Fired Man Goes Back to Work Smelling of Booze, Threatens Former Boss

  • Being disgruntled is a full time job

A man who recently lost his job decided it would be easier to shake down his former boss for money than stand in the state's unemployment line.

According to police, the disgruntled employee walked into his former place of work on the 3000 block of Mission Street, smelling of alcohol and marijuana, and "verbally abused" his old co-workers and threatened employees. Why? For money, of course.

The building manager told police that the man demanded a large amount of money from the office, claiming it was owed to him. However, the manager explained that because he was only there for two months, the amount of money he was demanding was more than he was owed (and worth?).

But denying a drunk man money never ends well.

The suspect got angry and continued to threaten employees until a security guard asked

him to shut up and leave. Now might be a good time to mention that the same disgruntled worker had gone to the office a week before, threatening to destroy company cars, which would have cost him money. But we digress.

The suspect babbled on a while longer the manager called the cops. By the time police arrived, the suspect had left the building, probably thinking his work there was done.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
