Each year brings with it plenty of examples of employees caught doing dumb things while on the job, and 2012 was no exception. From the auto-dealership worker who was accused of faking her own kidnapping to the small-town clerk who stole $53 million from taxpayers to the teacher who allegedly ordered her students to bully another child, workers proved yet again that there's no shortage of ingenuity when it comes to behaving stupidly.

What's more, advances in technology mean that many more such examples are being caught on video -- whether by cameras on cell phones or through surveillance -- and increasingly winding up on social media sites, such as Facebook and YouTube, or shared with the media.
