My Boss Made Me Do It
It's time to come clean Vinglers.

What is the craziest, most bizarre, (maybe illegal) thing you've done... all because your boss made you do it?

My story

I had recently relocated to LA and my boss calls me into her office and hands me a twenty, instructing me to walk down the street to 7-11 and pick up some condoms.
And I'm thinking, is she for real?
Why spend money on condoms at 7-11 when, in the opposite direction, you can grab enough FREE CONDOMS to fill a Halloween pale at the public health department?!
So I looked at her and asked if she had any preferences.
As if it was business as usual, she said, "Text me when you get there. What are my options?"
So, I did what any dutiful employee would do. I went and get her a box of condoms, which has to be the most random request I've ever had from a boss.

Working at a nursing home my charge nurse asked me to check how much urine some patient had during my shift. When I got there all the urine was on the floor, so I cleaned up and told her I couldn't do it and explained her why. She looked at me very serious and said "you are gonna go back, clean it with a towel, squeeze it into the bottle and measure it", and what happened later... I'll continue the story another day lol

One time I was feeling really sick, but my manager couldn't 'afford to let me go home', so she asked if she could just give me a slightly extended lunch so I could just go to the doctor and come back. Hahahahahaha. I still can't believe that happened. To be fair, I definitely went to my doctor's office knowing they would be like "Um, we're booked?"

@marshalledgar it was my first job man! I looked at her like "are you serious? " and she started laughing. Because I was new there, many of my coworkers made jokes or crazy requests like this nurse.
