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.

I can't eat Terry's Chocolate Oranges either
That's cos I worked at Terry's of York for a couple of months about a decade ago...when there was still a Terry's factory in York.

Worst job I ever had, even given the huge amount of chocolate we were able to stuff down our clothes and smuggle out each morning as the night shift ended.

I never saw anyone washing their hands after going to the toilet, but I used to wash mine BEFORE I went for a piss, to get the gunky, shitty, chocolate residue off my hands.

We had people walk off the line every night it was so relentless, one bloke broke a finger stacking full boxes onto a pallet the pace was so fast.

The smell inside was rank.

Wish I'd got a got at Rountrees instead - or Nestles - could have been packing Polos and KitKats...

And if you'd been at Cadbury's
you could've been packing fudge.

work in any food production factory is remarkably the same
once you see food made in industrial quantities it tends to put people off of there favorite food

Talking to a truck driver some years ago
He was telling me that he was parked up in a car park in York having his lunch when he noticed a JCB doing some digging not so very far from him. Suddenly there was an almighty bang and blue flash , the digger driver had cut through a live electicity cable . No one was hurt but the Terry's Chocolate factory came to a grinding halt as it was the very cable that supplied them with power.
