Compared to other stories here, this is extremely mild. Anyway, many years ago, I worked in a program for the chonically mentally ill. The Director of the program liked to hold his money on the close side.
The Director purchased a painting at a second hand store, not a great painting, but nice, and well worth more than the $10 he paid for it. (Or at least I would have paid more).
The frame was starting to work loose on one side, but some glue and a clamp should have done it. Instead, Director decided to ask one of the higher functioning clients to fix it because client was a journeyman carpenter.
Except he wasn't. Client had no skills at all. Director gets his framed picture back, and there are nails everywhere: gouging great holes in the frame, pushed completly through the frame and sticking through the picture. And he didn't fix the part that needed to be fixed.
At least it only cost Director $10.
