Employees Reveal The Most Memorable Workplace Scandal They've Ever Witnessed.

We all know that things go down in the workplace that really shouldn't. If you're lucky, it's something that a simple warning from a manager can fix. But sometimes, the problem runs a little bit deeper than that...

This article is based on a Quora thread. Link on the last page.

1/8. One day, I walked outside looking for my manager. He was on a smoke break in front of the building with a couple of his buddies, and I overheard him say: I think we need to fire Janet because shes too pretty.


My jaw dropped, but he continued: Between you and me, half the guys here have already hit on her, so they arent getting their work done.

I was too angry to say anything, so I went back inside. But then I found my backbone and I went back outside. IF you do that I will march her to the Department of Labor myself and quote this phrase to them.

Needless to say I did not get along with my manager and quit as soon as possible. That was one of many things that went wrong there.

2/8. This was the eighties. I worked for a squeaky-clean, all American image company that prided itself on the "look" of its people: generally young, healthy, attractive, fit.


Part of the corporate "team building" and "brand recognition" was to enter every 10k race, and every athletic corporate competition of any kind. They were dead serious about looking good and doing well at these events. The most important competition was baseball.

One day, this new guy from accounting joined the team. he was an amazing player, very fit, and extraordinarily attractive. He turned the team around! Suddenly we were the talk of the tournaments. Everybody went to the games and out for drinks after! Management was so proud.

Then one day he didn't come out of his office for lunch. His colleagues knocked on the closed door. Nothing. So they opened the door... (continued)

There he sat, behind his desk, naked, without his crisp, tailored white shirt and silk tie. Bare chested he hummed monotone, "HHHHMMMMMMMMMMM" with his head cocked ever so slightly to the left. Eyes wide open, staring straight ahead.

Our squeaky clean All-American management had and hired a raging cokehead.

3/8. When I worked for a utility company in Las Vegas, one of the employees was fired because he got into a fight with a hooker over how much hed pay her.

The idiot did this during work hoursin a company truck. The hooker called the company and reported him. Of course, he was fired.

-Charlotte Lang

4/8. This is particularly funny because this happened in a government office. The main office, in DC, of the SEC. Yep, while reviewing those big corporate mergers, with literally billions of dollars flowing through that office, this was going on.

I received a number of odd e-mails.

Email 1: "You are so sexy. I cant believe you with that ice cream - I wanted to lick that drip off your chin and down your breast. Your boobs are so f*cking hot. I cant wait until tonight."


Me: WTF???!

I turn to my office mate, who is turning to me simultaneously - did you just- We hear laughing in the hallway. Turn back to the email. I am now laughing hysterically as I realize what had happened. (continued)

Keep reading on the next page.

Some idiot accidentally hit reply all and his naughty note was transmitted to all of us. Yipes.

Emails 250: Increasingly funny and inappropriate responses are mass emailed as we all realize what happened. Personal favorite: "Sorry, my cat got there first. I, um, may be late tonight."

Email 51: original sender apologizes for mass email, and admonishes everyone to stop sending joke responses.

People have now figured out and passed along that sender is (a) married and (b) not to the person described in the first e-mail. Bigger yipes.

Email 522000+: Emails go NUTS. No work is done. At all.

Email 2001: Email from original sender that he is going home and not returning for remainder of week for obvious reasons.

Sender never returns to work. Your tax dollars at work.

5/8. I was managing at a call center. The company, when I was first hired, was very small, only about 100 employees, small enough where everybody knew everybody elses name.

Three years later, Im going to estimate we had about 1,500 employees. When a company grows that fast, there are growing pains. You have to stop worrying about hiring the best, choosing instead to just hireanybody.


There were some minor indiscretions at first, just silly things. But, then things escalated: sex in the VPs office, sexual harassment, people stealing from work, all the usual things that happen in a company.

But, the really scandalous thing that happened included me right in the middle of things, and it started when I received a rather innocuous email: "Hey Garrett, I got the cheese for the V." (continued)

Keep reading on the next page.

