Interns don’t do the most glamorous work, it’s true. In fact, they’re rather simple, laborious tasks that could essentially be done by robots most of the time. The real perk is just getting those bright young minds exposed to the exciting world of grown-up work and office life. Woohoo. And sometimes that involves simply cutting up bags of zip-ties.
That’s a simple task, right? Unfortunately not. Some of these fresh young graduates are a little too used to critical thinking, and a little less used to common sense, such was the case with this promising intern who cut in half $2000 worth of cables.
In Deep Bubbling Trouble
Working in a kitchen can be dangerous. Sharp blades, flames, and pans of sizzling hot oil fill the place. It takes a lot of care to navigate the hazardous environment of a restaurant kitchen, or sometimes any kitchen for that matter. So when this new kitchen porter waltzed in with zero thought, disaster struck.
Sadly it involved a huge bag of cheese and an unlucky chef. One really should know how to carefully handle themselves around a deep fryer. Honestly, it sounds like he was asking for it. Our heart goes out to the chef who got rushed to the emergency room. That worker should be nowhere near a kitchen ever again.
The Drywall IT Guy
The IT industry is flourishing and everyone is trying to make some cash in tech land. While you can learn a lot about these positions on the job, some experience and education can help. In all fairness, the employers did believe that the new guy had exactly that.
Unfortunately for him, two hours later, it became clear that this man had no idea what he was doing and had come from a very different background. Drywall installation to be exact. We'll hand it to him, while he may not know anything about computers, he certainly knows how to fool people, at least temporarily.
And Poof...She Was Gone
When this manager hired a worker at the local diner, he was expecting her to carry out her shift until the very end. Not this one. She supposedly stepped out for a moment, but that moment stretched into about an hour and things started to get suspicious.
At some point, the boss went around the establishment (and outside) looking for her, but mysteriously, she was nowhere to be seen! Later he called her house, only to be answered by her mother. He was forced to pass on the awkward message of "you're fired." Oddly enough, mommy dearest ended up getting mad at him!
Going the Whole Nine Yards
While golfing is hard work, golf course maintenance is probably pretty challenging too. In the case of this unlucky golfing enthusiast, hopping into the golf cart proved to be anything but simple.
Who knew that a golf cart had that much horsepower, to begin with? It was strong enough to keep going with a power washer hose wrapped around it! Sounds like an expensive mistake.
