23 Hilarious Stories From People Who Were Fired Their First Week Of Work

7. I guess your supervisor thought you were kind of cute.

I got fired from a landscaping job after two days. Supervisor told me my work was fine but that I didn’t chat enough. Maybe I would have been more willing to chat with him if he hadn’t been hanging out on the porch naked when I showed up at his house on the second day to drive to the work site.

8. This person’s boss was obviously confused.

I was working as a bookkeeper for a local middleman construction supply company. They bought things like toilets, fixtures, and would sell them to construction companies. My job relied solely on the incoming vendor invoices of the day, so I could record them, do their markup, and send out invoices to their clients.
I started on a Monday, and the following Monday was a US federal holiday with no mail, so they told me on Friday that since there was no mail, it didn’t make much sense for me to come in because there wasn’t much to do and I was new. Ok Cool. Monday afternoon, there’s a message on our answering machine (this was years ago), and asked if I could call them back. After doing so, I got reprimanded for not showing up to work by the same guy who told me to take the day off, and told me not to bother coming in again.

9. Now that is the way you go out.

Day Two. I was fired because “We can clearly see you aren’t getting it.”

This was at a deli. They never actually showed me anything and left me on my own to serve customers during a lunch rush. Nothing was labelled to tell me what it was and their selection was HUGE. The customers were actually very nice about it and pointed to what they wanted, but when they finally returned they yelled at me in front of customers for the place being untidy. The owner turned into a demon woman when she told me to clean their meat slicer and I asked for training. When I was let go she bellowed “And return that uniform, and make sure you WASH IT!!”

A friend and I ran the uniform over with his car several times, I then dragged it through the mud and posted it through their letterbox when they had closed.
