Boss Takes Away Company ChairsIn a Bad Boss contest, this winner takes the gold cup. A former employee at a Minnesota non-profit started work to raise money for a cause. They had to reach goals. They were on their way...
So the first month after launch and doing $75K, we were all proud of ourselves, but we were all written up because "it wasn't enough"Best of all: A disabled employee had her chair taken away, too. Since her job description was rewritten as a "standing only" position, the writer was required to fire her.
The second month we doubled sales to $150K, but "it wasn't enough"...so to "teach us a lesson" Our boss took away all of our chairs...FOREVER!!!
Yes, we were in the ecommerce department, with NO CHAIRS, hunched over our desks working on computers all day long.
Boss Fires Employees for Putting Bird Seed Hex on HerOnly in Miami... In 2011, City Manager Lyndon Bonner announced layoffs and budget cuts, including some to the North Miami Police Department. Two employees, Officer Elizabeth Torres and secretary Yvonne Rodriguez, asked a janitor in Bonner's building if she would please sneak into his office and sprinkle birdseed all around it. It was part of a Santeria curse - from the Yoruba religion, brought to the Caribbean from African slaves - designed to make the city manager want to leave his position.
Instead, the janitor reported the request and the workers were both canned. Tall about your all-time backfires.
Boss Pimps Out Employee's WifeCall this one a Long Con. Shelley Lynn worked at McDonald's, which is known for his minimum wages, lack of benefits, and weak job protection. The employer is so useless, in fact, that it forced Lynn into a life of prostitution.
Hold on, it's more complicated than that. Actually, it's very complicated.
Lynn met Keith Handley in 1982 when she worked the counter at a McD's in Arroyo Grand, CA. At 29, she already had three children and three ex-husbands, so she was happy to meet franchise owner Handley. He was educated, older, and English. And he stood by the manager when he fired Lynn for not putting ice away.
After her termination, Handley never gave Lynn money, but he did take her and her children to McDonald's every night. Back on welfare, she went to Las Vegas to try to be a dancer. Handley bought a house there for them, but it was hard to keep up homes in both places. Eventually, he convinced her to start prostituting herself.
At the end of 1986, Handley took Lynn to Chicken Ranch Brothel in Pahrump, NV, where she worked for the next 6 years. She had sex with many, many gentlemen, and Handley asked her to describe her trysts to him. They hung out with other McDonald's franchisees and their wives. They were living the good life.
The couple drew up in a romantic prenup and married in March 1988. Soon after, Handley started pimping his blushing bride out on freelance hooking gigs.
Things went on this way for years, until Handley - not Lynn - filed for divorce in 1994. Still, if 12 years of forced prostitution does not a horrible boss make, for the life of me, I don't know what does.
