Weirdest thing a colleague has done

I'm sure we've all worked with a few oddballs - what's the weirdest thing you've ever seen a colleague do?

  • Not colleagues as such but I once had to break up a fist fight between two directors who were father and son at a client.
  • Have her waters break in the seat next to me
  • Shit in a bin

    Any reason why?!
  • Giving me a bj
  • This thread will be a welcome distraction to the takeover wait.
  • Former colleague lied about his dad dying so he could get a day off....that was actually my boss. Produced fake tears. On reflection he was completely insane to be honest. Someone to stay very clear of.

    Another colleague got arrested in the office. I was on the phone looking on like what the f*ck? We were playing football with him at lunch earlier. He seemed normal then all of a sudden the police raid the office and pinn him against the wall. My hunch told me drug trafficking.

    Oh yeh (all the same place btw)

    A bloke that was an alcoholic maybe about 50-60 odd and a woman between 25-35 were caught on CCTV outside the office but still in the building on a sofa after work hours at around Christmas time, pissed off their faces and foundling each other.

    She was a 7.5/10 and rather nice ... he made the other women in the office feel sick. He was not considered attractive in any way shape or form and I could see why. He was just a knob.

    It became apparent that he told her he had a successful wine business soon to make him millions as a side project. He was on £6.50 and hour at this place and she fell for his lies.

    They both didn't come in to work the next day. I was concerned for her but the whole thing was a bit off and strange.

    The CCTV was a slight blur and was not a pretty sight! The boss that lied about his dad dying was the idiot that showed me the footage when it was clear we was not supposed to know about it.

    I worked with an engineer who built his own electrolysis machine and removed his beard with it, and then went through full sex change. Martin became Sandra.

    Not Martina?

    He made an electrolysis machine...to remove his beard?

    Thought electrolysis machines just seperated ions?
  • Oh.

    Where to start.

    I employed someone for 2 months who seemed slightly unhinged, kept a diary of how everyone was it to get them.

    Then HR got there checks together and found out every single item of previous work on their CV was a lie, not worked there, no record, got escorted out the building.

    Hired a guy with a good track record on mergers and acquisitions, available todaybwcause his mum had died and gone to India for the family, came in lasted 3 weeks and left refusing to speak to us saying he was just not up to the job.

    Now have a stable team of people only some of whom have serious personality issues so I Trump them.
  • I used to have the untidiest desk in the world, (some health and safety bloke once took a photo of it to use in a presentation). I came in one morning and my colleague had put it all in perfect order, to the point that he had perfectly arranged all my pencils in military order and had sharpened them to the degree that they could be used as offensive weapons.

    Hmm, yes, er, this was about 1980 and he designed this circuit, then built it, and I think it fired zappy electrical charges at the hair follicle. I just remember it left red dots on his face. But it did kill the follicles.
  • Love these types of threads.

    Agree, although this thread wont properly kick off until @Carter posts
  • Marrying me.
