Oh boy. We fired an intern once for chewing tobacco in the office

funnylike

Saw 2 people got fired both for expenses.
1. Was a legit a**le tipping $100 on $100 check to pick up waitresses, using his Delta card to book flights and submitting paper receipt to get more points, got audited and then fired
2. Was staying at hotels in NYC and ATL on weekends often calling it "weekend support" in expenses, got audited and then sacked

Never f**k with your expenses man. NEVER EVER!!

New manager got drunk at a company wide leadership retreat for a healthcare company. Dude couldn’t handle his liquor and went around giving people wet willies!
But the topper was that he puked on a female leader, whom we later learned was the CEOs secret mistress. His ass was so fired.

A project mgr turned a work stream to red and emailed out red status to everyone without informing the sponsor. Sponsor got embarrassed, fired the PM over the weekend, turning off her laptop access

The kicker was that the new PM had booked up conference rooms for 6 mos worth of mtgs and client didn’t know how to change that since they turned off access

Just got out of a meeting with a client. Talk about uncomfortable- they'd fired their director that morning and he ran in screaming at the team. They ended up calling security to kick him out!

Anyone else have a lot of shame about their career? I’ve been successful, but have jumped around a lot, worked in toxic environments with poor managers, acted immaturely and just got laid off due to COVID. I wish I could go back in time and have a much cleaner career.

Unpopular opinion - Getting fired/let go is a great thing since it will teach you to be more prepared in the future, your job is never 100% safe, you get reminded you are an employee so no need to overwork, you get to find a better job, once you get back on your feet you won’t fear getting fired/let go anymore since you’ve already went through it and found another job!
