Gourmet Dog Treats
Right after my divorce, the only job I managed to get rather quickly was this new kiosk opening up in the mall, called "Just Dogs Gourmet" and all they sold was gourmet dog treats. Anyway, my 1st day there, my son was in his 1st day of preschool and got sick all over his clothes. The following day I got sick as well and there was no way for me to get in touch with my manager as the phones were not even hooked up yet. I even tried to e-mail him, in hopes he would get it. Well, the following day I was feeling better and went into work, worked the whole day, and as I was getting ready to leave, the manager asked to speak with me. He sat me down at a table in the food court and proceeded to fire me, because he didn't think I was reliable! WHAT A CROCK. I explained that he didn't give me a chance to prove myself. He just sat there and shook his head at me. I ended up calling him a jerk before storming out the mall doors. The
next day I brought up the clothes my son had puked
on in a bag and told my ex-manager that those were for him. I was walking out as he opened the bag and heard him get sick all over the counter!!! It was gross, but it was so rewarding!! That kiosk closed due to lack of sales about 2 months later! HA
So this 19yo kid starts working my store. A Speedway. Anyway, he was odd to begin with and I had heard stories about him saying strange things in front of customers. Last weekend I found out he was fired, because one of my managers caught on to him stealing cartons of cigarettes and found 4 behind the dumpster and 2 in his car. Not only do we have like 15 surveylance cameras in the store, but he was a sneaky little jerk lol! He apparently also stole money from the drawers to the tune of 2000USD! Hes going to jail! What a doofus.
Things To Do...
well one day i walked into a local grocery store and they offered me a job as a shelf stacker. i was low on money so i decided to have a go and said yes. 2 weeks later i got sick of the job and wanted to leave but couldnt get the courage to quit because the owner of the store was an old lady and she was really nice. anyways, so i thought of some ideas to get fired an done came up ... tickle the lady and so the next day i went up to her and started tickling she didnt laugh but i did and so i was the only one making noise in the store and she said FIRED!!
Oil Change Hell
Ok I worked as an oil change boy. I was 18. Started working the day I graduated high school. Worked there 1 1/2 years - never called off once. I was a HARD working employee trying to make this guy money. I had oppertunity to become manager but declined because I didn't want to be put on salary and working 75 hours a week. They decided to get rid of the 'teenage' look and highered in a bunch of guys that we all knew were going to replace us. So on a slow day I was pissed off. I was training my replacement. So since this guy didn't know anything I waited for it to get super busy. (It's just me + the new guy). I drain the customers oil, take off the filter and said screw it, I'm going to get breakfast. Have at it big guy. I walked out the door, (not clocking out - I decided a sit down meal would be nice). Afterwards I figure what the hell, I will just go home and watch some tv. The boss calls me asking if I was going to come back to work -
and I told him no. He had to leave his golf outing to
come teach the new guy - (which the owner doesn't know how to change oil). Moral: Don't make somebody train their replacement and expect them to care about their job anymore...

BAD HABIT
I was working as a maid in this gigantic house and the owners had a son. he was my age, 22 and still living with his parents...sad... i know. anyway, one thursday, he came up behind me and said, 'Truth or dare?" being confused, i said "what?" he said, "pick one, truth or dare?" being stupid i said "Dare" He said, "i dare you to go skinny dipping in our pool tonight. or else" I said, dumb-founded "or else what?!" "or else ill tell my parents that you stole jewlery from them. and who do you think they'll beleive?" at the time, money was short for me so i HAD to keep the job.i had no other choice! so that night, i went out to the pool, undressed totally, and got went in. Blaine (the son) said i had to stay in for 35 minutes. so i waited...about 30 minutes went by and all the sudden, i hear this splash into the water! it was the blaine's parents!!it was dark and i was in a shaded
spot in the pool so they couldn't see me unless
they looked underwater. i quietly watched them for about 30 seconds and then realized i had to get out before they noticed. so slowly, i got out, and got up right and with out thinking walked right into the moon light out of the shade! all the sudden i heard a voice that said "Mandy?!?! what are you doing?!?!?" and right when they said that, i turned around, to face them. then i thought, oh no...i forgot , i'm naked!!!!! and to make it even better, Blaine who started this mess walked out and he saw me to. they all saw ALL of me. the next day i was fired. The parents went off to work and i gathered my things, but right before i walked out the doors, Blaine said "hey they're gone now. you wanna go skinny dipping with me? you got a damn good butt, oh yeah,i saw you last night" and then i thought, what could possibly be worse! so i did!we had a very romantic evening and oddly enough, i started dating him and a year went by and we got married! very, very, bizzare, i know.
