This incident is a variation on the theme that dominated our fourth pick, above. But then it goes off into an inspired improvisation.

Joseph Kern worked for CP Burger in Aspen -- but this last October, he was caught on camera stealing around $2,000 from the company safe. He was subsequently charged with assorted crimes, but he denied wrongdoing, insisting that he didn't realize he'd been sacked at the time he let his fingers do the walking, and as an employee, he had access to the safe.

As for why he took the money, he insisted that CP's owners owed even more than what he took but hadn't ponied up. To that end, he later filed a lawsuit against them in small-claims court for just over $5,200.

Balls? Big ones....

I work retail and a former coworker hated her job so much she would routinely defecate into Ralph Lauren polo shirts and fold them neatly and put them back on the table


The only "weird" story was the self-stabbing incident.  All the other ones are just stealing and being intoxicated and driving your car into the building.  Oh and the dumb bomb threat.  Not all that "weird".

My buddy taped a stink bomb under the leg of a chair and then left for the day. Then someone else sat down on the chair breaking the bomb. It was April fools day but then the stink got into the Hvac system and cleared the entire building. Pretty funny, and he hated working there!

Back in NY, someone on their last day, placed several eggs with pin holes in the suspended ceiling in the executive offices. Weeks later they had this horrific smell, which they couldn't find the source of. LOL
