The Morning Brew: And you think you had a bad day at work
City employees stung by bees
So you think you had a bad day at work? Two City of OKC workers will probably not forget their Wednesday anytime soon. While clearing debris the pair found themselves in the cross hairs of a swarm of angry bees.
Oklahoma City workers were caught off guard Wednesday morning as thousands of bees began swarming them while they were picking up brush and trees.
Just before 11 a.m., debris removal crews were working near SE 23 and Walnut Avenue when they used a grappling arm to pick up a large, hollowed-out tree and set it in the back of a dump truck.
One of the workers was stung about 15 times and the other just a couple as they both ran to the safety of the truck’s cab, said Capt. David Macy, spokesman for the Oklahoma City Fire Department.
Fortunately they came away without any serious injuries, which is more than the poor folks in the 1978 film "The Swarm" could say.
Employer jitters over 788 vote
Oklahoma employers are at risk of being dragged into court and face as-yet-unidentified penalties unless changes are made to the state's medical marijuana law, a business advocacy group told lawmakers Wednesday.
Officials with the State Chamber of Oklahoma said the Legislature should define a new course of legal action in employer-employee medical marijuana cases.
