    I work in I.T. my collegue was dumping every single HDD he had to work with to see if it had nude on it... You'd be surprise on how much he actually found. He said 1 in every 10 PC got some. And let's be clear, we're not talking about porn. We're talking about nude from the owner or gf. Even my boss had some. I never reported him, and we're still friend.

    Oh, and he still have the job.

    Moral of the story: Do not put your nude on your PC when you're sending it to I.T.

    My former Head of Service promoted his partner, this relationship had not been officially declared, to a senior job. He also proceeded to hire his brother in law and generally not follow standard HR protocol. There's a reason why former had to be used.

    Yep, same here. My boss was once red by anger because of that one guy who needed 10 minutes for a praying during a big rush on his first week. And he couldn't fire him... I mean, I don't mind them at all, but during a big rush when we actually need them...

    Whilst in Burger King (other fast-food chains are pretty much the same too) I noticed they don't use gloves so I just left the "restaurant". God knows where their hands have been and if their nails were even clean (probably not). Still, the rest who visit them daily really don't care about that whatsoever - they'd rather just get something ready to eat than bringing from home or do at home.

    In my previous job I encountered a guy jacking off in a room with products for sale. That's as far as I'll go as talking about it. It was disgusting. I just wish this dreadful memory could be erased.
    Nepotism is wrong but (there's always a but) if he's able to help out a fellow family member that's his own prerogative. However, if one is to commit nepotism then at least he/she needs to make sure he/she will do the job properly.

    The Canadian show Schitt's Creek (Canadian Arrested Development) suffers from nepotism but is it a bad thing? No. They're all brilliant in their own roles and really make the series shine.

    working with computer repair and stuff some years ago, one of the co workers made a lot of things I don't aprove ...
    One of these was a time when a guy come with problem on the video card, that video card was of interest of this friend here...
    He told that the problem was it and needed to be replaced, but he knew thatcold just fix it, but instead told the customer to get a new one, seeing how he was in need to back to his game.
    ok, customer get a new, got it replaced, and then he asked if he would like to get the "broken" card back or if he would discart it... not knowing the card could be fixed he told to just discart it ... so he fixed it and sold for own profit ....

    Around that time,other guy even looked into customer photos...

    then I worked at a japanes erestaurant (With not japanese at all, just these "food based in japan" hahah and how the "sushiman" have an stupid chef autority like they where king of the word... they just don't wnat to work :v if there was 5 temaki to be made and nothing else, instead of helping he wanted me to do it e3e
    some time I changed my turn and strate dgoing in the morning , te other guy was nicer in some aspects but still xD"you do it, I have to scratch my butt"
    at leats he don't wanted me to scratch for him ... lol
    One day we got there in the morning and I was arranging the wood plates, the night turn guys forgot an used weed cigarrete there :v
    The worse was one day on the night turn, someone forgot to put the trash out and it was full of fly larvae (you know, salmon remais ...) I don't have smell sense but the vision was what killed me...lot of larvae clinbing the wall, argh... and who had to clean the place? me and another newcomer :B

    oh yes XD yeah , bad memories :v but there was more like a dude that also helped with the brilliant idea of trowing the "juice" one the garden of the avenue (like two ways street but with an thin garden between them) , and put the trash bags with the salmon+ trash +larvae there too ....
    As I remeber there don't grew grass for a long time :v lol some larvs tried to road back lol

    the worse part was that after cleaning , I haven't got free and had to back and work with food latter e3e
