Accidental Credit Card Theft
During my one year working holiday in Australia I had many odd jobs. This particular one came over the tannoy of the hostel I was staying at:
20 people needed for data entry. 12 hr shifts, $12 p/hr.

So about six of us arrived at 10pm in some office space hired in a shopping centre. We were told that there had been a computer error for a major credit card company and, for some convoluted reason that made sense at the time, a "test" charge of $299.99 needed to be taken from each account enabling the credit card company to identify which accounts had been affected.

The guy sat us all down in front of our own credit terminals and hundreds of credit card details and showed us the "test" procedure. After an hour he fucked off and left us there. We worked diligently all through the night and were pleased when he returned at 9am and said that we could leave early as we had worked so hard and to be back for the same time in the evening.
It was only when we got a phone call from some of our friends, who were due to start at 10am for the day shift, asking why they had been told not to come in that we became suspicious.
A couple of friends went back to the offices(less than hour after we had left) and found no trace of the guy or the equipment. They reported it and were later informed that the guy was suspected of being in hiding in South Africa, with MILLIONS of $$! that we had conscientiously and under no supervision stolen for him.

Recently at work.
A colleague at work was trying to be motivating...
"Remember, there's no "I" in team"

"No, but there's a "U" in cunt."

Jim Bowen from bullseye occasionally visited a casino I used to work at. He played roulette and I dealt to him.

Lame to fame.
Spike Milligan used to use the toilet in the Shell garage I worked in. His driver used to buy wine gums for him but once he bought them himself and said "Hello" to me.

I nearly collided with Johnny Vaughan as he was going into the Capital radio building in Leicester square. (He's taller than I expected)

Two of my friends have (seperately) met Sir Trevor McDonald. He shook one friend's hand but apparently gave my friend Big Dan a dirty look.

...and another...
When I was at school I had a weekend job working for Compass, serving fast food in the food hall of the Glades shopping centre. We were told to "sell up" obviously. However we were also told that when anyone ordered a coffee we were to ask "Would you like that in a cup or a mug?"

Some customers wouldn't realise they would be charged more for a mug of coffee as opposed to a cup. But even the customers who did notice thought they were paying more for more coffee. But they both held the same amount of coffee.

I said it once to an old lady, felt bad about it immediately and never did it again. Except to twats of course.
