Employees Reveal The Most 'Dwight Schrute' Thing Their Coworker Has Ever Done.
1. It's more of a Jim to Dwight thing. A coworker wrapped up his entire cubicle in wrapping paper, but did it in a way where his setup looked like a present.
When he walked in, he looked so confused. He took about 2 minutes to analyze the situation, ripped a piece of it open, ducked under, and proceeded to take a couple of calls while his cubicle was still wrapped like a present.
2. The guy I share an office with once wrote me up for leaving my car keys on my desk. His reasoning was that someone could grab my keys, steal my car, get in a wreck and we could be held liable.
Another time, our director of engineering (my boss' boss) bought me a new office chair and he wrote up a 10 paragraph dissertation on how she was not allowed to buy me that chair and it must be returned immediately, and sent it to every upper management person in our division.
He also puts a read receipt on every single email he sends.
3. He took a photo (using his phone) of a manager using his phone in an area you are not allowed mobile devices and then proceeded to try and use the photo to be the manager in trouble.
4. My manager called me into her office to tell me about a career opportunity.
It was a pretty obvious email scam, some Chinese business looking for new employees. They needed all the applicants contact info, and promised to pay 150k USD in the first year of employment. It was super shady, and I started to laugh.
She got legitimately pissed off at me for laughing, and I tried to explain to her that it was a fake email, nothing but a scam. She actually told me to get out of her office and that I didn't know anything. I have no clue how she wound up in a managerial position.
5. He recently bought a motorcycle, but had to have a coworker drive it home since he doesnt have the license yet.
He recently went to a job convention since if he gets a job offer, he can petition for an early release from the army. So he walked around the office for an entire day with a stack of business cards talking about how many jobs offers he received. His applications are actually still pending.
He is a sergeant, but not many people take him seriously so he was put in charge of the companys' humvees and larger trucks instead of real people.
He does the "knife hand" whenever he tries to give orders to people, especially when he's on the phone with them.
There are so many more things, but these are all I have for now.
6. I'm a software engineer at Google. Everyone is Dwight. Everyone.
7. We were doing software development for a mid sized company. We had a few staff programmers and a team of consultants, "George" was the latest staff programmer we hired.
First couple weeks we had him and some other programmers from another department go through a 'boot camp' to get familiar with our code base and the patterns we were using. "George" immediately informs the architect that it was all "beneath" him. It was pretty much downhill from there.
We gave him a few chances at joining our group for lunch. "George" turned out to be the most inept conversationalist. He would just randomly interrupt the group to talk about the time he went to a taping of American Gladiators when he was a kid, how he was a black belt and had use chopsticks to eat so the other black belts wouldn't give him a hard time, how he bought some miniature cows so he wouldn't have to mow his lawn, etc... After the first week, we had to coordinate leaving for lunch via IM so we could leave without him asking to go along.
"George" also had a bit of a gas problem, loudly farting 3-4 times a day. It didn't help that we were in a bull-pen style cube farm with all mesh aeron chairs.
There were more character flaws, but you get the idea. Which all of that could have been overlooked, except for the fact that he (Continued)

he was also a terrible programmer. Every piece of code he touched needed to be fixed by someone else. We found out later that he had been posting his tasks to programming forum and would basically just cut and paste different replies till he got something that would compile, push it to prod (before we implemented a strict change control process) and then try to deny his changes just brought down the site.
He lasted a few months before the boss finally let him go. But it was okay because according to George "getting fired was god's way of telling him it's time to move onto better things."
8. There was a guy I used to work with that was the epitome of awkward/strange:
- On his first day, the general manager (his bosss boss) mentioned that if he has any insurance questions he should speak to Hulk (thats just what we called the guy, it obviously wasnt his name) and The Dwight responded with What? I dont see any angry green men around here? and the GM just kind of smirked and pointed to who he meant. So The Dwight proudly continued on with Did you know I have the exact same dimensions as superman? And the eyes to match This guy was not built like Superman, not one bit. I mean he was geeky and had dark hair, but not built like Superman.
- One of the guys mentioned he was picking up a new phone after work and already knew which one he was getting. The Dwight ruthlessly hounded him for the whole day with lecture after lecture about why his choice was wrong and printed out comparisons as to why he should be buying a different phone. He went with his initial choice; The Dwight wasnt happy.
