Oh Merc. This is my only place where I can get satisfaction and understanding of the trauma of loosing those 2 jobs. It has nothing to do with Corvid 19 or 20 and everything to help us as people understand why we got fired. People do fire people. I think there was even a show about getting fired unless I am just imagining that. So please no corvid this and that in my home.hug teddybear peace

An employer tried it once when I refused to bow to his advances. Changed his mind when I threatened to tell his wife but I left anyway.grin

Yes. Well, they called it layoffs, Reductions In Force (RIFs), and downsizing. Three different government jobs.

Got sick of begging others for permission to work, started to work for myself.

Stealing office supplies isn't nearly as much fun now.

Really FIRED only once. When I was only 20 or so. Actually I had been let go from previous job so kind of fired. I had worked for dry cleaners. Left and came back to it and new owner. Well we had 3 young gals and one old bat. The boss said he had to let me go, as well as the other two cause he was having an affair with the old bat. Made her manager and she ordered we all go or she would quit and/or tell his wife. Never figured him out!confused His wife was waaaayyyy better.
So I applied at an army surplus store in town. I was told to wear dresses. And ended up lugging tarps and boots and heavy boxes up from basement on rickety old open backed wood steps. I worked one week and he fired me. I was traumatized cause this was a REAL firing!wow blues I asked his wife why. She was one of those left over babes with bouffant hair style of the 50s. She hemmed and hawed, finally told me cause my hair was not super cute. Uh..I wore a wig at interview?
Today she and he would have gotten an ear full. So I am supposed to dress like a harlot to lure the men to shop while working like a stevedore lugging weight?
I didn't know what to do. I went back to my old boss and asked him what I should do.crying He said dont even worry about it. When I applied for a job, put down that he was my last boss. Dont even put down nor mention the surplus. I did go back to work for him for a couple weeks in another store he bought to close. And the old bat finally ordered him to divorce his wife. He fired HER! lol
Revenge...surplus folded in a few years.
All my jobs terminated by me or because biz folded.
When I applied at the radio station, boss said to me, dont know if safe to hire me since all the past jobs had folded. I worked for him for 14 years. And then the new owner decided to go to satellite from his northern station. I was the last sales/office to leave. We talked and I said I knew there were no stores left in town to sell ads too!doh I went through my desk and thought of all the sales people I had exited and this was the last one, my own. Guy ended up selling the station to the other owner of broadcast.
I retired at 59...was not interested in working anymore.thumbs down

Once at 15 from the local petrol station and then again at 17 from an electronics factory. By 22 there was a third time that was a lot to do with the Great Recession. Nowadays I'll simply fire myself after a bad day, hire myself again in the morning.
