i have once - i need to go to the loo now but will maybe tell you the exciting story when i am back
And started acting up, then was fired.
I think the whole gig lasted maybe 3 weeks.
Could've taken it to a tribunal I suppose but just thought it best to cut losses and move on. Wasn't an especially pleasant time.
from a pub doing glass collecting. their loss.
sacked for no real reason or explanation, just turned up to work one day and the landlord pointed at my replacement and told me i wasn't needed.
i know he didn't like me though, that was probably enough.
15 work days to go until I am released from here.
i pissed my boss off something rotten (by coming in for half a day on a day i had booked off, and not getting a day's work finished) so he was just a total dick to me for the next two months, probably hoping i would quit. then made me "redundant" claiming that my job no longer existed, and gave my job to my assistant for way less money. pretty illegal but couldn't be arsed to fight it.
Reckon my previous boss would have liked to, though. Put a bit of energy into getting everyone else in the office onside to make her look completely unreasonable if she tried it.
to firing when I totally fucking gave up on a job I hated. Managed to find a new job before it came to the crunch though.
it was a mutual consent type thing
but have been forced out twice - interestingly both organisations are now going under. Both absolutely terrible jobs so no great loss. I have a feeling if my colleagues werent useless I'd have been sacked from here too....maybe it IS me???
was drifting towards a sacking but jumped before i was pushed. just couldn't be bothered going to a disciplinary meeting.
Once ending with me sending an full two page letter telling my boss everything that was wrong with the company, him, and also threw in a "bellend" at the end and reported various health and safety breaches to the relevant authorities.
That job is still on my C.V. thus proving no one ever checks anything.
the lack of effort he's made here is appalling
hope he's okay.
And have a peek through the lightly frosted glass to check on him.
Worked in this weird old pub next to a beach in Norfolk...landlady HATED me, she got really pissed one night and sacked me. Her husband put his hands on my shoulders and was all like "there's no arguing with her when she's like this son...". I was 17. Gutted.
Got a written warning for playing an Otis Redding CD at work once (HMV). Good days.
put eels beautiful freak on on boxing day. Swearing, and there was a rule of 4 cds in the shop minimum to be able to play it and this was the only copy. Fuck 'em.
i was two months of the way through my three month probationary period. my manager (who i hated) told me i was 'customer unfriendly', which was an issue as it was a shop floor role. in my defence, most of the customers were wankers.
just a couple of hours after school
did a day or so- then i got ill (not related) didn't have any ones contact details to let them know, didn't turn up for about hree days as was sick.
rocked up after my first day back at school - sacked for not turning up!
i protested, but to no avail.
A sad sad day
