Did you piss in your pants?

A few years back I used to work with this guy, who was completely worthless. My, as well as many others, feelings for him were no secret. So, we all have to go to a meeting in Dallas, TX (this is when I lived in La.) and we decide to rent a van and drive up. We voluntold one of the other guys to drive so we could drink beer on the way up (4 hour drive). Right as we're crossing the La/Tx line the aforementioned guy, that nobody had any respect for, says he has to pee. It's 8 of us in a van. 7 of us are drinking, a lot. Beer drinking road trips are the best. I'm riding shotgun when about 20 minutes after the "I gotta pee" comment was made another co-worker (who is still one of my best friends) says relatively loud "Dude, did you just piss in your effing pants?" I looked back, saw what happened, restrained my laughter (I'm not that big of an ass) and mentioned to the driver that we should stop soon. We stop, this guy is three shades of red, completely humilitated, and the pee had made it's way down to his shoes. I then decide to ask the obvious question of "Why didn't you tell us to stop?" his response was that he did with the "I gotta pee" comment. I just shook my head. When I have to pee bad enough to where there's a chance that I'm going to piss myself I make it well known. There was an ample amount of containers to urinate in right inside the van. We were at the hotel later that night and we ragged on him pretty hard about it.

[rant]
I've never told anyone about this incident as I can only imagine how bad this guy must have felt. And then today, my boss sends me a copy of a resume'. It's the same guy, AND he used me as a reference. Unacceptable. First off, you ASK if you can use someone as a reference. It's my decision if I want to be used as a reference. And I've said no to close friends before. Secondly, I made my contempt for him as tangible as possible. Why in the hell would you think it was a good idea to use me as a reference? What would make someone think that I would risk a credible reputation in my career path for someone that I'm surprised is capable waking up every morning and brushing their teeth, obviously incapable of letting someone know that you REALLY have to pee, and I know is well aware of my disdain for them.

Is he applying for a job in which a weak bladder would be an asset? If so, I say let bygones be bygones. No use pissing up a rope. If you let your feelings get in front of job number 1, then you are all wet. I am feeling flush now.

True. Even if he is a whiz, if you piss the boss off, urine a lot of trouble for nothing.

THink of all the fun you could have if you hired him? The endless jokes.... maybe some pay dirt if he craps his pants. You should hire him as a jester.

He had the most terrible work ethic I have ever witnessed and he was incapable/unwilling of learning new things.

This thread goes to prove: If you piss your pants, urination unto yourself.

Be nice to the people you meet on your way up the ladder. Because you will meet them again on your way down.

that's true.


however, I can top the reference story.

One of my staff once quit after working for me for about three months or so. He was a nice guy, a little young/immature, not the world's greatest work ethic, but no problems either (trust me, I've had workers with great work ethics but other baggage I wouldn't wish on anyone).

One morning he tells me he is quitting. I ask why, and he is very nice and apologetic about it, says I've been a great boss, etc etc but he just can't stand the work anymore, it's crushing his spirit, yadda yadda. I say, well, okay, I respect your decision, and ask when his last day will be - he says 'today.' I tell him two weeks notice is really the standard and offer to work with him if he has another job lined up, etc. He says no, no new job, just needs to get the hell out asap.

I say well, let's look at where you are with the job you're working on - can you finish it today? He says no. He intends to just leave that moment. I insist that he stay until lunchtime and organize the job with me (he was pretty disorganized) so I can finish it, and have him draft a letter of resignation, since he hadn't done so.

As we were crushed with work (News agency, and it was the middle of an election) I immediately placed an ad for his replacement. You guessed it - he applied. (Our ad was anonymous, though it did specify the type of work/duties). He used me for a reference, though he had not asked me if he could, and even though I very plainly explained that I wanted to help him any way I could if he could just work with me, and the most i got out of him was a few extra hours of scowling at his desk that morning.

I was pissed about the reference part. But I howled when I saw his "cover letter" - which basically said he had left my company because he 'didn't care for the type of work'.....this, while applying for the same exact job.

If I meet people like him on the way down I'm gonna stomp 'em good.

However, to his credit, he probably will not complain that anything he might be asked to do is beneath his dignity.