I had no idea what that meant, so I asked one of my employees. She looked at me like I was crazy. It means you have the money for either the Valium or Vicodin I gave you.

I looked in our employee directory and found another Garrett in our email systemit was a simple case of somebody being lazy when typing and autocompleting an email address.

This meant we had drug deals being arranged via our corporate email system. This was really bad. As an outsourced call center, if there had been an arrest, we would have to turn over all our email records which would have caused several clients to leave.

So, I went to the VP who oversaw operations and had to break the news to him. An internal investigation began that had many embarrassing consequences. There was a crapload of drug use and sales going on there. Turned out most of the management staff and entire sales teams were on serious drugs.

In the end, though, the company realized they couldnt fire 30% of their staff. Some token firings were made. However, the biggest casualty was me. It was WELL known that I was the guy who started the downfall of the drug trade there, so I no longer felt welcome there.


-Garrett Murphy

6/8. There is something that city workers do here in Chicago that is technically legal, but very, very shady. It's the main reason the city is broke. I know several people who have done it. It goes like this.

A city worker will retire on a Friday, and begin collecting their pension (about 75% of their usual pay check). Then that city worker will form an LLC, or a one-person company, that performs the same task that the city worker did for the city. This is where it gets shady. (continued)

Keep reading on the next page.

The city will privatize that job, and hire the LLC to do the same job the person retired from, but at a higher pay rate.

The former city employee returns to work on Monday as a contractor, but does the same exact job. They are now getting two paychecks: their pension, and the contract pay.

A friend of mine retired at age 55, began collecting a $85,000 annual pension, and went right back to work the next week as a private contractor for the same exact position, making $150 an hour.

The hiring boss usually gets a kickback from this. They will approach a worker who could retire, but might not be ready yet. Then theyll offer them to retire/re-hired as contractor deal, for a price.



7/8. At the factory where I used to work, the night cleaners found a bloody condom floating in one of the mens' toilets. This began a Witch Hunt spearheaded by the virtue of our homophobic general manager.


The discovery of a bloody condom would tend to raise eyebrows. However, it did not end there, as our GM took it upon himself to locate the deviants and take the appropriate corrective actions (whatever thats supposed to mean).

One week later, BR, one of the nicest guys Ive had the pleasure of working with, comes back from his last vacation. He had been with the company some 40 years. His wife had just died, and BR was a month away from his retirement.

Even so, the GM decided to question him about the bloody condom. (continued)

Keep reading on the next page.

As our supervisor described it BR immediately barged into a management meeting with tears in his eyes and rage in his veins after being questioned.

He explained to the group that he has cancer (we assumed prostate) and that he has to place a condom on his wang to keep from leaking blood.

He apologized about the poor flushing job he must have done to have left a soiled condom floating in the bowl, but then unleashed an ego-shattering description of those who jumped to conclusions, singling out the GM and calling him out as a homophobic piece of sh*t.


BR retired a month later to enjoy his last months before succumbing to his condition. The GM never seemed the same after that, kinda toothless and withdrawn.

8/8. The company I worked for went through a swingers phase. And yeah, I mean the whole company! Its a reputation that were still trying to fix even though its been five years since the people mostly responsible have left.

Incident one: Big Boss sleeps with an employees wife. Employee finds out. Big Boss continues sleeping with wife (event though hes married as well) and Employee does nothing. Employees son is later hired at the same company. Weirdness ensues.

Incident two: Employee comes to work in the middle of the night to check on something. Walks in on a threesome involving two other employees. Employee is scarred and tells everyone. Threesome is not punished. Weirdness intensifies.

Incident three: Swingers start coming to Company to connect. Keys left in jars, comments on the perky nipples of Employees (male and female), caressing of cheeks (face and otherwise), multiple people in single bathrooms for extended periods of time. Weirdness at maximum level.

Were much better now though! But its fun to reflect on the lingering weirdness that occasionally happens.



Have you ever found yourself in an argument so stupid and/or pointless that you were sure you were being punked? Like you keep looking away from the other person to check your surroundings for places Ashton Kutcher and a camera crew could come popping out of?

