my friend was working at a bar and grill and he was ask to clean the grill one day it was his first time cleaning the grill and when he seen it he notice that there was about a months worth of grease on the grill and so after Brian finished cleaning the grill the boss looked at it and told Brian that he was fired for scratching up his only grill, but the grill was not scratched its just that the boss hasn't seen his grill cleaned so long that when Brian got most of the grease off of the grill it seemed to be scratched in his eyes.
a safe way to earn a living
I was working the night shift at safeway in Bearwood Birmingham, and really wasn't enjoying the job or the unsociable hours. I'd also just split up with my girlfriend so I was feelin a bit down and really didnt wanna go back to the place. The only wayI could think of to never have to go back there again was to tell my parents the other members of staff were bullying me, making me do disgusting jobs and hurling abuse my way. I said I was never going back and my parents accepted it, i then proceeded to go out for the night thinking the issue had been resolved. I got back at 3am and my dad had a face like thunder, apparently he went down to Safeway and grabbed the manager up against the wall and was threatening all the staff!! whoops! Never had to go back there tho wahey!
i got fired because my boss didnt like the fact that i couldnt come in early for work because my sister was in the hospital. even though another employee can take the entire day off to see her brother who drove drunk and in the hospital!!!
Ok too make a long story short that morning i woke up late and didnt have time to brush my teeth. I went to work and it was like 7 am so by the time i get to work my boss asks my why im late and then i tell him. I guess he smelled my breath and said that i had to be let go because he will not be represented by someone who doesnt brush their teeth.
Drunk or just another hangover
I was drunk the night before so I had my friend take me to work. I had a few drinks on the way there because I had previously came up with the idea to quit. My boss was cruel to everyone especially me. I knew that the boss liked me he had just a bad way of showing it. He would have had to have a good reason to fire me. So I had to be drunk and crazy. I often don't drink as much as I did but this was a matter or eat or be eaten. So I walked in to find the boss had decided to give me the promotion I had wanted since I got married. Well, when I told my wife just what had happended she just bust out laughing. So I had to tell someone about how I was fired from my great new job, before I even started!
So i was working in a fast food place and I got fired for forgetting to flush the toilet.
I worked at a fast food restaurant that served breakfast, lunch, & dinner. Rather than just being open to work one shift. I told the manager I will work ANY hours that is available to make more money. So I often did 3 morning shifts and 2 evening shifts each week. It was never steady.
My hours were all jacked up. Sometimes I would work 4 hours, 5.5 Hours, ooooh and if I was really lucky I was able to work a 6 hour shift without being sent home early due to lack of sales. Not by choice but when it "slowed down" I was the first to go home!
To make a long story short I was scheduled for 6 O'clock AM one day but I arrived at 6 O'clock PM it really was an honest mistake. When I jotted down my schedule I must have made a mistake. I didn't even get a WARNING just: YOUR FIRED! I cried my eyes out and have been a 26 y/o female living with my parents ever since. I can't quite afford an apartment yet.
I bit her
This is honestly the stupidest thing that has ever happened to me. I worked in a clothing store and I was playing around with a co-worker and i bit her lightly playing around. we are both females so it's not like I was trying to make some sort of move on her. Well, she felt uncomfortable and instead of confronting me she went and told the manager who she is close with. I got fired for "misconduct".
The Babysitting Accident
One day i was watching an 8 year old and an 8 month year old. I sat them down on the couch and the younger baby fell off the couch and smashed his head against the floor. When the mother came home, the 8 year old told his mom what happened and I started laughing even though it wasn't funny. Afterwards, she cursed me out and told me to go home and never come back. Till this day, i still laugh about what happened that day!
i was working in a marverick store one morning, and our big head honcho guy makes his routine visit. well i am stocking all the frieght,( breaking down boxes and all). i could break down this certain kind of box, that the bagged jerky came in, very easily. so i thought i would jump onto one at a time and smash it. lol. needless to say, on my way back down the box slid out from under me, and my butt landed on the concrete floor right in front of the district manager.
just plain wierd
i was going to be a stable hand at a horse barn, and, at the time, i wasnt used to working with earshy horses, so i was leading a ear-shy horse to the round pen and i saw he had a fly so i reached up and brushed the fly away. well, the horse freaked out and got lose and galloped all over the place, i finly cot him but my boss fired me just for that one mistake!
I GOT FIRED
WELL I GOT FIRED B/C I CAME TO WORK LATE LIKE ABOUT 2 HOURS LATE HAHA
This is what happened. You see, I was a secretary and my boss treated me so low that I couldn't take it anymore. So, I ask my friend for advice on how to get fired. She says 'Spill some coffee on his groin.' So that morning, I went into his office and spilled the extra-hot coffee all over his groin. I waited for his reaction. In my mind I was like ' YES! THIS IS IT!' But boy was I wrong. He didn't fire me. There was no answer. He jsut sent me away to get him a new pair of trousers. Damn! I was upset. So, I went back to my friend and she asked me,' Why don't you just quit?' But you see, I couldn't do that, because...I just couldn't. I need revenge. A few days later, I was in my office when I got a call from my boss's wife. She left a message telling to inform him that his yearly cut for his wig was today. Wig?! PERFECT!!!!!! Later on, I walked into my boss's room with a camera hidden in my pocket. I charged towards him and ripped off his wig
and quickly took a picture.
Immediately after that I ran home. I went on my computer and I upload the pic. I sent it to everyone in the office. The next day, I printed copy of the picture was posted on every wall of the building. And guess what? My plan worked!! And now I'm at home, jobless...yay!
I was planning on getting married on a Saturday coming up. I asked for the day off work but my boss said no. So rather than changing anything, I called off sick. I was told to either come in to work or I would be fired. I was fired.
I was coming back from my lunch break in my car and it was raining. the parkling lot was full so i had to park in the grass parking. well i thought it would be cool to drift/slide my car in to the spot. well i cut the wheel to turn but i just kept sliding staight and i slid right into an empty oil tank. It had a huge dent in it. so yea i got fired for that.
I was on my way to the office when i saw my friend push over a water bottle. our boss came and said he saw me do it . and he fired me cuase my area was the wetest.
don't work for benson box ever
i was doing a lot of bending over so i asked the boss for some equipment that we use to lift pallets so my back does not ache as bad and i can work better but he straight away said i didn't hurt my back in his building and said that bending over repetedly wouldn't harm my back at all the next day i recived a phone call saying that i wasn't needed for work at benson box
Thats so dumb...
I called to ask a personal day. My Boss said okay,so I did. Then, next day at work, he asked,'Where were you yesterday?' Then I told him that he said I could take a personal day off.
'well, I dont thin so. I think youre makin me think I dont remember what I said.YOURE FIRED!!!!GET OUTTA HERE!!!!!
i worked at a water park in nj for the summer to make some quick money. the business was family owned and operated so everyone was against me pretty much when something went wrong. so one moring i drove to work with 5 of my friends in the car and we were all drunk. so then we continued to go down the water slides until they sent people after us. ha they found out it was me and told me never to come back.
Personal Phone Calls
I once had a job that required me to be on the phone for a certain amount of time everyday making sales calls. I also had a lot of work to do off the phone. In order to meet my phone time quota I found a few numbers that would go into voicemail systems and not hang up on me. That way I could leave my desk and go do other work and still accumulate minutes towards my required phone time. I kept this up for six months. Once the boss discovered that I was getting a lot of my phone time from a few numbers, he called them. When he got the voicemail systems, he realized that I had found a way to cheat the system, so he fired me for making personal phone calls.
