    I have ever been technically fired twice.

    The first was when i was a seasonal employee at the city of Calgary and they had this amazing S&A (sick and absentyism) policy where you got paid 90% of your daily wage. I was 19-20 making $15-16/hr when i was "sick". Long story short, i had 30-35 sick days in 4 months and we only worked mon-thursday and i wasent evenfired just a mutual termination. That was a good summer

    The second time was when i used to work for Calgary Honda. It was the following week after the autoshow and for those that dont or havent worked in the automotive industry. If you're not on shift at the dealership, you're at the auto show. Which wasent the problem. Where i got fired was the week after when the dealership announced a "private sale" and all staff had to work monday- thursday from 9am to 9pm. When i saw the management go home early, i deemed this unfair and showed up for my regular shift at 1pm the following day not 9am as i was told. It is not that i wasent performing, i think it was to make an example of someone.

    When I first started out doing web design I worked for a web shop here in Calgary and one day at noon I was sitting at my desk minding my own business doing my work and a co-worker asked me if I wanted to go to a movie instead of working. There were 10 people already going (half the office) so I said yes. When I got back they gave me a week's pay and sent me and another guy home. Total bullshit.

    So instead I took an offer I had previously turned down to go to New York and work at Pepsi's head office doing some Hyperion database management for 125% of my previous pay. I was contracting through another company and Pepsi was paying for my hotel/car so at the end of the project I didn't want to spend $4000 a month on a hotel and $1500 a month on a car so I came back to Canada to wait for another project to start. I did a few interviews but the company I was contracting through called to say I wasn't allowed to leave the country and I was fired. Total bullshit.

    The following day one of my interviews called me back and said they wanted me to go to Manhattan immediately to do some database stuff for them at over 200% of my pay with the other contracting company. If that company had waited 1 more day to fire me, they would have gotten over $10,000 as a finder's fee from me being hired and also a cut of my hourly pay........motherfuckers.

    After that project I came back to Calgary and almost got fired at my next job but never did. A co-worker was taking those keyboard cleaner air cans and filling small Zip-lock bags with them.......if you turn the can upside down and spray it into the bag, then seal the bag, it'll get VERY cold and expand like a balloon. He had an inflatable globe on his desk so I convinced him to do it with the globe......nothing happened. So he laid it on his desk and went back to work until....KA-FUCKING-BOOM! This thing exploded like a bomb and one of the other guys had a freak out that his hearing had been affected.

    I'm happy to say I work for myself now, no more getting fired. Though it seems to always work out for me.

    Never been fired or even come close but I worked at RONA for 3 years in various departments, and I can't believe you got fired for leaning on a counter. We did WAY worse things at RONA and it wasn't a problem. When it was super quiet we were allowed to read, lean on the counter, etc. One day I even made a throne out of windshield washer fluid boxes and sat there when it was quiet. I would bet anything there was a reason other than your counter leaning, even if you weren't aware of it.
    Yeah, ages ago when I worked at Home Depot in the tool rental department it was damn near impossible to get fired for anything less than decking a customer. I discovered that if you tied off one end of the spooled plastic sheath that was used to cover the paint gun hoses, you could blow it up like a giant long-ass balloon with the air compressor - and if you kept inflating, that fucker would pop like a gunshot. We used to run them into the paint department (they were 25ft long or so) after-hours and scare the heck out of the paint staff while they were doing cleanup.

    We had managers walk in on guys having nailgun fights in the back room, a couple guys got written up but no firings.

    We had an open sewer drain under the fume hood, and one of the girls that worked there disposed of a solid 10 gallons of used laquer thinner in it - but the thinner just floated on top of the water in the drain and the fume hood fan kept it from stinking like thinner. I was burning carpet thread out of a metal brush under the hood afterwards, a spark went into the grate and I suddenly had a goddamn inferno in there. Again, nobody fired.

    I think the only time I even got a talking-to was when I wrote off six rolls of green painter's tape, grabbed an extension ladder, and made a floor-to-ceiling rendition of Trogdor the Burninator on the back wall. Good times.

    Yeah, HD is pretty much impossible to get fired from. Worked in the flooring department so I actually had to work unlike the lazy people in tool rental. Busted a ton of shit learning to drive the forklift in the aisles. Best was taking broken tile to the back and playing basketball into the metal dumpsters to smash them. That and taking home demo carpets that would be going in the trash. I had a nice $600+ carpet for under my truck and still have another in my room. Nothing wrong with them except the say DEMO on the bottom.

    Exactly this!!

    If i was running late, id run in, swipe my card, then dick around in the change room, then walk to my station.

    PLUS, the thing that really pisses me off, is that my section couldn't start working until at least 1 hr into the shift, becuase we had to wait on other sections to get shit done first, to bring to us to finish it up.
    All i did for the first hour every day was drag a shovel around, trying to look busy.
    So much BS.

    I think the one that got me the most complaints was during a management meeting, where we were all admiring the new boardroom table that we were sitting at. I mentioned that I had "broke it in" the weekend before, and it disgusted a lot of people in the meeting. Some of the managers are mormons, christians, and they were not pleased at all.

    Seriously though, new boardroom table. You have to break that shit in.
    rage2 is fucking gangster. LOL
