Have you ever had an employee or co-worker do something
damaging or disgusting upon leaving your firm or company? Well,
here's a good one. I read about a woman who worked for a New

upon getting fired. Nothing was immediately noticed, but
apparently, about a week after her dismissal a stench spewed
forth from the woman's cubicle. The woman had sandwiched a
whole salmon between two papers in a file cabinet. No tartar
sauce was to be found.
