The gossiping manager
ok so i was working at a Halloween store and my manager was always talking bad about everyone who worked there and one day she started talking about one of my friends and i told my friend and he called her out on it and she got pissed at me and started yelling at me in front of everyone thinking that because she was older than me and my manager that i wouldn't yell back and lets just say she was wrong anyways she clocked me out early and sent me home and when i left she told everyone that i was lying and that she never said any of that stuff and she bought everyone pop in an attempt to get them on her side needless to say her boss found out and she was fired a few days later.
He dug himself into a hole
I own an excavating company. We do large earthmoving projects and underground utilities. One of my workers was to back a very large articulating dump truck close to a 25 foot deep hole for loading. He got into the truck, turned on the radio and off he went. He could not hear the spotter backing him up. When I looked up, he had backed the truck right into the hole. All that could be seen was the very tip of the truck. Needless to say, he went home early, I'm sure he had to change his shorts;).
She got hers in the end
I used to work at Sears in the Women's Department while I was going to school. When I was hired, I told my manager I was in school and gave her my schedule. I wrote the schedule in three different books so I wouldn't get scheduled while I was supposed to be in class. Well, the manager would schedule me either right after I had class and yell when I was late or schedule me during a class. I finally complained to one of the assistant store managers and he offered to move me to Kids, since the manager there loved me. My current manager stopped that in the tracks, siting the times I had been late (because she had scheduled me without enough time to drive from school to work) So I put in for a Sunday off so I could go to a musuem for my art 101 class. (I had a paper due that week). It happened to fall on an employee appreciation sale. My mom had seen an entertainment center she wanted and sent me to pick it up for her. My manager
saw me and asked why I was there when I had asked
off. She fired me on the spot and demanded my key card. I threw the damn thing away, cleaned out my locker, and left. When upper management found out that she had not followed the proper firing procedures, they fired her! They asked me to come back but I had gotten a better job that worked around my school schedule.
Hot Dog!
I used to work as a hot dog jockey at a Famous Hot Dog Joint. I had been there for about 6 months, when in walked my ex-boyfriend with the girl that he cheated on me with. They were laughing and giggling and all over each other while I had to take their order. Eww... Anyways, when it was time to bag the order, I decided to lick her corndogs before I put them in to the packages. I thought it was freakin hilarious. And she never noticed...she scarfed those wieners. Unfortunately, my boss didn't think it was so funny.
Dunananana Batman!
Well, I worked in a costume store. I got bored so one day I decided to dress up as Batman. I went outside as Batman, and sang the theme song just as my boss was walking in. I was fired but it was soo much fun!
Fired for vacation
ok, so, i was working at the ice cream place near my house one summer, and made it perfectly clear to my boss that i would be on vaca for a week and that another kid was covering my shifts. Well, when the kid didn't come in for my shifts, the boss called me and told me to get my butt to work...too bad i was 600 miles away. SO, he fired me for not coming.
Christmas Party
Well, we're having the company Christmas party at the bowling alley i worked for. It's a real loose atmosphere around there, we were all like family. Well anyway let me first state that at the bowling alley there's (lets say his name is) "shawn" who is the main boss and (let's say) "miguel" who is the one below him. Well anywho "shawn" the main boss also coached a college bowling league so he was out of town at the time of the Christmas party. Now here's where the fun begins. I go into the bar to talk to "miguel" and he bets me 20 bucks to go "streaking" in only my boxers. So keep in mind "shawn" is gone so "miguel" is first in charge. That in mind I take the bet. Well I do it and the security guard gets mad and almost tackles me. He calls "shawn" and "shawn" fires me.
It's the mustard's fault!!
ok i was serving the people, and when i got to a family at dinner they kept changing their order over and over again. They kept the order of mustard and when i brought them their food, they changed their order again!!! i have anger problems so i squirted the mustard all over the floor and screamed. i got fired after that.
Bad DJ
The bowling alley had unexperienced DJs for a short time. One of the DJs just walked out on the job. Just his luck, an experienced DJ was sent to check on him... He comes back an hour later and The experienced one calls their boss, and the next thing you know, the experienced one is DJing and the just-fired one is leaving.
