I got fired today for bullshit reasons basically they said i stole and vandalized store property. They wanted me to tell on the person that actually did it, but I wasn't going to rat out another employee like that. So I was fired for 'just cause'. I'm pissed because I did nothing wrong.


So pit, have any of you been fired before and what was the reason?

It's still retarded that you can get fired for that.

I've never had a job.

I got fired from the airport for BS reasons. It was going downhill anyway though, the company I mean. Having to do too much stuff.
#10
Even i'm not that nice, seriously unless he is your good friend you shouldn't have to take the blame for some stranger who is stealing and trashing the place and then gets paid for it. I'm a pretty loyal guy but i'd rat that ****er out in a second.

When I was 18 and just out of school, I briefly worked at the zoo (Apprentice gardener).
In the month I worked there I...

- Arrived late almost every day (trains)
- Left early without telling anyone (to catch earlier trains)
- Drank during my lunch break
- Tried to pick up a teenage schoolgirl, her teacher found out and complained
- Never attended the weekly trade school classes I was suppose to go to
- Took two days off without calling in sick

Looking back I can't believe I lasted a month, but at the time I was actually surprised when they fired me.

So, wait, this could of all been avoided if you weren't an idiot and said who committed the offenses? Stop complaining then, you had your chance and you chose not to take it, it's your fault.

I finally got fired from a movie theater when I was 16 after 5 months a ****ing around and breaking the rules. I should have been fired a lot sooner but the company needed me. I was the best employee there.

Exactly, its not like he was ratting out Jesus or something. It was just a prick who stole and vandalized while getting paid for it too.

If I ratted out the employee, there would have been repercussions, his mother works for the same company and she has more 'pull' in the company than I do

Manipulation my friend.

If you think about it, you would have came out on top with the right words. At least if you told them, you'd still have your job.

The mother should raise her child better, if a child of his age, assuming he's over 16, doesn't know any better...well, he will just have to be taught a lesson. The mother doesn't have any say really..she could just get his job back, it's his own fault, and you shouldn't be held liable for anything.

What could she possibly do, get you fired? But that happened anyway didn't it. Sorry, but you ****ed up.

I was a pretty sick employee but they got a new apprentice while I had time off for my exams. So when I called to tell them I was coming back they were like "lolnah." And by that I mean they were like "yeah we're really sorry mate but we just got this new guy".

I was a kitchen hand...with the economic slowdown they had less customers so i would only be working three hours a week lol.

I've never been fired, but recently my flatmate who worked at the same place as me did, just because she didn't get on with the person she worked with on her side of the showroom.

The other person had been there longer, so couldn't get fired for 'no reason'. My flatmate, however, was a week away from working there for 3 months, and so was legally allowed to be fired for no reason. Shit deal, especially considering the boss made her do 45 minutes over time then phoned her 5 minutes after we left to tell her she was fired. Didn't even have the guts to say it to her face.

Probably for the best, cos if he didn't phone her after we left, I'd have punched him for being a colossal douche (I don't like the person who didn't get fired either).

its not a bullshit reason unfortunately if you won't report who is stealing when you do know.

you're considered an accessory to that particular theft until you divulge the information. Personally.. I'd say "**** it" to the retard who enough of a loser to steal from the place that employs him and preserve my own livelihood. does that me a bad person? no. i have rent to pay and a family to support. I'll be ****ing damned if i protect some dumb **** who thinks they can go around and do whatever the hell they want.

sorry. been in some shitty situations in workplaces before. of all which could have been avoided if people would just work instead of being useless.

The problem is, he would just tell them I did the things too and his mother would back him up on it since she works for the company as well.

No, I really was. I had been there the longest and had been fully trained in everything. And they knew that. That's why they were so reluctant to fire me and didn't do it months sooner.

Yeah I have been once. The reason they told me I was fired for 'cause I asked for holidays (and gave 2 weeks notice) which isn't legal as far as I know but I was stoked to get out of the place. Mum would light me on fire if I had quit. The actual reason they fired me was 'cause I hated the job and would have heaps of sickies, or they found out I was lying about having a car crash to get a weekend off..

Lol there's no anonymity in the place I work at ever, so I don't think it'd be a wise choice to tell regardless.

same with me bro about two years ago

I was working for a small town's grocery store/gas station and mainly i attended the pumps, sold cigarrettes and ect. Eventually a huge crime ring began to evolve around me and the employees and some were stealing cigarettes, and this one guy in particular (good friend of mine) came up with this engenius plan.

He realized that the cigarettes that were sent from the store to the gas station were not being inventoried. Therefore it was fine to give a free pack to a friend and maybe take one. Then to further that, he decided if I can steal packs and give them away for free I can profit off of this. He figured that if a customer came to buy a pack, and say they were $5 he would simply scan the cigarettes, void em out, take the persons money, give the exact change, and then whatever was less he could just put directly in his pocket not the register. So he told me this one day and how he walks out of there with pocketfuls of money

So basically when inventory did come, they knew something bad was going on. They investigated every one of us, and I know how you feel about not wanting to rat on people. I really wasn't involved in this ring, I did give a few packs away for free, but what the other people did was far worse. In the end we all lost are jobs and last time i went there was a whole new staff hahaha.
