A bad choice….
Two Boise Parks Department Zamboni drivers who made a joy ride lunch run to a Burger King are out of work and may even face criminal prosecution.
Boise Parks officials fired them immediately upon hearing of the stunt. The two employees decided it would be fun to drive the rigs half a mile from the City owned and operated ICE WORLD indoor skating rink at the outlet mall to the hamburger joint.
When you’re hungry you’re hungry I guess. But I think the Boise Park Director says it best.
Parks Department director Jim Hall called the stunt, “One of the five stupidest things I have seen in 35 years of work in public parks.” He didn’t elaborate on the other four, but our curiosity is certainly aroused.
I agree. I would also like to know what those other four stupid things are as well, just for the humor aspect.
UPDATE: The comments for this story have a few guesses for the other things Mr. Hall might have seen.
– A zoo manager taking a zoo monkey to town and leaving it unattended in his vehicle. It escaped and broke every car antenna off for an entire city block near the Federal Bldg.
–After hours parties where wagers were made on Ostrich races.
— Land Tortoises being “rented” out for children’s birthday parties.
–An employee attempting to hurry along the molting stage of a large snake and cooking it on a heating pad.
Not sure if these are true, but I hope so.
