Fired for following the Rules
I was a waitress a TGIFridays for about nine months. I was a loyal, honest, hard-working employee who was never in any trouble of any sort. One VERY VERY slow night- a very elderly woman and her adult daughter came in and ordered an alcoholic drink from me. After I brought it out the daughter spoke to my manager and I soon found out that these two were secret shoppers (people who are hired to check up on chains and report back to the 'mother' company). The next day i was fired for not ID-ing the woman! Our rule is to card those who look under forty and seeing that this lady was obviously over forty I abided by the rule....and was fired. Even though I did what was I was taught, the manager basically wanted to cover his butt so he wouldn't get in trouble with HIS manager....uuuuuh.
I had been the receptionist for a general contractor for almost 2 years. For Christmas I got a bonus and in November had received a pretty descent raise. So in January when I was called into my bosses office I was not alarmed. The next thing I know, he states "We're making a change." I had absolutely no idea what was going on. I asked questions and he answered with the same...."We're making a change!" I collected my things and was escorted to my car. I couldn't believe it. Was I being canned so they could hire a young blond, or someone in the family....I mean what in the world was "making a change"? It's been about 10 years since this happened and I sometimes I still wonder what the real story was with that one?!?!
OH, Nissan Nissan Nissan....
Well, i starting working at Nissan Motor Acceptance Corp in Irving TX around July of 06 (by the way, i was 18). It was at the insurance dept of the corp taking calls from customers when they have been in accidents and from insurance comp to do total loss reports. Any way they hired me on a temp to perm position and they needed someone who was bilingual because that dept didn't have one, well i gave one hell of a interview speech (it was all true) about me and i was hired. I believe i had the most responsibility because i took english calls when ever they would come in but also any other rep who would get a spanish call, they would transfer to me, so basically they can go 30 min with out a call but i would ALWAYS be on the phone!! and i had to do numerous other tasks around the office and i had an hour lunch and when i would come back i had about 15 - 20 spanish cust to call back!! Mind you i was the ONLY spanish rep there. Any way
one of my jobs was to seal certified letters to cust about repos i guess and it was everyday that i had to do some like every body else and they HAD to go out the same day by 3:00, it was a MUST!. By this time i had been working there for 3 months and there was this one monday morning where i was more overloaded then i had ever been, around the time they pass out the certified letters i didnt realize they had givin me any because i was tied up. So around 4:00 it started to slow down and thats when i looked over and realized that i had about 40 certs on my desk. Well i immedietly went over to one of my ser reps and told them the problem. The next day i come in and my boss comes over really gingerly like if nothing were wrong and told me that my temp agency downstairs wanted to see me. I was never under the impression that anything was wrong so i went down with confidence. The moment i sat down at Amy's desk, she says "Well, (boss name) wants to let you go." I was in total disbelief and so was she.
..after about 5 min, when it actually hit me, i started to cry because i started thinking that i was going to have to live on the street because my boyfriend and i were not going to be able to survive on his paycheck, but i made things work and we are still living off his check but i try to do little things here and there to make a little extra money.
We All Makes Some Mistakes
Well My friends and I needed money and needed it quick, So i got this job translating things for my boss. My boss was German so i just used daily resources since he preffered human contact for translation. Anyway this one guy stepped in and he was a metaphors kind of Idiom guy then he told my boss "I've had my eye on you for a while" I translated and my boss looked Skeptical then nodded and looked shifty eyed. Then the convo got boring and I spiced it up with some Idioms .. Bad idea My boss went insane and shouted. "HOW CAN I BE STUMPED?!!? SO I LOOK LIKE A TREE?" Then he just kept shouting and i justed looked shorter and shorter :/ Finally My Boss asked "Wheres that eye hes had on me" Then i Luaghed and fell of my chair laughing... Then got Fired for insolence -.-.
When i got my very first job working for the littlewoods catalogue company i was only 17 and my supervisor was very hard on me because we had to meet targets that were nearly impossible to meet, i had been working there for about 4 weeks and one day my supervisor said to me get your stuff your going home and i said why so she said she wachted me run through 5 ilses and then she said she seen me go for my dinner 10 mins early so i've lost it and threw tv-video combi (in the box) towards her and nearly broken her leg i got arrested and everything for it.
Well i used to work at a daycare and one day i went to work i had only gotten a few hours of sleep the night before so im sitting in a rocking chair rocking a kid to sleep and the next thing i know my supervisor is waking me up and she said i was fired i was so embarresed for myself and the children i was supposed to be watching.
Well, when I was younger I used to be a caddie at a nice country club. As a caddie, obviously, it was my job to carrie the golfers clubs, bag, and so on. I was still a newer caddie so I found my self struggling to make it through a single round. On this particular day it was a 27 hole tournament. I made it through the first 18 holes fine but the problem came around hole 20. My back was starting to become quite painful and I was trudging along head down not paying much attention. Well, this particular hole was a par three in which you had to take a rounded trip to make it around a pond to reach the green. So as I'm starting to make the trip around the pond my back continues to ache. So I trudge along head down simply trying to ignore the pain. However, I misjudged the placement of the pond and I suddenly found myself trying to balance myself as to not fall into the pond. But, the heavy golf bag weighed me down and took me and all my golphers
goods into the pond. Well as a young worker that was where I learned all the choice swear words, thanks to my golfer, for my vocabulary. The golfer quicly took his soaking bag and walked away yelling at me as he went "Go home you little piece of %#^% because I ain't *&^%*& paying you" So I went back to the caddie shack and told the caddie master the whole story. He simply laughed and told me to go home because I wasn't built for a caddie. Thinking about it now I should have gotten paid for the first 20 holes but ehh I'm sure the golfers bag smelled like *%&$ the rest of the day.
How to get fired on your first day of work......
I have only ever been fired from one job, and amazingly it happened on my first day. Impossible, you say? No my friend, easy as pie. For you see, after being hired to said job and scheduling my first day of work, I promptly forgot about the job and didn't show up for that first day. About an hour after I was supposed to be there, I got the call.
When I was coming to my work on january 3rd, and I put the bag of fire crackers by a hot oven and they blew up!
This guy at my work was always daring everyone to do stuff for a dollar. like touching the stove, of licking the floor and no one ever did any of it. One day he dared me to drink Tabasco Sauce right out of the bottle for 5 seconds. At first I was like NO but then he just kept buggin me about it so i did it. I Puked all over and was fired.
Sesame Street on Ice?
In December of 1991 the company I formerly worked for sponsored a bus trip to a Minnesota Timberwolves game.It was the fourth quarter and the Wolves were losing as was usually the case in the early years.Myself and a few employees were expressing our displeasure with how the game was going. A gentleman 3 rows behind us yells "Hey watch your language down there" I responded with "This isn't Sesame Street on Ice, you jerk"..He came down 3 rows and pushed me over a few rows of seats,my buddy coldcocked him and the brewhaha was on.We were removed by security rather quickly.Come monday at work everything seemed normal til i seen the guy who was at the game walking towards me with a huge shiner.He says to me.."Son..there's a cab waiting for you out front". The guy ended up being the plant supervisors son. Oops..best thing that ever happened to me though..2 months later i joined the Army and have been sober for

