Craziest employee freakout?

What’s the craziest true story you have about a co-worker freaking out in the office?

Mine: had a co-worker throw a chair across the room into the wall, making a hole. He was angry that the group didn’t agree with his suggested implementation. (Didn’t happen at Netflix btw)

      Makes sense to me. I'd probably GTFO after witnessing something like that.

    The day after Trump won, people were sobbing, yelling profanities, and punching desks at a previous company. It was so hard to not grin like a fool that day. Their liberal tears were delicious.

    Not this company: women booked co-crying room after trump won. There were hugging rooms with title womens only hugging room to cope with trump presidency. I wonder how these people deal with regular work stress.

    My manager was out of office chasing his crush and a new employee just took his office and job; after he came back he talked to the CEO and demanded his job back but the CEO demoted him to a sales job; he lost his mind and punched a hole through the wall in a rage of anger

    I'm embarrassed to say this but I myself am guilty. My manager - a confidence-destroying bully who gave me nightmares - was standing behind me screaming at me to show him an e-mail that I should have CCed him on, and of course I couldn't do it because it had already been sent. He wouldn't stop yelling and slamming his hand on my desk and I was this close to punching him and ruining my life... so I threw a piece of junk mail across the room.

    I was disciplined and demoted, and had to wrote an apology letter to the CEO for my misbehavior; no idea what happened to my manager as he switched departments.

      He had made a mistake entering an order and I was negotiating with the broker in our partner's country to try to fix it. I hadn't specifically asked the guy on the other side to CC everyone in his reply that I had CCed when writing to him, and he wrote back only to me. Manager came in in the morning expecting to see that person's e-mail in his inbox and saw nothing. When I arrived for my night shift, there it was, in my inbox only.
