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?

One the other hand
Many years later, I found myself working for a Reanult dealership, where I was generally considered the star service bloke cos I was VERY good at empathising with customers who'd spend 20 minutes attacking me (sometimes physically) because of other people's shoddy work, and making them happily sit with a cup of coffee for yet another two hours while we did even more unneccesary work to their car at their expense.

Anyway, I got head-hunted for a much better motor trade job, and informed the service manager that I'd be leaving. he tried to get me to stay, but I told him my mind was made up, so he was very nice about it and said he sort out my notice and leaving date. 4 weeks of badgering, and he'd done nothing so I wandered up to see the general manager (who everyone was scared of an thought was a cunt apart from me - he seemed to like me in a non bum-love way) and told him. he said if I wanted to leave there and then I could, and he'd sort out that I got paid 4 weeks notice from then. Seeing as he was so smashingly co-operative, I worked through to the end of the day so's to not leave the department a man down.
At the end of the day, the general manager came over and thanked me for my efforts, and said that if I found I wanted to come back to just give him a call and he'd sort it for me. Whic, again, was very nice of him. Then he marched into the service manager's office and shouted a bit about nothing in particular. So I left, and went off to my new job, and got two pay checks that month. I called in on payday when passing to say hi and see the accounts people for my P45, and found the service manager had been sacked. Which was a bit of a shame, cos he was actually a nice bloke.

So there's no point to that story, apart from I didn't rob them, and I'm actually quite a nice bloke actually. Alright?
