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 a fit and proper person to be a solicitor
That was what the letter sent to me by the Law Society said.

As a bit of background; I'd been working my way through my solicitors training contract for 9 months. As is my habit, I keep a diary. Boss found said diary whilst looking through my office. Boss wasn't happy about contents of diary. Boss gave me option of resign or be sacked. So resign I did.

The Law Soc were rather perturbed by my boss' actions. Or at least, that's what I thought. So they launched an enquiry. During the course of it, it became clear that Ex-Boss had actually photocopied my diary (the bloated, doughfaced fuck). He sent that to the Law Soc. Law Soc adjudicator read it.

Now, I dunno what it was about my psyche that so disturbed the legal profession, and maybe I'm coming across as a little...bitter (particularly nowadays, when one can be sent to prison for murdering ones own children and STILL not be struck off). But for some reason, the Law Society decided, on the basis of my diary, that I was not a fit and proper person to be a solicitor.

Their exact words (which I've since had printed up onto a T Shirt) were "Mr Light is a rebellious and unstable young man".

How COOL an endorsement is that?!
