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.
Never get hurt on the job.....
At the last job I worked at, we had a session about safety and how to handle materials that we worked with in order to avoid work related injuries. (Not to mention that we did not have health coverage from that company).
The next day I came to work, I was ready to take the trash out to the dumpster, I pushed the trash down in the bag for it to fit the bag, the next thing I knew I cut my finger and I reported to my supervisor to my big surprise all he could say was "go home and have some rest................."

My friend got fired ON THERE DAY OFF!!! Reason being that they shipped boxes to the wrong address in another state the day before.
damn fat dude
this fat guy got me fired by farting beside me and my boss thought it was me
how i got fired by a 9 yr old
Well i was in a band with my cousin who was like 9 and we had pretty good business and one day i showed up 4 practice and she was like "i found a cello player we don't need a singer anymore". and i was like how old is this kid? and she said"6". and i just flipped out. But now i have a new band with people i can trust.
Me and My Boss
It was April Fools Day.
I'd just got to work to find my boss wanted to see me. As I went to his office and sat down, he collapsed. I rushed around for help and to ring an ambulance, but before I did he jumped up to say April Fools. Needless to say I was relieved but also slightly annoyed so I decided I was going to get him back.
I thought very long and hard but the best I could think of was to place something in his office that would make him jump. So me and a few of my colleagues set up a trap while he was in a meeting, we made an alarm go off that would make him jump then as he got up to turned the alarm off he would walk through some fishing wire which would make a box tip upsided down full of mayonaise. It worked perfectly yet little did we know he was quite allergic to mayonaise and had to go to the hospital, so I got fired when he came back to work.
