10. A Bath Isn’t a Job Perk

After a hard day’s work, what do you do to unwind when your shift ends? Dinner? A long, hot shower? Three now former employees of a KFC decided to take a bath. The only problem? They went for their soak in one of the chicken fryer’s dishwashing sinks. Though the restaurant was closed, one of the trio put some pictures on her public MySpace profile and of course, their manager learned of the incident. Apparently, bathing in the multi-section sink is a violation of KFC’s operating standards. Who knew?

A local health inspector noted that the girls’ actions were also a violation of the state health code because “they are not wearing clean outer clothing.” Would it have been all right if they were? Maybe their path to unemployment was a blessing in disguise. Now they are free to find work at a spa, where after-hours bathing is a career benefit.

Moral of the Story

When you want to relax after work, leave work.
