From top government offices to your local paper company, no place of business is exempt from the occasional scandal. Often times more shocking or entertaining than a late night drama, the following workers share the jaw-dropping scandals that happened at their companies.
"This is particularly funny because this happened in a government office. The main office, in DC, of the SEC. Yep, while reviewing those big mergers and IPOs, with literally billions of dollars flowing through that office, this was going on (email numbers are approximate - they are probably much, much higher): Email 1: You are so sexy. I can't believe you with that ice cream - I wanted to lick that drip off your chin and down your breast. Your tits are so f--king hot. I can't wait until tonight. Me: WTF???! I turn to my office mate, who is turning to me simultaneously - 'did you just -' We hear laughing in the hallway. Turn back to the email. I am now laughing hysterically as I realize what happened: some idiot accidentally hit 'reply all' (which, on our stupid a-- antiquated system went to the entire Corp Fin office, all 350 of us, attorneys and accountants with huge snotty attitudes and even bigger lists of contacts), and his naughty note was transmitted to all of us. Yipes. Emails 2--50: Increasingly funny and inappropriate responses are mass emailed as we all realize what happened. Personal favorite: Sorry, my cat got there first. I, um, may be late tonight. Email 51: Email from original sender apologizing for mass email, and admonishing everyone to stop sending responses. People have now figured out and passed along that sender is (a) married and (b) not to person described in letter. Bigger yipes. Email 52--2000+: Emails go NUTS. No work is done. At all. Email 2001: Email from original sender that he is going home and not returning for remainder of week for 'obvious reasons.' Sender never returns to work. Aaaaand....scene. Your tax dollars at work" (Source).