- We used to have drinks on a Friday afternoon, because free booze, why not? During this time we would often end up debating about the hottest celebrities an comparing lists online. We were looking at and debating the historic list of worlds sexiest man when the topic of Pierce Brosnan came up. This was his chance to intervene with an anecdote about how his great aunt was on a plane with Pierce, and it came up (on the place) that the aunt had the same maiden name as Pierce. He then continued to say, So Im pretty much related to Pierce, you can see the family resemblance (despite being a married in aunt, not by blood). Naturally we thought he was joking and laughed, he was not joking.
-At my going away drinks, I had planned to head across to the pub with a small group of people. Not only did he decide to invite himself, but when we got there he ordered a shot, that he then proceeded to sip on for 30 minutes. WHO SIPS ON A SHOT. Its called a shot for heavens sake!
9. At a previous job he got reprimanded for bullying other staff members when it came to the fruit box. He would spend most of his day watching the fruit box and keeping track of how many people were taking and would then stop people from taking fruit when he felt they had taken more than their share. This resulted in a lot of complaints.
10. Ex-Marine cashier. All about following the rules and obeying the chain of command. One time an assistant manager gave him permission to ring up an item under another associate's number so she would get commission on it while she was busy with another customer. The cashier calls the store manager during a meeting, and actually tells him (Continued)

and actually tells him the assistant manager asked him to ring up an item under another employee's number which is against the rules. Store manager is just like "Yeah. It's fine. Whatever." Assistant manager rolls her eyes.
11. Claimed the ceiling fan (that made a clicking sound) was being used to communicate in Morse code, when translating it he came up with gibberish so he determined it was a code. He never was able to break it and my boss ended up just replacing the fan.
12. I work in a hospital pharmacy. One of our more senior clinical pharmacists has a day 1 teaching for everyone of his new residents or students. He explains, in a serious, matter of fact tone, how pens with caps are nowhere near as efficient as click pens. I forget the exact time, but he actually timed himself readying a click pen vs readying a capped pen. He then counted the amount of times he needed to write per day for a week to find the 'average' amount of time saved per day simply by utilizing a click pen.
If you are on his rotation, you are not allowed to use a capped pen because of this. If you do, and ignore his discussion about clicked pens vs. capped pens, he will actually grade you lower on your time management skills.
13. He asked me who my favorite super hero was. He then told me everything that sucked about Captain America through email and verbally in the breakroom for the rest of the day. All I could think of was:
"Who is your favorite super hero?"
14. He spilled his spaghetti he was eating for lunch all over his shoes, so he went to his car to grab his backup Birkenstocks.
15. I had a coworker i would regularly mess with. I actually convinced him that I had never seen an episode of the simpsons. He proceeded to actually (Continued)
Continue reading on the next page!
He proceeded to actually explain everything about it to me, all while i asked the dumbest questions i could think of. He would also share nice tidbits about his life, and how he still lived at home with his parents, and shared a room with his brother,and his brother's girlfriend. He was 32. But my favorite thing, he would leave love notes for a female coworker of ours after she hugged him once when she was drunk.
16. I was a nght manager at a restaurant and I had this one server who really wanted to get into management, I will call him Fred. The thing was, he was horrible at his job and would have been an even worse in any sort of management role. He was always eager to try and take charge and boss people around, which didn't accomplish anything because everyone knew he had no power of them. So one day I had to leave the restaurant floor to go to the basement where the office was located grab a couple of paychecks for the guys in the kitchen. As I was heading down stairs to I go to Fred and say, "You're in charge while I'm gone."
Now, I thought Fred would have known I was just joking, but no, he took it very serious. By the time it took me to walk down stairs, open a safe and walk up stairs he had let the power go straight to his head. Not only did he decide he needed to tell another server that she needed to step up or game because she wasn't doing well, she was new and doing great, he also decided that he needed to reorganize the plates in our pass through because he didn't think it was efficient enough. We had to have a long chat about appropriate work behaviour and boundaries after that.
17. He brought in a shotput-looking metal ball and sat in the office one day telling me to look and see how he's rolling it on his arm.
18. Store was closed for a good half an hour. I was in charge that night. Had a co worker say he was going to report me for not having my shirt tucked in despite the fact that
despite the fact that the store was closed and he was standing there with his not tucked in and then proceeds to hastily tuck his in...
