Did you ever have to fire 9 people in one day? Has a colleague ever offered you $1,000 in cash to keep your mouth shut about something you witnessed? How about dealing with 4 baby mamas at the same time because their professional, married, athlete lover couldn’t manage to fill out simple benefit forms? Maybe you had to tell a newly widowed wife that her now-dead husband left a million-dollar policy to his ex because he forgot to change the beneficiary? I’ve been at the epicenter for these maddening conversations and many more.
From getting my tires slashed by co-workers for outperforming them to having a co-worker loosen lug nuts sending a tire flying off while driving, I’ve been in some hairy predicaments with one common denominator; ME! Whether as an employee or a member of management, some of my worst decisions turned well, and some of my best ones blew up in my face. The stories are ridiculous, cringe-worthy, and relatable. After reading through them, ask yourself, what would you have done if you were in my shoes? Would you have been able to keep from being your own Magnet of Madness?
