Have you heard the one about the guy whose company car was impounded by the police? As it turns out, the car had been “stolen” and the guy “found it” at a crack house. After he retrieved his keys from the residents of the house, he realized they had kept his dust buster. So, he went back into the crack house to get it, just as the police raided the house!

There were several vacancies in the employee roster shortly thereafter.