I worked at a toy store. I was on my break, I was bored so I decided to have some fun with the toys. So I took a few barbies out of their boxes and started to reinact the love scene from romeo and juliet. My boss came in at the exact wrong moment with a family that was interested in buying a few barbies for their daughter. After they saw me they didn't.
Fog Machine Galore
When I was 17 I got my first job at the local bowling alley. I worked part time, mostly on weekend nights, which is when they had "Glow N Bowl" at the front desk.
Lights shut off, black lights, disco balls, music comes on and younger kids come and bowl.
Anyways, One Saturday night it was dead as ever. Normally when its a dead night, my co worker Andy and I would bowl ourselves, taking turns and goofing off.
One night we decide to let the fog machine go (we do that once in a while for fun effects). He cranked it full blast to see how smokey we can get the 50 laned bowling alley. It got so bad we shut it off and had to evacuate everyone (about 15 people or so) out of the building because you could barely see. The fire alarm went off, of course. Fire department showed up, and it was a big mess. Yea..we got fired once the owner showed up.
My friends worked at a party story that sold ballons and other party favors and around halloween time costumes. They hated the job, and dared me to run into the store Grab a 200 dollar Darth Vader costume and run out the door and I did. As a joke i applied there and got hired! my boss who was a flat out jerk and hated me. I still can't tie a ballon (fat fingers) and she wanted me to tie up 350 of them, i lost 50 to flying around the store and 20 or so to popping, she came over called me a idiot and loaf. so I shot a ballon at her face like a rubber band got up on the counter scream she harrassed me and that she was secretly a nazi. I got fired and all my friends quit with me, we came back 2 days later in the costumes we had stolen (darth vader,cyclops, freddy and jason) from there (we stole alot) and destroyed the place the 4 of us knocked 75% of the stuff of the wall and when she called the police and told them it was us. My mom said we had all
been at our house all night (she hated her too).
She refused to give me my last pay check i called corporate and got her fired for with holding my pay check from me, harrasment, and insulting me.
This isn't a really big firing story or anything, but it's pretty funny. Once when me and my cousin were still little kids, we got a few other friends together and set up "shop", or a small lemonade stand that also sold small toys, and things like keychains. A lady came up and said we all looked cute in our little aprons, and my cousin's friend says " Well, we aint cute fatty, we're businessy-type people!" the lady storms off and my cousin is about to fire the girl when the girl starts crying, and wails out " i quit!" and ran into the house. want to know why? the "fatty" was my cousin's mom! we never set up shop with HER again!
so i brought my boyfriend to work and he was pretending that he didn't know me and like was totally checking me out and then he came up to me and started kissing me while i was gettin some coffee for an old lady and it spilled all over!! i got fired for being inappropriate during work hours! i didn't dump him though, because the job payed a really lil mount of money!
Fired From Pharmacy
i used to work at liss pharmacy as a stock boy. For physics finals, the school decided to take us to six flags where they assigned us rides and we had to calculate the velocity, force, and other physics stuff. i had someone cover for me, but he never showed up. I got fired because i did not show up even after i emphasized that i had finals and someone was supose to cover for me. he kept the job. (probably because he was the boss' son).
when i tried to get my job back, they told me that they don't hire guys because girls works more efficient. they hired few new stock boys who are boys not girls afterwards.
Well i got pissed at my boss [who treated me like a jerk and I was practically his slave and he being like 30 and me 19 hit ont me all the time] so one day before work I went to the pet store and filled his office with mice and roaches!!!I left him a note with my employee stuff telling him he was such a jerk and that i quit, also that he could go to hell.
I worked at this hotel as front desk manager and my boyfriend needed a place to stay. I suggested the hotel I worked at. Then the boss fired me because I was dating a guest. uhg
PetSmart is not very smart.
I have been working at PetSmart for 10 months.
