The un-employee of the month

A Con­necti­cut man is “pin­ing” for his free­dom after being arrested for climb­ing the Christ­mas tree in his town’s square and rant­ing bizarrely until he was removed by cops. The appropriately-named Noel Del­gado got three-quarters of the way up the tree in the mid­dle of New Haven before get­ting stuck because the ban­ner he was car­ry­ing got tan­gled in the branches. Author­i­ties cut off power to the 30,000 LED lights adorn­ing the tree until Del­gado could be removed from his perch.

A Delaware woman Melissa Brit­ting­ham was fill­ing out an appli­ca­tion at a Five Guys loca­tion and then hit the road with hopes of land­ing a gig – as well as 15 bucks in change and small bills that she stole from the tip jar. The wait­resses on duty noticed the miss­ing cash and noti­fied the man­ager, who reviewed secu­rity tapes and saw Brit­ting­ham swip­ing the dough. The man­ager aired her beef with Brit­ting­ham to cops, who arrested her on charges of retail theft. She’ll have to serve one year of pro­ba­tion and pay a $500 fine.

un employee of the monthBeing named “Employee of the Month” is kind of a big deal at one Florida Wal­mart. Willie Mitchell was appar­ently so enraged that his co-worker was named “Employee of the Month” instead of him that he went out into the park­ing lot, grabbed his gun and shot up her SUV – thus guar­an­tee­ing him jail time and lit­tle chance at ever win­ning “Employee of the Month.” In fact, he’s already been ter­mi­nated from his job.
