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?

Never work with children, animals or stoned friends...
I agreed to take a job in a small resort town in the South Island of NZ after a school friend decided to move from France with her English husband. I uprooted my whole life in just 10 days and moved my 31 year old self from the big smoke to a place with 1234 permanent residents (we all worked at least 4 jobs to get everything done). Reader Digest condensed version of the story later...I had been working 70 hour weeks, split-shift fucked up rosters and a large ginger woman 'accidentally' broke my right arm in the middle of a perfectly ordinary lunch service. As I was duty manager, supervisor, waitress, bartender, guidance counsellor etc etc I carried on working until my 2 young staff members were picked up by their parents.

When I rang my best friend (the owner of the bar and my boss) to explain that she needed to cover the evening shift while I had my arm put in plaster, she informed me that she was seperating from her husband, shagging the lawn-mower guy, I was an unreliable employee and should stop making shit up.

We don't have quite so many tea parties and chats any more (stupid, stoned, greedy and ultimately bankrupted single bitch!#@@#!)

I'm not bitter. Really.
