I was a waitress at at Applebees, I got so sick of the cheap people that would come out to eat and order a whole bunch of half price appetizers during happy hour and not leave me a tip. So I started serving underage
kids liquor for a fee. I also used to get my manger's card to comp food off the bill so I could pocket the money. In my last attempt I tried to give my manager a 10 dollar coupon for another cheap table, but then he confronted the table and I was fired! Thank God.
On a good one
I worked at the Ram restaurant and Brewery in Kent, WA. I was a server. I had to be to work at % in the evening so i decided to get drunk before. I had like 9 shots of vodka and a pack of cigarettes. I showed up to work totally blasted and everbody knew it. I even told them! They let me work my shift and then I was fired the next day.
I was working as a driver for a limosuine company. I was sent to the airport to pick up a lady who had to weigh 350-400 Lbs. When I got her home to her house to drop her off, she couldn't get the seatbelt unfastened. The more she struggled the more difficult it became. She started to panic and scream. This of course attracted a lot of her neighbors who came outside to see what was happening. I called my boss on the radio from the car and asked him what i should do. He said do whatever it takes to get her out of the car, because you have to hurry back to the airport for another pickup. That's all they care about is the next pickup. So I took out my pocket knife and leaned over her to try to cut the belt off. Someone who saw this called the police. They showed up guns drawn and needless to say I had quite a time explaining. I was fired for not being able to get back for my next pickup.
Experience not wanted
I got fired because they didn't want to pay for experienced employees anymore and felt I was being over-paid. It's fun, because they were the idiots that were giving me raises all along.
one day i decided to blow up some ink tags, you know the ones they put on clothes so people dont steal them, well i blew up a couple of them by stomping on them or throwing them against the wall, ink was everywhere :)! i was fired the next day by my fat, ugly manager.
I was babysitting and I got fired because i let a child have one cookie.
While working the night shift at a soda distribution warehouse there were about 20 of us driving around on pallet jacks filling orders for supermarkets and the like and loading them on truck to be delivered in the morning. I came around a corner and was side-swiped by one of my co-workers. My jack was loaded, his was empty so he bounced into a stack of cases of sobe. The impact broke about half of the pallet load (some 400 bottles) and he was pissed. He shoved be off my jack and took a couple swings at me. Though I wasn't hurt I wanted the jerk fired. Unfourtunately he was union and I wasn't. I got fired for fighting on the job. When I threatened a lawsuit over it, the company paid me for the rest of the season (it was a summer job) and my supervisor wrote me a glowing letter of recomendation for any future jobs.
my best freinds computers screensaver said "if u are reading this u r fired, yes u tony see me in my office asap"
DICKS SPORTING GOODS
I worked for DICKS SPORTING GOODS in Las Vegas, NV. That was until I got fired because I was sick. I mean really sick. I was throwing up and had to have someone from another department watch the register while I ran to the bathroom to puke my guts out. What happened was this, I had some sort of food poisoning and was throwing up alot, to the point where I just about threw up on my register. I needed to go home. This was at around 9:00am and I called my boss (CHRIS C.) and told him I needed to go home because I was throwing up. Now, I also hurt my back on the job, went to physical therapy and had a doctors note stating that I couldn't lift no more than 10 lbs. But this job didn't care and I was still lifting. Anyways, I needed to go home and my boss assured me that Id be able to leave at 11am when another person came in...No one showed up, and 12:00 passed, then 1pm...then 2pm... and by 3 I couldn't take it anymore so I left and went home.
Now I show up for work the next day and get fired by my boss Chris C. because he wouldn't let me go home. Do you know how unhealthy that was, not only for me but for my customers too... so i got my things, went home, took a hot shower and went to bed! The very next day I got a new job with UC Inc. located in the LVOC and I love it. I am currently still employed by UC Inc., the best company I've ever worked for!
Off the ramp
I worked at an automotive shop doing oil changes and tire rotations. To do an oil change I had to drive the cars onto a narrow ramp just wide enought to drive a car on. One day I hade to drive a truck onto this ramp and change the oil. As I was about to drive up the ramp, I meant to hit the break but accedently pushed the gas. I lost control of the truck and hurrled that truck right off the ramp. All this happened while the owner watched from about ten feet away. I went home after that never to work at an automotive shop again.
well my story does like this i woke up one day and decided to color my hair blue and went to work and i walked in and all the workers looked at me and were cheering me on and a costumer walked in and started talking to me and the boss wanted me to get back to work so i did and that day my boss came up to me after my shift and said here is up months pay go home and that is my story
I worked in a nursing home for almost a year when we got a resident that had dementia, and a slight case of schizoprenia. I was all by myself one night and she fell on me and pulled my back, when I got her back into bed she was trying to scratch and bite my arm. I was sent to the doctor the very next day....The doctor confirmed that I had pulled my back.
