Don’t call your boss a scumbag like #30 did. Don’t condone murders of police officers! Sometimes people like to exercise their right to free speech on the internet, displaying it to their friends and family. Some people even cause mistrials in lawsuits! Others forgot that they also had their employers added on Facebook. This list of 35 hilarious, trashy and unbelievably dumb things that people have done to get themselves fired. Whether or not the employer was right to fire them could be up for debate, but the lesson remains the same: be careful of what you post! And, regardless of these people – don’t air your dirty laundry online, ok? Please?! You just look, well, trashy. The lady fired for condoning a murder of a police officer is just sick.
You’re Right, You Are A Waste Of Money
A 34 year old New Zealand woman named Tania Dickinson thought it would be a good idea to post on Facebook about how she is a “very expensive paperweight,” that is “highly competent in the art of time wastage, blame-shifting and stationary theft.” She was fired for her comments on the social networking site, as well as arson charges she was facing at the time, and an incident in 2007 where she had been given a formal warning for accessing records of clients that she knew. Ministry bosses told her then that her behaviour had ruined their trust and confidence in her as an employee. I bet it is hard for her to get another gig? You are going to have some trouble finding a job, young lady. Drunk Teachers on vacation?
Liar, Liar, Pants On Fire!
One guy was busted by his acquaintance who said, “I had to fire someone once. He was a volunteer firefighter and left for a call which I allowed. Fifteen minutes later someone showed me his 5 minute old post of him riding quads saying something along the lines of “sometimes you just need to F off from work”. That put him on a final warning. He then left because he said HIS house was on fire then half an hour later his wife tagged him in a photo of him sitting in a kiddie pool in front of his house. The funny thing is, in both cases, if he had simply asked to leave early I probably would have said yes,” said his boss. Oy ve!
Here’s A Tip, And You Can Keep The Change
These types of posts seem to have become more common lately. I don’t quite understand why waiters and waitresses tend to keep posting them, because it rarely ends well. Apparently this waitress was a bit vexed by her small tip. Going home then posting about it and what you would do the next time they came in? Yeah, probably not the best idea in the world. Note: this story has since be revealed as false, but in internet land, does it really matter? Lesson = learned. We sure hope for her sake she is now serving fries instead of $138 meals, or stops lying about her work days. Ridiculous.
Daycare Worker Who Hates Kids Fired
Single (and now unemployed) mom Kaitlyn Walls, had been job-hunting for months, thought she’d finally caught a break when she landed a new position at a day-care center in The Colony, Tex. Twenty-four words on Facebook later, the 27-year-old found herself unemployed once again. “I start my new job today,” she posted at the end of her first day last week. “But I absolutely hate working at day care. I just really hate being around a lot of kids.” “Oh, man, I made a big mistake,” Walls wrote on Facebook afterward. “I’m so sad. I feel like a failure here looking at my daughter crying because I’m afraid that I’m not going to be able to find a job because of my own stupidity.” I wouldn’t hire you. Nor should anyone else. Why does she hate kids anyway?
Yeah, These Taco Shells Are Up To Standard
It is humans like this that should not be allowed to have children. It looks like this Taco Bell employee thought the product needed some quality-assurance done. His method was just a bit…unorthodox. Unacceptable Bad Human. Who is going to hire you now?
I Can’t See Through These Clouds, Bro
This Social Media Wizard apparently thought it was 4:20 wherever this guy was, and had to show it to the world. His employer didn’t think it was as cool a picture and called him out on it. Then he was canned. Good luck, dude. Don’t be high and stupid, bro. Ha!
I Don’t Feel The Same Way About You… By The Way, You’re Fired
Do people even use their brain anymore? Here is another classic case of someone forgetting they added their boss on Facebook. This woman thought it would be a good idea to go off on her boss, only to have him comment on her post. Needless to say, his comment satisfies the situation. This is just unacceptable.
