Memoirs From The ‘Death Star’ (Part 1)

UK newspaper The Daily Mail claims Jennifer Aniston was recently caught faking a phone call so she wouldn’t have to answer questions from the paparazzi and the public. Her iPhone’s screensaver was visible while she held the phone up to her ear.

Sneaky.

Reminds me of something that happened while I was at my last employers offices downtown in the ‘Death Star’ as it’s so fondly remembered by those who aren’t allowed to work there anymore.

20th and 21st floor of the TD Tower.

I had just walked out of the on-air studio when I noticed a well dressed guy that I had never seen before walking and talking on his cell phone.

Or so I thought.

Turns out this guy was a thief and was going office to office and stealing personal items like cash, phones, and anything else of value.

Managed to clean us out pretty good before my then boss came in and asked me if I had seen his wallet.

That’s when I clued in that the stranger – and we’d get strangers in the hall all the time – mostly guests of CKNW – I clued in that this stranger on the phone wasn’t really on his phone and it was a well planned ploy so nobody would talk to him.

He was never caught.

Hall policies never changed.
