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.

Let's see how they like it
I sent bailiffs into Lloyds Bank one luch time, to recover oustanding rent, in central london.
They were not very happy

Man has no life experience, other than going to work, coming home and wanking over eastenders

It has happened but if it was this b3tan that did it is a different matter.

Could easily be true
I once got my solicitor to put a lien on Shell's UK assets to get them to pay an invoice worth a couple of grand which I'd been chasing them for about 18 months. This effectively froze their bank accounts: they were not happy.

I took a phone call from a furious senior manager, told him the facts, and within an hour the money was in my account. Then I had to pay most of it to the solicitor.

I'd be furious too if someone sent a big cat to my office.

So your story is 'I read about this in the paper and tried to pass it off as my own'.

To be fair, he did pay for the paper

no, the story is
i used to work for an international property consultants. This involved sourcing properties, finding tenants, generally looking after the properties and making sure rent was being paid.
We're talking whole shopping centres and business parks, with six figure quarterly rents, not the two up two down at the end of your street.

On one particular occasion the bank was behind on it's rent, and so i called and asked for it to be paid. They said no problem and they would pay it.

They didn't, so I called again and advised that if it was not paid by lunchtime the following day I would take action to ensure payment was recovered. I was assured that it would be.
It wasn't. So I sent in the bailiffs. I recieved a call from the bank manager shortly after lunch offering payment and furious that the bailiffs had gone in. Fuck 'em
