crisco disco music
I was fourteen at the time and I used to run to the store for the little ol lady down the street and she had asked me to bring her CD's and food items often and she was from burma and still had a very strong accent and she said crisco and I misunderstood her words and came back with twinkies a coke and a greatest hits disco CD and the same day her cat died and she wanted to bake a pie and she got pissed and didnt get any money and i had to get my parents to get her to pay me back and she never did but at least I got to return the CD. And guess what? Apparently she killed her self 5 months ago with a sawed off shot gun in her uncles cabin ( i could tell she was mentally destressed but not to this extent).
The boss from hell
so i work my ass off for this woman day in day out. but she is never satisfied. she was the devil, true story. so one day she calls me in her office and says shes letting me go but i can finish the rest of the day. when i ask what the problem is she was like your not on time enough. i looked at her and said not on time. so coming in for my shift ten min. early is not on time? she looked at me and said well you called in sick yesterday. i looked at her astonished, because i was in the hospitial, you stupid jerk. You never liked me in the fisrt place and seeing as you have the audacity to act like a two year old instead of a boss i will not finish the rest of the day. you can sit on it and rotate. That was a bad day .
knowing when 2 much is enough
Well my friend valerie and i were workign togehter at burger king hoping that we would get free stuff at work and go home happy. Well it didn't really work that way and we ended up having half priced instead of free. So valerie got really mad and thought that revenge would be a good way to start. While i was working the cash register she was working the onion ring machine, she put so much in it that when they came out they looked all bad. I took the blame for it since i was the cash register person all the customers came down hard on me with their gross half done onion rings in their hands. The manager finally came out adn told them that they could have their money back since the machine wouldn't work. Valerie was fired ina second and she had to pay for another onion ring machine....
I workjed at pizza hut!
and Í was always late so before I could go to work I cold not eat because i would get there later!and when I'm at work I'd always eat!pizaaaa so before The pizza's where delivered half of it was gone!1
Ok i was working at a public library.My boss was and lady.I was talking and she said i was talking too loud.She fired me for talking too loud before i left i knocked down every book shelf they had.
I worked as a custodian at the golf course. I got let go suddenly and without warning. I asked my supervisor why and she said that the golf course superintendant claimed that I argued with him about when I take my breaks. Total lie! Anyways I still got a job, just elswhere on post. I call my best friend and rant about the lies and said I might beat his face in. The twerp played it for the superintendant, and I got fired from my new job before it even started.
Happy New Year
I called in on New Years because I had a hangover. What made it worse was the fact that they were going to fire me anyway because I threw pizza at some lady for tipping me only 5 cents 2 days prior.
Nice boss...
So I worked at the Home Depot call center. I was a customer service rep. One day my car got broken into, the passenger side window was broken, and my purse was stolen with everything in it. I called into work, about a week later they fired me. I even offered to show the police report, but they just booted me out of there.
John Deere Landscapes
I worked at John Deere Landscapes for 4 months till I was brutally fired. I was hired as a warehouse specialist but my boss discovered that I was a talented sales person. He had me cold-call over 70 potential customers in hopes for them to come to us with their business. I was pretty successful and I had some huge clients coming in.

To make a long story short. My boss ended up finding a way to fire me so he could get the credit (and the bonus)for making those calls. In fact, he was required to make all those calls but pawned it off on me, just to fire me and get the glory!

He said I was fired because of my insubordination in a situation where he told me I could have a Friday off to see my girlfriend. But on the prior Wed, he told me I couldn't go anymore. With no reason. That Friday he actually made me stay 2 hours late and out of frustration I ended up delivering the wrong shipment to the wrong customer. He set me up for failure and fired me.

