And don't forget the Most Important Reason:11. Failure to be a butt-kissing 'yes' person.Yes, loads of bosses say they appreciate an employee who has self-respect and that they don't like sycophants. And if you can believe this, there's a bridge in Brooklyn I'd love to sell you.
Yes I completely agree with that. And that's why I decided to work for myself. I'm sick and tired of all the BS working for somebody. I have too much respect for myself to stoop that low to kiss butt along with licking it clean.
THE BOTTON LINE: All those things are ok because at most companies,politics and favortisium are the rule of law. always was and always will be.
talk about horror stories, well I had a umpa lumpa ex-colleague who looks like a baboon sabotage my work, who told lies on me, walked into work every single day for 2 years and a half 15 to 20 minutes late, always went missing in action, did mediocre work but seemed to have been the best worker on earth according to my boss and others make my life miserable for the same amount of time, then conspired with another person to have me fired.but this seems to be the kind of worker one needs to be these days, all you have to do is kiss ass to qualify you as a good worker... guess that didn't qualify me,.........And somehow she always brought up my past history, not really sure what that was about, I was not the one with the history of having had screwed a married man.....more like being falsely accussed by someone who got caught with his john in his hand........Projection........always seems to get the best of us.
Another HUGE mistake to make at work that has gotten me fired more than once: Casual Fridays does NOT mean Pants Optional.
chasrusso - LOL!
tell your boss you don't work fridays and on monday you will always be late as you drink all weekend, and make sure the coffee is always fresh, and for lunch you need a 3 hour break, you will be fired
tell your boss i make the rules around here, so don't tell me what to do, that will do it
Think outside the box when it comes to finding employment. Companies are hiring people to work at home to cut costs. The website BestTopJobs has a FREE list of work at home jobs offered by real employers. I save on gas, lunches, clothing and day care by working as an employee at my home. Good luck!
Add to the list being constantly late - number one on my list. Reporting in late. Getting back from paid lunch hour late, Leaving that few minutes early every day. Ugh - and a quick exit from my company.
I can't believe those things will get you fired.......... thank you so much for that info........another grade school writer.................................
Ok, let's see... there used to be this TROLL of a woman I worked with that only bathed once a week.. you could wring the grease from her hair.. but she was 3 ft tall & 3 ft wide, so she played the 'disability' game the whole time she worked here, until she up & quit. Then we have a butt kisser who NEVER admits when she is wrong or makes a mistake, but is ALWAYS willing to point out when OTHERS make a mistake and ALWAYS goes out of her way to always be the first one done with any task.. UM are we like in school here or what??? OH yea, did I mention she is a registered sex offender & our home office & HR staff have NO idea of it??? and the management here thinks her rear is lined with GOLD.. its really sickening..
