How I lost my job at Rapid Rooter
I was let go from Rapid Rooter in Sacramento for reporting someone else for not doing their job. The bosses turned around, decided I had created a hostile work environment, let me go, and are now contesting my unemployment. The other employee who actually created the problem still has her job and is still doing the same thing,
Responsible Service Laws got me FIRED!!
I was a bar manager for a year, and obviously had done my Responsible service of alcohol course, paid for by my boss. I was fired for a dispute because i refused to let my bar serve a man who could barely stand up and was being so loud, regulars were leaving. being a casual employee despite my full time hours, they took the 1 week old club manager's word he was sober, despite my 4 witnesses and fired me.
The so-called mobster
I worked at a diner/bar. I was seventeen years old, and it was my first job.I worked really hard and i would close the restruant at night. There was a new employee that showed up a month after i started. All of a sudden money started to come up missing. I guess because i was the youngest; they blamed ME without any proof. It doesn't stop there! I always kept track of my clock-in slips. I never even got my first paycheck yet. They jipped me out of 60 hrs. of pay!! i counted my slips it just didn't add up! Well when i confronted the owner, he said i stole money and i didn't. So i dragged my parents up there; so i could get the rest of my pay.They fired me! i was gonna quit anyway.I was so mad i was going to report him to the news. I was told not because he was considered a dangerous man. He was supposedly part of a bigshot mob. I obviously don't believe he is, but i stopped the process anyway. I figured it was gonna take to long of a
process to get my hard-earned $100. I look back now and i wished i did something.
Silent Revenge
I was working at a call center where we were contantly on the phone with customers. I has just switched teams and moved across the room to a new row two days before. My old team was announced to having been the top team in the center. I look over at my friends across the room and they start laughing at me and mouthing off how much my team sucked. Since I was in the middle of a call, I simply raised my right hand and flipped them all the bird. Unfortunately for me, a manager who was trying to get me fired saw the whole thing and went to upper management. I was fired for unprofessionalism in the workplace. 8 months later, still unable to get a job.
Why i got fired
i was at work one day and i accidently spilled coffee on my boss, and by girlfiend had just broken-up with me and i cursed out my boss. He fired me in a snap of a finger.
Shopping Carts
I worked at kroger and i was the cart guy. So i would push all the carts to the racks and shovel so that people could use them and stuff. During winter, I was taking out a whole stack of carts, and I had to stop on the wheelchair ramp into the building for a car. The front six carts came out of my stack, and rolled into the car. So the chain had to pay for a new mirror, paint job, and hubcap.
i was walking into work and my boss came up to me and started telling me things that i was supposed to do all day at work. i was supposed to go home early that day to watch my sons. i got so mad at him i dumped my hot coffee all over his white shirt and tie.
It was a monday morning and i worked at McDonalds someone asked for a large fries i gave them small then they complainded to my boss and he fired me.
Hot Dog Embezzler
I got fired for rolling on the floor MI style behind the cafe at a store I used to work at. I stole a hot dog because the cafe was closing in only 15 minutes and everything was being thrown away. There was a really nasty lady who worked there so it was pretty funny. My friends were cracking up so I hit my one friend in the jowl with the hot dog. Then I bit the top off and spit it at my other friend. I then threw it away, i never actually consumed ANY of the dog. I came in the next day and got called to the office. They showed me the video of myself rolling behind a counter and stealing the hot dog. They couldn't see what I did after and since i was already on probation for telling a lady that her "sturdy" mop could be used to beat her kids. So they fired me. FOR HOT DOG EMBEZZLEMENT it actually says that HOT DOG EMBEZZLEMENT.
Cashier not a detective
I worked at a beauty supply store for about two weeks, when my boss told me I had to follow certain people around the store. She pointed out several black women to me and said they might steal something. I told her I wouldn't do that. She fired me the next day for not following company policy!
St. Patrick's Day only in Chicago!
I was just 20 and missing my hometown of Chicago. I recently moved to California and I loved celebrating St. Patrick's Day, even though I am not Irish, lol...but everybody in Chicago is Irish on St. Paddy's Day, but I soon found out that only Irish people in Los Angeles celebrate and by celebrating they wear like a green shirt, ugg...Sooo...I had to gather all my friends from Chicago and really party. SO we really partied and had a great time, but missed the Parade and the green river. When I woke up, about 6:30 am with a great huge hangover, my girlfriend was designated to call my office and tell them that I was sick. She did call and tell them not that I was sick, but that I had broken my arm!
