You would not believe the amount of people that poop inappropriately at work.
These stories come from the belly of the beast, where reports of truly bizarre behavior at work are voiced and documented, to become oral tradition on a Reddit thread.
Insane Human Resources issues like these give the sense that because work is the very last place to act inappropriately, people go to great lengths to do so on the sly. And those attempts at subtly make things even stranger.
Strange living arrangements, ceiling tile secrets, and misplaced sexual energy are apparently not uncommon complaints to the HR Department.
Dankuser2020 asked, "People who work in Human Resources, what is the weirdest sh*t you have seen?"
Finger Pointing (No. 2 Version)
"Call center employee calls HR to complain about their supervisor: 'He's abusive... he won't even let me leave my desk.' Supervisor calls HR to complain about employee: 'Can you please tell ____ that she's allowed to leave her desk. Oh my god... she's shi**ing in her trashcan!' "
"Caught a site manager with like 50+ pairs of panties hidden all over his office in Ziploc bags, a multitude of sex toys, and over 100k in cash stuffed in ceiling tiles. Took awhile to unravel all of that." -- kimurasftw
"So what did you do with the $75K?" -- Stunt_the_Runt
"Who would leave their Ziploc bags? Those things are expensive as f*ck." -- Hammer_Jackson
The Perfect Crime
"Guy came in to the interview in sweatpants and a hoodie, and said he didn't need the job because of how much money he was making illegally, but he wanted to have a job so the IRS didn't get suspicious."
"Weirdest part is I don't live in America, I very much doubt the IRS cares about Canadian tax returns."
A Legal Nightmare
"The family of the guy who passed away came to speak to us (it was in a factory environment). To get pension docs etc. We sent them away with a to do list."
"1 hour later reception pinged us saying Mr Xs family was here. Strange. The documents take a few days to get."
"Nope. New family."
"Yup. The guy had 2 different families, who were about to have a fun surprise."
Nick of Time
"My dad works in HR. He just told me about a day when they had to layoff about half of the company. It was crazy and there were a whole lot of moving parts that day."
"Unfortunately, in all the craziness, no one remembered to tell this one new hire that sadly the position he was hired for was no longer affordable."
"So he came in to the office only to see everyone clearing out their desks and leaving. And then...he got laid off. An hour into his first day."
Glorious Lunch Breaks
"Two people had cut a hole in the wall between their offices. They pushed their filing cabinets to hide the hole on both sides. Cleaning staff was asked to deep clean the offices one day and they found the hole."
"Both parties involved were married, not to each other. They were having sex through the wall."
Just Trying to Get Ahead
"The maintenance guy had been living up above the ceiling of the building. He had built a little cubby living area with electricity and a small fridge and everything." -- StaceysDad
"I respect that hustle so hard."
"Imagine how far ahead you could get in life if you didn't have to pay rent/utilities for just 1 year. I could afford a reasonable down payment on a house and stop this rent hell feedback loop." -- Neat_On_The_Rocks
"I used to work at a staffing agency that placed people at manufacturing positions. Everyone had to be drug tested at the office as part of the orientation."
"One guy failed his drug test at the lab. He came back to the office claiming that it wasn't his fault."
"He explained that he he was riding in a car and he stuck his head of the the window. Then, when the car passed under a bridge, someone threw a bunch of cocaine off the bridge, it hit him in the face, and he accidentally inhaled it."
A Digital Classroom of Sorts, I Suppose
"One of the candidates I was interviewing via Skype had a porn site up and open during a shared screen trial (to see how well he can use the digital classroom)."
"I had to remind him I can see his screen he goes, 'Oh yeah, sorry.' Next, instead of just closing it from the corner of his partially hidden window, he clicks open the window in full view and THEN closes it."
"That was nice."
Gotta Keep it Fresh
"Guy that carried a cooler every day was wiping sh!t on random walls and desks. It was his sh*t in his cooler. We thought it was his lunch. He got caught when he wiped it on the front desk directly in sight of the camera."
"Another guy had a colostomy bag that he refused to empty when it got full. You would find these trails of liquid poo randomly and we had to throw out four chairs that he ruined. He was fired quickly and tried to claim discrimination because he was a veteran."