You're not the only one.

u/Anti-hollowkid asked: What is the dumbest argument you've ever been in?

Brace yourselves, folks. Some of these arguments are breathtakingly bonkers. The sheer number of people who are willing to argue with someone over provable facts and what that other person likes or doesn't like is just ... stunning. It's stunning, you guys. Just not in a good way.

I Know What I Like


My wife and I once argued over whether or not I liked mustard on my hot dog. I was for me liking mustard, she was against me liking mustard.

The argument lasted way longer that you could ever imagine it would.

A Stair Step

My brother and I argued if our staircase had 13 or 14 steps, based on an argument about if the floor of the second floor counts as a stair-step or not. We still have no solution.

- RazerWolf04

My dad is a stairbuilder and I spent many summers working at his warehouse, so I can clear this up. 14.

My husband and I have this thing where we only say "I love you" on Saturdays. Every other day it's "I love you, but only on Saturdays." I don't know how it started, but it's been going for 11 years now.

We're both shiftworkers, so sometimes we have to stop and think what day it actually is. We had an argument recently over whether it was Saturday or not. I said it was Saturday, he said it was Friday. It was Monday.

I remember when I was about 13 my parents had an hour-long shouting match that ended with them almost getting divorced. The issue? Whether or not the nation of Iraq has a coastline.

My mother arguing that Iraq had a coastline, while my stepdad argued that it did not. This was back in 2004, and they are still quite happily married to this day. That incident is something they look back on and laugh about, and both of them admit it was really a pretty stupid thing to argue over.

With an ex:

"I owe you $80 for the bills of ours that you pay, and you owe me $40 for the bills of ours that I paid. Here's $40 in cash; we're even."

She did not understand this.

I literally had to go get another $40 out of the ATM, and hand the $80 to her. Then I had her hand me the $40 she owed me.

"Now how much do you have in your hand?"

She still didn't understand.

She somehow has a college degree.

Mini Wheats

When we were kids my brother and I got in a physical fight because he said I like mini wheats and I insisted I didn't. His argument was that I always sang the mini wheats song and I was deeply offended that he wasn't aware that it was just stuck in my head but I hated the cereal. I actually did like the cereal I'm not sure why I was arguing with him about it but I remember how genuinely angry I was.

I'll tell you about the only legal trouble I've ever been in, the fight that got me arrested. It started over whether we should return a box of crayons or not, and to this day I don't have any idea how it escalated to the point of the cops being called, but they were and I was the one taken in.

- CorrectionalChard

That's Unfair

My boyfriend insisted that when two people are in an argument and one makes a point so reasonable and logical the other one can't disagree with it - it's unfair. I tried, logically and reasonably, to explain several times why that is just winning the argument, proving your point thoroughly and is completely fair.

His answer was that I was being unfair.

- ShyAcorn

Pure Masochism

How the ch in masochism is pronounced. My friend caught me saying "masoKism" while he would say "masoSYism."

To be fair, he grew up speaking French, in which the ch in masochism is pronounced in "his" way. But he insisted that I was the wrong one here and that was just infuriating.

Emailing NASA

A woman was adamant that looking at the big solar eclipse on the television was unsafe unless you were wearing glasses. She wouldn't believe us and insisted on emailing NASA to check.

A Non-Standard Ruler? 

I worked for a company that made signs. We had a customer ask for signs that were 7mm wide that were to go on a door. Our sign makers figured the order meant inches because 7mm is pretty small, so made them 7 inches. I got a phone call from the customer who went mad at me for making them the wrong size. So I put a reorder through for 7 mm.

Argued with the sign makers over it but they eventually agreed to do it after I shown them the order in writing. I even had the customer put her complaint in writing, reiterating the size they wanted.

7mm signs went out and a day later I get the customer on the phone literally screaming at me.

Cue the dumb argument - we ended up having an argument over how big a millimetre is, and obviously everyone in the office were laughing, but this customer just wouldn't accept it and said we must be using a non-standard ruler to measure.

Ended up being escalating to the sales department manager who refused to issue a refund. We still don't know what they actually meant.

