I was 15 when I started working at a newspaper. I filled out an application and everything that said I was 15. I started working and everything was going good when one day I came in and they told me that I couldnt work there because I was only 15 and I had to come back when I was 16 (they told me this afer a few months of working there). Now I am 16 and I have an even better position at the same newspaper.
Buying from Competitor
In the days of the Five and Dime Stores, I had a job at the Woolworth Store in our town. After clocking out one day, I wanted to buy a candy bar to eat on the way home; but, I did not want to take the time to go through the long procedure involved in making an employee purchase.
So, I walked a few doors down the street to the Kress's Store. I went in, selected, and paid for the bar of candy I wanted; then, turned around to see the Woolworth Store manager standing right beside me!
I nervously blurted out an explanation, but, he made no comment at all. However, when I went in the next day to see about my work schedule for the following week, the secretary told me that I was not scheduled to work at all! She did not know why, but, I was sure that I knew why.
So, I walked down the street to the Kress's Store, filled out an application, and, they told me to come in to work the next week.
My sister took a part-time job while in high school but she also loved to go out with her friends. Well, the party of the year was scheduled and she was also scheduled to work the same night. She decided that she would call the manager and tell her she had broken her leg and would not be able to work that night. She did not think her plan through well enough because not only did our cousin's husband work there and the manager called our house to see how she was doing. Well, my mother did not know she had broken her leg as she had just seen her walk out of the house only an hour before she received the call. Needless to say, she was fired and on top of that, our mother made her go back to the restaurant to apologize for lying. She never did that again.
Cancer bald and Fired
I went thru radiation and was bald and not allowed to wear a wig for medical conditions. I wore a scarf. I was fired as a director of a daycare after 13 years.
My friend Brian worked about 30 minutes away and i went to college by where he worked. Well, he offered me a ride back to college one morning because he had to go to work.
Well, we broke down on the interstate. He said that his job was already mad at him for absence, so he walked with me back to the college, and left his car on the interstate.
He not only lost a job that day, but lost a car too!

THE HELL HOLE
I WAS WORKING AT IHOP FOR 1 WEEK WHEN THEY GAVE ME A VEST THAT DID NOT FIT. THE MANGER SAID YOUR TOO FAT. I SAID SCREW YOU, SO HE FIRED ME.
I bought something for a neighbor of mine. He got a discount through me. He saved over 200 dollars. He decided to go up to Best Buy and return everything in that i had bought for him. He told on me and i got fired.
crisco disco music
I was fourteen at the time and I used to run to the store for the little ol lady down the street and she had asked me to bring her CD's and food items often and she was from burma and still had a very strong accent and she said crisco and I misunderstood her words and came back with twinkies a coke and a greatest hits disco CD and the same day her cat died and she wanted to bake a pie and she got pissed and didnt get any money and i had to get my parents to get her to pay me back and she never did but at least I got to return the CD. And guess what? Apparently she killed her self 5 months ago with a sawed off shot gun in her uncles cabin ( i could tell she was mentally destressed but not to this extent).
The boss from hell
so i work my ass off for this woman day in day out. but she is never satisfied. she was the devil, true story. so one day she calls me in her office and says shes letting me go but i can finish the rest of the day. when i ask what the problem is she was like your not on time enough. i looked at her and said not on time. so coming in for my shift ten min. early is not on time? she looked at me and said well you called in sick yesterday. i looked at her astonished, because i was in the hospitial, you stupid jerk. You never liked me in the fisrt place and seeing as you have the audacity to act like a two year old instead of a boss i will not finish the rest of the day. you can sit on it and rotate. That was a bad day .
knowing when 2 much is enough
Well my friend valerie and i were workign togehter at burger king hoping that we would get free stuff at work and go home happy. Well it didn't really work that way and we ended up having half priced instead of free. So valerie got really mad and thought that revenge would be a good way to start. While i was working the cash register she was working the onion ring machine, she put so much in it that when they came out they looked all bad. I took the blame for it since i was the cash register person all the customers came down hard on me with their gross half done onion rings in their hands. The manager finally came out adn told them that they could have their money back since the machine wouldn't work. Valerie was fired ina second and she had to pay for another onion ring machine....
I workjed at pizza hut!
and Í was always late so before I could go to work I cold not eat because i would get there later!and when I'm at work I'd always eat!pizaaaa so before The pizza's where delivered half of it was gone!1
Ok i was working at a public library.My boss was and lady.I was talking and she said i was talking too loud.She fired me for talking too loud before i left i knocked down every book shelf they had.
I worked as a custodian at the golf course. I got let go suddenly and without warning. I asked my supervisor why and she said that the golf course superintendant claimed that I argued with him about when I take my breaks. Total lie! Anyways I still got a job, just elswhere on post. I call my best friend and rant about the lies and said I might beat his face in. The twerp played it for the superintendant, and I got fired from my new job before it even started.
Happy New Year
I called in on New Years because I had a hangover. What made it worse was the fact that they were going to fire me anyway because I threw pizza at some lady for tipping me only 5 cents 2 days prior.
So I worked at the Home Depot call center. I was a customer service rep. One day my car got broken into, the passenger side window was broken, and my purse was stolen with everything in it. I called into work, about a week later they fired me. I even offered to show the police report, but they just booted me out of there.
John Deere Landscapes
I worked at John Deere Landscapes for 4 months till I was brutally fired. I was hired as a warehouse specialist but my boss discovered that I was a talented sales person. He had me cold-call over 70 potential customers in hopes for them to come to us with their business. I was pretty successful and I had some huge clients coming in.
To make a long story short. My boss ended up finding a way to fire me so he could get the credit (and the bonus)for making those calls. In fact, he was required to make all those calls but pawned it off on me, just to fire me and get the glory!
He said I was fired because of my insubordination in a situation where he told me I could have a Friday off to see my girlfriend. But on the prior Wed, he told me I couldn't go anymore. With no reason. That Friday he actually made me stay 2 hours late and out of frustration I ended up delivering the wrong shipment to the wrong customer. He set me up for failure and fired me.
we dont need you
i worked at and ice cream shop and my employee played a trick on another employee. only the trick backfired onto himself in which ice cream fell from the ceiling and hot fudge came with it. i had to fire him on the spot but it was cool.
After a year working at the butcher i had enough of my loud mouth boss that told me to do everything. So one day after cleaning one of the big frigde i ask her to come and have a look if it was clean as she stepped into the frigde and walked to the back i shut the door and sliped a bar downthe lock so she couldn't get out. I then went and to the other people i worked with and told them i was going home, later that day i got a phone call from a person who worked there he said that it took 3 hours to get her out as every one went for their lunch and he told me i was sacked.
False Time Card
I was fired once for "fudging" my time card and making it seem like I worked hours that I didn't. My boss dragged me into his office and yelled out a classic "YOU'RE FIRED!!" so that the entire office could hear it. I thought that only happened in cartoons or in movies, but I guess I was wrong. It was very embarassing.
