If there's anything that discourages kids from a life of crime, it's an anthropomorphic penis (yes, penis - to a 6-year-old, "weiner" and "penis" are the same thing) with big googly eyes. That'd scare me away faster than the former convicts working the cash register.

A hearse driver and funeral director made a pit stop, leaving the body and coffin of the veteran they were transporting in the hearse.  They were on their way to a funeral service and left the hearse waiting in the parking lot while they took a coffee break. Both employees were fired for this thoughtless and disrespectful move when it was brought to the attention of Veterans Funeral Care, the funeral home they were working for.

In a fascinating case of WTF, this news channel's weather report graphic began with a few frames depicting what can only be described as some sort of odd demon man. I mean, I've heard the weather term "hot as hell," but this is pushing it!

Scumbag Comcast Got a Man Fired by Contacting His Employer About His Complaint

The Consumerist reports that a man known as Conal complained to Comcast after he was billed for services he didn't actually have. After Conal's complaint, the company promised him extra television channels as a make-good but instead sent him a variety of equipment he didn't need.

Conal complained to Comcast again after he was billed $1,820 for the surplus hardware. This is where things get interesting. Conal, who says he works for a large American accountancy firm, compiled a spreadsheet showing every erroneous charge he had received from Comcast, which he sent to the company.

Comcast then apparently refused to reverse the error, so in February 2014, Conal decided to try something else. Being an accountant, Conal contacted Comcast's comptroller, the office that looks after the company accounts. He said he repeatedly called them about his bill, telling them that Comcast should be investigated by the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board.

The Consumerist says that after this, Comcast got in touch with Conal's employer.

At some point shortly after that call, someone from Comcast contacted a partner at the firm to discuss Conal. This led to an ethics investigation and Conal's subsequent dismissal from his job; a job where he says he'd only received positive feedback and reviews for his work.

Terrible customer service from Comcast has itself become a meme and was recently highlighted by making a man wait on hold until the office closed and by a customer service rep refusing to cancel a man's service.
