How many jobs have you been sacked from?

I've worked since I was sixteen, I am now 31 years old and I've been sacked from eight jobs in my working life.

What about you?

    2 i guess,

    when i was 16 i was doing my 2 week work experience and in the 2nd and final week i got told to leave as i wasnt showing interest at all with the different people in the office.
    when i was 19 i got the sack because i brought coffee to my desk but my manager warned me a few days ago not to do it! was a sh1t summer temp job boring my brains out - glad i got sacked

    boom

    got sacked from homebase after an argument with the manager.
    before he sacked me i gave away roughly 4 grands worth of equipment to people at christmas.

    mcdonalds when i was about 18 after i had a punch up with the manager and hit him with a metal chair... technically i walked out on the job but i also got sacked.

    evening echo paper round i got sacked from when i was about 14 after i got mugged. nice company!

    sacked from my job as a cleaner at the hsbc tower block in southend after a very stupid and serious error of judgement on my part.

    sacked from my role as designer at insure and go, the reason given was that my work wasnt good enough and yet in my review i was given praise for my great work... so i havent got a clue as to why i was really sacked

    peter pans playground i was sacked after about 5 mins starting the job.
    was put in charge of the water log ride so i went on it for a laugh and when i got to the bottom the manager gave me instant dismissal..... kill joys.
    thats the shortest ive ever had a job for.

    the great bit about that was when i sat on a council meeting about an event i was organising involving shutting the seafront, i got to tell the owner of the funpark etc what to do... felt good having more power for a change haha

    I got sacked from my forst job 10 years ago aat a garden centre. Was very hard work (digging, carrying etc) and I got the princely sum of £2.10 per hour

    Sacked for being lazy and smoking on the job, although they just said they 'had no more work for me' (and replaed me the next day with a lad I knew lol)

    ive never been sacked yet, touch wood
    but a good friend of mine got sacked from M+S for drawing a face on one of the clothes dummies and dancing with it around the stock room-in a comical way not a very lonly single person way.

    his dad was called into the disciplinary meeting-he was only young-and when they played the CCTV tape of him doing it his dad just p1ssed himself and walked out laughing!!!!

    Once from an admin job. They used a thinly veiled excuse about typing errors, when in reality I had gotton my nose and tongue pierced and I dont think it gave the company the image it wanted. I had just got myself my first flat and I cried all the way home. W@nkers!
