Black and Blue Landscaper

i got fired!

Recommended Posts

wow, b&b, your response to ME - when YOU were at fault for getting fired, for stealing? That's priceless! Public relations and the decision to use the good neighbour policy usually comes from a little higher up than the counterboy at Blockbuster. Based on your explosive response, and general immature attitude, let me just give you a phrase that will certainly come in handy with your future career: "would you like fries with that?"

HAHA!!! Stace, I think you're giving him too much credit with that. I think "Paper, or plastic" is much more appropriate. Plus there's no way to strike back at a consumer in that position!

Wildman... that's terrible man. I stopped taking my car to the dealership for service because of people like you. Landscaper - almost everybody cheats their workplace at some point. Be it taking off early, stealing/eating things, or just wasting time on C+G like me right now. You must realize, however, that you are taking a risk whenever you do so, and the cost may be your job. Don't attack Stace.

Don't attack anyone. There was no need for those sorts of responses, Black and Blue Landscaper, especially since you were the one who decided to air your dirty laundry to everyone.

That's what the warning is for.

Anyway, back to normal conversations...

I've never been fired or quit a job...I've worked at the same job in a meatpacking plant for the last six summers, although I started off making boxes and eventually worked my way up to the office.  Last summer my boss had me doing a lot of work with important documents, setting up things that would improve efficiency (example: setting up scanners to scan all incoming and outgoing product instead of having to manifest it by hand), filling out weekly prices on product, and drawing up designs for his proposed expansion.  It was a great job because the work I did was really appreciated and I got along with everybody there.

This next summer I'm working on getting an internship in the Chicago area, so I probably won't be going back there.  But it's one of those places where you can always go back if you're looking for work.

I haven't been in a Blockbuster's in about 5 1/2 years...ever since I started my Netflix subscription. Speaking of firing, I've never been fired but have lost a couple of jobs back in the dot.bomb era due to startup companies running out of money and shutting down (incl. one that shut down owing me about 10k in wages).

Wow, did this thread ever heat up! I think we can all realize that just like anywhere else, there are all types of people. Some have different ideas on what is acceptable work ethics than others do. Usually a business will sort that type of stuff out (if given enough time). Occasionally people who steal even find great prosperity (I can them "CEO's"), but we are getting a bit off track here.

Well what's wrong with it? I'm not a fan of people who come into a restaurant and urinate all over the bathroom floors intentionally right after they see that they were cleaned. Ooh...now that I specify the reason as to why I did not like these people, it kind of changes things, doesn't it? Trust me, there was a valid reason behind it. When security files a ban report, they have to list the offenses leading to the ban; there always has to be a valid reason behind a ban. The only variable is how strictly one enforces the rules. It is obvious that in life, generally well-behaved people get more of a reprieve than "habitual offenders."

Do you think someone is more likely to get a speeding ticket if it is their first offense or their eighth?

You can only imagine? Or you immediately assume someone is immature when you dont know the whole story? Seems like a personal attack to me.

ha looks like this turned into fun...as far as the personal attacks go...next time ill make sure to make them PMs. secondly i want EVERYONE to know that in no way was i bitching about this i could give a sh*t less, these jobs are a dime a dozen. also i believe no one here has the right to say how bad it was in the fact i did not step outside of the general rules of the store, i used my personal employee account in which i get 5 free rentals a week, but do not have time to use them all so i would give them to the employees next door to watch. in turn they would upsell for me while people ate their dinner after which they would come talk to me, so it so happens i caused more sales by doing this. if you dont believe me that's fine believe what you want to. and if you still dont agree thats fine. dont tell me about it.