This Unusual Vegan Argument

Was in a pub with a few friends, and some random Dude dropped an ear, and somehow figured I'm vegan. Well, people like him are the reason I usually avoid mentioning it. He came up to me and insisted on starting a discussion about veganism. He claimed that by the end of it, I would be eating meat again.

He listed some stupid arguments, I told him I was not convinced and then tried to keep on drinking beer with my friends. He followed me, and wanted me to "try to convert him to a vegan." I stupidly listed some of my reasons thinking it would make him go away. He told me he still was not convinced, so I was like whatever. Again, I really just wanted to drink beer with my friends.

That dude followed me all night and expected me to try make him vegan. Doesn't matter what I said, and all the reasons that for me are obviously good enough to be vegan. He'd be just like "No, that doesn't convince me, therefore your argument and how you life is stupid."

Didn't matter how often I told him that I honestly don't care; 5 minutes later he would come up to me again "I'm still not vegan, so veganism is stupid, all your arguments were stupid, now give me a good reason to become vegan!" At one point, I was literally yelling at him that I don't give a single flying f about what he eats and why, that it's in no way my responsibility to "turn somebody vegan" and in no way his business what I eat.

Honestly, for that dude, I would have bought a whole ham, just to shove it up his stupid annoying face.

Monty Python

In college my roommate and I argued about a line in Monty Python & the Holy Grail. The scene with the Black Knight where the line "Alright, we'll call it a draw" is uttered. We argued about who said that line, whether it was King Arthur or the Black Knight.

It went on for hours longer than it should have because I was stubborn and refused to admit I was wrong.

Below Sea Level

I live on an island and when you go upland and you look out the sea looks like it's higher than or on the same level as the land. It's just a weird perspective thing because of the horizon. One day some kid says that it's because the island is under sea level.

I'm like wtf bro all of us would be with the fishes. He argues that no that's not true and if I just go upland I'll see. We then spend a good 5 minutes of my time arguing about it until I decided to leave this kid in his stupidity. He even said we shouldn't believe everything adults tell us and sometimes we need to think for ourselves.

This kid was older than me and was going to a good school. Lost my respect for him ever since then.

Someone tried to fight with me over how to spell my name.

Now, my name is in a lot of languages with slightly different spellings. I would have accepted any of those spellings, but this one was just... Not even close. It didn't make any logical sense.

An analogous example is if my name was Thomas and someone was insisting it was spelled Tomash. And not just the name Thomas in general, but that me specifically, on my birth certificate, was named Tomash. I know how to spell my own name.

I swear to god, it went on for like an hour.

Whales Are Mammals

I was in an online chat room one day, and we were talking about whales. I commented on how whales are mammals and the next thing you know, someone was arguing with me and trying to convince me that a whale was a fish.

No Balloons For Grandma

My cousin and I argued over a balloon going to Heaven. We were at his big sisters prom send off and he let a balloon go and it went high into the sky.

He then said this balloon will go up past space and go to Heaven and reach grandma (God rest her soul). And I was like no it's not and it's probably not even gonna reach space. Releasing balloons is terrible for the environment and kills/harms so much wildlife.

He got really mad and defensive and started telling me to google it and do my research and I'm like I don't have to google it you idiot. He was mad at me for a good week.

Spontaneous Dolphin Existence


How dolphins reproduced. It took me a few solid minutes of explaining to her that dolphins have reproductive organs and that they did not just pop into existence. The argument began with her saying she wanted to work with sea creatures.

Personally, I hope she was messing with me cause I lost a little faith in humanity that day.

I repeatedly had the argument with a friend over whether roosters were chickens. She was convinced that only the females were chickens (hens). We were 18 at the time.

My brother is colorblind. And he CONSTANTLY tries to correct me on what color things are.

"Hey could you hand me that red _____?"

Andre 2000?


I'm late, but I saw this question and instantly remembered that I was booted from a Facebook group because I called someone out on a lie that was not only bull, but extremely pointless. She was friends with the moderator and they made the case that my argument over such a little lie was more of a problem than the lie itself (though they didn't refer to it as a lie.)

