Wrecking the boss’ car, insulting your company’s biggest client, catching the office on fire… it seems like you’re ten times more accident prone at work and every mistake can be blown up into a giant catastrophe! These mistakes and accidents sometimes end with someone being fired.
Slacker says that if he was ever asked to house sit he would do the bare minimum: watering the plants, feeding the pets, and getting the mail. Basically, Slacker believes that when someone says “make yourself at home” it doesn’t mean take out the car… you shouldn’t act like you actually live there. Both Slacker and Steve are afraid of being called into the office after their show.
Have you even done something at work where you should have been fired?
I’ve never done anything too terrible while on the clock, but I definitely have made some giant mistakes that have turned a shift into an unbearable monster. I used to work as a coat check in an establishment that got tons of business- we were usually at or above capacity on the weekends. However, my first night on the job I ended up losing a customer’s jacket and I happened to lose it on one of the coldest nights of the week. All I could do was apologize profusely and hope he wouldn’t scream too loudly at my manager and end up getting me fired my first day on the job; none of which happened thankfully.
