People who work in human resources see some crazy sh*t. For one, their job requires regular interactions with humans—a species of animal known for bizarre, erratic, shady and insane behavior. And humans are not necessarily at our best in a work environment, which is why we need HR people to make sure we do our jobs, abide by the rules, and don't put ourselves or our co-workers or our company at risk. Honestly working at a zoo is probably less challenging than working in HR.

I once had a temp job in HR. I was scanning lots of old personnel files, and the one perk of the job was reading old complaints against people. The best one I came across was a mediation caused by one member of staff accusing another of witchcraft.