The woman said that she used to babysit for Andre 3000 and that his name was Andre 2000 - but he changed it after the year 2000 had passed. This was so easily disproven it was ridiculous. Their debut album came out in 1994 and he was already going by Andre 3000 at that time.

The argument wasn't a huge long drawn out thing, but the fact that either of us were on Facebook at separate times meant that the responses were over a long period of time so this argument lasted a few days.

It was stupid.

Stars Like Our Sun

I was arguing with my grandpa about stars he didn't believe that there are other stars like our sun. Basically he thought there is only the sun, the moon and the earth.


Richard Nixon

I have a degree in history. I mostly focused on nationalism. Wrote a 50 page paper on it and Richard Nixon with around 50 100 sources. Looked at micro film for hours on end. Part of the paper focused on how Nixon being chair of the house committee of Unamerican Activities was used as a powerful weapon to use against political enemies. It also inspired Joe McCarthy. Have had people tell me I was wrong and Nixon was never elected to a position besides the president and Joe McCarthy came before Nixon. I stopped trying to talk history to people.

I also know quite a bit about the history of the Balkans its amazing how many Serbs refuse to believe Tito did anything wrong.

Wrote 100 page paper on nationalism in Israel. Its frustrating to talk about because for some reason a lot of people think Palestinian firing rockets randomly into Israel is ok but if Israel retaliates the people get up in arms over a targeted air strike that kills 3 people.


Balloon to Heaven

My cousin and I argued over a balloon going to Heaven. We were at his big sisters prom send off and he let a balloon go and it went high into the sky. He then said this balloon will go up past space and go to Heaven and reach grandma (God rest her soul). And I was like no it's not and it's probably not even gonna reach space.

And he got really mad and defensive and started telling me to google it and do my research and I'm like I don't have to google it you idiot. He was mad at me for a good week.


Binder Clips

I got into an argument with a co-worker over how we were attaching two pages of a letter together: small binder clips or paper clips.

He felt that paper clips would leave a "dent" in the paper when removed, but binder clips won't. He refused to staple them together. I felt that binder clips would also leave a "dent", so we might as well just use the paper clips.

It ended with him saying: "Do what you want [me], I don't care!" and storming off.



Once got accused of faking being Jewish. Why? I have no clue. We argued over the course of a month, any time I'd bring it up and she heard about it, she'd begin going after me for "faking it".

My mother's side is ethnically Jewish. Grandparents were practicing.




3 friends and I once got into an argument about how to pronounce Nutella. It lasted for about 3-4 months. It was hilarious how serious we took it, it'd get heated but never for real serious.

I think someone even called the company that made it to check, or that may have been for the Cheetos company. We were really bored in high school.


Lingerie Boxes

Late to the party, but there it is.

I'm a manager at a small store. We're only 4 working there, so my team and I grew very close and we joke around a lot. Once during a slow shift, my employee and I had an argument because we were looking at the lingerie boxes, and I thought that two specific boxes had the same woman on it, but she was 100% positive they weren't the same person.

Looking back, I don't know why it was such a big deal to us at the time, but we even called another employee who lives across the street to come and tell us what the heck was up with that. Turns out I was right, and she was pretty salty about it. It was a great night.


Wicked Witch of the West

I almost got into an argument with an old girlfriend over Glinda the good witch from Oz. She insisted that Glinda was manipulating Dorothy to assassinate the Wicked Witch of the West and convince the Wizard to leave to create a political void she could fill.

I conceded the issue when I heard the whole premise because I thought it was too damn stupid to get worked up over.


Keep Your Hands to Yourself

Just the other day I legit got in an argument with my co-workers on why I don't like my butt being grabbed by anyone (I'm a guy). Seriously.

They went on about "I don't mind it. Mike and I do it all the time and we don't care." Yeah, that's nice dude, but I'm not you, and there's something called "Keep your hands to yourself" (which was taught to a good portion of us growing up). Just like how Karen wouldn't like it if I touched her boobs or her grabbing your crotch or frankly ANY area you wouldn't like being grabbed, keep away. In general, you should not be touching me in any areas after I've told you not to several times before.

