The reason i did get fired is because i was playing the lottery at work!
drinking and selling cars do not mix
I had just got a job at a used car dealership and was doing really good. I was the new salesman at this locally owned car lot. anyways we had our christmas party at the dealership and i drank everything they had beer, wild turkey, fire water, and what ever else they had. when everything was over i did a dumb thing and decided to try and drive the few blocks away to my house. well when i put the car in gear and turned my head around to back up i gave my car alittle gas and instead of backing up like i intended i ended up going forward right into a this 2005 vw bug beetle. I was fired on the spot by my drunken boss. When i came in to pick up my check he was like where the hell you been? I told him that he had fired me that night when he was drunk and he said did I ..well good i already got that taken care of.
i was bored at work as usual and there was a guy in the corner that most other people pick on so i went up to him an tiped him off his chair little did i know it was my boss
Don't throw change!
I worked at Ruby Tuesday's for close to 3 years as a server. This story is about my co-worker and friend. If you have ever worked in a restaurant you know the stress and chaos that insues with your job. Well guys with short tempers who are in their early 20's are not the peope you want to piss off. My friend had a table of a really ghetto and rude family. They were being a pain in the ass just like all of you have been one time or another. Well needless to say the family's bill was around $75. Usually a tip of about $14. Well this family left him about $0.37 , many of which were pennies. Furious when he walked to the table to see this change left, he scooped up as much as he could and ran out the front door screaming. He yelled "I know you need this more than me a*******" and threw the change at the whole family, hitting them from accross the parking lot. He was fired on the spot, and what makes it even better is the next
day the restaurant got a call from the family's lawyer. They were pressing assault charges on my friend. All this for a couple bucks.
shopping, boyfriend, fired?
i was working for a rest home and everyday i went in to work there was something different well i went in one day and did my rounds then it was my lunch break so i told my boss i had to run to lowes hardware and get some stuff for the house she said ok so i went and while i was there i called my bf and was talking to him he told em he was going to quit as he worked at the same place i said ok i understand he told me i had a check at home so i ran home real quick when i get there he says i did it i called i was like ok then my cell rang and it was work telling me i was fired for leaving work even though i was on my lunch break.
Flowers or Court
i was working at a small flowers shop for 2 years and i actually had expanded it and brought in a lot of business with expanding the delievery area. Well one day i was makeing a fruit basket and my boss came in she looked at me came over threw the fruit out of the basket and said you dont know what your doing i said show me then she proceeded i went to school for 15 years and you are tring to do things your way and i dont like it (with customers in the shop) you are lazy don't do nothing no more and you screw everything up. Not thinking i said "damn you don't got to act like a B****" her husband came up from behind me (73 years old) and punches me in the back then she had the nerve to fire me and ask me to leave. Well i did. Went right to the court house and took papers out and then right to the unemployment office.
Lifeguard On DuTy
Alright well i was a lifeguard at one of the city's pools. The pool would normaly close at six and the staff goes home execpt for one life guard who had to secure the pool from people sneaking in until 10 pm. Well..I got bored and i told me friends to come over so we can all get into the pool, by the time they came it was like 11 pm. Just my luck the boss had forgot papers in his office and caught me with my friends and literally came over my head while and i was in the pool and said: "YOUR FIRED!" had to be the most embarrasing day lol
I went for a temporary job at a certain company. My "friends" at work told me to do it as slowly as I could. The boss was not supposed to know about it. I found it kind of strange and did it at my own regular speed. My "friends" made some very bad gossip about me and found a way of getting me fired before my contract was finished. Up to this day I don't know the reason for them to want me to work on a low speed.
Several years ago, I was working at a pizza joint to make some fast cash. The district manager told me to change the sign outside to "The pizza is here", "thats H-E-R-E, not H-E-A-R", he added with contempt. I promptly changed the sign to "Closed for private party" (it was friday afternoon). Several hours later, while he was wondering why so few customers had arrived on what was supposed to be a very busy evening, he noticed several cars enter the parking lot, and quickly turn around. Upon noticing a large party exit their vehicles, point at the sign and return to their vehicles and leave, he decided to investigate. I attempted to deny my actions with the sound reasoning that I was supposed to be illiterate, and thus could not possibly have spelled all those words correctly. It didnt work out.
Slaven at the Haven
I was just turned sixteen, the legal age for working in my state. Well, I was excited because I had just gotten my first REAL job at a town pizza place called Pizza Haven. The owners were a cute married couple who had both their son and daughter working as a family business. It was great at first, I had money, the people I worked with were fun and I eventually got one of my friends hired. Well, I noticed that when asking for a day off during the week, my lady boss would give me and entire week off. It was as though she was angry. Then one day I didn't see my name on the schedule so I didn't go to work thinking I had the day off. Well my friend called me up saying that I was scheduled and already late. So I talked to my boss, And she started screaming at me over the phone saying that I was scheduled, so I told her I had already made important family plans. Well she told me to show up or consider myself without a job and hung up. Well
needless to say, I found a better job.