Fired for a hit and run
I was working at Dominos Pizza as a delivery boy, right. And one time I was in the mood for a smoothie. So as i was gonna pull into a parking space, this totally hot girl passed in front of my view and as I stared at her, I accidentally clipped this parked car. Since I didn't want to get a ticket, or be late for work, I jetted outta there! Not even a month later, thanks to parking survellaince, I was giving the dreaded ticket. So I went to court and plead guilty, for I totally was. Another month later my boss said, "Don't clock in I have to talk to you." So he asked, "Do you have a hit and run on your record?" I explained to him the situtaion, but it didn't matter because it is company protocol. Sucks too, I was making some bank there.
V-day Quitter
On Valentines day I had a friend that worked at an ice cream shop, and she didn't like her job any more, so she sent them a dozen roses with a note that said "I Quit."
So I worked at Boston Market and they gave me 4 hours one week. I decide its time to go find another job. I interview for a position and get it 2 hours before my shift starts at Boston Market. I decide to show up for my shift in the clothes interviewed in and tell my manager I quit in person. Well since I was one of the people who served food they were short staff and my manager had to start serving people food. To make things better I went and ordered food and sat and ate in the dining room watching my manager serve orders for about a half hour.
oh no not again
i was working at mcdonalds and i saw some chips that were left so i ate some while they werent looking but my boss saw me and i was.....FIRED!!!!! I WAS SO BUMMED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Fired Over Bread
I worked at a French resturant and my co-worker had a family. They finished all the bread and then asked the boss for more bread. My boss thought that she never gave them bread. He was so mad he fired her over bread! The family tried to explain they just wanted more but the boss still fired her.
Im so so sorry
well i had just started a new job at a hospital ... Which i had always wanted to work at. I did such a
Good job on my first day .. My boss insisted i come in && do some extra hours the following nite ... Which just
Happened to be the same day && time "i love new york" comes on .. .I went in but of course decided i
Would watch tv in one of my favorite patients room ... Halfway through the show i couldnt understand why i kept hearing
A beeping sound.. Come to find out the person who's room i was in was losing blood pressure just as the show ended .,..
I saved their life... But was still fired quicker than you can say "i love new york"
Extra Cash
My friend used to charge everyone an extra dollar for their meals when he worked at mickey D's. He got fired. Then they hired him again the next week. But he did it again, so they fired him again.
Chocolate-covered popcorn
My ex co-worker, Katie, got fired because we were working at a movie theater and she thought it'd be fun to try to make chocolate covered popcorn by dumping a bag of m&m's into the popper lol and the boss got PISSED.
As if I am that dumb!!
I landed a new job as a receptionist at a family owned company. On my first day at the job, I was asked to print a document, so I pressed print, and a screen came up with about 10 different printers to choose from, so I asked the girl who was trainig me (the boss's daughter) which printer to print from. About an hour later the boss came into the office, and in front of everyone told me that I am not suitable for the job (I had only been there for a few hours) I thought he was joking, because I hadnt even done any work yet, so how would he know if I was suitable or not) and he said to me 'I am being serious you are not suitable, I will pay you out for the week and you dont have to come back again'. Then I asked him why, and he said that he heard I dont even know how to print a document. I mean, come on. I am now in a job that pays almost double what that job was paying, and this job is a much higher level. His stupid daughter obviously
didnt like me!!
Majority Rules
I used to work as a cook at the local Pizza hut and all of us who worked there were really close knit friends after a while. Then one day we got a new general manager who was a bit... quirky. He insisted that everything be done in a certain order, even if it was against how we'd been trained.. and his hands shook CONSTANTLY. Naturally it wasn't too long till we questioned his sanity or soberness. One of the other cooks, Santi, stood up for Pizza hut policy of not giving out a free meal to everyone who calls with a slight question or whatever. Well... Mr. Manager didn't like that and fired him. Soon after the rest of us were rescheduled to cover his hours.... then the other cook quit.... then the girls who answered the phone... then the counter...

The final day I worked at the store there were three of us on the payroll. I was scheduled for a double shift 5/7 days that week and besides the manager the other guy didn't speak much english. When I quit the manager looked at me with tears in his eyes... and when I walked out the door the entirety of the former staff was there to give me a high five, and the Region General Manager was with them.

It doesn't matter if you're sick ...
I had health problems for about 5 years - I needed to get my gall bladder removed. Because of my health problems it wasn't unheard of that I would need a day off during the week because of excruciating pain in my mid-drift area. I ended up in the hospital for an emergency operation, and they kept me there for a week. A month or so after I got back from the hospital I was told I took too much time off from work, and they didn't believe I'd been in the hospital; they thought I may have even fabricated the hospital documentation!!! ... I collected unemployment as long as I could :0)
