I've had to investigate who saves their shitty TP to throw out in the communal garbage beside the sink instead of down the toilet....even after a sign was put up.

I had to investigate who was pooping on the floor in the men’s bathroom, and then fire that guy without touching the subject of pooping, and then he was on Bachelorette

I can’t say funniest but weirdest was when a Customs Patrol Officer contacted me inquiring about the fishing boat my boss/owner of the company; was selling and was I aware it was sold and about to cross into Mexico.

One of my first jobs in Corporate HR Guy comes in for a disciplinary hearing His job is on the line for embezzling funds Walks into the HR execs office wearing bib overalls with no shirt on underneath and one of the overall clips undone so his nipple is showing. My comment was “Perhaps he doesn’t realize the gravity of the situation and what a career limiting move it might be to walk into a termination investigation with his nipple showing “

Investigating who left poop that was found in the office and having to send a company communication. We never figured it out.

Half of the comments are related to one common place - the toilet!

I think leveraging an offer to get more money is the worst. Now your bosses know you want to leave, you are the fist option during layoffs and you look like an ass the other company.