Hey, You’re Kind Of Cute
A sketchy New York teacher got fired for his Facebook post recently. Apparently he thought it would be a good idea to add and comment on his students’ profiles. He was fired for saying, “Your boyfriend does not deserve a beautiful girl like you.” Solid effort, pal. Don’t let the door hit you on the way out. Tacky, pervy, you take your pick of unacceptable behavior from an adult in charge of children. Stress from bad jobs is no excuse.
Royal What? Oh, Royally Screwed
Apparently while guarding Buckingham Palace, the Royal Guards can be as stoic as ever. But when Cameron Reilly got home, he had this to say about Kate Middleton “hur and william drove past me on friday n all a got was a shitty wave while she looked the opposite way from me, stupid stuck up cow am a not good enough for them! posh bitch am totally with u on this 1 who reely gives a f*** about hur.” Wow – hope you weren’t surprised you got ‘sacked’ mate! Ha!
Her Employment Contract Got “Mashed”
This brilliant Tennessee KFC employee had a Facebook picture posted showing her licking a pile of mashed potatoes on the job. Needless to say, she was immediately fired. Thanks to this not-so-witty ding dong, the entire KFC staff at that particular restaurant had to be retrained! I would start at the top and work my way down. Please don’t have children, lady; the world can only handle so much stupid. Who is going to hire you now?
It Looks Like This Guy Got Fired For His Stint In Never Never Land
Not too surprisingly, an intern was fired soon after requesting to leave early due to a “family emergency.” A few hours later one of his friends tagged him in a photo of him dressed up as a fairy at Halloween party. At least he looked stylish, right? I bet he didn’t get much of a reference after that debacle. Surely not.
Well, That Was Blunt
One ding dong said “I posted my facebook status about how big of dickhead my boss is…… and tagged him.” At least he was courteous enough to tag him, right? That is one way to ‘resign,’ though not very gracefully. The next one is funnier though. Check it out.
Everyone’s A Critic
A Pittsburgh Pirates mascot was fired for posting on Facebook criticizing the choices of the team’s President by saying: “Coonelly extended the contracts of Russell and Huntington through the 2011 season. That means a 19-straight losing streak. Way to go Pirates.” Unlike the General Manager and Manager, his contract was terminated. Not too bright, partner! Nope.
Apparently This Guy Forgot He Added His Boss
Posting about your utter hatred for your boss probably isn’t the best idea…especially if said boss is one of your friends on Facebook. Busted! Perhaps with all his free time now he can give a cursory glace through his friends list and refresh his memory. Spend some time thinking going forward, no?
The Jury’s Out – You’re Cut! Mistrial!
A UK Juror was dismissed after she posted to Facebook asking for help by writing: “I don’t know which way to go, so I’m holding a poll.” I guess they showed her which way: the door. Mistrial! Certainly not a fair jury of your peers from your Facebook friends, I don’t believe. Wait until you see #25!
I Guess You Could Say She Was Fired For “Dickin’ Around”
The beautiful, 18 year old, Caitlin Davis was fired from her job cheerleading for the New England Patriots when a picture of her appeared on Facebook. She was seen next to a passed-out friend who had been covered in racist terms, swastikas, and phallic symbols. Not a good start on life, young lady though she was offered $1 million dollars to star in an amateur porn movie which she declined. At least she makes some decent decisions that won’t haunt her for life! Who knows, maybe she’ll take them up on their offer at some point?
Groping Jokes in Prison: Bad Idea.
Senior Maryland state corrections official Michael Allred was fired last year after making dumb comments on social media about being groped in prison by guards.
“Visiting the prisons,” Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services statistics chief Michael Allred posted on Facebook “Haven’t been groped this much since the flight on the honeymoon … and this is just the guards!”
Allred also included his boss, Public Safety Secretary Stephen Moyer, in the Facebook post. Moyer fired Allred on Thursday, Be careful who you tag! Take note, friends of ViralPursui if you want to get fired, this would do it.
