This is a question Why should you be fired from your job?

I spent three years "working" in the Ministry of Agriculture carefully crafting projectiles out of folded paper and drawing pins that I would then fire at colleagues with an elastic band. On discovering I'd been conducting all-out warfare when I should really have been in a field counting cows, I was asked to "reconsider my career options" outside the service.

Why, then, should you be fired from your job?

Besides surfing?
I worked for a company for 5 and a half years. Under no supervision and not really giving a toss I started slacking. I did no work, I came in, surfed the net, tried to beat my high score on Tetris and then went home. I worked about 3 hours each week. During this time I got a pay-rise and a bonus almost unheard of within the company.

I left. Not because I was asked to but because they weren't paying me enough! For doing no work. Even now I'm amazed at my own brass balls for holding the company to ransom over my salary. I got another job and true to form I did no work there either. Only difference was a lack of web access. So I wrote a novel instead. Whilst pretending to write emails, I produced an 82 thousand word novel.

When that contract ended after 10 months, my old company recruited me and I came back with 50% increase in salary. A year later, I'm still here. Still doing no work. The only thing that has changed is that I visit different web-sites. Next performance review I'm tempted to ask for a pay-rise.
