If you’ve ever been a manager, you know it can be a pretty thankless job. A bunch of managers and supervisors took to Reddit to share times when they had to fire employees on the spot for unprofessional behavior. Beware: cringe-worthy stories ahead.
“He slashed my tire after I told him to go work instead of sitting in the break room.” @SgtDefective2
Man, being a manager is riskier than we thought.
“I gave my secretary a document that I wanted incorporated into a letter I had written, and she hucked the document like a frisbee into her trashcan. It was literally my only copy so I had to walk over and fish it out. That was her last day.” @SandmanD2
That’s one way to communicate with your boss…
“I once had an employee snap chatting as he drove an ambulance with a crew member and patient in the back, through an intersection during a red light.” @kingforpres
We’re crossing our fingers that this person isn’t driving an ambulance anymore!
“I had an employee who got drunk on her lunch break, flipped her car, went to jail, mugshot with our company logo on her shirt. Perfect.” @DrCubby07
Wow, and for us a memorable lunch break is going to Chipotle.
“I work in pizza delivery and we had a guy back in the day (fellow manager) who tried to shut down the store 5 hours before the time that corporate set for us to close. He clocked every person out and sent them home and then just refused to take the phone calls or anything like that.” @MAZ0N
File this one under failed mutinies.
