15 Most Ridiculous Ways to Lose Your Job

Zac Frank and Tania Khadder

Sometimes, a person will lose their job through no fault of their own. The whims of a psychotic boss, an economy in shambles, or a simple misunderstanding can have an otherwise satisfactory employee packing up his or her cubicle.

Other times, a person will lose their job because they have done something so incredibly foolish, you wonder how they ever got the job in the first place.

This article is about those people.

    Okay, so the article does show how some people violate "Good Sense", and, generally, act stupid. Why is it only WORKERS, who are profiled, here? I had a former manager, who, openly, stole, employees property, then insisted that his victims NOT report his actionsd, to the police, or they would be fired. This same manager then liked to pull the stunt of reporting workers as "absent", when up to 75 people SAW the worker, during the day, and interracted with the worker. When questioned, all the boss would say was "Whose in control, here? The workers, or me? If I say that a worker was NOT on-duty, and not present, then my word should be good enough, to dock pay". Yes, people, this DOES happen, everyday. Why not do this same type of article, on EMPLOYERS?

    I've lived in Florida since 1985 and I already knew poor Jim Piculas was fired for "witchcraft." This is downright scary. I'm a Christian, and I study the Bible (probably not as much as I should), and I know God takes a very dim view of witchcraft. But I don't see how any sane human being could classify this as "witchcraft." It's a lot of practice, coordination, and timing. Nothing REALLY "disappears."

    He was fired for doing a magic trick?! So, what are the Harry Potter books all about? There are actual spells in those books, and I'm sure the school has those books in their library. If they want to get wizardry out of the school system, chuck the HP books, not the slight-of-hand stricks.

    Moral of the story for #5 is be honest!! This employee was obviously stealing from his employer, since he received payment for work he did not do.

    Good article, but felt that it was more appropriate for U-tube since the events were so bazaar. The comments were generally accurate to tell people to shape up, but a couple of them were a bit like telling people to go ahead and do these perverted, lazy, unlawful, or kindergarten stunts as long as you don't get caught. Teens and young adults, particularly, should understand that this stuff isn't funny, and you (Admin Secrets staff) shouldn't pretend that it is either. I agree with jtbthompson. This site should be promoting adult behavior for Administrators, not promoting juvenile stunts.

    A definite thumbs up! All of these were good stories to share with others. Believe it or not there are folks out there that believe they just cannot get fired for doing things like this. I am amazed at how nieve some folks are.

    I don't believe the comment about Bill O'Reilly and the very old video clip has any place on Admin Secrets. Let's stick to business and not opinions.

    Sorry, but no sympathy here for the victim of this. People need to use some common sense and consider the consequences of their actions. This case sounds crazily similiar to an elementary school recess "dare you". Too bad the young lady died, but I cannot see how the DJ's can remotely be blamed for this.

    While that is gross, it's not at all surprising. I've worked in the food service industry for 15 years now. Some of the filthiest, nastiest slobs work in restaurants (fast food, casual dining, expensive); I've worked in all kinds of restaurants and seen all kinds of disgusting behaviors. I'm truly surprised more Americans don't come down with food poisoning; I've seen people go straight from sweeping the floor to making sandwiches for customers (no hand washing in sight). Even managers don't say anything when they see employees change gloves without washing their hands.
