Workplace injuries can cost business owners a pretty penny. This is probably the reason why this dry cleaner owner sacked the fool who kept accidentally hitting his head on the “rack thingy.” Whether it was truly in the way, or the worker was just not paying attention, we will never know.
The moral of the story, if you find yourself getting knocked in the head repeatedly from just being at work, you might want to change your environment, or just stop standing up altogether.
Working at a bar is tough, and tending to thirsty patrons can get a little overwhelming. It's possible that for this very reason, this new employee bailed on his first night and sought freedom in the comfort of Instagram and cigarette breaks outside the pub.
It wasn't two hours into his shift when the new guy invited his buddies over for free drinks, some of which were too young to even be there! Needless to say, he was fired on the spot. But it didn't end there. This jokester then had the nerve to actually appeal it, despite all the evidence against him. We're talking CCTV footage and statements by several witnesses.
No Human Contact, Please
The beginning of this story has a positive start. Formal training- check, work experience- check. It seemed like the girl had what it took to become a decent coffee shop worker. The thing about coffee shops is that they're filled with people.
It sounds like people skills were not her forte. The best way to deal with that? Hide in the back near the ice machine, away from warm-blooded humans.
Hiring new workers is always a risk, what seems alright on paper may not translate to real life. So when this new cook stuck his hand into a deep fryer on a dare, it was clear to the boss that this wasn't going to be a good fit.
What was he trying to get out of that? Who knows! Perhaps compensation for a work injury, maybe just simply a laugh from his coworkers. Well, he certainly wasn't laughing at the end of that in the hospital.
Bro, Do You Even Forklift?
As a forklift operator, there are a few requirements for this kind of job. One of them is knowing how to operate a forklift. The other is knowing how to operate a forklift, and lastly...you get it. It's safe to say that this guy handed in a very short resume, or at least had a rather brief conversation with the manager, all of which was centered around the extent of his fork lifting knowledge.
It all looked promising and on his very first day, Mr. Forklift Operator ignited that sweet, sweet engine and promptly... drove into a support beam that stood in front of him. You can guess what happened next.