I get sick of my computer too.
An excuse, “sick of computer use,” was pretty weak in the first place however that is the ailment that a Swiss woman used in early 2009 with her employer, Nationale Suisse. Saying she needed a day off from her computer monitor to help with her migraines, she came to an agreement with her boss that she’d spend the day in a dark room. Laying in bed, she couldn’t help herself from logging on to the social network from her iPhone. The company noticed, and she was fired for the breach of trust. Dumb, Dumb, Dumb. Breach of trust, indeed.
Cuckoo for Coco Puffs?
Dawnmarie Souza posted on Facebook in 2010 how she “love[d] how the company allows a 17 to become a supervisor,” she was referring to her boss at the Hartford office of American Medical Response (AMR) of Connecticut. AMR uses the number “17” to refer to psychiatric patients. Souza made the comments from the confines of her personal computer during non-working hours, however she was soon fired. In February 2011, The NLRB told AMR that its policy prohibiting employees from making negative comments on social networks was “overly broad.” Before the case had a chance to test the law, though, Souza agreed to leave AMR in a settlement that also saw the company making plans to change its policies. I don’t see a bright future for you, sorry!
Planking is Ridiculous Anyway, Right?
The very first Google search for the phrase, “why are people,” is currently completed with the word, “planking.” The trend of “the lying down game,” has been among the most curious developments of the last few years, but all can agree that a hospital may not be the best place to give the fad a whirl. Working an overnight shift at the Great Western Hospital in the southwestern English city of Swindon, eight employees took turns planking on hospital floors and stretchers, among other spots. Pictures were inevitably taken, and posted on the Facebook page for planking, which states, “you got a body, you got a plank.” The employees were suspended in August 2009 for the incident, but were soon reinstated. That decision was backed by a Facebook group called “Reinstate the Suspended 7.” I wonder how they are doing now?
Totally Unacceptable for Facebook, or Anywhere.
Mitch Stein was working as an assistant coach for the boy’s junior varsity water polo team until late August, when he was fired after a parent discovered his Facebook and Myspace accounts.
The parent printed out two photos from the accounts and mailed them with an anonymous letter to Charter Oak High Principal Kathleen Wiard. One photo showed Stein posing with two drag queens. The other showed him about to eat a corn dog.
According Stein, the letter called him “unfit to coach” and demanded he be relieved of his duties. Stein said Wiard complied and fired him, despite his promises to have the photos removed from the Internet. The lawsuit is ongoing. Wow.
Not rehire-able. Ever.
Teenager Kimberley Swann was underwhelmed by the menial tasks she was given in her new job and took to Facebook.
Three weeks later, the words ‘first day at work. omg (oh my God)!! So dull!!’ came back to haunt her when her new boss Facebook stalking her found the post. Her termination letter read said: ‘Following your comments made on Facebook about your job and the company we feel it is better that, as you are not happy and do not enjoy your work, we end your employment with Ivell Marketing & Logistics with immediate effect.’
There was no word on whether he posted it to Facebook. Think people, please, just think.
Mistrial in the Making.
A juror in the UK was dismissed recently after she disclosed sensitive case information on her Facebook profile. “I don’t know which way to go, so I’m holding a poll” the juror wrote, asking her Facebook friends to weigh in on the case. Some people, just don’t get it! They probably never will.
How many Virgins?
Last year, Virgin Atlantic took disciplinary action against thirteen crew members who participated in a Facebook discussion that “criticised [Virgin’s] safety standards and insulted passengers,” according to the Guardian. The individuals “posted messages on Facebook referring to passengers as “chavs” and making jokes about faulty engines,” explains the Guardian, adding that they also “joked that planes were full of cockroaches and claimed the airline’s jet engines were replaced four times in one year. Comments joked that planes were full of cockroaches and claimed the airline’s jet engines were replaced four times in one year.” The comments were promptly removed, and all thirteen were fired. Rightly so.
No Commentary or Opinions, Please!?
