Funny thing happened at work thread
 
So I was reading through another thread by TWMIM *tips hat* and it got me thinking about some funny and entertaining things that have happened over the years while working.

I was wondering if some other folks had some.

Back in about 2000 I was working in a pretty big office for the cable company at the time and EVERYONE was using these battleship looking things at their desks called laptops. I, being the field person that I was and actually having to work in the rain and snow, had no use for such a monstrousity, so I shunned their very existence.

Which is why when a particularly nasty e-mail virus invaded I could not stop laughing at all the tech types being humiliated on a moment by moment basis.

This virus was pretty cool, I have to say even though part of my life now is spent guarding against them.

First it hid in your system, attached itself to your entire e-mail list and sent itself out. *yawn* Hardly new there.

But the first time you opened a window, any window, it would change your speaker settings to wide open, full bore on.

The very next window you opened, or closed, announced the following to everyone who could hear your computer:

"HEY, I'M LOOKING AT PORN OVER HERE!"

And continued to do so everytime you opened or closed a window. It was EPIC. An entire office full of people trying to mute their computers and being redfaced on day one was enough of a prize for me to cherish for a long time. :D

At the hospital we had a phlebotomist that was 'not so bright'. She could draw blood pretty well but she was hard to train. One day she turned on a computer and the monitor appeared to be dying as it was very faint. She actually turned to the phlebotomist next to her and said, "I think this is running out of ink."

Why is she working in a hospital???
She shouldn't be allowed outside of a preschool class room, that she is attending.

She can draw blood pretty well and she doesn't do anything without making sure she fully understands what she is to do. She's dependable and reliable. Even 'people like her' need to have a job.

Let me think a while. I'm sure I have more stories about her.

My new job. I work with one guy who is a bit OCD. The first day I rode with him, as soon as we get ready to head out on our rounds, I noticed him adjusting the lighter in the truck. It has a picture of a cigarette with a smoke plume. He turns the cigarette horizontal, examines it, makes a minute adjustment, examines again, adjusts again...

He is not capable of putting the truck in gear and going anywhere until he's satisfied.

He gets it straight, and we go on about our business for the day. Except for one small problem...
Everytime we got out of the truck, as soon as he turns his head, I reach over and twist the cigarette lighter so he has to start all over. :D trolled.

At the place I used to work we would prank each other everytime someone went to the bathroom in the warehouse. Sometimes it would be firecrackers under the door or a blast of CO2! Even crates to block you in were used, this was done to all us average Joe's in the warehouse. I was promoted to supervisor and our manager went to the bathroom for a long visit. I bribed one of the guys to blast a small fire extinguisher under the stall! He thought it would do a quick blast and be done but no! It empties completely out! Luckily it was only kitchen size but the bad thing was he had a meeting in 30 min completely coated in yellow dust! Good times! :D
