The employees in the list below do not fall into that category. Rather, their hilariously ill-advised or awful actions on the job left no doubt that these employees had been fired for reasons well outside of the norm.

Xrays without dedicated name,id# or other event are no HIPA Violation. In fact many safety slides and videos I've had in industrial jobs used such items to instill a safer work ethic to prevent such injuries.

The only people cops care more about than other cops is donut workers for they are sacred to the cops, you do not ever mess with the donut worker or else. No FOP card for you ever! And you will forever receive the distrust of all law enforcement. World wide

Number 4 should not have been a fireable offense. I would almost bet anything that his employer wanted him out before the vending machine incident happened. Sadly, No2. Something similar happened to Joan Rivers moment before here untimely death. Member of surgical teams had made videos and made comedic remarks before and Joan was put to sleep. There actions were discovered and brought to public in a laws suit which they settled for undisclosed amount of money.

#4... 50 years ago I was one of eight people - a teacher and 7 students - in a Karmann Ghia. We were going to a UC Berkeley math lecture by the legendary George Polya. I was the one pressed against the rear window. Each of the seats, except the driver's, had lap sitters. All went well and we learned about diophantine equations. Of course, I don't remember what we learned about them but I do remember how much trouble the sporty little car had going up hills with 8 people inside.

Yeah. One of my young, male, untenured colleagues at a school flouted the rules repeatedly. He had first graders run sequential laps on the black top in 100 plus degree heat (even though recess was SUPPOSED to be inside the classroom due to the excessive heat. He brought an Egyptian lizard to that class; it got away and he left his class of first graders ALONE in the room while he ran through the neighborhood trying to catch it. He sexually assaulted a senior female teacher in front of witnesses. Was he fired? No. His MOTHER was a member of the school board. He WAS, however, transferred to another site where he attempted to sexually assault yet another older female teacher, again in front of witnesses, ,and saying that his mother was on the school board and he could do what he wanted This time, he was fired. Not for what he did, but because he embarrassed the administration with his braggadocio. His mama stayed on the board for some time after.

I actually did have a medical condition that would cause sudden and powerful urges to urinate, usually without enough time to reach a bathroom. Rather than pissing in an elevator, I took to keeping a jar with me with a tight lid to use. I was caught once by a cop but when he saw I was peeing in a jar, not on the sidewalk, he let me go.

Thats strange the police dog wasn't given a promotion and a gun. Instead they fired him. That is species racism at its best. Any human that is a police officer that assults other people, (civilians) gets a promotion or bonus of some type. Oh wait, the dog officer doing the assult was not caught on video. Never mind, thats why the dog was actually fired.

So it's fine for police in America to spray bullets at civilians but as soon as they piss in a lift (yeah I'm calling it a lift, deal with it) they're fired for, what was it, 'unbecoming conduct'. ... Okay.

How many people remember cigarette machines? One ate my money one time. I rocked it back and forth until it tipped over on its face, and several packs spewed out. I grabbed the one I had paid for and beat feet with a security guard chasing me. I got away clean.

There was a security officer at a casino who was fired because he was at his post and another officers wife dropped off a huge bag of gummy bears for her husband. This officer then decided to eat the entire bag with surveillance watching and recording the whole thing. He was fired for theft.

My favourite sacking is the software engineer who outsourced his own job to India and paid the Indian company with a fraction of his weekly wage meaning he could spend all day at work watching porn/youtube etc and still take home a decent wage. He was only caught out when the company he worked for audited the server logs and noticed all the insecure connections to the Indian i.p. address. Oh yeah, did I mention it was classified work as well lol.

The Supeme Court ruled that burning the flag is legal; therefore stomping on it must be, too. He should have fought the terminstion. He would have won. Of course maybe some fringe group threatened his life.

As a school is a government run institution I am fairly sure that firing someone for expressing their freedom of speech is unconstitutional. (remember freedom of speech is something that covers government action and reaction, not the reaction of private citizens, so a private employer might be able to get away with such a firing)
Austin (10 months ago)
That nurse firing is such BS. If there's no identifying information, there's no problem. Emergency department rectal object x-rays are the highlight of working in the ED! She should have posted to Reddit and not Facebook though. Probs reported by an upright colleague. That sucks

Srsly Whats up with those americans and their love for her flag? I always thought, that freedom of speech guarantees, exactly, that one can do whatever he wants to the flag. Why having this amandement in the first Place, when only the rich and powerful can use it to their advantage...
Josephus Mutzenbacher (9 months ago)
how you do 666 Well... You can't have it both ways. When you have a contract, then you give up some freedom. And such a contract does work in both ways as well. Alas, you are right, regarding that freedom does work in both ways. Also I didn't say that the government should have forced the school's hand, I'm just saying that the firing of that guy was unconstitutional.
how you do 666 (9 months ago)
Josephus Mutzenbacher so you think the government should have forcibly madevtge school keep him? Sounds very fascist to me. He had the freedom to do what he did, and the school had the freedom to terminate his contractl, freedom doesn't work one way kiddo.
Why would you not show the video that go with each of the story not enough money or what??it would get more views
RixAuzr (10 months ago)
My civics teacher in my senior year of high school would bring the class outside to a wide open area, hold up a large American flag on a wooden pole, and set it on fire, swinging it back and forth. After a few swings, he would put the fire out and much to the relief of some of the students, the flag would be perfectly fine. He would douse the flag in a fire retardant liquid ahead of time to pull off this crazy stunt. Eventually, the school was getting complaints from parents, so he was forced to stop doing it in subsequent school years, but he was never fired.

The teacher firing is kinda crap. Even after the guy swallowed his pride and expressed remorse he still got fired and for what....guess flag is more important than free speech. You don't get to talk about free speech then and not sound like a total hypocrite.
how you do 666 (9 months ago)
So we should use the fist of the government to forcibly make the school board not fire him? Sounds very fascist to me. Freedom goes both ways kido, he had the freedom to spit on the pride of the US without legal consequences, and the school had the freedom to terminate his job because they didn't appreciate the gesture.
