He threw a cup of HOT coffee in my managers face!

I worked at a restaurant once and a man was extremely intoxicated so we had to ask him to leave. We even offered to get him a cab home, free of charge.

Well, he didn't like that. About 10 minutes after he left the premises, he came storming back in with a large cup of gas station coffee and THREW IT in my managers face calling him every name under the sun...

Luckily, we caught the whole thing on our security cameras.

Craziness!! What's the most unbelievable thing that's happened while you were working?

WOW that must have been scary to witness. I had a fellow student pass out during one of our clinicals once and knock over a whole tray stand of sanitized surgical tools! she was really embarrassed when she came around, it caused such a commotion.

I worked for an ad agency in Manhattan. One of the owners allowed a friend of his to use a cubicle space at our location. This guy was actually living in the cubicle. One day we had him on security leaving the office with shoes and coming back hours later looking worse for wear without them. Another time he was found curled up on the conference room table in a drug addled sleep and that was the last straw for me. I marched in, and yelled for him to get out of the agency and he was not to return. My assistant watched him gather his "stuff" and saw him off the premises. Security notified under no circumstances was he to be allowed in the building again. I told the partners I had taken action to protect the young women working there and their agency. Not one of them approached me to make comment because they knew I was steaming at them. The stories of this agency became legendary in the industry. It was a daily up hill battle of sex, drugs and vodka.
