Party balloons
My brother worked at Burger King when he was a teenager. One night he and a friend were blowing up helium balloons for a birthday party. They thought it would be a good idea to test the helium on themselves. They started sucking the helium out of the tank and talking like crazed chipmunks. The boss walked in and fired them both.

I got this job with a Temp. company at a Bank. I was told it was a Temp to Perm job, meaning I was gonna be there a while. I was replacing this girl that moved. I was there a week, when the following monday, I got a phone call saying that she was back from vacation and I didn't have to come in. THEY CALLED ME A HALF HOUR BEFORE I WAS SUPPOSED TO SHOW UP!

School is more then a job. So when you get expelled, its pretty freakin sweet. Ok, my friend John must be retarded. He was a senior at my school until he took a senior prank a little too far. Our school has a magnificent library; very spacious, and peaceful, and the proctors of this library like to keep the peace. John and his friends have one goal in life; to disturb this peace. So this kid John, he's a pretty crazy kid. He decides it'd be funny to steal a bunch of chickens from a farm near his house, and let them into the library's secretive back door. Now chickens are elusive animals. I've been in a 10ft by 10ft pen with a chicken, and never caught it. Imagine 7 chickens with an entire library to roam. Not going to lie, I peed my pants laughing. The school had to call animal control to come and get the chickens. John was put in front of the school's judiciary committee, and unanimously expelled.

Clash of Personalities
I was working in an office, it was only small being myself, the senior office girl, the boss, the manager and one labourer. The Senior office girl and i didn't hit it off at all, she was constantly finding ways to put me down and make my days miserable. I had been there a month when one day i had worked very hard to put the filing system in order and gone to do another job, and when i returned there were files all over the place and she told me to put them back. I know she was the senior but that just made me see red and i told her to stuff it. The boss came out and told us both to go out to lunch and i stormed out and went home without telling them. They fired me the next day and i don't regret it.
