Things not to do at work

http://www.usatoday.com/news/offbeat...-zamboni_x.htm

Two employees of the city's ice skating rink have been fired for making a midnight fast-food run in a pair of Zambonis.

An anonymous tipster reported seeing the two big ice-resurfacing machines chug through a Burger King drive-through and return to the rink around 12:30 a.m. on Nov. 10. The squat, rubber-tired vehicles, which have a top speed of about 5 mph, drove 1 miles in all.

How many Zambonis does it take to get a burger?

Re: Things not to do at work

Evidently the snack bar at the ice rinks was closed, too pricey, or non-existent. What's a hungry Zamboni driver and his assistant to do with all that down time and reoccurring hunger pangs? Good for them!

That's probably why they were fired-- for not carpooling.

Either that or they were street racing...
