A friend of mine told me a funny story yesterday, about how they were expelled from an expensive private school 'cause (when on a finally warning), the teacher asked them why they hadn't done their homework. 'I forgot' they replied, but the teacher misheard it as 'f*ck off'. So that was it.

Got me thinking about sackings too. Reminded me of a fella who worked on Brighton pier for a few days (I worked there as a student) - they 'let him go' after he was found putting toddlers onto the little water ride one-handed, cigarette in the other hand.

At my school you could be suspended for swearing. Second offense was expulsion. The headmaster was a sadist. I've never hated anyone in my life except him. I think he hated children. It's alright though. I've tracked him down. Ha. Ha. Ha. HA HA A HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA AMUAHA HA HA HAMUA MUAHA HA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I know of one guy who got fired because he was caught with a fellow employee in the women's washroom. Turns out it wasn't the first time he was caught, either.

I was fired for being a klutz - the exact word they used. During high school, a friend and I tried to earn extra money as wait staff for banquets and wedding receptions. We were paid $1.00/hour in cash at the end of each shift. I was horrible at the job and dropped more dinners than I served. I was relegated to pouring coffee my last 2 nights. When they fired me, they said they couldn't afford the damage I had caused and they prodeeded to pay me for the next 5 nights. To get the money, I had to promise never to show up for work again. It was a hard decision but I finally agreed.

They sacked Billy because she didn't want to say she was in a lesbian relationship.

Okay - that makes no sense at all. But hey - whatever floats one's boat....

When I was about 21 I got fired for being in the work toilets with the work experience girl. Didn't really matter as we continued on in the park under the harbour bridge. I heard that the the work experience program was cancelled after that episode.

Paid to not show up! I might have to tell my boss about that one!