19. I have a small pouch containing old silver coins and banknotes, in case I ever have to travel back in time.
I am my co-workers' Dwight Schrute.
20. A co-worker is a volunteer "paramedic" not sure how it works, because he has no certifications, well one day right outside the office there is a highway, a SUV flipped doing probably 70mph, this dude jumped out of his desk and ran into the middle of the highway trying to direct traffic and "save" the victims who happened to be fine, when the real police and paramedics showed up they made him leave but he stood in the grass and just watched like a supervisor.
21. When I worked in security I had a guard quit because we didn't all refer to each other as "Officer _____."
22. "Dwight" saw an attractive coworker approaching from another room. He walked toward her, passing through the doorway, and "bumped" his shoulder hard into the door frame. He said
Continue reading on the next page!
He said, "Ow, I got in a really good upper body workout this morning. Sometimes I forget I'm getting bigger."
23. His "friend" owns an Olive Oil company and every so often he basically spams all us non-stop about this great opportunity to buy high quality olive oil at a "heavily discounted price". I have about 5 liters of Olive Oil that have been sitting in my kitchen cupboard for years.
24. From some of our conversations I am 99% sure this one guy has an actual binder of documentation for every transgression/slight he has had from a certain co-worker over their 20 years working together.
25. Explained, unprompted, to a group of female coworkers that their biological clocks are ticking, and each minute after age 30 is "further wasted opportunity."
26. I worked as a receptionist at a local vet. One day the other receptionist brought in a huge bag of potatoes and started peeling them right there at the desk.
27. I am currently working with a colleague who eavesdrops everyones conversations and will butt in with his 'holier than thou' attitude. His favourite thing to do is listen to your conversation, tell you you're wrong, then (Continued)

then quickly google the subject, and then read out the wikipedia article to you.
28. About a year back a coworker sent an email to my boss recommending that after 4pm be designated the "quiet hour" because they felt that people were starting to slack off after 4 and that banning talking would increase productivity.
29. There was a woman who kept a notebook at her desk. One of those marble composition ones. She logged every minute, and I do mean EVERY MINUTE, that she couldn't work due to an IT related issue. And to be clear, it's not because she was getting in trouble for underperforming. She just did this.
If there was a server outage or network problem, she logged it. Okay, fine. Annoying but fine. But if she made a mistake or deleted a file or input something incorrectly or locked up her system by doing the one thing we told her not to do on almost a daily basis (queuing multiple requests to an old database that processed them sequentially)? She logged the time she spent experiencing the error and then the time she had to wait for it to be fixed.
We had two techs for a medium sized business. So if she was in a queue for support for half an hour, IT cost her thirty one minutes of productivity that day. She brought this book with her to every review and meeting where her performance was evaluated. As a matter of policy, any and every issue she raised had to be checked with IT to see if we were at fault. Half a year's worth of tickets sometimes. And it would be stupid crap like "I couldn't work for seven minutes because my computer went blank!" "User rested her foot on the surge protector switch."
30. I had a coworker go on a diet where the only thing that mattered was the weight of the food you were eating.
If it was light you could eat as much as you want, heavy, you have to watch.
Therefore a Snickers bar was better than a salad or broccoli. Cotton candy, you could eat as much as you want cause it weighs next to nothing.
31. Every time the boss is gone for the day he puts this one girl in charge and she always asks if she can fire certain people.
Those who grew up between the '80s and early 2000s have a long memory of items and experiences that either went out of style or disappeared completely.
From early PC games to Blockbuster to favorite snacks, there's a lot to miss from childhood.
But the odd thing is how quietly some of these things went away, and how few people seemed to notice.
Feeling nostalgic, Redditor lukiiiiii asked:
"What quietly went away without anyone noticing?"
"ROFL (Rolling on the Floor Laughing) dropped off of the face of the planet, and now we just go straight from LOL (Laughing Out Loud) to LMAO (Laughing My A** Off)."
"I've been using it way more lately because of this. ROFL; can't let the classics die."
Save Those Box Tops!
"Actual toys in cereal boxes and Cracker Jack boxes."
The Early Facebook Years
"Facebook 'Poke' wars."
How the Times Have Changed
"People calling them 'camera phones.'"