we dont need you
i worked at and ice cream shop and my employee played a trick on another employee. only the trick backfired onto himself in which ice cream fell from the ceiling and hot fudge came with it. i had to fire him on the spot but it was cool.
bully boss
After a year working at the butcher i had enough of my loud mouth boss that told me to do everything. So one day after cleaning one of the big frigde i ask her to come and have a look if it was clean as she stepped into the frigde and walked to the back i shut the door and sliped a bar downthe lock so she couldn't get out. I then went and to the other people i worked with and told them i was going home, later that day i got a phone call from a person who worked there he said that it took 3 hours to get her out as every one went for their lunch and he told me i was sacked.
False Time Card
I was fired once for "fudging" my time card and making it seem like I worked hours that I didn't. My boss dragged me into his office and yelled out a classic "YOU'RE FIRED!!" so that the entire office could hear it. I thought that only happened in cartoons or in movies, but I guess I was wrong. It was very embarassing.
Pizza Guy
I was delivering pizzas for about 8 months and was just tired of doing for that long. At the time, I was aggravated over being pushed around a lot by people that I had been coming in contact with lately. So I told myself that I wasn't going to put up with it anymore. So I guess the little thing set me off.

One night, someone ordered a pizza and when I knocked on the door, they never showed up. So I left the food outside on the doorstep. Not the smartest thing to do as I understand it.

So I guess word of what I did got back to my boss. But I guess it didn't help that a few before that, I was arrested while on the job for some unpaid parking tickets. This happened while I was en route to delivering to someone's house, and I had to leave my car on the side of the road with about $75 worth of food in the trunk.

Not my finest moment, but I laugh about it now.
Great Ameica
During the summer, when I was 17 years old, I was working at the Outback Shack restaurant in Great America. One day I was carrying a box full of drinks and I fell. I spilled the drinks and they were no good anymore. My supervisor came in and yelled at me and said that I was fired. That was that and I never worked there ever again.
Oh, Baby!
I was working security at a downtown mall with my boyfriend and his best friend. We had found out that I was pregnant in early Sept, I was written up 7 times for utterly ridiculous stuff (taking too many bathroom/snack breaks, not taking it when people pushed my pregnancy buttons on purpose) basically they thought that my pregnancy symptoms were not allowing me perform properly. So, about 4-5 weeks after we find out, I was let go. The kicker is, that not only was I fired, but my boyfriend AND his friend was fired!
I was only trying to help.
A few years ago, I was working for a Medical Transcription Company (listening to doctors' recordings and typing what they say). Prior to working for this particular company, I had worked for a large Internal Medicine practice called ICP. Dave, my boss at the time of this story, wanted so badly to get a contract with ICP, and I thought I might be able to help him by setting up a meeting with Dave and the office manager from ICP (Kevin). So I sent the office manager from ICP (Kevin) a personal fax inviting him to an event that I was also trying to get Dave to attend. In a sense, I was trying to hook them up like they do in the TV sitcoms. Anyway, it backfired on me because my personal fax came through on a paper that had of our biggest client's letterhead. It apparently looked like a medical letter from them, but it was a personal letter from me. One of the girls at ICP called my boss and squealed on me (She was my arch enemy
when I worked at ICP) notifying him that I sent her boss a personal letter that came through on the letter head of one of the doctor's offices who was our biggest client. My boss, Dave, called me on the spot and said, "Joanne, I can't believe you did that. I'm going to have to fire you. But you can come back again in 6 months to work." (Yeah, like I was going to come back to work for a guy who fires me for using the fax machine in an attempt to help him gain business. It was a blessing in disguise because Dave was a total jerk anyway.
The Witch
I had been working at "Subway" for almost 2years when my boss quit. Well after she quit I was the longest employee. so the company put me as the temporary manger. for three months I ran that store, I knew everything about and how to do it all. well they finally found some one to be the manger. well this lady found out that I was the one that would be training her, she never mad a sub ever in her life. she found out that I was the one that was in charge and everyone that worked there listened to me. she played it out to be really nice and cool. well one day I needed to take off and she didn?t give me the day off so I had some one else come in for me. later that night when I was done with the other stuff I needed to deal with I went to the store to check on everything. Let me first say that the next day I was supposed to be there at 8am, and work all day long till 9pm. I went into the store and saw two people there, my new manger and the guy
that I had come in for me. right then she fired me. no reasoning, all she said top me was "You lying little B****, get out of my store and don't ever come back." I looked at her and corrected her that I wasn't the b****, and that she was. and told her that she'll never be able to run that store like I did. with in the following two weeks, everyone quit on her. and the third week she quit.