It was a Thursday, so I had some time to work on this "lie", and too recover. On Sunday night my boyfriend and I went to the local 24 hour drugstore and found some of that cast stuff. We soaked the strips and put it on my left wrist due to fact that I am right handed and wanted to use my hand, and proceeded to let the cast set. Ouch, if you don't have a broken arm, wrist don't place it in a cast! After a week of work I could finally take the cast off, then put on another one Sunday night. When I went into work, the owner reconized that the signatures on the cast were not there from the week before, such as his two children! He explained to me how he really loved my ambition, with the cast, but he could not have me work for him and could not trust me...I have since never had a friend call in sick for me. That was my lesson, lol!
Mean Boss
Well, I worked for a smokehouse over the summer. My boss was new and she sucked!!!! She threw measuring cups at me, so I told someone else who worked there that I was quitting after that day. That person told the boss and my ex-boss called me at 6 in the morning to tell me that I am a unhappy person and I need to find a new job. Needless to say, I don't eat or go near there anymore.
i was 13. and i was a babysitter for some neighbor kid for 4 days. i got fired cuz i forgot to clean a mess of the brat's barbies in the basement.
The Ternderloin
I was working at a retirement community and i was head cook of my kitchen. It was about 6:45pm,we had just got done serving supper and i was cleaning up the front line to prepare to leave for the night. When we serve supper we fill out tickets for the residents so we know what to put on each plate and who the order goes to. Its really busy during serving time that sometimes the tickets get lost or sometimes we forget to fill out one for a resident. We also have room tray tickets (a residednt eats in their room). Well this one room tray ticket never got filled out or completed so a cna came into the kitchen to ask for a tenderloin on a bun with french fries! well at this time i only have 15 min to fill the order so the cna ask the resident if she would eat a cold meat sandwich instead because i didn't have enough time to prepare the tenderloin and she said YES without and fuss. Well the next morning when i was well into my shift the kitchen
phone rang for me and it was one of my bosses. She asked me all about the night before. Well by this time i was all upset because i knew they were mad because i didn't make that tenderloin and the resident had complained that she didnt get it. After the phone call my favorite boss came up to my kitchen and asked me what was wrong. So i told her and she just told me to forget about it and everything was going to be ok. Well 15 min later the phone rang....they (2 bosses) wanted to see me. This was it, 3 years in the making all down the drain. "you refused to -prepare a grilled tenderloin for a resident and we have had complaints all day long" YOUR FIRED! Thats so funny because a week before that my best friend got fired for burnt chicken!
Termination From Worlds Of Fun
Well, i was operating a ride called the Finish Fling and i was texting on my cell phone at the same time. My supervisor walked up and noticed what I was doing. She started yelling at me and some words were thrown around, apperently texting while peoples' lives are in your hands is strictly prohibited. I was sent to the manager's office and i was fired.
Fired For Arguing
I got fired for arguing with the boss and pushing the boss into the wall.
I was working with a guy named Karl as security for a club. He was a horrible employee and management wanted to fire him but knew he would collect unemployment so they came up with the idea to convince him that he had won Powerball and in turn most likely quit his job. So the night of the drawing the managers called out over the radio that they were sending Jon (another security guard) to the store to get PowerBall tickets and if anyone wanted tickets to see Jon before he left. Karl came out front and gave Jon $5 for tickets and Jon went. When he came back the General Manager jumped into his car and copied down a set of numbers from one of the tickets and told Jon to give Karl that same ticket. Just a minute or two after they ran the numbers on the tv the manager read the numbers on the radio that were copied down and given to Karl as if they were the winning numbers. So as predicted, Karl ripped off his headset and radio, threw them to the floor and walked out. He drove to the nearest gas station to claim his multimillion dollar prize and found out that he in fact didn't win. He turned back around to ask for his job back and when he arrived the manager just smiled and shook his head no! They had 2 of us "escort" him off the property. Thats evil!!!
What the heck?
I was fired from a law firm after a week and a half of being a receptionist. The only reason the lawyer could give me was that if and when i got my own transportation (i didnt have my own at the time) I would be gone to long on running papers to the courthouse!! (What the heck!?!)
Its not my fault I had brain surgery
My boss called me into her office to tell me that she did not like the way I was styling my hair and that she could not stand looking at me another day with my hair styled that way so it was time I moved on and then went on to complain about how I came to work when I was sick because I looked like hell and can't look like that in front of clients. I came to work thinking it was better than calling in because I could still do my job I just didn't look too great. And she did all of this when I had brain surgery 6 months before and had my head shaved. Styling my hair was not the easiest thing to do considering the fact that I had long hair all of my life. I feel like I was fired because of my surgery.