So, I worked at this well known "Italian Resturant" as a hostess. I brought in a blank notebook because sometimes it got boring up front so I'd doodle. Anyway, a few of the other host(ess) got ahold of it and wrote some unkind things in it about another employee who was known to be a brat, to say the least. This person told me she was going to turn the notebook in and I told her, "Fine. I didn't write anything rude in it. In fact, I wrote things saying be nice." Of course she turned it in right that moment and I was called into the office. Then I was sent home. She wasn't even scheduled to work that day AND she wrote nasty things back to the people who wrote things to her in it! I was fired, everyone who wrote it was fired, and she wasn't.
Well both me and my boyfriend worked at subway, and one of our good friends was getting married. We knew that he babied this kid who worked there and always gave him saturdays off. So we asked for it off in advance. When the schedule came out and we saw that we were on it we told him we would not be there. He kept at it the whole week, and kept asking and we kept telling him NO! Well........needless to say we went to the wedding and proceded to get drunk at 11:00 AM in the morning.
I was using my bosses money for my pleasure's and the next day he take me to the airport and said you are fired and said I need your keys, car, and i will drive you home. I'M sorry
this friend lets call him Chucky went to party with a couple of pals of his anyways the party was amazing everyone had a lot of fun he ended up going home at 4:30am but he had work at 5:00 so he just went straight to it when he got there his eyes were blood red smelled like beer and it didn't help that he threw up there too.So the boss walks up to him smells him and Chucky is smiling like there something funny and yeah the boss just fires him.
Bleemin' chocolate letters
Half a year ago I worked in a chocolate letter factory, here in Holland these chocolaty digits are part of the holidays.
Anyway, I was working in the department where they pack the letters into displays, because you constantly have to work with sharp paper it's not unusual to have you hands full of papercuts at the end of the day, which I had, now call me childish but I have tendency of drawing random stuff of bandages.
Anyway, next day boss comes over to me and says that I don't work fast enough and would better be used packing seperate chocolate letters, well, this would mean that I could esentially eat chocolate all day so, I didn't mind.
With the bandages still on my hand I start working, working, and suddenly it's 10 pm, when I start noticing that some of my bloody bandages from my hands are gone...
At the end of the day, if there's been a good production the boss gave us all the letters that are unusable, he and his pet employee of course also indulge.
I get nibbling on my chocolate when I suddenly hear "BOOOOOOOOOB!!!!".
And I looked at the boss's pet holding a piece of bloody, now full of saliva bandage in it's hand, that had one of my drawings on it.
Needless to say, that night I was unemployed again.
I was sick on monday, and i had a note..my mum called in and everything, so i checked my schedule thinking that i worked monday, thursday, monday...etc.. well i missed monday, so i figured i worked on thursday and went in. I got there and my manager came over and pulled me aside..i guess i had to work the monday after i called out, and i was fired because i came in on the wrong day..they said they called my house, but i was home all day and the phone did not ring..isn't this unfair?..now its hard to get a job anywhere because i got fired from walgreens..grr
When i was 17, i worked at a grocery store. at the time, i was a smoker; as was another worker who was at the time under the age of 18. So, to purchase a pack of cigarettes, i went into his line because i knew he would sell them to me even though i was only 17. the "front end supervisor" saw the transaction and notified the manager immediately. Thus, i was fired for the underage purchase of tobacco products, while on the clock. The kicker is, another kid who was under 18 sold cigarettes to a minor which caused for police involvement, this guy only got a three day suspension!
Well i was in colorado on a missions trip and with my bad luck i severly sprained my ankle and i was out for a couple weeks but my boss wanted me to come back in so i did and then a few days later i got fired because i couldn't move fast enough, it was like i got fired for having a hurt ankle.
dared to hug
I was working at a gas station. It wasn't very fun. I was complaining about it to a friend. She dared me to go to work and hug every customer. So I did. And well apparently people don't appreciate hugs like i do. My boss came out and told me it is inappropriate and he could not have me doing this. So i gave him a great big hug and well needless to say I had to give my name tag back.
So Messed up!
I was employeed at a fast food place, well my boss had given me some verbal and written notices that I was slacking off and that my chances were slim. Well one day I came to work and tried to open the store and someone who worked with me had taken my key off my key chair so I couldn't get in and there was an enveloped taped to the door that said "Turn in you uniform or you will be billed! Have a nice day!" Can you believe that, they didn't even tell me in person!
