I once got fired for going into work on 6 xanax sticks...All I remember of that day was peeing in not one but several fish tanks, which mind you were in the middle of the store, and eating these bird treat things that were like this honey covered in seed...Really don't ask. Cause I'm not sure lol. Then another time I got fired from the answering service that I was working at for getting stoned. Now mind you I can function pretty well high well at that job anyway. But I'm not talking about a little stoned I mean REALLY REALLY stoned. Talking about smoking an ounce of some really nice g13xhaze in about a day and half at the most and on top of that eating half a tray of reggie brownies that had an ounce thrown into them lol. I was so stoned I sat there and stared at a garbage can and got sent home...Also I was out side smoking j's that were just completely filled out big bambu's. It was probably the highest I've ever been from weed. I then got hired back to that job a month later LOL. Then went in on two separate occasions once on 3 40mg methadose biscuits (honestly still not sure how I didn't die that time lol), and then another time on a quarter ounce of mushrooms both times I actually didn't get fired or sent home for either of those lol. That was strange now that I think about it lol.

Getting fired for dancing too much is just funny.

Hence why I no longer work at spencer's.
 
 
That's got to be the most amazing thing on your termination papers. I personally would poster-size them and frame them on my wall as a trophy.
 
But that's just me. Pleased

I think, by law, that if you call a reference, they cannot say horrible things about you. Besides, while he is interviewing, they will most likely ask why he was fired and if he explains why, the interviewer may not even bother with that reference. Is there someone else he could list as his reference there?
Don't judge me monkey...

It's possible that he gets fired if he looks for a job on the current company's time; but if it' his personal time, he can do whatever he wants, just what I thought ....

He looks for jobs at night after work. If he has to call people during the day, he calls on his lunch break (which he is not getting paid for, so it's not company time).

Basically the place is full of dickwads who are very manipulative and mislead their employees. He went on an interview the day he was fired (basically what this whole story is about), and he told the interviewer what happened (since he had to explain that he was no longer employed there) and they thought it was whack too.

That is true, but on the other hand, companies have a kind of secret code language that they use to say bad things in nice words.
For example, "he was a very creative employee" usually means that you're chaotic, or always late.

I'm so happy I live in a country where employees have more rights than employers. It's very difficult to fire someone here.
You'll get at least a month's notice, so nobody can put you out in the street just like that, and you need a damn good reason to fire someone.

This means that I never actually got fired - the only time I had to leave a job against my will, was because my contract ended and they didn't want to renew it for some crappy reason.

You know what, it might just have opened an opportunity for your b/f looking for a new job full-time. You or your b/f might not see it now, but it's a good thing that he no longer works for that company. Guess I'm a glass half full kind of gal...:-)