Ashley Johnson, a former waitress at Brixx, a pizza restaurant, claims she was fired from her job for complaining about customers on her Facebook account. Johnson became irritated after she had to stay past her shift to wait on a table of two. When the table finally cleared out, they left what Johnson deemed an inadequate tip. “Thanks for eating at Brixx,” she reportedly wrote on her Facebook page, before using profanity and calling the customers “cheap.” Johnson told UPI.com that she accepts responsibility for her actions but didn’t expect to be fired over something she calls “very small.” One of the restaurant’s co-owners, however, said that Johnson had violated company policy: “We definitely care what people say about our customers.” Be careful ranting on Facebook folks! Check out this next one though; even worse.
Philadelphia Eagles Fans Are Frustrated!
Dan Leone, a game-day employee at the Philadelphia Eagles stadium, told the Philadelphia Inquirer that he was fired for criticizing the team via Facebook. After the Eagles’ beloved safety Brian Dawkins signed to the Denver Broncos, Leone posted the following status update: “Dan is [expletive] devastated about Dawkins signing with Denver. . .Dam Eagles R Retarted!!” Days later, Leone said he was contacted by the team’s director of event operations regarding his Facebook post. Leone deleted that post, but couldn’t save his job. Fired!
Stop Your Facebook Groups Complaining About Your JOBS!
Farm Boy, a Canadian grocery store chain fired seven employees for creating a Facebook group (“I got Farm Boy’d”) that mocked their customers and included “verbal attacks against customers and staff.” “No one was terminated for simply posting on a website,” Farm Boy president Donny Milito told Canada.com, “We have always been about respecting our customers and employees. … In the end I felt we had to stand up and defend ourselves in the best interest of our customers.” Good bye.
A Georgia high school teacher claims she was forced to resign after her principal “questioned her about about her Facebook page, which included photos of her holding wine and beer and an expletive,” CBSAtlanta reports. The teacher is now suing the school district because, she claims, she was not informed that she had the right to a hearing before stepping down. The National Education Association reveals that in other states, several young teachers and school staffers have put their jobs at risk by revealing personal information that parents and supervisors find inappropriate. Oh wow! You are gone-good riddance.
Pittsburg Fans P’d Again
Andrew Kurtz, a Pittsburgh Pirate pierogi mascott, was fired after he took to Facebook and voiced his opinion about the team’s management. New York Daily News provides the details: The message was aimed at team president Frank Coonelly, general manager Neal Huntington and manager John Russell and read: “Coonelly extended the contracts of Russell and Huntington through the 2011 season. That means a 19-straight losing streak. Way to go Pirates.” Days later, Pirates communications director Brian Warecki told ESPN that Kuntz had been rehired because “he had not been dismissed in accordance with company procedures.” Warecki also said that “bad publicity played no part in the decision.” Bologna.
Bad Idea, Mr. Fireman.
Colleton County paramedic and firefighter Jason Brown was dismissed from his job after posting a video that shows an exchange between two cartoon characters at a hospital. Firefighter Nation reports, In a letter of dismissal Brown provided, Colleton County Fire-Rescue Director Barry McRoy said, “You [Brown] displayed poor judgment in producing a derogatory video depicting a member of this department with a physician which is implied to be at Colleton Medical Center.” You are FIRED, Firefighter! Fight somewhere else. Now, wait until you see #25 what she said about the dead policeman.
Bad Idea, Mr. Football Player.
Oregon wide receiver Jamere Holland slammed his school’s athletic program after hearing a linebacker was kicked off the team. Although erroneous reports that the teammate had been dismissed were false, Holland was kicked off for the “racially charged” remarks. “I wish I could block whites as friends and only have blacks LOL, cause apparently I’m misunderstood,” he wrote. Dumb Duck! Welcome to the CFL buddy.
Prison Jokes Aren’t Funny.
