Kissing at work?
So I worked at a pizza place called Eureka Pizza. The manager, was a good looking guy, in his 30's, but was married and had 6 kids. Every night, I would take a smoke break and he would always drop everything to go outside with me. I just thought he was bored or I was really fun to talk to? Anyways, one night we were both out there smoking, he kissed me!! I was shocked! I pushed him away and reminded him that he was married and had 6 kids, he didnt seem to care and tried to kiss me again. I walked away, got in my car and left. Next day I had called the area manager and told him the story, he said that Brian, my manager that kissed me, told him that I had just walked out and he fired me for lying to him!!! Messed up huh? haha
I worked at this lingerie shop as a second job. From the moment I was hired I told them I could only work one or two days a week because my first job was my main job. They understood and everything was ok for about three months. Then one day one of my managers said that I needed to be a little bit more flexible. I said there was no way, so I was told I would be back up and they would call me when they needed me. Well it's been about 6 months... still haven't heard anything.
Wendy's Day in Court!
When I was 18 I got my first job working at Wendy's resturant, I was so happy. I worked there for a year when they hired a new manager. Dana. I went in for my shift and saw that beside my name that I was off for 2 weeks, woohoo! So 2 weeks later I came back and Dana called me into her office,"I've been waiting a long time to can your butt, now get the hell out of my store." I was shocked, so I left crying my eyes out and went home and told my Dad, he said we'll see those jerks in court and sure enough we took them to small claims court. We called it Wrongful Dismissal, they said I was stealing from the condiments, What the heck? Needless to say the judge ruled in our favor and Head office heard about what Dana had done and canned HER butt. Karma works in mysterious ways.
keep your mouth shut
The manager at the store where i worked was going on vacation for a week. This man was full of himself, he thought he was the best salesman in the world. Well, while he was on vacation the owner of the company worked in the store with me, this was the end of the year and we sold abouut 7 or 8 hot tubs in one week. The owner sarcastically told me that 'we do not need tom", She said this a couple of times!!

When the manager returned from vacation, he said "Did Cecelia say anything about me?" I said"yeah, sarcastically she said we do not need you". He acted like it was no big deal.
The next day that I showed up for work. I was called into the owners office. While i was in there the manager started to cry and said he was really depressed about the things I had told him the previous day and the owner said the she never said "we did not need tom". So, she got mad because I was accusing her of being a liar and I got fired. Next time I will not open my mouth.
I worked at Taco Bell and got fired for eating to much food. They said I ate more than 4 fat pregnant women put together , so they gave me an ultimatum and said i can stay if I cut back on eating or they will dismiss me if not, I chose to EAT Because I LOVE FOOD AND FOOD LOVES ME! SO before I left that day . I had one last goodbye FEAST
My Record
i got hired at Wal-Mart with them knowing i had a prison record, and after about 1 year they fired me because the wall was broke from someone and it broke so i got blamed for it, they realized they were in the wrong. So i got rehired then about another year later they fired me for having a prison record! Now i can't get another job....
i did not were my suit, and i got fierd
Take this job and...
I worked at a library a few years ago. It paid like 4 buck an hour and sucked. So I went in for my first day of work and realized i didnt want to do it, so i left in the middle of my shift..without clocking out. The next day I just walked into my work, clocked in and left. I came back later to clock out, and walked past my boss. She just asked me how i was doing and how i was liking the job. I said great, and went home. I never went back. A few weeks later I got a letter in the mail from the library saying i was lazy and was not a reliable worker.
gotta go gotta go gotta go right now
I swiped ID cards at my college for my work study job, allowing people access into the dorms. I worked a six hour shift sitting at a desk swiping cards. We weren't ever supposed to leave the desk. If we had to pee, we were supposed to call for a break, but oftentimes relief took around two hours. So naturally, when I had to pee I wasn't going to wait two hours in extreme discomfort so I would always run down the hall and pee and run back. Took me sixty seconds top, and it's not like a murderer was going to walk into the building while i was gone, or if he was going to, it's not like i would be able to stop him if i hadn't left. anyway, one day a security guard was walked in during the sixty seconds i was away from my desk, reported me like an jerk, and my stupid boss who was just an older student thought that was worthy of firing me.
my fault
I barely went to work and if i did i went on their computer and ate there food and it was a daycare
Postman Pat
While i was working as a postman in a town i didnt know my way round in, i found it much easier to repost the letters i had and go to the nearest pub. I managed to do this for two days until the undelivered letters turned up and the manager realized they were from my round. Sorry if there was delay in your post.
I DID'NT say it!!!!!
i was a cook and i was talking to my assistant one night at work. there were 2 waitressses that were there that did not like me to begin with. After a while of talking to my assistant, the assistant manager came barging into the kitchen telling me that if i wanted to talk about her then i need to do it to her face and not behind her back. i asked her what she was talking about and she told me that the 2 waitresses heard me call her a nasty word behind her back. After trying numerous amounts of times that i DID'NT say it, she told the manager. about an hour later i lost my job of almost 2 yrs. right before I got a raise and before i started recieving vacation time. hey, the manager and the assistant manager were dating anyway. i really got screwed out of my job.... I DID'NT SAY IT!!!!!!!!
