he tried to go back to work. His crush was in the clock in room when I had to tell him to leave again. He cried on my shoulder as I walked him out of the building. Not because I fired him but because I told him to leave in front of his crush.


Had an employee go for a drug test (mandatory for all drivers with a CDL). He used his 10 year old sons urine and warmed it up on the defroster in his car on the way to the test center. The center called and told us they were surprised he was alive. His urine was 130 deg. Needless to say he wasn't employed much longer.
