What was "the incident" at your adult job?*

At a law firm, a lawyer raped a paralegal in the library after the Christmas party. It was very quickly discovered the same night. A litigator at the firm immediately negotiated a large settlement and NDA with the victim. The rapist was fired on the spot.

*Inspired by the “ What was "the incident" in your high school?” thread linked below.

I've told this before, BUT, a big fat woman at my workplace (who always wore a mumu) complained to the boss about the new employee wearing too much perfume. Nothing happened and she complained again the next day. Then she suddenly keeled over and had a heart attack and died right there on the floor. She was about 55-60 or so. I always wondered how the new lady dealt with this event (I didn't know her).

One of the assistant managers stole tens of thousands of dollars from a dormant account. The family had lost track of the account for years, but finally came in to update the passbook and there were all the withdrawals they never signed for or knew about. They could tell he did the transactions.

He went to jail. And he did minimal time.

A senior partner at a law firm I worked at about 10 years ago brought in millions in revenue every year. One year the firm had a partner retreat in California which meant that all the partners from all the offices all over the country showed up. He got wasted one night, started harassing a partner from another firm telling her that he wanted to sleep with her. He followed her to the Rite Aid or whatever it was next-door and kept hitting on her. He cornered her in there and groped her.

She immediately reported it, he denied it and they pulled the security footage. They fired his ass on the spot.

A coworker with mental issues had a breakdown at work. One day they found her under her desk, in the fetal position, just mumbling to herself. They knew she needed help. I was the dept. secretary and had to coordinate local police and EMS for the end of the day as they did an intervention. Once the police and EMS were in place (it was after hours), they told me I could leave. I left the building and sat in my car. I was able to see them wheel her out on a gurney.

While it didn't happen at the office, but...

My boss, who I considered a mentor, had been not coming into the office for several days, which was unusual for him. He did call in each day to check on things and to answer any questions. One day, he called and specifically asked for me. After a short conversation he said words to the effect of "I just want to say I love you and thank you for so many years of loyalty and support." I was a bit shaken by what he said, and shared my thoughts with a co-worker. She said "Oh, that's just Bobby being Bobby. He's such a softie."

I was at a restaurant later that night when I received a call from a good friend. My boss had jumped from the roof of his condo building earlier in the day and died on the sidewalk. He was so disfigured that no one recognized him. It was not until his teenage son came home and found his mother's dead body in her bedroom - stabbed numerous times - that the police put the story together and realize it was a murder/suicide.

An assistant vice president (male, wormy, married) started an affair with a supervisor who worked in a department he oversaw (female, less than smart, single). Other than a few whispers among those who worked the most closely with the supervisor, they did a good job of keeping it under wraps. She enjoyed the managerial largess he bestowed upon her in exchange for the strange she provided him.

One night the two of them went out drinking with a group to entertain some visiting execs from the home office. After the group broke up, they foolishly went back to work and kept the party going in his office. A manager from IT had to come in during the night to deal with a crashed server or something, and along the way discovered a large pool of vomit on the hallway carpet. While investigating the situation, she found the AVP and the supervisor in his office having sexy times. Both were sloppy drunk and one of them had made the puke puddle during an attempted dash to the toilet.

The AVP cried and moaned and begged for mercy, claiming alcoholism and mental illness, but he was fired anyway. The supervisor, who by all accounts participated in the relationship willingly and enthusiastically, suddenly morphed into the victim of sexual harassment. She claimed she was coerced into the many, many physical encounters they had with the AVP's threats of termination if she didn't put out. And their drunken office sex was now a case of rape. She kept her job, but lost the respect of everyone in the company.

I worked for a TV station many years ago, and one of the producers, who was a constant fuck up, threw a video tape across the newsroom at a production assistant. He was angry because it was the wrong tape, which he hadn't noticed before it went on the air because he didn't bother checking it. He blamed the P.A. for it, and threw the tape at her in anger. It was only her job to fetch the tapes, not check them against the editorial side which was obviously his responsibility.

It wasn't a VHS tape either, it was a big heavy Umatic tape that are like 4 times the size of VHS, in a thick plastic case. He could have seriously hurt someone so thank god he missed. Anyway, I walked into the newsroom .5 seconds before this started, and witnessed the whole thing, so I was called into the news director's office to give my account of what happened. He was fired by the end of the day. I was pretty glad with that outcome because he was a major closet case (epitomized "queeny") with a wife and kids at home who made me uncomfortable to be around. He was an ogler. Creepy as fuck.

A socially awkward woman started working as medical typist in the hospital where I worked. She kept to herself and everyone thought she seemed a bit off.

One day after about a year of working there, she randomly stopped turning up and didn't respond to any emails or phone calls. Eventually, after about six months of no contact, he emailed the supervisor saying sorry, but her phone's not working and that's why she hasn't responded. She said in the email she didn't want to come back,

Anyway, somebody in payroll wasn't paying attention, so it turns out they were pay this woman for the entire time she was skipping work, and this this went on for about a year. She wasn't on medical leave or anything like that, it was just a mistake. Nothing even happened to retrieve the money, no court or threats.

