When you start a new job, the contract has to be properly read and if there is something unclear, we suggest consulting someone who knows a little about employment contracts or is at least aware of the cost of uniforms. $50 for a pair of boots and pants? A ripoff in our opinion.
So this guy can say goodbye to his job and goodbye to his $50 and hope that on his next job offer, he will read between the lines when reviewing the contract.
Sick Leave Way Too Soon
Could you imagine what would have happened if the guy hadn't turned around? Not sure the visit to the hospital would have been worth the while. And firing him, wouldn't be possible either.
That could have a great limited edition treat for the factory to make. Beef stew with an added trainer for that spicy touch.
Pimp Your Ride
After their kid passes their driver's test, the first thing every parent does is explain the differences between gas and diesel. There is an extra emphasis on which type their car takes. A parent's biggest nightmare is filling the wrong type into the car. It can practically damage the car for good.
So this guy spared the chaos from the kids and caused the damage on his own. Thanks, dude!
Come on Baby Light My Fire
Safety is ABC in warehouses and factories that deal with hazards, and training the new staff is as important. So either this new dude wasn't paying attention during his training session, or the Oilfield people were too busy doing something else and thought they could skip the safety chapter.
Whatever happened there, and whoever is to blame, we can all be thankful that the worst that came out of this incident, are these lines we found on Reddit.
One Day, Two Months
That's the way to do it. If you're going to lose your job on the first day, make sure your future/past employer is not the brightest bulb in the box. They probably didn't realize that the people in the room are not all entitled to severance pay.
We like this. You go to work for one day and earn yourself a six-week holiday in the Bahamas. Now the only job left is finding another not-so-bright employer so the next holiday can be planned.
