We've all been there. You make a mistake at work, and either you're looking over your shoulder for the next month making sure no one noticed, or you get called in to talk to HR to say you've been fired. Either way, you're terrified. It's basically the adult version of being called to the Principal's office.
Your stomach is in knots, you want to pass out, or just call your mom and tell her that you need her help updating your resume. And then... nothing happens. You either get off with a warning, or it's totally unrelated. The relief is everything you needed. There's nothing quite like it.
Well, we turned to Reddit to ask for their best "I almost got fired" stories, and they're hilarious. Stories about people accidentally drugging themselves at work, getting the cops called on them for "terrorism," or losing $2,000 from counterfeit bills in one transaction. You'll be thanking whatever god you believe in that this didn't happen to you.
