This is a question Dodgy work ethics

Chthonic asks: What's the naughtiest thing a boss has ever asked you to do? And did you do it? Or perhaps you are the boss and would like to confess.

Some time ago, I worked with a small company
We were a low-profile outfit – offices in remote locations, that sort of thing. In our particular line of business, we were suffering at the hands of a massive multinational that seemed to have limitless resources at its disposal. Our competitors were not averse to hostile takeovers, acquisitions by force and other aggressive business tactics.

Anyway, the bosses of the company I was working with came up with a rather drastic plan to destabilise our competitors: sabotage their HQ. Despite this being a very dangerous proposition with a real risk of criminal prosecution or worse, I signed up; call it misguided idealism if you will, but I believed in the ethos behind our company and felt that our business model was the one that should be adopted as the industry standard.

Although security was very tight (our competitors’ previous HQ premises had fallen victim to large-scale vandalism), we managed to make our way inside and cause considerable damage. Getting out again was a bit hairy, but we managed it thanks to some neatly co-ordinated teamwork. Our actions eventually lead to the downfall of our competitors, enabling a free and fair business environment for everybody. I like to think we were a force to be reckoned with.
