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?

Apparently I should be fired for having an A Level exam to go to.
I worked part-time as a freezer monkey for a shop that shall be known as Weight-roose while I was at College.

A tnuc called Craig pulled a chair out from under me when I went to sit down and damaged my back so I couldn't go into work (doctors note and everything). Didn't stop them from putting me on a written warning for taking too much time off!

But then exam time came. I took A Level drama as a cruise through course. A Level drama exams take place at night so I had to book time off work to do it. Went to my manager and she point blank refused. She didn't believe that exams took place in the evening. I could have offered my tutor's number to provide confirmation. I could have provided witnesses to the fact that I had an exam. But to be honest, the shitty situation where they put me on a warning for having a damaged back, shutting me in the freezer while I'm stocking a trolley and forgetting to put me on the lunch list when I had turned up at 5am for a stocktake (therefore having to survive the rest of the shift on a Mars bar as I had no money on me) took the piss.

I quit before they had a chance to fire me for not turning up. And I didn't turn up for my two weeks notice either.
