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


A girl in a non-clinical pediatric hospital job. She was like 19/20 and kind of weird. Apparently she had a crush on me but I brushed it off because she was weird and obviously that was unprofessional. I knew she came from a relatively messed up home, but she was fairly normal outside of being goofy and awkward. One day she got caught giving a patient a blowjob in his room and my first thought was “OH MY GOD, this is a pediatric hospital” but luckily for her the patient was 18.


Back in the retail book industry in ages past I had this employee. He would take a ‘bathroom break' anytime an employee got called into the office. Why? Well, because he had discovered (somehow) that if you went to the men's room and stood on the toilet and lifted one of the ceiling tiles, you could sort of make out conversations in the manager's office that was adjacent. He also discovered during one of his frequent smoke breaks that there was an access hallway for grounds maintenance (this was in a shopping mall of sorts) that also had a ladder that went to the roof. He'd occasionally vanish and basically go sit on the roof. If no one could find him, he couldn't get in trouble, he figured.


As a Sergeant in the Army, my unit was out on a two-week field exercise. One of my soldiers decided to drink a dozen boxes of shelf-stable whole milk. He gets sick and has to go back to the rear. We find out later that he is quite lactose intolerant and knew it for years before going to the field. He bragged to some of his buddies about the scam and one of the other NCO's heard him. That started the investigation that got him demoted for malingering.


In the navy we had a broken accommodation ladder (it's a stairway attached to the ship for embarkation and debarkation that isn't always used if there is a brow on the pier) it was due for inspection and rather than fail the inspection the guys just unbolted it and let it fall overboard.
