Kitty Litter
I was working in a little Amusement Park in Melrose Park, IL. At the time, I was 16, with my first job ever. I came to work on time, did everything I could possibly do, and even stay late after work to help out. One day I was talking to a couple of my friends at lunch, and I didn't realize that my boss came in. We were discussing what we thought of working at the amusement park. Clueless as I was about my bosses presence, I got up, and said that Kiddie Land should be named Kitty Litter because the place is a dump and BEEP BEEP BEEP. Everyone froze, and I slowly turned around to face my boss who was completely furious! And thats how I got fired. :)

customer is always right
i worked for jcpenney in the catalog department. i worked there for about 2 weeks before the "big day". my job was to handle customer returns, customer catalog orders, payments, gift wrapping, and miscellaneous duties. it was a very very busy time of year. i handled many customer complaints that day. it seemed like never ending. one customer came to the counter. looked about 65 yrs old, female, reality, she was probably 47, she barely reached 4 and 1/2 feet high. she looked very red in the face from waiting soo long in line. before i could say "good afternoon ma'am how can i help you?" she threw her credit card at me. it hit me in the face. she started to yell at me. i could barely understand her complaint. i asked her politely to "speak slowly and calmly" so i can help her." she was very impatient. she repeated slower but sarcasticlly. i was started to get frustrated. all the other CS employees were busy with other customers the manager was on the phone. i was running out of ways to try to calm this lady down so i could help her. she then slammed her arms on the counter and stretched her arm in my face as if she was going to point my eye out. i got a little upset and said a little loudly, "Ma'am could you stop being so B****y" . the lady didn't appreciate what was said to her and asked for the store manager. i told her i would take her to him. the customer service manager must have heard us because she took over. well, after she finished she left the counter. i guess the lady went to the manager. because i was called to the office. apparently, the lady was crying to the manager. she couldn't believe that i said that to her." i tried to explain myself. they said"customer is always right". so they fired me. i told them 5.00 and hour wasn't worth the hassle and i told them i quit. i never been back to jcpenney. and it has been 7 years since the incident.
