We all know bosses can be crazy but Lord knows so can employees. When you hire someone you are taking a huge leap of faith that they aren't totally looney tunes. You can vet people sure, but crazy will always finds a way to slip under the radar. What some employees think is appropriate work behavior can be astonishing.

Redditor u/weirdplayer12 wanted to hear from all the bosses out there by asking.... Bosses of reddit, what was the craziest thing an employee did during work?


What size shoe are you?

He sent pictures of his feet to other employees. He also talked to the girls about their feet, and sometimes asked to see them. Enough girls complained, so I fired him. PirateOnAnAdventure

Can I get you a beer too?

Once had a housekeeper on light duty, like 65 years old as it is. One day I gave her 4 stay over rooms, so just refresh the room as the guests are staying another night. As I passed one of those rooms there were 4 guests standing outside and couldn't get in because their key didn't work, which happens often. I tried their key and it lit up as if the door was bolted from inside. Occasionally the bolt will get accidentally thrown as it closes so I called security to use our override key to open it. The guests had already been there 25 minutes trying new keys by the time I got security there. Security opens the door and there's my housekeeper, on the couch, feet up on the table, watching TV.

Killing off Characters....

Had one girl fake her father's death to get time off. We knew it wasn't true because her sister got married a few months after and the father was in the wedding photos. Before this incident it was her grandmother that died. She forgot to tell granny that cuz granny showed up with food one day. She also had an imaginary daughter. dc199227

Out with the Sauce....

Back in 1996 or so, I had a young high school kid at my pizza restaurant come in high.... I told him to leave because kids that are high can't make good pizza for others (that's a different story). He got pissed off and while I was in the walk in fridge, came through the back area and take a pee in a five gallon bucket of sauce. He then placed the bucket back with the rest and yelled that he peed in a bucket of sauce.

We had to throw out all the sauce and clean the buckets before we could make more. No, he wasn't employed after that. Nautiwow

I once had one slap me. Right in front of my Assistant Manager and several employees. Worst part is, she was my Assistant Manager's girlfriend. Fired her of course. He quit a week later. ShrimpinGuy

Sooo much grass....

I don't care if employees get high. I definitely can't judge there. But I had this one guy who was supposed to be push mowing the front yard of a client's house. I walked around from the back yard and found him mowing the middle of the road. By the time I chased him down he was too high to use intelligible words. I got him to wait in the truck and fired him that day. josephalbright1

With a Spoon.... 

I had an employee go home for lunch (he lived nearby) where he got in a fight with his girlfriend. He took her eye out with a spoon. Bunch of us were out by the loading dock when he ran by with police in pursuit. We watched him get tackled to the ground and arrested. Maxamillion-X72

Beanbag Bonkers.... 

One of my team hooked up with a married HR staffer on a pile of beanbags in an unused part of the office. Turns out you shouldn't put your d**k in crazy, especially when that crazy has access to your payroll, 401k and benefits administration. He was fortunate that she didn't totally screw him over, but I'm sure there was a level of mutually assured destruction that kept her from going full on bonkers. ibrewbeer

When you gotta go....

It wasn't during my watch, but I had to deal with the aftermath: an employee pooped in the walk-in freezer because he was 'too afraid to ask permission' to use the restroom. SpaceCommanda

The Lunch Menu....

My first day at a new job I caught an employee smoking meth. So that was pretty crazy I guess. Fired on the spot. shoddydig

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

Redditor u/Animeking1108 wanted to discuss how the education system has ideas that sometimes are just more a pain in the butt than a daily enhancement... What was the dumbest rule your school enforced?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.

U/Tynoa2 asked: What's your favourite historical fact?
