Walmart workers filmed playing iPad frisbee

Apple-lobbing contest

SANS - Survey on application security programs

Four Walmart employees were said to have been sacked this week after filming themselves deliberately throwing what they claim are boxed iPads around one of the supermarket chain's stockrooms.

The workers, from Walmart's Pikeville, Kentucky store, can be seen lobbing boxes carelessly around the room.

“This is why you don’t buy an iPad from Walmart,” quips one.

As one of the other group members grabs a box and hurls it towards the ground, the cameraman jokes, "I hope nobody buys that."

What he should have been thinking is, I hope nobody finds this video and posts it on the internet. But someone did:

An anonymous tipster discovered the recording and sent it to Reddit user SenorPierre, who uploaded the footage to the web. According to posts on the site, the lads all subsequently lost their jobs.

Some viewers have questioned whether it's all a fake. But even if they were tossing empty boxes around as a joke, you can bet the store's managers didn't see the funny side. ®
