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.
my crazy boss
i was going to work one day and my boss walked in and we was all just standing around and she got mad and fired us all later that day i went back and tried to get my job back so she gave it back to me and then fired me again for no reason. i was so mad.
late again
i was late for the seventh time so i got fired
fired for working
I had a manager at walmart that i guess felt that i made him look bad in the community and at work because of my good work and involvement with people and charities etc, well he had tried to get me to quit and fire me several times over the year but to no success, well finally he decided to fired me for working too much on schedules they approved and then offereing me up to 40 hours overtime to help unload trucks, needless to say he said i was fired for workign too many days , oh and i'm just letting my attorney handle it and anyways he already now has a very bad image in our community from how he has treated me and several other associates over the last year.
Well , it was my last day when i argued with my boss in a rude manner and my termination letter was on my table after 15 min
a piece of my mind
I worked at tyson fresh meats for about a year and a couple of months. And one day I was in a bad mood my supervisor and I always got along but that day I assume us both were not having a good day and she gave me a piece of her mind she todally snapped on me so I snapped back. I got sent to the superintendent's office and got fired for talking back to my supervisor. So basically I got the message if you don't have anything good to say don't say it all.
Everyone loves a clean-shaven rat
I had been working at a local Chuck E. Cheeses, My position was in the arcade section, but occasionaly each employee would be persuaded into jumping into the Chuck E costume, a 6 foot tall "hip" rat.
Anyhow upon my arrival to work, in full wardrobe, I had been taken out of my superior acting debut (as a Friendly Rat) walked in to the office and immediately questioned about some stuble on my face. that was it; it was all over. fired mere seconds later, never to return.
i had no idea
i got fired from my job at Burger King because i thougth it would be funny to come dressed as a chicken to my job ieven was walking and acting like a chicken when i got to work iguess it wasnt funny!!!
Terminate because of taking Company Money
I was a manager in a leader restaurant, because I was addicted with gambling, It was ruined my life. I feel so sorry for my self, I lost everything in life that I've dreamt of. I got terminated after the day I took a company money for almost 4000 dollars, I had co-operated by go to the head office of my company I worked and we have a talk, I had told them why I took the money and what reason I took it. I got terminate on that day, I volunteer to turn my self to the police station in Santamonica, I was arrested. They put me in jail for one whole night,it was my first and freaking time I've ever had. I look to myself and think look at you Santhana, A Smart and Full of Knowlegde Manager sleep in a jail. I was crying and feel so sorry about my future. Right now, my case not finish yet, I have to go back to the court on 01/22nd/2007. At least, I feel better cos PD told me, they won't put me to jail, the court will order
me to take probation, because I was co-operated with everything, they don't really beleive why I volunteer to take myself to the Police Station to get arrested. Most of the Crime, they try to run away, but not for me, I just feel I have to responsible for my case, and I did paid the company back. everything I did bad, I already solve. I write this story not about the money but I just want everybody knows that Gambling can make you nut and ruin your life and I just want to let the world knows so I feel better for my self. I know I am not gonna get a good job from today, but at least I paid back what I did and try to be a new man in a golden country.
Employee Harrassement
I was an employee at our Target store near the Del Amo Mall here in Torrance .

Anyway another store employee was bothering me while I was working in the womens dressing room all alone by myself .
I didnt have anyone to help me so I had to do something because my supervisor at the store wouldnt help me .

My Job coach was never there when I needed her .

The other store employees wouldnt help me .

So I got fired for doing something that I shouldnt have done .

A nerf ball..... It hurt this time!
My Fiance was working at that yucky store that begins with a W. Where everyone goofs off all the time by the way. It was a very slow night and he was picking a little nerf ball off of the floor and he tried to throw it into a shopping cart. Well he missed and an assistant manager saw and they fired him for not following store rules. I swear other people there including managers dont get fired for sexual harrasment and other things but throw a nerf ball and you are out of there.
