If you were to say to us that modern employers often have far too much power over their workforce, we'd agree. We'd also agree that some workplaces are too quick to fire their staff over minor matters.
Today, though, we aren't looking at those employers or workplaces. We're examining a bunch of employees who are so foolish that they really do deserve to lose their jobs. Come and take a look at them with us, they'll all give you a laugh—but just for once, they're going to have you sympathizing with management and not with the workforce.
1. Needs A Better Plan To Be A Star
We sympathize with not wanting to work at McDonald's, we really do but this is not the way to make your big break in entertainment.
2. The Human Embodiment Of Snail Mail
If you wondered why we all switched from the postal service to email, this goes a long way to explaining it. We get that it's a tiring job but no, just no.
3. The Depth Of Fashion
If your job is to pose the mannequins in the store window, it's a good idea to pose them in a way that suggests your store is a nice place to be. Don't do this.
4. Putting Off That Visit To Burger King
Yes, this is apparently a Burger King employee enjoying a selfie as he stands on two pails of lettuce that should be used in the burgers. We hope that they weren't though.
5. Epic Fail Leads To Firing
We can think of worse things than getting fired for seeing a concert, but really, it's a good idea to stay out of press photographs when you call off work.
6. Please, Somebody Stop Him
Most of these slides show people being foolish and getting fired, but this one shows somebody who is being dangerous and someone who needs firing yesterday.
7. The Career Cat-astrophe
Yes, in a world where the internet is powered by cat memes, you can't even joke about microwaving a cat. We can see why this might upset people too.
8. You Have To Dress Appropriately
We admire this young man's dedication to duty in turning up with his shirt off to work, but we still wouldn't want to eat there.
9. You Have To Check The Whole Page
This is what happens when your proofreading staff only examine each individual printed sheet rather than the entire printed page. Better to take a little more time, we think.
10. Thanks For Nothing Parcel People
When you're trying to keep things a secret and you explain this in the box they give you for delivery instructions... you don't expect them to print the secret on the box.
11. When McDonald's Gives Up Completely
When you make a Filet-O-Fish so badly that you put the cheese outside of the bun and melt it, you are not telling a great story of what it's like to work at McD's.
12. Sometimes It's Best Just To Accept Things
Managers are managers because they have to make the right decisions for the business. Even when those decisions are no fun. This guy is going too far to annoy his boss.
13. Spelling Remains An Important Work Skill
We know that some words are hard to spell but there's no excuse for "chicken poopers" is there? Back to school for this employee.
14. No Sympathy For This Lady
You can't blame an employer for saying goodbye to someone who thinks it's funny to joke about a recent terrorist attack, can you?
15. You Have One Job
This one is just baffling. Why would anyone go to the trouble to create this as a joke? At the same time, why would any printer hand write an advert?
They're funny for sure but you can see why their employers might want to part company with them too.