My Deranged Encounter
A man came into the she department at my job one day. He looked like your average Joe. Tall,white, a beard. As he was looking over there, he asked me for help and I couldn't help him because I had boxes in my hand. He became angry and, in his anger, called me nasty words. In my anger I pulled out a knife which he assumed to be a boxcutter and held it up yo his face. Mind you, I am not a violent person. My boss caught me and fired me, not because of the knife, but because I didn't call on her to assess the situation.
employee vs.waitress
Me and this girl had been having miss comunications all day. we ended up getting suspended from school because of the fight. We were suspended for a total of 10 school days. We had to work that night and we both worked at the same restuarant. The other girl didn't think that she got her full sayso in at school so she thought it was necessary to wait for me in the parking lot at work to finish out the conflict from school. SO here we are going full involvement and these customers show up and they think that something needs to happen so they go into the restuarant and they tak to the manager that was on duty which happens to be the owner. The manager comes out and he sees me hit her. I am fired on the spot for fighting with an employee in the parking lot. SHe gets to keep her job because she wasn't seen hitting me and the customers didn't see her hit me either. Needless to say that wasn't it. I showed up that night and placed a brick
through her back window of her ne
pwn the noob
i was at work one night when my friend tim came in to show me his new airsoft gun. was a little pistol airsoft gun that cost about 30 bucks.A fellow employee had been annoying me all night so i decided to get even. i borrowed the gun and when she went across the dining room to change some trash i pulled the gun and shot across the store and hit her in the back of the head. pwned that noob...boom headshot.
but of course the manager saw it and i was fired on the spot.
My Boss got me sleeping.
Waitress from the other side
Well it was my first job , besides the odd jobs. N-E-Ways I was going to be the new waitress @ a small town resteraunt. I did all my training and was working for 2 weeks befor the rest of my co-workers finally figured out i was Black and not mexican (a issue I've delt with my whole life). No offense was taken at all , even though i was the first black person they had ever hired there. Well, i was still in high school and my football team was going all the way we were 13-0. The state game was coming up and i asked for the day off. They told me if i could find some one to switch with me they would let me off. Well i had been working there for 4 months now and knew everyone and had my own regulars. Everytime they needed some one to fill in i would come on my days off with no problems at all. So when i asked for the day off to go to the state game i figured there would be no problems. I asked if anyone could take my place and my boss
said no one wanted to work for me. But i already had the tickets and was gonna go to tha damn game no matter what!! I called tha morning b4 to see if i had any takers and my boss assured me there were none but she would keep askin. I got up very early and boarded tha bus to the game. I called and asked again they told me no and I got fired for not showing up that day. i understand why i had gotten fired and got over it. In fact i do not dissagree with thier choice. But 3 nites later I ran into one of my old co-workers she and i talked for hours when finally she asked why had i got fired i told her the situation and she looked @ me in disbelief. She then led on to tell me that she told our boss that she had no problem takin my spot as long as i took hers next weekend and our boss told her that it was ok because i didn't need anyone to cover for me any more. And that I had changed my mind about going to the game. That I do NOT agree with!!
well my fiancee and i just found out we were gonig to have to relocate for his job. so we decided we may as well get married while we were still around family and friends. anyway i told my boss i could work for her untill i moved and she agreed that was fine, she's known me since i was little. well we only had a month to plan the wedding and i asked for the next 4 saturday's off so i could plan for it. well she got her husband to tell me if i need them off then i need to leave. that was so wrong b/c i ran the place by myself for over a month, so i said see ya!
The Bug Guy Got Me!
Well, I'll just start off by telling you that, this must have all been planned, and my superisor must have really disliked me, because: I was working at the local Dairy Queen, the closing shift manager(f.y.i Im 17 years old), and, at 9:15, the pest control guy walks in and claims, "I understand that the store was to be closed at 9:00." I had no idea, obviously not being informed by my supervisor. I question him about it, but was forced to make an immediate closing of the restuarant. Anywho, after finishing counting and organizing the registers, the bug guy approaches me in the office, (where by the way, we keep all the money) and asks me if I can keep the office open for the pesticide. Me, young and unexperienced as I am, responded, " Im not sure, We dont have a pest problem here, but I suppose if you need me to, I can keep it unlocked." Then he asked, If I could sell him an ice cream bar. "Well," I said
"we are closed, but perhaps if you have the right amount, I could just leave your money here in the office." So I sold it to him. Well, in the end, it turns out the pest guy told my supervisor that I gave him the opportunity to enter the office without supervision, and that I sold him ice cream after close. (Which by the way, is not allowed...) She fired me a day later.
I once had a temp job as a call center employee. I was flirting with this girl, and she was flirting back, U know a little frienly whispering in the ear, she would giggle, but tell me, why did I go and mess it up by sticking my tongue in her ear?. Her smile turned to a frown as if I had just vomit on her. She marched into the office. I was called in about 5 min later, and terminated on the spot.
