How exactly did a boss think it would go when he instructed his nearly all-female staff to “forget about” and not to “mention” the sex-scandal involving its recently re-hired male employee…. That is exactly what we’re about to find out today on Office horror stories!

Here’s a preview of the office horror story we will be talking about: 

My boss and the owner of the festival were very cheap when it came to working with our partners. They expected us to give as little as possible, and in return they wanted everything. Most of the performers ever made there was about $15, and some of them had been working for the festival their entire lives! For a lot of performers, the festival is their only source of income. The breaking point for me was when one of the main entertainers was arrested for sexually assaulting a woman on the festival grounds the prior year. My boss, who was friends with this entertainer, told all of us interns (all-female mind you) to not speak of the arrest to anyone in public. She asked us to pretend like it never happened and to stop listening to any news stories about it, even though all of us were terrified since this entertainer had come into the office and talked to us before. After we were told to stay hush about the scandal, I realized it wasn't worth it to stay interning there, and I found a new job right away.