A girl I went to school with got a job where I worked. She had a boyfriend who also went to our school. He was a little older and kid of dangerous. He was real quiet and gave off vibes that you just didn't fuck with him, and he was obsessed with her. She started messing around with a guy at work. One night she went to the guy from works apt. Her boyfriend followed them. He kicked in the door and stabbed them both to death. She called 911, and during the court case they played the call, and you could hear her dying on the phone.

Another one: this woman from work was divorcing her husband. Well he set the garage on fire and locked her in there . She died.

When I was in college, I worked in.a cal centre and had this mean bitch boss, we were forced to work all during the holidays. My mean bitch boss called me the day after Christmas, at home to remind me that I MUST show up for my shift and don't dare calling in sick. Later that night, my group chat was blowing up , when i read the messages, apparently her son was discovered dead in a drug den/ house. It was all over the news, he had been dead for days and his body discovered that day. Her message to the chat later that night read: " my son died and I won't be at work tomorrow" no emotion, just as cold as she is.

I find it weird she had only texted me hours earlier. Did she already know and was lashing out at me? She didn't like me. Also , it was most shocking because this woman was known as being strict and disciplined. People were more surprised she had a drug addicted son. She was back at work 1 week later and showed very little emotion...At one point I even overheard her say " my son went and got himself killed"

But I think my favorite is when I worked in HR for a bank. There was a woman who worked there who everybody hated and avoided. She was obnoxious, neurotic, and if she caught you in the hallway, you were stuck listening to her rant about something for at least half an hour. That's why everybody tried to stay out of her way.

One night, everyone was leaving work, and somebody walked by her office and saw her in her chair, with her head on her desk. They went in to see if she was all right, and she was dead. Massive stroke. When the medics got there, they determined that she had been dead for about 7 hours.

First job out of college. The publishing company I went to work for was just acquired by a much larger, international magazine publisher. The owner and one of the management employees were having an affair. I walked into an unused conference room to use it to take photos of some computer equipment for a review article. He was eating her pussy. I turned around and left. They never said anything to me, but made my life hell at work. I was required to do things not in my job description, such as being on site on a Sunday to receive a shipment of magazines or wait to leave each day until one of them said my desk was acceptably clean. If I wasn't at my desk by 8:30 sharp, I was docked half a day's pay. I went into NYC to talk to HR and they just shrugged their shoulders -- "You're salary. They can do that." I quit and went to work for a small startup called Compaq. This was well before things like "constructive dismissal" and the like.

I had a colleague who was a manager that ONLY hired women. He was always on the phone fighting with his wife who was very jealous. Then he and one of his direct reports started getting visibly close and flirty, spending all their time together giggling and what not.

I can't remember if he was already divorcing or if he left his wife at this point, but she sent our boss all of these emails saying what an awful person he was, and how he and his direct report girlfriend were apartment hunting together.

Then she came to campus looking for him, someone recognized her somehow. So they had to call the cops and lock the building down and pass out her picture. It was very embarrassing. Leadership chose not the be involved and the direct report changed jobs soon after, not sure if they stayed together or not. Eventually much later my colleague was laid off.

I was a newbie, working in an upscale hotel bar. My immediate supervisor, "Mary," hated me right off the bat. The holidays were coming up and Mary had us all put in our requests for which holidays we wanted off.

I requested Thanksgiving day off and said I'd work all the other holidays if I could get TG off. Mary put me on the schedule for Thanksgiving plus some of the other holidays.

Mary's boss, "Eduardo," overruled Mary on her system. Instead, we pulled pieces of paper, out of a bowl, to determine who works or doesn't work on each holiday.

I ended up with every single holiday off: Thanksgiving, Christmas eve, Christmas day, NYE, and New Year's Day. I looked at Mary and I couldn't help myself from laughing.

They had a team of agents handling Rogers phone upgrade calls. So a couple of agents decided that it would be a good idea, when inputting the shipping information, that they should put their own addresses instead of the customer addresses in their accounts when ordering all the phones to have them all shipped to them instead of the customers. Then they could sell all of the customer's phones off and make some money. They got caught and were brought into a meeting room with the CEO who lost it on them and then they were all fired. Not sure about criminal charges.

The salespeople at my old office had an expensive perq: downtown in-and-out parking. It was necessary because they always were running out on sales calls.

One incredibly nasty salesqueen was fired for cause (theft). They collected his key and parking pass.

MONTHS later, another salesperson was parking and the attendant said, "Oh, you just missed Hisstopher."

"Hisstopher hasn't worked for the company in months!"

"Well, he parks here almost every day." He was so well-known to the attendants they never checked for a parking pass.

The boss made a call and told off the garage manager, letting him know that Hisstopher never was to park there again for free.

On Monday morning, the first person to arrive at the office found a huge human shit just inside the door, in the vestibule — where the alarm wouldn't go off. No one doubted that Hisstopher had made a spare key and was taking his revenge.

