When you’re too drunk to go to work, don’t post that fact on Facebook.

October 27, 2008

Learn from the example of Kyle Doyle, a 21 yr. old young man who just doesn’t understand how to cut out of work. Kyle decided to have a few too many drinks one night recently and got trashed. He subsequently informed his employer that he would be staying home from work for medical reasons. The scene was playing out like it does all over the world until young Kyle made a stupid, stupid error. He posted the following line as his Facebook status:

‘not going to work, f*** it i’m still trashed SICKIE WOO.’

I’m not sure what “SICKIE WOO” means, but I’m guessing Kyle was praying to his deity of choice for relief from the drink. Please read below to see when it gets fun and Kyle learns the value of discretion. The following is the exchange with his HR rep when Kyle tried to have his leave processed.

The full exchange:

HR: Please provide a medical certificate stating a valid reason for your sick leave on Thursday 21st2008.

Kyle: “1 day leave absences do not require a medical certificate as stated in my contract, provided I have stated that I am on leave for medical reasons.”

HR: Usually that is the case, as per your contract. However please note that leave during these occasions is only granted for genuine medical reasons. You line manager has determined that your leave was not due to medical reasons and as such we cannot grant leave on this occasion.

Kyle: My leave was due to medical reasons, so you cannot deny leave based on a line manager’s discretion, with no proof, please process leave as requested.

HR:I believe the proof that you are after is below (a screen grab of the Facebook page is attached to the email).

The company announced it was launching an investigation.

Man gets stuck inside porta-potty……and not just in the door, but in the waste receptacle.

June 15, 2008

A man gets drunk and goes into a portable toilet and takes his clothes off. And then it gets weird…..

(AP) Rescue crews had to cut apart a portable toilet to rescue a man who got stuck naked inside the potty.

Authorities say 31-year-old Shannon Hunter, of Lebanon, Pa., used his cell phone to call 911 on Sunday from inside a portable toilet.

Police say Hunter had been drinking and had taken off his clothes. Somehow, he immersed himself in the holding tank.

Deputy fire commissioner Chris Miller told WPMT-TV, “I’ve been on the job in one form or fashion for 21 years, and this is the first port-a-potty rescue I’ve ever had.”

Police charged Hunter with public drunkenness and creating a health code violation, but they have no idea why he was in the toilet with his clothes off. They say he didn’t suffer any serious injuries.
