Amusing Secrets That Workers Revealed About Their Employers

The anonymous online forum Reddit had a thread going recently: "What's something that is common knowledge at your workplace that will be mind blowing to the rest of us?"

The responses came from workers at Staples, Chili's, Outback Steakhouse, Laser Quest and lots of unnamed businesses, including a retirement home, a fan club and gaming company.

Their answers are illuminating. And sometimes terrifying. And not entirely verifiable. But regardless, we've pulled together the best ones, so that you'll never drive past a truck, order sizzling fajitas, or buy a signed poster the same way again.

You all need to pay attention to what truckers say about what they experience on the road. It's a matter of life and death. They don't want to get into accidents and most of the accidents caused on the interstates are caused by you ... the personal drivers. These professional drivers are out there to earn a living and then get home to their families. They don't work 9-5, they have to comply with extremely strict laws, they have to put up rude drivers who cut them off, show them no courtesy, flip them off. They have to deal with rude jerks at many of the locations they drive to, sleep in their trucks, shower in truck stops, eat less than homemade food. They're considered as rolling ATMs and criminals by the government and often times brutally harassed by DOT inspectors who love to push their weight around knowing these drivers can't do a thing about it. Yet, in spite of all this, truckers are expected to maintain professionalism when what they'd love to do sometimes is push you into a jersey wall because you cut him off. Sadly, truckers are often the first to be contacted by officials to assist in looking for kidnapped children and victims of human trafficking. What kind of thanks do they get?

This is stupid! Of course some older people still want to have sex and thank God they are able to do so and enjoy it! Unless I knew the guy real well I wouldn't because of all the STDs going around but hey, if it's a good friend and you know they are clean, go for it!

Did you know that there has been a spike in the transmission of S.T.D's ? A large majority has been found in those senior care facilities...Because most of those old folks don't think that they can be the carriers for those ailments. That and they are embarrassed to find out they have caught something like that. Really, who would believe that Grandma or Grandpa is sexually active at their age....Just the thought of said image is disturbing me.....

Really? So seniors are just like....people?

There has been an impressive increase in STD's in the over 50 crowd so that should be addressed but the solution to walking in on them.....knock on the door and wait until you are told to enter. It works for all ages, trust me, I've tested it.

As a State Certified Long-Term Care Ombudsman (3 years), which authorized me to go into nursing homes to monitor State and Federal laws as to the care of residents, I was aware of many seniors "hooking up" while residing in nursing homes. I was strongly in favor of such unions as long as both parties were aware, alert and could make decisions for themselves. I was also aware of those who could not and became easy pray on those who could. Nursing home staff should be trained as to the type of relationships that are forming - does each party agree to the union.
