Once you hit that age of being a teenager, the real world starts to creep on you, which means… It’s time to get a job. For some, they get lucky and it last for years… For others, not so much. I mean, you may have tried your hardest or maybe you didn’t… Either way, why did you get fired and fired fast?
In Germany, a museum house keeper was in for a fast firing when she scrubbed a one million dollar piece of art off the museum’s floor! Apparently she didn’t get the memo when she and the rest of the housekeeping employee’s were warned to stay away from the “When It Comes Dripping From the Ceiling," a piece designed to look like a drain surrounded by drying water. Sadly, the piece can’t even be replaced because the artist, Martin Kippenberger, died in 1997. Ouch!
In China, there is a billboard that usually broadcasts only ads, but at some point during traffic yesterday, it started to air porn! People were shocked, laughing and taking pictures. Turns out an employee at the billboard company didn’t realize his computer was in control of the billboard so when he started his x-rated film he had no idea it would be broadcasting to China. Luckily, he caught it after ten minutes, but unfortunately, I think that was enough for a fast firing!
Recently, I decided I needed a second job and my co-worker at the time took up a second job as well, working at a Halloween store as an assistant manager. I thought, well this is perfect, so he got me a job and within a week he was fired. See, the store needed to be open on a certain day and we were running really behind. About a week behind and corporate… They had enough of it. So, they fired the manager and thought maybe we should just go in a different direction altogether and fire the assistant, as well. That was the fastest firing I have ever seen. It was sad too because he was great at his job!
Have you been fired? Have you had to fire someone?
