Three guys were taking long lunches for a few weeks... Turns out they were taking conference calls as their own standalone agency from an empty office, inside our office, with their own paying clients.

Actually the most epically dumb one was the dude that created and bought his own stock photos... He got away with it till his home address popped up twice in the system... as the payment address for the stock. Dummy would have got away with it if he used a PO box.

An AD I worked with asked to have the carpet changed in his office and was denied. So he took an X-Acto and cut out the letters “fuck you” 2 feet tall in the carpet. He was gone that afternoon, and new carpet was installed the next day. So I guess he got his wish.

A guy I worked with claimed he had shingles. So he worked from home for a few weeks. He’d come into the office for half a day and then go home. Work from home another 2 weeks. He’d come into the office for a day and go home. Someone saw a pic of home on Facebook kayaking and asked him for a Drs note. He couldn’t produce and ended up getting fired. All in all, it was about 2 months. Plus, he didn’t have to pay back moving expenses.

Needing words of encouragement from people they are in consulting. It took me months of applying for consulting jobs, hundreds of rejections, before I got my first consulting job. I got laid off. Now I am having the same difficulty in finding a job.Rejections from every consulting firm, even firms that are still hiring during these times. Consulting is what I want to do. I did not give up when I was looking for a consulting job. I am not going to give up on consulting. Hope to find another job.
