I used to work at a Carpet cleaning agency and didn't work on weekends and usually kept the van keys with me. One weekend I decided to use the company van to go to the shore with. I had forgotten the van needed brakes. The following monday one of the other employees needed to move the van and he quickly reversed it into a spot by a brick wall and went to slam on the brakes but didn't catch and he slammed it into the wall causing a good amount of damage. My boss looked up the Ez-pass record and noticed it was used over the weekend and terminated me.
I knew it!
well this was a couple years ago I was working as a sales clerk in some store I was talkin to a co-worker about how they were cheating us out of money. My co-worker looks at me and tells me that they have microphones to hear us and me not believing it kept on rambling about how they stole my money. The next day my manager tell me I'm fired because I could find a better job that will pay more money I was like omg it was true lol. Months later it turns out that my manager had a stealing money scheme in the store I was like I KNEW IT! point is he got fired and as for me I moved on.
Wet Soulder
Well.. I worked at an arcade at the local mall..boring job, crappy pay..anyways, one day I was at work, it was a weekend, so it was pretty packed. I was just hanging out at the counter talking to some friends, and one of them wanted to play DDR, so without thinking I went over to DDR and opened it up, threw some free credits on it, (which we always did) forgetting that my supervisor had just gotten finished souldering a wire on the inside, and went about my business. Well, a while after the credits ran out, I was swamped with customers, and my friend wanted to play DDR again, so I threw the keys at him and told him to bring them right back to me, as I was too busy to run over and put credits on for him. So..a few days go by, and my supervisor calls me and asks me if I had given the keys to anyone for DDR..and I was like "yeah" and hes like ok well DDR is all messed up now, and youre going to be in trouble..blah blah..so I had a few days
off and I went to see a friend who lives out of state..and I wasn't too tight with my money because I knew I would be getting paid soon..So when I get back, I go to work to get my check, and a friend comes up to me and is like " I heard you got fired, Im sorry" and Im like "???" So I mean they fired me without calling..without letting me know..and I thought it was pretty GEH...
Tah Dah
I was working at a BurgerKing in Hull, when I started eating a burger when nobody was in the restaurant, I decide to eat it because I hadnt eaten anything for over 30 hours, My boss saw me and sacked me, not only did he sack me, he ate the burger in front of my face.
the day i got fired
i was working at tesco at christmas and i was very fed up off how the day was going. so i decided to keep scanning the same item over and over again to one customer without them knowing.the longest chain of scanning the same item was 23 on a bottle of coke. i finally got caught when my boss decided how i was getting on and guess what... i got fired.
No more monkeys jumpin on the bed...
Haha i worked at a hotel and i had to go in early in the mornings.. about 7 a.m. and the night before was a friends birthday... when i went into work i was still drunk/hung over.. so while my coworker was trying to make the beds i was jumping on them and then soon after i was worn out.. threw up.. and passed out on the bed... my coworker got mad and decided to leave me behind... when not only the people staying in the room... but my manager came in to check out the toilet that hadn't been working all morning... that day it was kind of a relief being fired because all i wanted to do is sleep and throw up in my own toilet... that worked... haha!
It was my first job. I started working a fast food chain. I had only worked there for about 45 minutes when my manager asked me to fill the ketchup pump in the dining room with ketchup. So I went and got it and I saw a big box of the ketchup packets (you know the ones they put in your bags in the drive-thru). I took the packets and started emptying them into the ketchup pump thing. My manager was standing behind and she started rolling with laughter when she said that she was going to have to fire me for wasting company money. Well at least I was worth a laugh anyways. Right???
