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?

Do as I do?
I'm a nice responsible fire-safety type person working for a local authority, so my job supposedly entails ensuring the safety of others.

I have scars down my right arm from the time I made weedkiller/sugar fireworks; My old room at my parents' house still has smoke-stains on the wall from my many youthful experiments with household combustibles; I regularly juggle with flaming clubs / sticks / pieces of furniture; I build bonfires that make the Towering Inferno look like a damp barbecue...

and then there's the matter of that little leprechaun who sits on my shoulder and reminds me constantly of how much fun it is to invite nice Mr Fire out for a play.

If they don't fire me, I'm going to end up firing them. Back to Broadmoor we go.

It might be long now, but it'll have burned away before you know it.
