This Man Won 'Employee Of The Month' For A Prank That Caused 200,000 Beers To Be Recalled
Surefire ways to get the sack: 1) Add swear words to bottom of your company's packaging, 2) Tell no one, 3) Force nearly a quarter of a million of the aforementioned sweary packages to be recalled.
At least, that used to be the case. But one man, a Mr Graeme Wallace, did all of the above and more and not only avoided a booting, but actually won Employee of the Month.
It all started when someone accused the company Graeme works for, BrewDog, of not being "punk" enough.
As retaliation, Graeme (naturally) changed the wording on the bottom of the beer cans to read "MOTHER FUCKER DAY", which y'know doesn't really make sense but okay, good.
The cans were then shipped out across the UK, and it didn't take long for people to start sharing photos of the bottom of their beer.
Something strange, terrifying, and possibly magical happened here, because now Graeme's bosses are praising him for his actions.
A spokesperson for BrewDog said: "At another company, someone responsible for a prank like this might have been given the heave ho. At BrewDog, Graeme was awarded Employee of the Month."
Which is great and all, but aren't they setting the bar a bit high? What will people do to win Employee of the Month in future? Also why is the prize for Employee of the Month just a piece of A4 paper with 'Employee of the Month' written on it? We need answers. And a can of that beer.