I worked the night shift form about 5pm to 5 am. i had been dating one of the painters who also worked there when he was fired. a few months after being fired i had broken up with him because he was a dead beat jerk. one night while at work, he showed up drunk and it took me several hours to get him to leave. the next day when i showed up to work i was immediately fired. i had no idea that anyone even knew he was there the night before until i saw that he had spray painted his name across all of the walls in bright red paint saying "BUD WAS HERE".
I was a tv repair man until one day when a wealthy family called me up to repair their widescreen tv. When I got over there I looked at the tv and saw that the tv was just unplugged so i reached over to plug it into the outlet. I pulled a little too hard and the tv fell over. Luckily nobody got hurt.

My First Job was at McDonalds. I am a normal teenager and was looking for a small job. I usually would go to McDonalds with my friends so i thought i would work there so we can get cheap deals and maybe get them some free meals. So when i show up for my first day on the job i have to unload and put away the boxes from the delivery truck. I was putting the raw chicken mcNuggets in the freezer and i saw an open box of them. They were all BLUE! I went straight to my boss and asked him why they were blue. He responded that thats how they are when they are frozen. So I decided that i would tell everyone i know including many of my friends from high school that the "all white meat" chicken nuggets arrived blue. Many of my friends were creeped out and they decided to stop eating at our McDonalds. My boss was confused why there was not as many teenage customers as there usually were. He called to his office and questioned me about this.
I told him that all my

I worked for a horse barn next door to me. My one job was to pick the weeds from around a sand field. When I would be done with one end, the other would be filled with weeds. I ended up asking for more help and asked 4 other friends to help. So instead of paying for one, he paid for 5 and told me to never come back.

Keep your pregnancy a secret....
I was working at a good job for about 9 months with no problems... I found out I was pregnant after I was 5 weeks and told my job right away... after that my manager made my life hell... she searched through my desk for things I did wrong and checked my emails. She even double checked my phone calls to see what I was saying to customers... 3 more months went on and I was so frustrated, I confided in one of my work "friends" that I wanted to quit because of the stress but I couldnt because I was showing and couldnt get a job anywhere else... 2 days later I had a scheduled doctors appt and arrived at work at 11 am. I was called into the my managers office and was told I wasnt a good fit for the company because I told someone I was unhappy there. I think it was because of my pregnancy... well, sucks for them... my lawyer is in talks with thier lawyer now... wrongful termination and pregnancy discrimination... hahaha!
