'I left pool noodles outside on accident': 20+ Confounding reasons people got fired

These people couldn't believe what they were hearing when their bosses told them they were fired . That's because these workers were let go for some pretty off-the-wall reasons. The usual reasons people are fired are things like repeated latenesses, complaints from customers, talking back to management, or being put on a PIP (performance improvement plan) without improving. Most companies try to avoid firing people if possible, but sometimes it's avoidable. At least you're not the person who go…

Employee gets fired for taking recycled computer mouse nobody was using: 'It’s against company policy to take things from the electronics bin'

Employee gets fired for taking recycled computer mouse nobody was using: 'It’s against company policy to take things from the electronics bin'

There is absolutely no reason why this employee actually needed to be fired over this. First of all, the company policy about taking recycled supplies from the electronics bin was simply unclear and unenforced. Why suddenly enforce it now? This employee took his sister to the office and was showing her around when they came across the electronics bin. The Redditor acknowledged that most employees take leftover supplies from the bin all the time, so when his sister inquired about an unused compu…

'Boss doesn't like my new email address': Newly-fired remote worker creates petty email address to taunt ex-boss

'Boss doesn't like my new email address': Newly-fired remote worker creates petty email address to taunt ex-boss

This person unlocked a whole new level of taunting---and the person they're taunting is their ex-boss. No matter the circumstances, being fired from a job always stings. For the boss, it's as easy as letting an employee go, and never seeing them again. There are no consequences to deal with for higher-ups! But for an employee, it means suddenly not knowing if you can pay rent this month or afford to buy groceries. It sends an employee's life into a tailspin, and no one else is held accountable…

Guy gets fired after six weeks, charges company hundreds to get their equipment back: 'It was very liberating for me'

Guy gets fired after six weeks, charges company hundreds to get their equipment back: 'It was very liberating for me'

This former employee refused to go quietly. Unfortunately, he was let go after just six weeks at the company due to sudden mid-quarter layoffs. That meant with such little time at the company, he would not be able to put this on his resume as such a brief stint there most certainly would raise eyebrows rather than help him find work elsewhere. This, along with poor management and a toxic work environment, led him to ensure that his final acts would be petty. When he was asked to return his work…

Hotel worker fired for using multiple guests' credit card information: '[His] manager just exploded in anger'

Hotel worker fired for using multiple guests' credit card information: '[His] manager just exploded in anger'

This employee's extracurricular activities were not a good look for the hotel's reputation. What's particularly funny about this story of an unprofessional employee getting justly fired is that it wasn't a coworker or manager who figured out what he was doing. In fact, it was another front desk agent at a totally different hotel. This agent was contacted by the bad employee, who was trying to book a 20-day stay using someone else's credit card information. The agent started to sense that someth…

Web developer gets former client fired after she spread lies: ‘This director [had] been slandering me to MY OWN FAMILY’

Web developer gets former client fired after she spread lies: ‘This director [had] been slandering me to MY OWN FAMILY’

There is a reason why kids are taught not to talk about people behind their backs. Of course, we do it anyway, but in professional settings, it almost always comes back to bite you in the behind. So when this director of a nonprofit decided to spread rumors about the web developer she worked with and to blame him for various problems she had, of course karma came back to rear its head. Not only was this woman slandering the web developer’s name, but he ended up finding out through family member…

'[He] has been fired for stealing pancakes': 30 Foolish reasons workers got fired

You can push the limits all you want, but you'd better be prepared for the consequences. Some people work at the same place for so long that they get a little too comfortable. They start to feel immune to workplace rules and regulations. If you catch them bending the rules, they'll probably just give you a wink and a nudge because they think the higher-ups will have their back. Having friends in high places does help, certainly. But some people get fired for the silliest reasons anyway. For one…
