    Has anyone ever hired or worked with an employee that did something bad or funny?

    I remember hearing about this guy that was pissed off at his boss, so he put something in the engine of a mower and it blew up...the boss wouldn't have found out if the client wouldn't have seen him do it out the window!

    I took a DEP re-cet course and learned the follwing : Never fire an employee who does your pesticide work before the strt of his last day. Basically this employee got so pi$$ed tat he went to a very large corporate HQ's helicopter landing area and used round-up to write FU$$ YOU at the landing site. The guys from DEP got called in and had to fine the applictor business as well as the applicator. Can you imagine the looks on the faces of the HMFIC's of this corporation??
