    A couple dudes got fired for not being able to do their work at a level commensurate with their level at the company.

    Is that what you’re looking for?

      Ok, then, how about administrative assistant got fired for having sex in the admin closet.

      Of course, the dude she was fucking just got a stern warning...

  • For not having a "can do attitude" after refusing to shut up about some discrepancies in the numbers that made her manager look good. Non tech role in non tech company.

    Taking a picture of the CEO in a meeting. No joke, you don’t snap pics of Tim Armstrong.

      I’ve seen a manager and his secretary get caught. She gets fired and he gets promoted. Can’t make this shit up.

      It’s true. The oil industry doesn’t exactly act the best towards women.

    When I worked at the airport, a coworker was fired for eating out of the fresh cart of extra food for a flight we’d just cleaned.

    Food service didn’t care if you ate anything inbound, they were going to toss it anyway. But outbound was a very big deal.

      Inbound means back into terminal from the plane?

      A spent aircraft at the end of its destination. Outbound is a freshly restocked aircraft ready for its destination. I worked international flights, so they were rarely a leg of a trip. These were aircraft coming from and going to Asia.
