Well small update on the husband, he quit. New DM caused problems and singled him out because he was the old DM's golden child.
Got two stories today!
This story was only recently resolved and honestly, is disgusting. When he worked there, he and his coworkers smoked. They would leave their butts in a corner on the ground and at the end of they day one of 'em would go clean up the mess.
Well there's a middle school about a block away, and a few "brilliant'" teenage boys started to notice that some of the cigarettes weren't fully smoked so would PICK THEM UP OFF THE GROUND and light them up and smoke them.
They did this a couple times before my husband caught them in the act and chased them off. He kept tabs on them, and they came by every school day to see if there were any they could "salvage." Well when he called the cops they told him they couldn't do anything.
He ended up setting out a sign that said the following: "Attention kids, one of my employees has hepatitis and is one of the smokers here. You need to talk to your parents so they can go get you tested."
It wasn't long before he got calls from a couple angry parents demanding to know why he infected their little angels. He told them exactly what they did, and the line would go quiet before they thanked him for bringing that to their attention and would hang up. One man even brought his son in to apologize. Never ceases to amaze what some dumb teens will do to smoke.
I was almost full term with our daughter and a week prior we had the tour of the hospital and all the information given to us about the upcoming birth, including the warnings that we needed to get vaccinated against pertussis (whooping cough).
We signed the agreement to get the shot as well as our daughter getting it as well. We go back home, and all was well until that week. He and his ASM Honkeymex (his nickname), were catching up on paperwork when a woman comes in looking awful and had a nasty cough.
She walks around and is touching EVERYTHING she can get her hands on and spots my husband. She is to be known as Crazy Pertussis Lady.
Crazy Pertussis Lady: Hey! I need help here, I need a cable, and damn quick, I am sick and need to get home!
Hubby: Sure thing ma'am, what kind of cable do you need?
Crazy Pertussis Lady: I don't know, just a cable! Hurry up and find it, I gotta get home, the doctor just diagnosed me with pertussis!
Hubby pauses and backs up further away from her.
Hubby: Ma'am I have to ask you to not get any closer to me. I am very sorry, but my wife is pregnant and due any day and I don't want to get this and get her and our daughter sick. I will gladly help you, but I cannot get any closer. Now over here--
Crazy Pertussis Lady: HOW DARE YOU!? Discriminating against me because I have a cough? I don't give a damn about your brat and slut wife, if they get sick and die who cares? I WANT MY DAMN CABLE!
Hubby: Get. Out. I said I would still help you and only asked that you didn't get close. Your business here is not as important to me than the health and safety of my family. Leave. Now.
Crazy Pertussis Lady: WHO IS YOUR BOSS? I AM GETTING YOU FIRED!
He points out the card with his DM's name on it and she took one and stormed out. He and Honkeymex spent the rest of the day practically soaking the store and products in Lysol.
He ends up getting a call with his DM (old one) laughing and told him to ignore it. That woman was nuts and he was surprised he didn't throw the woman out the second she let loose her diagnosis.
Honestly, a damn cable was so fucking important that she had to risk infecting everyone? When he got home and told me about that gem, I was a bit pissed at first then busted out laughing. Fucking weirdos everywhere.
