10+ Bosses Share The Craziest Things Their Employees Did To Get Themselves Fired

Ever had an employee or coworker that was just insane?

I don’t mean clinically crazy, I mean that they were just awful to work with, and the attitude they showed didn’t add up to the kind of worker they were. Like, I once had a coworker who didn’t do anything correctly, and yet, somehow didn’t get fired. Until they pulled this huge blunder that was just unforgivable.

Well, apparently I’m not the only one who’s seen stuff like that happen. Just look at these people and their employees.

#1 Ernie

Had an employee named Ernie call in Monday morning saying his dad died over the weekend. I told to take all the time he needed.

Tuesday was the viewing, Wednesday was the funeral. Who shows up Wednesday….. Ernie’s dad… Ernie forgot his lunch. True story.


#2 Home Depot

I wasn’t the manager, but years ago when I worked at Home Depot, a couple idiots got fired for conducting a transaction involving a bag of weed (one buying it from the other) inside the store.

Instead of, you know, going outside to the huge vacant lot next to the store.


#3 Insurance company

I work for an insurance company. One of our sales agents told a guy “Hey, go f**k yourself” when the guy told him he didn’t want to pay whatever his premium quote was.

He got fired and walked out. My company is really cool in that we aren’t scripted, but we do draw the line at swearing at policy holders (DUH).


#4 Country Club

Worked at a Country Club. Huge outing with hundreds of people.

One of the caddies gets in a fight with another caddie and yells “I’ma cut you bitch!” and pulls out a blade.

That was his last loop.


#5 Bathroom sink.

My company put people up in hotel rooms when it was snowing pretty badly.

With of course the expectation you would work the following day cause they knew it would be busy.

One guy was somehow angry about that and decided to take a poo in his hotel rooms bathroom sink. He got fired and we got banned from the hotel.


#6 New employee

During induction on day one, each new hire had to spend some time with every department to see what they did.

New employee was more interested in talking about the problems she had with her son than learning about work.

Turns out the bottle of sprite she had been swigging from all day contained more gin than sprite.


#7 Restaurant GM

Restaurant GM came with the idea to have employees do an anonymous survey. Most replies were about how much the GM was a bully.

Fired… his own idea got him fired. That and he was a power hungry f**k-chop.


#8 Fantasy football transfer.

My supervisor punched another manager because he forgot to process his fantasy football transfer requests in time.

My workload increased considerably that day. Fun times.


#9 Late.

One guy was late 23 F**KING TIMES IN A 2 MONTH PERIOD. Hadn’t even been there a full 3 months. Instead of firing him, management suspended him for a week.

This idiot calls corporate and tells them that he’s been treated unfairly so the store manager and his department manager have to have a meeting with him and he shows up 15 minutes late to the meeting.

When he finally showed up they just fired him


#10 Source code.

Sold his company laptop with all our source code to a pawn shop in Vegas during a convention for drug money.
