    What is the most embarrassing thing you have seen at work. Keep it as clean as possible and don't get the thread locked. Another thread gave me this idea, should be interesting reading.
    For me it was the company picnic, a van and two co-workers.
    The van was rocking, by the way.

    Lessee. How about a secy choking down on a gallon sized bowl of beef chow mein at her desk. Or her stretch pants and Robin Hood boots. Or the potato chip crumbs that fell out of a client file after we let her go.

    I was "with" a female coworker in the office after hours when the owner of the company showed up to grab something he forgot.

    Guy puked all over his cube wall. He tried to say he was sick, but the puke stained the wall red since all he had the night before were strawberry daiquiris.

    I was training possible new hires and this one girl was a complete idiot. My fellow trainer asked her about what number 02 meant in regards to the month on a hydro stamp on a compressed air tank.

    She did not know.

    He asks "What is the second month of the year?"

    She did not know.

    He asked "Okay, I'll give it to you, it's february. So if February is the 2nd month, what is the 3rd month of the year?"

    Her "April?"

    A few moments later he asked her what 5+7 was. She responded "I don't know"

    To which he responded "Are you high or drunk? Please tell me for the sake of my faith in humanity that you are on some kind of drugs right now"

    In front of about 30 "trainees". She did not show up for day 2 of training, which was good because at that point I had dubbed her our "Calender Girl".

    Had another one where the guy legitimately had a bad stomach bug. He was at the urinal, dropped a big mushy pile out his pants leg onto the floor. All of the stalls were full so he ran out the bathroom door to the elevator in embarrassment. He proceeded to drop a line of about 15 more piles on the way from the bathroom to the elevator.

    Since we are all goofballs, most of my division went to the bathroom to check out the line from the urinal to the elevator, because they didn't believe it.

    Not my work, but my G/F has told me that she works with a girl that is mind you... IN COLLEGE... that doesn't know what or where "New England" is... and did not know "What country Africa is in"

    Oh, and her excuse was "We didn't learn that in school."

    I have lost all faith

    Guy that couldn't pass a piss test got someone to go for him in a bag. At the place he ripped the bag and spilt it all over him. He came back to work covered in someone elses piss , loaded up his crap and didn't say a word to anyone.
    We got a new guy, he can't read or spell. 40 years old and has asked me how to spell 3 letter words several times.

    This level of "knowledge" is more common than you might suspect.

    i was framing a house with a fly by night crew once when i was complaining about a splinter in my hand i couldn't get out. the thing was the size of a california redwood i swear!!

    boss man is standing there calm and cool as an ice cube listening to me for like a straight minute when he utters the words "my wife just filed for divorce so she can leave me for my sister.", gives me this weird look and then walks off like nothing happened.

    that was the weirdest, longest, and most awkward day i've ever had on a job.

    At my previous workplace, a dude crushed his wiener. He was moving a stack of heavy parts while holding them against his lower abdomen. The shop cart he set them on was about waist high.

    He set them down and ...Squish...Splat....

    Rumor had it that one of the gay guys just had to take a look-see. He said it looked like a exploded overcooked microwave hotdog.

    A community college student who worked for me was under the impression that Washington DC was in the desert - his reason being that in the game Fallout 3 the capitol was surrounded by desert like wastelands.

    Every year our company caters a Christmas dinner. 5 years ago, after the meal, the president of the company is up front discussing the financals for the previous year, when a sherrif walks in and serves him with divorce papers. Apparently he had no clue until then. :faint:
