What's the worst thing you've seen a co-worker do at work?

This woman is accused of stealing $143,000 from her company. That seems pretty rotten.

Be very careful on accusations. Think like an attorney you maybe held liable.

A piece of electronic telecom equipment, with which I had no involvement, was on my workbench when I arrived to work one morning. I took the equipment with me to the warehouse intending to inquire with our lone warehouse associate/material handler about this equipment. I thought he would perhaps know from where it came and to whom it may belong so that I might return it. I assumed someone left it on my bench after working with the device. Instead of answering my question, he grabbed the device and tossed it backwards over his shoulder at great height and distance smashing it into racks of legacy home office rack equipment which the company had just purchased and received into the warehouse.

Yeah, I locked the door one morning and ignored it for about a half hour, I used that to make him change his ways. He finally got fired and I got promoted...

In most cases if the company has an attendance policy that is enforced, the co-worker is not going to be around long enough to bother you.

I felt proud when this lady came through my line and was buying all her groceries and also wanted our four for $10 promotion. She said she would come back for the waters. An hour passed and she still hadnt come and i saved her receipt. I walk to the bathroom where a coworker is talking to her and surprised like me because she didnt come back for her water. She says her ride didnt come and she cant walk because she had problems with her back and feet. She says she was trying to eat the food she bought at our cocina before it got cold but she didnt know what to do, she didnt have anywhere to take her groceries or water. We asked her where she lived and sure enough it was close. My coworker and i offered to get her an uber and helped her with all her stuff since she couldnt even walk let alone lift.i knew i walked in to the right place at the right time. We have a customer for life. She comes for all her shopping needs. And thats when i was proud to work for cardenas. #humanitarian #passiton #bekind #OneLove #BeGenerous #groceryStore # #coworkers #customerservice #motivation #spreadLove

Stop Farting, PLEASE

I sit next to the gassiest coworker ever on my sales team. It may sound funny, but I feel like I'm DYING every afternoon after he eats lunch. How can I bring it up without embarrassing him? And how exactly do you tell someone to STOP FARTING??

In the month of June I was fired from my job. A month before they talked to me because I was part of a group chat whatsapp from my old job. I decided to share new thing without bad intentions. My mistake was that thing i shared had a personal phone number which Im not supposed to share because is private. They talked to me and I told them that I know I acted unprofessional but never with bad intentions. They never gave me a memo or nothing they said ok. Who did they know? An ex- coworker decided to send those to HR or my ex manager. She went to same interview as me but she did not got hired and I know she did it on purpose. A month after they decided to fired me because of that situation which they said I could appeal it. I wrote a letter to HR explaining why I would deserved a second opportunity and 3 days after I called them and they said they would call me back but never did. After 2 months I send them another email but again no response and this is a big recognize company. I never told them I was bullied inside, I don't want them to think I am mention it just to get them. Should I put them as a reference for others job? Should they have answered me? Should I keep trying?

I turned a bad workday into a GREAT one by...

My bosses were amazing so bad days lasted maybe an hour and the bosses or coworkers always helped turn it around. Stupid jokes or something random that completely took my mind off of whatever was annoying me. #foodservices #motivation #coworkers

This happens to me all the time, and although I may not be good at it, I have found it is best to do nothing. If you trying to right the wrong, you just come off as petty and the one likely lying. I just wait until they need fixes or changes that only I can do. Then they all figure it out on their own. If you want to get sneaky, you could ask for a discussion on some part of the project, as to if the right choices were made, and what the other options were. Then the person faking it will be again obvious, because they won't have a valid opinion.

I would let them take the credit to not embarrass them, but I would address the co worker in private about it.

What job did you have where you loved your coworkers?

I see so many posts in the community about jobs our members loved because of their coworkers. It's the number one reason that I've seen on why people loved their job. When was a time that you were part of a team that just crushed like these laborers are doing here with this spike? What do you think was the reason you were all so effective working together?

In my opinion, I believe that more than loving the coworkers, we have to love the work that we are doing.

I did when I worked at walmart. I think it was because of our department manager and since I was in shoes I was the jewelry dept lunch relief. I loved both departments my co workers the job in general. I have been to other Walmart stores that were definitely not the same. One other job I loved was as a waitress at a Mexican restaurant. I loved the experience..
