Disclaimer: you know the drill….

So yesterday we get a "YOU ARE INVITED AND WILL ATTEND" meeting notice in the conference room.
Things have been pretty quiet at the job, so I wander down there.
PD (Plant director), starts off the meeting. "This has nothing to do with us, but we have to inform everyone per corp. policy to keep an eye open for "things like this".

Sooooo…it seems that they had to "let an employee go", at another facility because he was having "amorous relations" with the product on the shipping dock.

Now mind you, the product is in cases and stacked four cases high on a pallet….and wrapped in plastic.

Soooo…it seems our company did a special run of product at this one facility and that the special run had a special label for breast cancer awareness. Had a picture of a really REALLY pretty lady on the product.
Well..employee liked the lady "a little too much"…cut a hole in the plastic wrapping next to the ladies face and well…shall we say.."Went to town"….

He got caught…

The main response around the table was "EEEEEWWWWW!!!"

So naturally he is gone (and broken hearted), and that whole line of product had to be inspected and any questionables resulted in the entire pallets being pulled and disposed of…

It never ceases to amaze me….

Submitted respectfully;

And you like to claim you're not a weirdness magnet…

Brian Bronson Inactive Member31 May 2013 10:06 a.m. PST

Errrr…What was that you were saying about NOT being a weirdness magnet?

Oh, and definitely "Eeeeewwww"

But when you have THAT urge… *shudder*

That's not weird.
That's Corporate America.

Sorry guys you cannot blame this one on Murph!

It was at another facility…

I didn't blame this on you. It's not your fault you're a weirdness magnet. You just are.

I'm going with the "Corporate America" answer.

In my nearly 40 years in the work place, I've walked in on a number of, shall we say, private moments where the participants were embarassed or quite composed. Keeping a straight face is the key (smile).

Even one worse than described here.

Yep, weirdness magnet……

Streitax Inactive Member31 May 2013 12:59 p.m. PST

"It's at another facility", and your point is? You just fail to realize that you are a three dimensional representation of a multi-dimensional force and your reach far exceeds your limited perception of time and distance. In short, you can reach out and touch someone throughout the Universe. So when the Galdoni BDSM Goth Chicks show up to 'dominate' the world, I'm blaming YOU.

As stated earlier in way too many posts on here – the truth is stranger than fiction – and the stranger it is, the more likely it has become trapped in the singularity of weirdness that is Murphy! Thanks for sharing the wonders of weirdness that inhabit your corner of the world!

Well it is a happier ending then the guy working a night shift using the 4"X 20' drive belt on a old milling machine to get off with. I'll let you all think about how that blood covered mess ended.

So, they called the meeting to tell you not to do that.
Right. grin
I guess they felt that the admonition was necessary, for whatever reason.

Wasn't that the one which ended up with a Darwin award?

And in doing so, may have given people in Murphy's location an idea.

"You know, I never thought of that. Cool idea."

kallman31 May 2013 6:41 p.m. PST

Well…urm…talk about lack of self control.

SECURITY MINISTER CRITTER Inactive Member31 May 2013 10:28 p.m. PST

During working hours even.

Tom Bryant31 May 2013 10:28 p.m. PST

I'm voting for the "corporate America" answer as well.

Roderick Robertson Fezian01 Jun 2013 8:40 a.m. PST

Sure Murphy. "Other Location". Like saying "It's not for me, it's for a friend of mine".

jdpintex01 Jun 2013 8:51 a.m. PST

More importantly, where's the picture of the girl. We're missing vital information here!!!!

Hey, it gets lonely on the warehouse floor… Ha!

And here I sit, still out of work and I got to sit next to this twit at the unemployment office :(
