‘My Colleagues and I Are Convinced That One of Our Co-Workers Is Insane’


The details are bizarre and too numerous to go through, but as an example, when collecting clothes for needy children we found that this worker, who admitted to never having been in a relationship, mentioned that he had a basement full of toddler clothing. When I told him about an encounter with a pushy beggar, he said: ‘You should have sliced his hand off with my knife.’ I have this fear that something bizarre will happen and then when the police ask: ‘Were there any signs?’ we’d answer: ‘Sure, tons of them.’ Yet what were we going to do? Go to human resources and tell them he’s crazy?” [Dear Lucy/FT via Jezebel]
