    Maybe not weird but dumb.
    One of my first jobs was as a service station attendant. I lied and said I was 18 so was made an assistant manager which paid a little more.
    One of the many jobs I had to do was take the money each week to the bank up the street and deposit it.
    One day the manager told me to leave the money in the safe and he would take care of it. About a month later I was on night shift and the manager came in and told me to take the night off and have some fun he would work my shift.
    I lite out like a shuck and come dragging home about sunrise, the cops were there waiting for me, loaded me up and took me to the station. There was another guy that worked night shift with me and they had him in there also.
    This is when I learned 2 men had come into the gas station, beat the lights out of the manager, tie him up and take all the money.
    They asked us a bunch of questions and they decided to look a little closer at the manager and his story.
    They somehow caught the 2 men involved and implicated the manager. The manager got a few years for the hist.

    So they intended to use illegal drugs to kill a employee? (After breaking into his apt?) I think I would have quit really quick.

    They were asking her to do something wrong. Have you no morals? Just because someone pays you doesn't mean you should do immoral acts that you believe are wrong.
    And what does slapping the hand that feeds you on a gun forum mean? That she shouldn't have called them out?
    Are your morals really this substandard? I've known criminals with more morals than you speak of.

    I was once tasked to go into a prison and execute a search warrant to seize a prisoner's underpants. Whatever pair he was wearing at the time.

    We needed 'personal items' to get a DNA sample to match against blood found at 12 different crime scenes. A technicallity in the law at the time meant we couldn't take a blood sample or mouth swab, but a judge issued a warrant for his skivvies.

    Your comment "slapping the hand that feeds you on a gun forum" appears curiously incoherent. Care to clarify?

    Yes, I should have lied, gotten the blameless valet parker fired, and vindicated the boss' notion that (a) driving drunk was totally OK, and (b) letting your drunk friend, who's not on the rental agreement, also drive drunk was totally OK.

    That wasn't the only garbage thing he wanted me to do during the few weeks I was there, but that one was the most egregious.

    :rofl:

    True. The worst thing I do these days is listen to someone who's clearly lying and refrain from putting a notation in the comments box - THIS DUDE LYIN THRU TEEF. (Which wouldn't be appreciated by his insurance adjuster anyway. But still.)

    My last stupidvisor ask me to buy 2 guns from him.
    His wife told him if he wanted a new bowling ball he had 2 sell things.
    After work had to go across the street to a gas station to get my new guns . deal had to go down off of company land.
    Gun#1 a 870 wingmaster 12 gage made in 1970
    Gun#2 a savage.22
    Both cost me $100 !!!!!!

    I was the go to man about firearms at the plant. Sold the.22 got $50 out of it. Gave the shotgun to a bud for Christmas , after his house was burglarized.
    His 870 had been in the family , insurance said he had no proof of gun.

    So, did you blow him? Not that there is anything wrong with that. I see no denial of gayity in your post and obviously gaydar went off with your boss.

    The first day of work at a new company the boss calls me into his office, closes the door, and asks me to tail his wife (who also worked there) because she didn't know me or my car, when we got off work.

    I did, and followed her to a motel, where she then went directly into a room without checking in. I stayed for about an hour, when she didn't come out I then drove back to the office and reported it to him.

    He swore me to silence, said never mention this to anyone. I agreed, and never did, until after I had left the company. The guy I was talking to, also another former employee, said he did exactly the same thing to him his first day, and she went to the same motel.

    They stayed together the entire time I worked there, and have never been able to figure out if he just liked to know when she was messing around, or if it was some type of test, to see if we could keep a confidence.

    It's supposed to be "biting the hand that feeds you" and it's clear he means she earns her living from them so she shouldn't be trash talking them on the internet. Apparently he didn't get that 1. She had that job in the 90s and 2. She quit after a few weeks.

    It was the strangest place to work, paid well, and the jobs were primarily in upscale neighborhoods for the same 3 or 4 real estate companies.

    However, they wanted every empty paint can returned and signed in. Every so often, the boss would stay late and take a screwdriver, and punch a hole in the cans to dig out the little agitator, then throw everything away. I don't know if it was stress relief or what, at first thought it was for recycling or something, but no, they all went in the dumpster once he was done.

    It was while working for that company I was climbing a stucco fence to find a boundary corner and discovered the neighbors were filming a porno. Probably 5 or so people, three of them naked.

    If you are getting paid it isn't gay.

    People poo or animal poo?

    Nope. Most animal poo does not bother me. Even if it smells. The worst pig barn was not as bad as some houses. (Growing up we raised two pigs once. 8'x8' pen. Very little smell ever, best sausage ever)
    Picking up dog crap with plastic bag? No big deal. Human poop with exam gloves, cleaning pt... Bad.