Not long after Hisstopher died under mysterious circumstances — a "fall" at his house. And no one doubted that it was a trick gone wrong or a drug thing.

Assistant and Associate professors taught three days a week, with a fourth day set aside for committee meetings, office hours, attendance at events, etc. We also had one day set aside for work on our own research, when we were not required to be on campus. Full professors (which included ALL department heads) were only required to be in the classroom two days a week. They got a research day off campus as well.

Meanwhile, at another state institution across town, there was an active shooter incident. The news media interviewed faculty and staff about the event, including a Computer Information Science professor who had been barricaded in his classroom. When the footage aired it was discovered that the head of the CIS department where I taught was holding down a second full time position at this other institution. He showed up on our campus his requisite two days and was teaching a full load across town at the other institution on the other three days. Come to find out he had been doing this for about three years.

Needless to say, neither institution was very happy about this and he was fired from both positions. Last I heard he was managing an Apple Genius Bar and making about 20% what he had been pulling down at the two schools.

[quote] The 2 somehow climbed into the ceiling vents to avoid detection- it failed. No one was allowed to leave the building. No one. And this thing lasted until 10pm at night

What? No one was allowed to leave your work place until they smoked out the 2 robbers hiding out? If they knew who the robbers were, seems like they should have allowed the other employees to leave. In fact, it sounds dangerous to trap everyone in the building with 2 robbers.

R78. This was back in the early 1990’s. I think the police did not know how many suspects were involved and were trying to make sure they nabbed all the culprits.

At the office holiday party, someone walked into the women’s room and saw the CEO (male) fucking an IT staffer (female in a stall. The viewer made a quick exit, but shared the Tuz it with me and a few others in Legal. That IT person later in the new year was visibly pregnant, which caused a lot of gossip about the father. Turns out she was already a few months pregnant when she took the dick in a bathroom stall. She ‘departed’ the company before the birth.

I worked for a federal magistrate back in the early 2000s. Magistrates get all the pretrial conferences and sometimes motion hearings depending on what the parties want. One scheduling conference my boss handled was a sexual harassment case between two men. They were birdseed salesmen or something like that and were on the road all the time. The older guy was an old closeted Trump voter type guy and the younger guy was a gorgeous hunk in his mid 30s or so. The young guy filed a sexual harassment case against Trumpy because one night when they were on the road Trumpy got shitfaced in his hotel room, staggered over to the young guy's room and made a hard play for him.

The young guy sued. As bad as all that was for Trumpy, his wife was there in the gallery watching the scheduling conference which meant she knew everything about the suit and what her husband had done. That was really the only good case my boss handled when I worked for him.

Several years ago, one of the Finance interns walked into a conference room and caught the VP of Finance screwing a female manager on the table. The VP was terminated - the manager said she was forced to have sex with the VP to keep her job which may or may not have been true, since he concurred and was terminated.

Circa 2003. The head of HR went all psycho when being let go by our CEO (who himself was fired about a year later), and security had to physically restrain her and escort her out of the building. The executive suites were just a few floors up from mine, so word traveled very quickly as did the rumors. There were whispers that she and the CEO were having an affair, but who knows if that’s true. I’m inclined to think it was just a rumor, but no matter. Anyway, after being let go she failed upward and eventually became HR head at Pfizer. Apparently she was so notorious there, Fortune did this whole feature about their CEO’s ouster and all her shenanigans that contributed to it. For example, her use of the company helicopter to commute from her Maryland home to Pfizer in NYC, so often and at such an eye-popping company expense that Pfizer nearly had to disclose it to SEC as executive comp which would have placed her I think in the top 3 highest paid Pfizer executives at the time. She was at my company on the west coast for only about a year. I remember the company meeting where she was introduced. She said about five words expressing canned admiration for our company and our role in our industry, then spent the next three minutes talking on and on about herself. I was watching the meeting by webcast in my boss’ office with him and a few colleagues. I specifically remember us looking at each other reacting to this first impression and her strange display of unrestrained narcissism and then I said out loud, “This won’t end well.” Indeed! 🤦🏻‍♂️🤷🏻‍♂️

A File Clerk who was disabled but had been there for decades because her dad wouldn't let her quit. Apparently she wore a diaper and one day some turds tumbled down her leg onto the floor as she staggered by.

There was a married couple at a law firm I worked at about 10 years ago, Vicky was a senior paralegal and her husband Carl was the offsite storage file clerk. Vicky was quite elegant and put together and Carl was a schlub who only had the job because she pulled some strings. Vicky was having an affair with one of the married senior partners, and by senior I mean OLD. Vicky and Carl were deacons in their church and the senior partner was some sort of elder in his. Carl and Vicky separated but still worked at the firm and avoided each other as much as possible.

Until they got into a fight at the office late one Friday afternoon. They were slugging each other and she hit him with her phone. There weren't too many people in the office since it was so late and one of the other partners had to break the fight up so it took a while over the next week for us to figure it out. They got an immediate two-week suspension and then were fired. The partner was censured by the State Bar.
