As the title suggests, do you have any bad/funny (or good) stories at your first day at your first job? Were you nervous? I guess I'm kinda lucky, as my mate whose already been working there for about 6 months is 'training me'.

So, share your stories.

I was actually. This amazingly gorgeous chick was training me, and was all "aw, how adorable, you're nervous."

After that it was mostly for show, but it was just disturbing to pretend after that.

Something almost happened with her. I totally dug her, but I have a girlfriend, and she got fired for stealing anyway.

My friend got fired for throwing up from food poisoning on the first day.

True story.

If it is a true story, and if he had signed a contract, he could of got **** loads of compensation if he'd sued.

KFC , but I have a friend who works at a music store and his dad is part owner and is "head" of the guitar section, and He said if I can put some form of experience on a resume, I'll probably be able to work there, which I'm pretty happy about

If you get a job in a guitar store I will be overcome with jealousy and I will explode... in my pants.

Not really, I didn't take any water though (etop tip: take water) and my throat felt about the size of a pea. It's cool now though, I'm pretty good at my job. I actually prefer doing paperwork over serving customers to be honest.

the first day you won't do anything.

No matter what the job is, you don't really do anything but paper work and watch people do things. Its like Kindergarden, you just sit back and don't do anything, but pretend to learn.

Think that's the same in Sweden, all the cool people wanna work there.

Anyway, my first day was ok, I was nervous but I had a supervisor that talked and talked so you never felt awkward and another employee who kinda looked after me coz I was the youngest and she was the oldest.
Tis good coz my shop only employs 4 people.

I've been at mcds for 3 1/2 years now. I can stand around doing nothing and no one cares, I have no excuse for going slow but no one cares, everyone knows me there, I haven't progressed at all in the hierarchy, but I can still tell everyone what to do... now that is awesome, I've decided to become a manager now though.

My first job was in a fish and chip shop. About an hour into the shift my boss suddenly pulled out the frying tray and poured hot frying oil onto my hand, when I asked 'WHAT THE FUCK??' he just said 'working here, the sooner you get used to burns the better.' He was right.

I just rememberd my first day, or saturday or something

Gahh terrifying

This guy walks up to me acting like he knows me, then proceeds to just talk at me for half an hour, i cant do anything but listen cos he gives me no chance to escape

My manager had to pretend i had a phone call to get me away

Then they explained id just experienced the one guy the whole store hates to see.

And recently we found out hes pretty mcuh a paediophile which was hillarious but creepy at the same time (he pretty much invited this kid to his house to "play video games" right infront of us)

Not a first job story but...
It was the start of winter and my dad found this good deal on snow tires...used snow tires. I hated em so overnight I decided to deflate one of them. He than got it fixed... So later on in the day I left for work. I took the long way cuz I was a little early. Right by the town where the mall is my OTHER tire that I didn't flatten blew out.
I cant describe how pissed I was.
I tryed to hitchhike to work but that didn't work so I had to run in snow/rain to get there.
The good times are killing me.

I used to work at a Walgreens. One day (not my first day) some guy tried to steal a couple of bottles of cokes and one of my assistant managers chased the guy outside. Once he caught up to the guy he kicked him right in the ass, the guy dropped all the soda and my manager grabbed them and walked back in. Most hilarious thing ever.
