For those among us who aren’t madly in love with their day jobs, fantasies of the day they can finally quit, stick it to your boss and tell everyone else you’ll see them in hell may be the only thing that keeps them going.

On a mid-June evening, an unsuspecting 19-year-old boy went through an experience that changed him into a man.

As the hours dwindled on June 15, Anson Lemmer was getting ready to finish his shift at Uncle Pizza, a local restaurant in Glenwood Springs, Colorado, and head home for the night.

Drunk Boss Violently Yanks Employee’s Testicle During ‘Team Building’ Outing

A New Jersey man is one testicle short after a horrific business “team building” exercise and the actions of a drunk boss led to three failed testicle surgeries. This is the story of Michael Peacock (his real name!).

In 2012, Peacock, 45, worked for data security and storage company Iron Mountain Management. That July, Peacock’s boss, Richard Langtry, thought it would be brilliant to take his employees on a two-day “team-building” outing that would entail bar-hopping and a cruise on the Hudson in upstate New York.
