What is the Craziest shit you have done at work?

Ok so I was working at hollywood video. And we are open every fucking day of the year. So it's christmas eve and I wrote an e-mail to the corporate office attentioning it to the CEO and executives calling them black hearted bastards, that while we are working for low wages, they are probably sipping expensive champaign and playing golf somewhere.

I got called into the office by the store manager who was pissed as fuck. He told me he read the letter as did the district manager. Well they gave me christmas eve off and I wasn't fired because I guess they had an open door policy?

Looking back on it, it was my teen angst and I still think it's hilarious.

i dont know if it counts, but at the last christmas party at work, i was so drunk that i'm lacking like 6-7 hours in my memory.

the next day a lot of people, that i had never spoken to before, suddenly knew my name.

Good for you!


And, hell, c'mon . . . . it was Hollywood Video. I'm sure there was a RadioShack two doors down the way that would've hired you anyway.

LOL I was 16 and my first job. Funny part is the store manager asked me to be his daughters Godfather.

one of my former co-workers brought a sex toy to the office (don't ask) and at random times during the day, we would put the intercom on for the whole office and turn the toy on next to the phone. Our boss was going insane trying to figure out what the buzzing noise was and who was doing it. For a while he thought there was something wrong with the phones but I don't think he ever caught on to what it really was.

Off-roading in our golf cart for computer nerds

Also, we initiate the new techs by taking them through "the tunnels". They are tunnels that go everywhere on campus. They are not made for people, very dark, cramped (have to crawl or bend down) and contain the heating/cooling ducts and return ducts from building to building. We like to give the new tech a flashlight and a radio in case they need to call. They have to find the end and then find their way back from whatever building they end up in.

My first job, one night, it was raining, and there were no customers. So I ran out side and grabbed a snail and sent it through an oven.
Later I grabbed another one and tried to figure out which mixture of chemicals would kill it the quickest. The winner was this bleach type power that literally ate away the entire soft part of the snail leaving only the shell. Better that table salt.

At my first "real" job after college, we all hated this one woman who worked there. One day a few of us made a Kleenex doll that was supposed to represent her, complete with bright red lipstick for the mouth, and burned it in a metal trash can. She walked in while the smell of smoke was still lingering in the air and asked what was going on! I wish I could remember how we explained that one away.

I've bought tickets on TM while my students were working.

That's not all that crazy, is it? : pathetic:

a long while back i once had a cpl of clients that were dancers, and we made an exceptional car deal in my secluded office with mirrored windows where you could see out but ppl couldn't see in.

once when i was quitting my job at a cadillac dealership i tossed a box of crayons at the desk manager (who was obnoxious as they come, spoiled rich, owner's son etc..) and said -

"color
me
gone"
