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?

Not bitter but better off!
I used to work (for a very short time i.e. 8 weeks!) selling insurance from home. You got paid a basic salary of 12K a year and then made heaps more (allegedly!) on the very generous commission from insurance the "Public was falling over themselves to buy"

What the lying twunts failed to tell us gullible greed driven monkeys at the interview was that you had 2 months to make a minimum commission rate and failure to do so meant the previous month was added to the next creating some exponential figure unobtainable unless you worked 50 hours a day! Oh and you would face dismissal after a months notice of failure to perform!

Having managed to sell fuckall after 8 weeks of mainly lying in bed wanking till midday I called a halt to this career mangling shambles and got a job in a factory.

I told my team leader and area manager I quit and never looked back however.... they failed to tell HO and after a month I received a letter from HO informing me of my shite performance and giving me a months notice of impending dismissal, I had also received 3 months pay at this time!

Time dragged on and I received a further 2 months pay before being sacked! I later found out from one of the girls I met on the course that so many people quit the area manager was scared of losing his job as the turnover in personnel was so high so he never told HO, cheers mate.

Never did return the money I was overpaid!
