Sick and Tired...
I was working at a drug store and my boss had scheduled me to work the week before Christmas. Since it's really busy she needed me to be there. I told her barring any health or family issues I would be there.
Two days later (the Monday before Christmas) I got the flu. Bad. So bad that I actually went to the doctors, and had to get a prescription for antibiotics and some other stuff. My mom took it to the pharmacy in the store I worked at to get it filled. That evening I called my boss and told her I couldn't work that week because the doctor told me I needed to rest.
On Friday I called to tell her she wouldn't need to find someone for my shift because I was better. She told me not to bother coming in. I was irresponsible and couldn't be trusted. She didn't believe I was sick. (Even with a note and the prescriptions filled AT HER STORE)
Grocery store messup
Well I had started at a local grocery store and I had worked there about 3 weeks. I was dating a guy from 6 hours away. He decided to come see me. I had to work that night, so I decided to lie and tell them I was sick. I called in and my boyfriend came into town. Well in the mean time my mom had got sick. When he arrived she asked us to go to the store to buy her some medicine. So stupidly I decided to drop into the store that I had worked for. I walked in and my boss met me at the door. I acted like "I" was sick. He fired me right on the spot and to make matters worse right infront of my boyfriend. He was so embarresed that he broke up with me and told me I was a jerk.
I was working in a factory type job in a middle management role. I had access to all of the tools and had general maintenence responsibilities. I also had a key and the alarm code. I opened up the factory one night after midnight, long after it had been vacated by other employees and I went into the infeed room which is full of metal roller conveyors. I grabbed a plank of timber and after turning on the automated rollers I threw the plank down on them and jumped on in an attempt to ride it like a surf board. I fell and landed with my leg stuck between the rollers and though I wasn't seriously injured, the serveilence cameras caught the whole thing on tape. I was fired the next day for entering the factory with no purpose and for gross negligence resulting in harm to myself. (Apparently I lacked the maturity for the job!) I am currently trying to convince my friend who still works there to retrieve the tape.
"no tips for you!"""
Oh my gosh! I know this story sound wack, but it was true. I used to work at this chinese buffet for like 4 and a half weeks. And every day i would get average up to 50 dollars in tips. But what I didn't know was that I wasn't suppose to take the tip. So for the first two days I took "MY" tip. And he pulled me aside and said your only a "bus-girl" your not suppose to take the tip. So we had a long discussion about it. And he said, "if the customer gives you the tip directly then you can take it." so the next day I was serving these very polite old folks and they handed me 10 dollars. I was like, "Cool! my first 'REAL' tip!" and then after I was finish cleaning up the table, the boss came again, pulled me aside, and said "I thought I told you not to take the tip" Then we got into this discussion about if the customer leaves some tip on the table for the waitress and hand me
some then I could take it. But if the customer only hands me the tip then I'm not suppose to take it because I'm only the "bus-girl" So then I quit before I could get fired! This story still gets to me!!! ahahah
Well so I had been working at job for about a year when i started getting sick. I was passing out and the doctors couldnt figure it out. SO a few months went by and i had passed out quite a bit so i wasnt at work alot i had called off like maybe 7 times those couple months and one day i came to work and they fired me for calling off and that wasnt even the bad part she was so mean to me like it was my fault and i was doing it on purpose. I was crying so hard and i couldnt keep it in because i just felt so not in control and she was just like ok well bye your fired. so that is my I was fired story it has been horrible. I still have no job because of my illness no on w ill hire me. So i'm done being depressing but thats my story!!!
My mom's friend works at the target distribution center. one day she was lifting a skid in a truck because she was unloading them and she got a sharp pain in her neck. later on she had to tell the company and the company had a meeting about it they decided that it was her fault and she was fired.
My boss sucks
My Friend told me this story.
She came to work on Monday like it was any other day but it wasn't no it was not .She was going to be fired that day .Her boss ask her to come to his office and of course she did.Then when she got in she understood he had bad news to tell her .This was his words.
"Rachel I'm sorry but we well we have to let you go ."
"It is not you it's this company we did someone with more expirence for the up coming projects.I'm sorry really."
"No i get it i will get my stuff and leave good bye John,I hope you find the persons you need."
Well it was a week b4 xmas, and I decided to confide in my boss about a sickness that I had aquired. She was at first sympathtic and assured me my job was fine. She said she didnt know much about it and was concerned about it being contagious. I assured her that it was only possible blood to blood and that the probabilty of that was slim to none as all I did was serve drinks and food. So things went well for two days and then I was called into the office and she sat me down. She said "John I cannot allow you to work here any longer." How come I asked. I can't tell you why. So she refused to tell me why but I knew deep down why. So I got up and retrieved my coat and walked out.
kiss and tell
So i was working like always, I am kind of a big flirt. Anyways this cute guy comes in and asks for my number not only did I give him my number but I left from behind the counter went outside and was flirting around and making out with him when my boss opens the drivethru window and yells "go ahead and take your belongings and you two get a room. Dont worry about coming back to work." it was pretty embarrassing!
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.