Six Australian state corrections workers came under fire for a Facebook group, “Suggestions to help Big RON save a few clams,” criticizing their boss and a government plan to privatize several prison facilities. The members of the online group, which numbered in the hundreds, according to Australia’s Sydney Morning Herald, made posts about wasteful management practices and criticized Corrective Services Commissioner Ron Woodham. “Among the comments posted on the group, members suggested the department could save money by sacking senior officials who they claimed added little value. Other comments also revealed areas of wastage within Corrective Services,” the Sydney Morning Herald writes. When Woodham discovered the group, he suggested that certain members be fired for the “public,” “bullying” comments they had made online. Those members, who became known as the Facebook Six, waited in limbo for six months before they won their case against the NSW Corrective Services Department. No word on their current status.
One woman’s (alleged) Facebook post reportedly caught the attention of her boss, who offered a prompt reply–along with a pink slip. And for good reason.
Another Fired Philadelphia Fan.
On Dec. 7, Blankenburg posted the following statement to her Facebook account:
“If my child cannot get to the Eagles game due to protestors, I will personally SHOOT every one of them. You’ve been warned idiots!!” The post was then shared on Twitter with this caption: “#guidancecounselorthreatens to kill #FergusonPHLprotestors after #eaglesgame.” An online firestorm and the subsequent investigation followed. Blankenburg was placed on administrative leave immediately afterwards and then fired. See ya! And next you aren’t going to believe what she said after the officer was killed.
“The cop got what he deserved, messing with these kids for no reason.”
Greenville, SC investigation has been launched into allegations that a Burger King employee made inappropriate comments to a customer following the death of Greenville Officer Allen Jacobs. WYFF News 4 started investigating the allegations after tons of Facebook messages and emails came into the newsroom. A Greenville woman said she went to the Burger King on Laurens Road and started speaking about the loss of Officer Jacobs to the cashier.The woman said a worker came over and said, “The cop got what he deserved, messing with these kids for no reason.”
The customer posted about her experience on Facebook and, at last check, it had been shared more than 16,000 times. In a statement to WYFF News 4, officials at Burger King corporate office said:”We extend our condolences to the family of Officer Jacobs and the Greenville community. We are concerned about this incident and take these matters very seriously. The Franchise Owner, who independently owns and operates this restaurant, is launching an investigation in accordance with their personnel procedures.” Jacobs was shot and killed on Friday by a 17-year-old that officials described as a gang member.
Teacher Fired for Drinking on Vacation.
Georgia high school teacher Ashely Payne posted pics of her vacation to Ireland and the Guinness Brewery. Posing with pint in hand, the local school board felt the images were enough ground to fire her. Payne said, “I was just doing what adults do and have drinks on vacation and being responsible about it.” She went on to sue the district, with her case set for trial this fall.
Disgruntled Ambulance Worker Called Boss a “Scumbag”.
Ambulance worker Dawnmarie Souza was asked by a supervisor to look into a customer complaint about her performance. Heated over the request, the American Medical Response worker went on Facebook later on and labeled her boss a “dick” and a “scumbag.” Could she have been any more harsh? Being that Souza broke the company’s Internet policy on posting anything about AMR without permission, she was excused.
Roy Egan, Chicago O’Hare TSA Agent Fired Over Anti-Muslim, Racist Facebook Comments
This jackwagon Roy Egan worked at the airport for nine years before he was suspended after TSA officials reportedly found Egan to be in violation of the agency’s policies for employee conduct both on and off job.
The Facebook postings — consisting of comments and graphic images alike — on Egan’s Facebook page are startling. In addition to anti-gay and anti-Muslim remarks, Egan allegedly posted racist comments about African Americans and Latinos.
“Does anything at all make you smile more than a Muslim burning by his own hateful hand?” Egan reportedly wrote in one post. He describes President Obama as “Muslim-in-chief” in another. According to ABC, he wrote Attorney General Eric Holder should “die tasting your own blood.” Not smart Mr. Egan, not smart at all.