Nursing Home
i got fired from a nursing home because my boss said that i was pushing the patients down the hall to fast in there will chairs and the patients were upset that i left and it still hurts me
my friend got fired because he started the office building on fire because he was smoking and it burnt down . then he didnt confess and it took like 20 days to figuare out it was him.
sick time
i had almost 80 hours of sick and vacation time and i used it all within 3 weeks i was down to an hour and a half and my boss fired me after working the for 6 years
Drinking on the job
I worked at a day care. I worked with first graders. One day I came in with what everyone thought was a strawberry coolata. Nope! It was very much spiked with vodka. I threw up at work and the kids just thought I was sick. The director could smell the alcohol and fired me. oops
My Mother's Involvement
I was working at a local restaraunt in town (I'm from a small town) as a waitress. Waitressing wasn't really my thing, but I did the best I could and I think my boss recognized that (which is why he never really fired me). It was the summer before my first year of college and he hadn't given me hours in over a month. So I called and asked why and he gave me a reason that seemed perfectly logical to me, but my mom didn't feel the same way. So after I hung up my mom called him and started railing on him, saying she didn't like the way he ran his business and that he was an unfair employer. It was bad. I'm still too ashamed to go eat there again. Some friends that were working then told me later at school that they had heard my mom yelling and just cracked up. it was bad.
glued door
so i had this dumb boss who left three young teenage girls to run her boutique while she went on a vacation to israel (which she didnt tell anyone). The day she came back, the store was a mess and she made us stay there until 10 p.m, way past the time we were supposed to leave (4 pm it was a friday.. and shes orthodox jew by the way lol) so anyways my boyfriend got so mad at what she did that he put crazy glue in her door the next day. The day she went to open the store, there was a heat wave and about 95 degrees. Take a wild guess what happened to that door, and to my job.
How I got fired
My friend was kinda mad.Once he was told by his boss to bring some tea.The bass liked it.The boss continued his work till evening at his place.At about 4 he told my friend to bring tea just like the one in the morning and my friend did.The boss said"Hey, this tea stinks,didn't I tell you to bring me one like in the morning!"And my friend replied" Well....Sir,I don't remember the exact recipe of the one I made in the morning so I just gave you the remaining tea which was left ."
My friend used to work at Oportos, and he was the chef, one day a man ordered a meal, and he brought it back 5 times so my friend through the chicken at him,it just barely missed his head but his tupee (wig) moved a little. he was fired the next day.
Damn that buffalo
I worked at denny's a few years back and on my break decided to play the claw machine. I put twenty five cents in manuevered it around to the first thing that looked easy to get which was a buffalo and suprisingly won it.when i went back into the reasturant my manager came up to me and said if i didnt give him the baffalo he was going to fire me.Come to find out he had spent over sixty dollars tryin to get that buffalo and it pissed him off i got it with one quarter. Anyway to make a long story short he didnt get it and i got fired.
gap is not cancer friendly
i got fired cause i was sick for too long with tongue cancer. just doesnt seem fair. oh well
the scary firing.
I was on a break with my friend, and we decided to so something fun. So we went on youtube and watched a featured video. The one we watched was supposed to be about a ghost in a summer camp, but all that showed was a picture with a quiet song, and then a ugly face and scream at the end. Well, we turned the volume up really high at first because we enjoyed the music, but then when our boss came to tell us to quiet down, the scream came. As my boss opened the door and came to us, the ugly face and VERY loud scream came on. My boss was so scared, he banged his head on the cabinet and got a huge bruise, and he spilled his coffee all over his shoes. Well, after we got him to stop screaming and cleaned up the coffee on the floor, he looked at me and my friend with a red face and screamed "GET YOUR FACES OUT OF MY SIGHT". We then sadly went home to make up excuses to our wives....
My friend was working at the hospital in the cafeteria he hadn't had much sleep the night before due to staying up all night playing video games so he decided he would take his alarm and pillow to work and sleep during his breaks in one of the booths out front were the patients and visitors could see.
I was fired from my position at a retail store, I was in loss prevention. My reviews came in the month before all very favorable. Any way I was fired for haveing M.S. I ask you is that fair? I also lost all my medical coverage, for myself and my young daughter.
