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?

All of my job are my favorite ! Why will I not love my job , it helps me with all my bills , it feeds me and my two little ones , without a job I’ll end up living on the street and be a homeless. I love all my job and very grateful for it !!! Other people tend to hate their job it’s because of the people they work with , if you encounter a supervisor that’s hungry for power and treats all of the workers her or his slaves , when the power goes over their heads that’s when the problems comes .

Tie between the bomb threat where the boss made me go back in with the police to show them the lockers and at lunch one day when I was held at gunpoint in an armed bank robbery.

I had a coworker that would show up late quite often too, but their performance was absolutely over the top. That person gave 120% and always took care of their own duties. Very efficient with task management.

Unlike two others that were usually early or on time. These two were preoccupied with gossip and personal issues. The two on-time persons were behind on their task often, and the rest of us had to pick up their slack. So, I think it all depends on task management rather than clock-in time.

I was hired as a carver, to replace the carver that left the company. My job:. To carve the logs that were going to be molded and used in gas and propane fireplace systems. I used ceramic blocks and ceramic cauking to produce realistic models, We also would incorporate actual logs , modifing them to fit our needs. I then voluntered to help out the mold shop I learned the molding process for ceramic logs, and refractory logs. Also making foam in place packaging molds and vacuum form panel molds as well as sculpting log sets. I also would make multipal hand carved sets of our prototype logs for trade shows. During my tenure, Monessen Hearth bought Martin Industries, and then Vermont Castings. In 2014 The business was purchased by HHT , Hearth and Home Technologies, to obtain our vent free technology and patents. HHT Closed one of the vermont castings plants down within a year of buying the businesses & had no intentions of keeping the Paris Ky plant open, and started laying off employees in 2015 , and offering to let employees move to other states to work for HHT. I had no interest in HHT as an employer.

Constantly Putting me down

My boss is the owners mom where I work and she comes into the office part time and she pushes me around and talks very disrespectful to me she blames me for mistakes others make. She says things like " everything you do is wrong" "you mess up everything you tourch" insult after insult and I just have to sit there and take it from her. Its unacceptable. what is wrong with employers these days its impossible to find a job where you are treated like a valued employee.

I loved it because I owned it. I was able to access people in the hills, coffee plantations, wineries. and give them a place to display and sell their wares. I provisioned big ships in the Marina in P.V. If it was food, flowers, staff, I was able to draw from all my local contacts to solve everyone's needs.
