Our office got raided twice by CAB in a few months about 15 years ago as part of any investigation into illegal landing of fish. I worked in a coastal town.

Waste of time. We provided professional services to the fish processors which had eff all to do with fish quotas.

From what she said he was a d*** to work with so she just did nothing to it and decided to let someone else decide. Unluckily for him the next person to see it was a manager...

In the 80's, we had a teacher for two years who had no teaching qualifications at all. She was well into her 60s at that stage and dead since.

An inspirational father figure!
A mate of my fathers is in the army , brought home his gun and went out hunting rabbits with it in Stephens Green with it.

Doubtful, as she doesn't swing that way hahaha I don't think the guy was in the right head frame to discern which bathroom was correct

I guess so. It really gets under my skin as I see complete incompetence getting promoted time after time because they're friends with the inner circle.

Years ago, I saw the Gardai walk in one door of our warehouse and an African lad run out the loading bay door 2 seconds later.

I worked in a well known sports shop years and years ago, during my time there they were always going on about jerseys being robbed and security guard doing manual counts of stuff every day etc. After I left I bumped into someone who kept working after I left and they said the security guard was the one caught robbing. He was a fairly good actor.

A guy who worked for the same company as me in the UK was sacked for looking up porn on his work computer several times during lunch breaks. Our computer usage was very strictly monitored and we all knew that so it really was so so stupid of him. My friend worked in the same office as him and he said to her and others: “I don’t see the problem, I never looked up anything during work hours!”.

Not really a scandal but funny nonetheless.

A new girl started in our office a few years back.

About a month or two later, one fella who had been in the company for a few years handed in his notice.

After he left, the new girl told us that she half new him from before from dating apps. She made the mistake at the time of giving him her snapchat username and then got several unsolicited dick-pics before blocking him. She said she saw his face drop when she was being introduced to everyone on her first day.

In fairness to her she waited until after he left the company to tell anyone. The funny thing is he possibly moved company to avoid any awkwardness or embarrassment, but she probably would have kept the whole thing secret if he had stayed.

Worked in hotels for years so there were always affairs between managers and staff. Good few managers caught fleeching the tills.

Moved on to the public sector then. One guy invented having a girlfriend and was telling eveyone about their upcoming wedding. He then announced she was expecting, went on some leave, sent in pics of baby that were circulated on our weekly newsletter. A few of his colleagues suspected something was off, google image reversed the pic of the baby and it was clearly robbed off the internet.
He admitted then it was all lies, ended up in pysciatric care.
Came back after a few months and got a promotion!
