Dumb coworkers

What is the most stupid thing a co-worker or employee of yours has done?

This happened recently a truck driver for the cattle company turned in a gas receipt with a 40 oz beer on it. Was told to produce the 40 without a sip taken out. Of course it was gone

...I didn't witness the event but was told about (2) former employees who were shown the door after they taped another co-worker to their chair.....and then forgot to come back and un-wrap that person. Apparently the night shift person sat in the chair unable to get free for about 4 hours until the day shift supervisor came into work in he morning.

Recent hire called in sick saying she spent the evening in emergency. We were suspect as we knew she was headed to a big party the day before so we asked for her to provide paper work documenting the fact she was at an emergency center of some sort, she produced a hand written note signed by Dr. Howard. Of course HR called to verify and there is no Dr. Howard on staff at this particular center. When the boss let her go for lying he asked if Dr. Fine was there too.

I don't understand that. Why risk your job when you can just use a Vacation Day?

...Maybe being a recent hire like Auggie said, she may not have had any vacation or personal days to use.

New hire, vacation and sick days don't kick in until you have been with the company for 6 months.

I had a guy who called in and said he'd be late because he was in a wreck and totaled his car, a white Ford Fiesta. Later that night he came in to my office and asked to go home because his back was hurt from the wreck, so I said yeah man just go home.

Later on his girlfriend shows up to pick him up, in the same white Ford Fiesta. The car had no damage whatsoever. I walked over to him in the parking lot and fired him, to which he just shrugged his shoulders and they drove away.

Taco MacArthur has a little shameless behaviour in the past

There's supposed to be a wave of layoffs at work tomorrow. We'll see how that goes.

I remember one guy who was running late one night - to save time, instead of parking his car in the general lot and walking the length to get in, he parked his car at the loading dock with the engine running and ran inside to clock in, hoping he could slip out and then park his car without his supervisor knowing.

Unfortunately, the car slipped into reverse, went across the dock entrance, and crashed into the fence across the way. He was fired on the spot.

He did get his job back, but it took a few weeks. The only reason he got it back is because luckily he didn't hit another car or person.

"Calling Dr. Howard, Dr. Fine, Dr. Howard!"

Classic.

When I was a high school kid, I worked at a full serve gas station. We did tire work, oil changes, and minor mechanical work at night, so there were 3 of us at all times. Also a cast of regular customers and former employees hanging out and drinking coffee, using a spare lift, whatever.

We did tons of marginally stupid and crazy things just being young jackazzes, but one guy had two unintentional beauties.

One day he goes to the appointment book, and is heard mumbling, " '76 Dart....brakes.." as he grabs the keys. The bay doors are all wide open, and he comes zipping into the shop, right over the lift and into a work bench and practically exploding a rather large rolling tool box, sending hand tools flying everywhere.

Another time, he was working on a large Toledo Scale truck out in the parking lot, because it was too big to fit inside. It was loaded with literally tons of calibration weights. He forgot to chock the wheels, and it got away, rolling downhill on a grade of about 5 feet in 80 feet of travel. It went right through the side of the Moleman's brick house, almost to the door handles.

No one was injured either time