"When you turn off the TV, how the image would shrink to a dot before slowly fading away."
"When you turn off the TV and then you run your finger on the screen and hear the crackle and feel the static on the glass."
Positive Environmental Change
"It was a huge environmental issue in the late 70s through the early 90s. Rain was acidic and damaged fertile areas among other things."
"In the US, there was much research done, and eventually industrial regulations were put into place. Companies were allowed to decide what approach they chose to take as long as the results showed the appropriate amount of reduction in sulfur dioxide emissions."
"Unfortunately, positive news doesn't sell, so news outlets did not do justice to reporting this success. As we went into the 2000s, hardly anyone remembered what was done."
Can We Say, 'Nom Nom Nom'?
"McDonald's all-day breakfast menu."
"The pandemic killed a lot more than just people. I really miss McDonald's all-day breakfast."
"And being able to go to Walmart at 2 AM."
The Days of Landlines and Cords
"I live in a rural area and have to pay for landline service to have internet. Since I have to pay for something so stupid, I figured I'd have to get something stupid."
"...So I got the hamburger phone from the movie 'Juno.'"
"Not gonna lie, the landline has come in clutch a few times, and holding a hamburger to your ear is amusing every time. 10/10 would recommend."
Late-night Grocery Runs
"I think people have noticed now but at the time, nobody noticed it was happening: the closing of 24-hour stores. I live in a major city and we don’t have a single 24-hour grocery store ever since the pandemic."
"In a World Where..."
"Movie trailers with that deep voice guy [Don LaFontaine] doing the voiceovers."
"SoBe. I think the last time I had one was at Quizno's."
"[cue 'X-Files' Music]"
Gizzard the Taco Bell Dog
"Taco Bell used to have a chihuahua as their mascot. Little dude just disappeared one day, and anyone born after 2000 probably doesn't even know what I am talking about."
"Google+ was the only social media our school forgot to block on our laptops, so I used it a lot. RIP."
Some of these really brought back some deeply-engrained memories for the '80s to '00s kids, and it's true that many of them blipped out of existence quietly.
But if this teaches us anything, it doesn't mean that "out of sight, out of mind" also has to mean "out of heart."
And let's have a moment of silence for the vocal stylings of Don LaFontaine and Gizzard the talking Taco Bell dog.
We all know that the human body is very complex.
But even with all the recorded and available science, there are certain things about our bodies that continue to elude us, and medical experts can still get stumped about how the human form reacts unpredictably.
Curious to discover some of the mystifying yet unsettling truths about our anatomy, Redditor Hot_Banana_Ice-cream asked:
"What is a creepy fact about the human body?"
Now, observe this.
"If you wear glasses which vertically inverts your vision long enough, your brain will correct it, and you'll see things normal. But when your take those glasses off, everything will look upside-down again until brain recalibrates again."
"Our brain filters out a lot of what we see along with just straight making sh*t up based on extrapolation."
"My favorite is the blind spot at the center of each eye, where the optic nerve is."
"A lot of people don't even know it exists, and even if they do, it is bigger than people often think."
"And it's also really easy to demonstrate to people if you know how. It's one of my favorite bar tricks - all you need is a pen and a napkin to draw a cross and a dot."
Alternate demo: https://faculty.washington.edu/chudler/chvision.html
"Edit: If it doesn't work, you're doing something wrong - not getting close enough, the image is too small on your phone, you're not closing the correct eye or not keeping your gaze fixed on the cross."
"It isn't because you don't have a blind spot. Unless you're a squid, you have a blind spot. All vertebrates have them."
The workings of our innards are out of this world.
The intestines are covered by a double "fleece" of peritoneum. See it like a blanket.
When your intestines get damaged for whatever reason, this blanket starts moving out of itself and crawling upwards towards the place which has the injury. It will stay there until the injury is recovered. And then move on again.
Maybe not the most creepy fact, but definitely interesting in my opinion.
Do Do That Doo-Doo
"We don't just have one anal sphincter. When poo comes along it passes another inner sphincter which isn't under voluntary control."
"Sensory cells can detect whether you're about to pass gas or solid. From toddler age on, you can decide to go or not to go. If the time isn't right (e.g. at a friend's house or no toilet nearby), the inner sphincter can push the poo back and store it there for later."
