  • I was fired from a job where I was management. It was partly my fault, I could be a bitch, but it was also my boss. He didn't like the fact that I never kissed his ass and would tell him how I felt. He was a jerk, he later got his karma. That was fun for me. Lol.

  • Yep it just so happened that too many concedenses happened at once. I didn't intend to get fired but I got really sick, called in and they were fine with me staying out. The next day I was still sick so I stayed out again. I was going to return the 3rd day but my husband had a job 2 hours away and when I got up I discovered that he drove off with my car keys! They thought I was just laying out so they fired me.

  • I stopped going to work too, but that was because this guy found out where i worked and kept showing up there to see me. He wasn't a stalker i just thought he was kind of annoying and didn't say anything, plus i was only 17 i think back at it its so dumb

  • I got fired when I was 21. I was a computer sales person, and I knew bupkiss about selling computers. I didn't understand the difference between hardware or software, but they didn't notice for 6 wks. Ah, the good times.

  • yup....once when I found out what kind of shady crap was going on. I went to the boss about it and wouldn't cha know I went from the golden child to the squeaky wheel and was "laid off" but I knew it was really a safer way of them getting rid of me without a stink. I still turned them in though.

  • More times than I can remember. I don't care because they were all crappy retail and waitstaff jobs that got me through college and to law school.

  • Twice, from two different TV jobs. In both cases, management changed and they decided they wanted to go in a different direction. But each time, I wound up in better places making more money than I had before.