3 months as Stock and 7 months as a Night Pet Care Associate.
I started working for the PetsHotel in Jan. 24th, 2008.
I worked the overnight shift. They made me full-time, gave me benefits, and then fired me soon after I got my benefits. They fired me for leaving the PetsHotel to go into the break room on my break. But I didnâ??t know I was setting off motion detectors every time as I left the PetsHotel. I wish they would have warned me or at least written me up...
Not a word from them. Well, not entirely true. They questioned me as they were going to fire me. Would have been nice if I knew I wasnâ??t allowed to go into the break room. They also accused me of causing damage to the womenâ??s bathroom. Apparently the toilet was broken and it flooded. There were also some notes left in the bathroom that they said matched my handwriting. Which seriously they should get the authorities involved that can analyze the handwriting or dust for prints to see who the real perpetrator instead of wrongfully accusing someone because you didnâ??t get your facts straight.
I loved my job, I had no reason to do such things. They gave me full-time because I was the hardest working night associate. Even when there was 114 dogs, I still busted my butt checking on the pets EVERY hour, clean the facility, prepare and give out food, walk the dogs and cleanup afterwards.
The PetsHotel doesnâ??t have its own break room and the fridge in the kitchen is not big enough to keep my food and drinks because it is filled with the petsâ?? wet food and snacks. It is just a mini-fridge. I had fun playing with all the cute dogs and cats.
I live in an apartment that does not allow dogs. So I really had fun with my job. I looked up other instances of PetSmart employees being wrongfully terminated, and there were lots of people speaking out. I think I may go apply for PetCo
So I was working as a courtesy clerk at this grocery store, and in my opinion for a 100 pound, 5'3 girl I was doing a pretty good pushing around carts, and bagging and I know I have good customer service skills. Well the manager that has the authority to fire and all that doesn't really pay attention to how well people work so when I called in and said I wouldn't be able to work for about 2 or 3 days because I was in the emergency room sick she said I was a liar and that I should never come back. I didn't even get to give her my doctor's note.
Stupid Idiots :(
i was working at a grocery store had been for a year one day i was stacking the fruit up and my boss said i was stacking wrong and she showed me how to do it but i always had stacked it that way and she had seen me do it that way thousands of times anyways her daughter came to work there she thought she could do anything she likes because its her moms shop she was 15 i was 23 and she was telling me what to do and that so one day i had enough then the boss called me into the backroom for a chat i was thinking what had i done then she starts saying ive been eating the fruit and veg from the shop which was so un true i said what makes you think this and she said some one saw you do it i was thinking that little cow lieing about me to her mom.. so i just got up took my apron and badge of and said you no what you can screw your job and take it up your arse then as i walked out the daughter had a huge obvious smirk on her face so i got the closest
thing to hand which had to be a oranges and
started throwing loads at her and just walk out her and the stupid mom where gob smack i got a better job in an office 2 weeks after :)
Duck and Cover!
My boss use to scream about everything. In the Three years of working at the firm I don't think I had ever heard the boss talk to the workers in the office like people and in a pitch that couldn't shatter glass.
Sure I had my bouts with the boss but generally I liked to keep my head down smile, nod and then mumble hatred to myself as I walked off. Then at the beginning of the year it got worseâ?¦
From the moment you walked into the office till the time you left, all you could hear was this ridiculous screeching. Employees left, right and centre where getting yelled at from a dizzy height.
Then day after day it was my turn, everywhere I went I had this barbarians voice in my ear.
Finally, I just couldnâ??t take it anymore
She was laying into me about a report that was done incorrectly because she all of sudden decided to change the format without letting anyone and wanted to know why is hadnâ??t been done the way SHE wanted it,
"DONâ??T LOOK AT ME IN THAT TONE OF VOICE! AM I JUST TALKING TO MYSELF?! NO ONE LISTENS TO ME AROUND HEREâ?¦
It was then I turned and at the same pitch said,
"THE REASON NO ONES LISTENING IS BECAUSE THEY'VE ALL GONE DEAF FROM YOU SCREAMING IN THEIR EARS FOR THE LAST THREE YEARSâ?¦"
Yeah thing are generally quieter these daysâ?¦
I still chuckle to myself when I think about it