"That's why sometimes if you need to do a number two but don't go, the urge goes away after about 20 minutes later. (But seriously, go if you can. Constipation risk.)"
"Gas can't be pushed back so easily, so we sometimes toot by accident when moving or engaging the core."
The Same Lining
"The inside of your cheek and your rectum are lined by the same type of tissue."
You don't always have control of your body.
Taste Of Curiosity
"The front of your tongue is curious, constantly patrolling, and autonomous. It chases the dentist around your mouth and you aren’t even aware of it. So embarrassing and weird/creepy."
"In dental school, I learned this fact when practicing taking impressions on each other. My buddy’s tongue kept licking my finger. I asked him to quit licking me, and he was like 'I can’t help it!' And then we switched places and my tongue wouldn’t leave him alone.And for those of you that don’t think your tongue does this: some of you are right. But the majority of you just think your tongue is behaving, but it is all over the place without you even knowing."
Dancing With The Dead
"Bodies will move as they’re coming out of rigor. I’ve been bumped by a few (I’m a coroner). Bodies can also make sounds as the remaining air/ gas leaves… 2am in the morgue and I thought I was in COD zombies."
Wonder of wonders.
The Only Way Out
"When you get laser tattoo removal the ink doesn’t disappear, you pee it out."
"Your body’s immune system breaks down the pigments of ink and it flows in your blood stream, gets processed through your kidneys, then you pee out the ink."
Our soul-containing vessel is a mysterious wonder unique to us.
We should do whatever it takes to take great care of it because it's the only one we've got.
If we don't, they might turn on us.
When the global pandemic hit in march of 2020, countless companies saw themselves going under.
Sadly, some companies, from a wide variety of businesses, simply couldn't adapt to working under the parameters of social distancing, or couldn't adapt in time, resulting in them permanently closing their doors.
Many people were sad to see these companies close, while many others were even sadder that some companies managed to pull through and stay open.
Indeed, long before Covid-19 wreaked havoc on the world, some companies and corporations people felt were actually detrimental to society would be doing the world a favor by going out of business.
Redditor param_T_extends_THOT was curious to find out which companies people fell into this less than prolific category, leading them to ask:
"Which company could go out of business tomorrow and it would be to the betterment of this world?"

...even if Shakespeare in Love remains a romantic gem...
Even if society as a whole seems to become more tolerant with each passing year, bullying still remains an ever-growing problem.
Particularly at schools.
Some might say bullying has only gotten worse, as social media often means children are no longer safe when they're out of school hallways and in the comfort of their own homes.
What is perhaps most disturbing and perplexing about bullying is there is never a justifiable reason for people to behave so appallingly.
Often, children bully other children to make them seem cool or powerful in the eyes of others.
Most of the time, they will also pinpoint a certain thing about their helpless victims as a feeble excuse to justify their bullying.

"I finally asked one of them what I ever did to them, and they said 'you were born'."
"How do you even respond to that statement."
"I just got a sharp pang after seeing that phrase again."- msprang
Ignoring It Is Enabling It
"I was bullied from age 6 to age 13 every day for my surname (a word for a hunchback in my language) , my looks, my nature, me knowing English, reading, drawing and just existing overall."
"I f*cking hated middle school."
"My mom tried standing up for me, but no one cares in Slavic countries and the teachers didn't give a sh*t even though they saw everything, it's all part of growing up."
"My father ignored my constant tears and the terror I experienced in those years."
"I was attacked, beaten, and targeted whenever i would leave my flat."
"I was stabbed with screwdrivers and dull knives, chased around the neighborhood by kids on bikes while they threw rocks at me."
"I was only invited to birthday parties so that the kids would have someone to terrorize and gang up on."
"I always hated birthdays, but my mom though maybe the children would be kinder to me out of school."
"But that's that."
"Once I began high school I was around all new people, and I decided to play as a tough girl and stood up for myself on the get-go."
"But it turns out art school mostly brought other bullied kids together and I had the 4 best years of my life there with other kind and loving people who just wanted to make friends and have fun."- Cropalitet

Perhaps the saddest, or most infuriating, cases of bullying are when people bully others for sharing likes or interests they have themselves.
Case in point, and true story: being bullied constantly through 2nd and 3rd grade for liking Mighty Morphin Power Rangers."
