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?

Like so many poor youngsters, I ended up working briefly in a telesales job. The horrible cunts who employed me first tried to get us to write a list of people whom we knew and their home phone numbers, so that we could ring them up at home and try and flog our dreadful wares to them. After these lists were exhausted, we were asked to cold-call people and cajole them into buying product by any means possible.

I managed six whole weeks before they realised that I was shit; I found it exceedingly distasteful to call people at home and try and flog them crap, especially as it was something I wouldn't buy myself, and I didn't like the fact that a supervisor had to close all sales, thus stealing all the commission for themselves. I was 'let go' as the job clearly wasn't for me, although I'd managed to make a meagre amount of money from them which wasn't bad at the time, as I was still at school and living at home. Kept me in beer, fags and drugs at any rate.

I also managed to fuck up my boss's car, by driving it from the car park to the street when I had absolutely no idea what I was doing. I was only 16, after all.
