This is a question Sacked

I've never been sacked (yet)... One company I worked for made everyone redundant on Valentine's Day. The boss handed out little envelopes. We all thought he'd bought us cards and were really touched.

...but I've never been sacked. What have you done that led to your dismissal? Are you still bitter, or was it a fair cop?

coffee is bad
I used to have a boring job in the mortgages department of a building society. We basically had to put some code into a form and write "redemption quote sent to customer" in the log of somebody`s account. 60 times a fucking hour. This was my first job after graduating from my piece of shit worthless arts degree, and it paid minimum wage, plus I was working in my inbred little home town with people who never went to uni.

They made the mistake of putting me right next to the coffee machine. coffee was only 20p a go, so me thought it would be a nice experiment to put 6 espressos in 1 cup, and to see how much coffee I could get through during the day. After a week or so I started to get the stomach pains and the shouty episodes with the folks at home, and all the papers on the desk at work became inextricably congealed with the laminate surface.

It took them 3 weeks to find all the comments I had written in people`s accounts. I`m not proud. But I`m not repentant either. Nobody should ever have to do that shit.
