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.
The Hostess With the Mostest
The hostess at a restaurant (not only Applebee's) is usually the person who welcomes the customers in when they arrive. They are in some ways, the face of the place. Looks like the face of Applebee's is not all that pleasant after all.
What did this restaurant expect? That scrubbing her name off the weekly schedule would make her disappear altogether? Couldn't the manager just tell her that her services were not welcomed anymore?
The New Hire Test
Before we start dishing out our thoughts concerning the next one, we wish we could have known which position this guy was applying for. Now, if he was applying for a forklift operator, then we can understand. But if he was applying for a content writer position, then we really don't understand what the fuss was about.
Some of the best music pieces and stories were written when the author or composer was happier than usual.
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.
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.