So unless you're sleeping me or dating me, keep your damn hands off my toosh.



My best friend and I argued over whether or not telekinesis was possible. Her argument was that humans don't yet know what the human brain at 100% usage was capable of, and that telekinesis was inside the possibilities.

I said the brain does use 100%, just at different times.

We didn't speak to each other for four days.



How dolphins reproduced and whether or not ghost existed (back to back with the same person). It took me a few solid minutes of explaining to her that dolphins have reproductive organs and that they did not just pop into existence (the argument began with her saying she wanted to work with sea creatures).

How it shifted to the existence of ghosts is a solid and reasonable question to ask (I don't remember why). I had to then proceed to tell her that ghost hunting TV shows do not constitute as undeniable evidence.

Personally, I hope she was messing with me cause I lost a little faith in humanity that day. This was in high school SO... hopefully she was kidding.


Dogs and Chocolate


I told this stupid woman that chocolate is toxic to dogs. She went on to tell me how a little bit will just make them hyper and then they will calm down. I told her to google it. Her and her bf shut right up. Now they have a kid. Good luck, Jeremy and Andrea. morons.

I should also add that this argument started because Jeremy was giving his tiny dog chocolate and I told him it was toxic.


Is water wet?

My roommate and I have a recurring argument over whether or not water is wet l, and whether or not a person is considered wet underwater.

For the record, it is no to both questions.


Mission Trip

A kid a church telling me about the mission trip I went on. Not only was I not on that trip, but I had never been on any mission trip. We were good friends, so it's not like he would've mistaken someone else for me.

He insisted I was there as if an entire week long trip would just fall out of my memory. He even had stories of things we'd done together. I'm not sure if he thought I was lying, joking, stupid, or crazy, but I was pretty sure he was some combination thereof.


Dragon Tales

One time I got into a shouting match with my mom and little brother in the car. The issue? The names of the two-headed dragon from the PBS kids afternoon show Dragon Tales. I swore it was Zack and Macie.

It was actually Zak and Wheezie. I don't even remember why we were yelling about it.


Green Or Yellow?

When I was about 15 or so my mother and I spent about 20-30 minutes arguing about the color of a shirt. We agreed it was blue/green, but to me it was just a shade more blue, while to her it was just a bit more green.

Turns out, your eyeballs yellow as you age and hers were 24 years yellower than mine, so I think that skewed her color vision.


Stars In Their Multitude


I once got in an argument over whether or not a line from the song "Stars" in Les Mis says "...but mine is the way of the lord" or "mine is the way of the law".

I didn't even really care what he thought but he was so adamant and cocky that it got me heated. By the end of it we were shouting at each other and I had to apologize, which I think is what he wanted the whole time.



My brother is colorblind. And he CONSTANTLY tries to correct me on what color things are.

"Hey could you hand me that red _____?" "that's orange" "no, it's red" "orange" "YOU CANT EVEN KNOW".

It is the base of our most common and heated arguments.


Hot Water

About five years ago, my girlfriend (now wife) once had a very intense argument about whether or not hot water cleaned things better than cold water.

She genuinely believed that water temperature didn't matter. This is someone who has not one, but two masters degrees.

We argued for something like 2 hours, and we seriously almost broke up over the whole thing.


Biology Class

I had an argument with a girl IN THE MIDDLE OF A BIOLOGY CLASS in high school about how humans are not mammals. She thought a human was a human and we are not mammals because "mammals are animals and humans are not animals"

I tried explaining to her the difference between reptiles and mammals and how humans fall under the mammal category to try and educate her... but she just wouldn't listen.

I still have no idea why the BIOLOGY teacher did not get involved...


Solid Or Liquid?

Some classmates and I got into a heated debate as to whether or not the human body could count as a soup, salad, or sandwich. The teacher got mad at us, but hey! All we were doing was watching a movie.

For the record, my logic lays with soup- Liquid contained within a solid, at a hot temperature.
