Top 10 People Who Were Too Pretty For Their Own Good
Most folks who get fired do so for mundane reasons—theft, tardiness, or just plain not doing their jobs well. 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.
Text version: http://www.toptenz.net/10-heinous-and-hilarious-reasons-people-were-fired.php
10. Cheering Under the Influence
9. Biting a Dunkin’ Donuts worker
8. Singing a Bob Marley Song, Fighting Demons
7. Using the Office Copier…to Make Counterfeit Currency
6. Getting That Twix at Any Cost
5. Stomping on the American flag
4. Stuffing Students in the Trunk for a Snack Run
3. Peeing in an elevator
2. Photographing an X-Ray of Failed Sexcapades
1. Letting a Playboy Model “Earn Her Wings”
Does any body else watch these videos with closed caption on? A lot of times the caption will be different than what Simon is saying, sometimes it'll be better. In this one Simon says X-Rays but the closed caption says "Sex-Rays".
I was fired once for throwing away barbecue sauce that had a few dead grasshoppers in it. We had just paid for a pesticide treatment due to thousands of grasshoppers on the building so they were assumed, by me to be covered in poison. The owner said I was a waist full manager. I love right to work states.
The most unusual and unlucky firing where I worked was a guy who went on vacation to the Netherlands and ended up in a news report on people who go to the Netherlands to do drugs. Not a young guy either.
Number 2 sounds ridiculous but it's absolutely true and richly deserved to be terminated. I work in patient information security at the healthcare provider I work for and what the nurses did is a BIIIIIIIG no no. No buts, no ifs, you're fired. Its a very serious violation of HIPPA regulations which deservedly led to their termination. The healthcare provider would also have had to pay a very hefty fine and more than likely more in compensation. Nurses and especially doctors like to think they are indispensable, but for things like that. No. No you're not.
My ex-fiancé got fired as a Starbucks store manager for teabagging his regional manager while they were all drunk in a hotel room at a conference... 😂 (the regional manager was passed out and they took pix, I guess!)
I was once fired for stealing boxes on my day off. The real story is the Friday night. A friend of mine got some weed to sell but ended up smoking it all. Hilarious hijinks followed. We ended up in a big fight in front of the entire neighborhood. I beat a neighborhood bully up. Everyone cheered for me. My friend ended up in rehab and I moved away.
Most modern copiers now detect the copying of currency and the machines lock down requiring the manufacturer to manually release all functions AFTER they investigate. So kids, don't try this at home. 😁
jimon8998 Americans such as myself nomatter what have great pride in our flag. We see that flag represent our history, our tragedies such as 911, our greatest moments such as putting the man on the moon, our future and everything each and everyone as one of us in one way or another. When I hear a story from a veteran of any war we see it as our story as if told from a relative. The flag does not represent land or politics but we the people. People have died and killed for it. We have suffered and endured for it we have prospered for it. I travel 48 states for work and been to 49 in total and I see much diversity and yet we are all one thing, Americans. Our life's, story's, moments, thoughts, families, history, greatest triumphs, and this ever so diverse land is all put in one this, the American flag. And anyone who disrespects that flag disrespects everything it ever has, is, will stand for. And that is disrespectful. So yes we Americans at end of the day love our flag. After all we Americans are more patriotic than any other country by a very long shot.
The flag stomping was brilliant. He proved to his students that freedom of speech is a fallacy while trying to prove that it's real. He should have received a raise and praise, probably the most real lesson his students will ever learn at school.
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.
Re 09:13 : Hahahaha I always try to be a thoughtful and considerate fellow human being, but when passive-aggressiveness feels necessary... this might be the best tactic I have heard of after hiding a fish under the car seat.
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'.
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.
