What's the most unprofessional thing you have ever done at work... or seen someone else do?

Here's mine...and actually, it wasn't me, it was something I witnessed.  A girl near where I was sitting would take off her shoes and socks and clip her toenails.  You can't make this stuff up!  Also, another place I worked I would find clipped fingernails on the floor.  Good Grief- if you are going to clip your fingernails (which is really gross anyway, do that at home) at least clean up after yourself and throw those nasty things away!!

There was a survey done on the most unprofessional things people have done at work and top of the list is watching porn.  In this day and age, why would you ever do that?  The chances of a virus coming along with that are pretty high, among the other things that happen.  Just not a good idea.  Here are some of the other responses:

"Had a Skype interview with another company."  


  "Made cupcakes with Ex-Lax because people kept stealing my lunch."


 "Went to the movies, then back to the office to clock out."


  "The girl sitting next to me roasted a whole chicken at her desk."


"Had sex with my boss for a $3 raise."  


 "Packed all eight of my students up in my car to go see why my man wasn't answering the phone."


 "A customer told me he was allergic to chives so I put chives in his quesadilla so he would send it back untouched and I could eat it." 

Some of these are just straight up mean.  And passive aggressive revenge.  And some of the others seem like you'd be super embarrassed, or should be after you think about what you've done.  Wow.

What have you done...or what have you seen others do?
