Intercoms are dangerous because there is always the risk that people will leave them on and say something that they shouldn’t for everyone at the workplace to hear. This Redditor said that his colleague accidentally chose the wrong channel and the entire store heard an unfortunate message.
@spaghettios said: “He was addressing the Manager, but the announcement, heard by all, was: “Mr. Burke, a pallet of Jello just came off the truck, and it’s crawling with roaches.” Needless to say, the store emptied quickly, and business was very poor for the next few months.” There’s an intercom error that could have been avoided.
