sounds a wee bit strange to me. hard to tell who's telling the truth. there's no real way to draw an accurate conclusion without hearing more from each party. 

I have seen a few of these stories. Thanks for the list!












Who knows who's telling the truth now. we live in quite a crazy world

LOL! Love that first one. I often treat lows while naked, ha, ha.

I really don't know if it's smart to fire people based only on second-hand information, unless there was already evidence of similar problems in the past.

I think it's especially wrong to publicly say why they were fired when it's based on second hand information.  In fact, on that note, I think they're completely justified in suing.

The first story read like it was out of The Onion.

I am not going to lie, I have certainly used diabetes before as an excuse to get myself out of less than desirable situations. That being said, this firing seems to have no merit. The only proof is that of a janitor who claims to have seen two women in an intimate moment. Personally, I know that one of my symptoms of low BS is a change in temp. I find it very plausible to take off a sweater. I really can imagine a janitor walking by a classroom where one female is taking off another female's sweater and his imagination going a little wild. Diabetes or not, I have to agree with Elizabeth that it is not so wise to fire people based on second hand information.