So my employer would not give me any days off, making me work 12 hours a day, even though the doctor's order said to rest as much as possible. So I asked for a weeks vacation time, and it was approved.
The third day of my vacation I got a call from my boss, stating that I had not showed up the night before so now I am fired. She ignored the fact that I was on approved vacation. She didn't want me to sue for the back injury so she fired me instead!!!!!!!!!
Dilly Bar Disaster
I had worked at DQ for about a month, and they NEVER gave free food, not even a fry. Not even if it was a mess up order. So one day, I was really freakin' hungry, and I had no money on me to spend on a hamburger. Me and my friend Tiff always would spot for eachother while we wolfed down dillybars in the big freezer, but Tiff wasnt working. I decided to go eat one anyway. I went in the freezer and got to work on a rock hard dilly bar. Once I was FROZEN and finished eating it, I went to open the freezer door, but it was locked! I started banging on the door but no one could here. Finally about 5 mins later someone opened the door, and I walked out all casually as if I had been in there for no more than a minute. Next day, I got a phone call from my boss saying there was hidden cameras in the freezer, and my dilly bar stealing days were over.
I was fired from my receptionost post
I was working as a receptionist in a reputed company. One day in the morning when i was going for work, my mom asked me to buy some things from the mall while returning. In the office, she called me to remind of mall. Between her call, the mager of the company(an old lady) called me for getting some files ready. Call got connected to the manager and I thought that my mom was on the line. I said "I love you". I intended that for my mom, but, the manager heard it. When the manager came to the office, she acted to me differently. Next day, the boss called me and asked me that do I really love the manager. I said that she is good at her works. And he gave me the dismissal order silently. I thought that it would be a promotion letter, but was shocked to find that it wasn't.
I worked with this guy at mcdonalds and you could tell he did not want to be there..none of us did...anyways-we heard the backdoor alarm go off, so the manager sent me and a male employee back there to check it out. We find this guy out in the parking lot with bags and bags of frozen patties and fries, throwing them- screaming some crazy rant..needless to say he was fired and arrested for theft (unbelievable, i know)..and my manager got mad at us for taking so long to clean up his desruction....we were laughing so hard.
Well Known Retailer goes stupid
I worked with a co-worker who's friend bought her some cupcakes because she had a bad night. The next day she got called into the office and and they fired her for accepting a cupcake without asking for a receipt. So, now everytime we see her we ask GOT RECEIPT?
Better Late Than Sorry
I was Late because my car had broken down and my boss did not believe me.
Boss fired me after buying me chinese food, fired me in front of EVERYONE! Customers, other employees, Very loudly said, "You no longer work here, please get your things together, and leave my store" After telling me the day before in his office that if I kept up I could become assistant mananger soon!
Fired for following the Rules
I was a waitress a TGIFridays for about nine months. I was a loyal, honest, hard-working employee who was never in any trouble of any sort. One VERY VERY slow night- a very elderly woman and her adult daughter came in and ordered an alcoholic drink from me. After I brought it out the daughter spoke to my manager and I soon found out that these two were secret shoppers (people who are hired to check up on chains and report back to the 'mother' company). The next day i was fired for not ID-ing the woman! Our rule is to card those who look under forty and seeing that this lady was obviously over forty I abided by the rule....and was fired. Even though I did what was I was taught, the manager basically wanted to cover his butt so he wouldn't get in trouble with HIS manager....uuuuuh.
I had been the receptionist for a general contractor for almost 2 years. For Christmas I got a bonus and in November had received a pretty descent raise. So in January when I was called into my bosses office I was not alarmed. The next thing I know, he states "We're making a change." I had absolutely no idea what was going on. I asked questions and he answered with the same...."We're making a change!" I collected my things and was escorted to my car. I couldn't believe it. Was I being canned so they could hire a young blond, or someone in the family....I mean what in the world was "making a change"? It's been about 10 years since this happened and I sometimes I still wonder what the real story was with that one?!?!
