A lot of us have been let go in the past --- but how many of you can say you were fired your very first day of work?!
Not first day but first week. So let me preface this by saying I used to be an AGM of an IHOP. And I hired an overnight server. Pretty standard overnight type. (They are always odd balls) but this guy took the cake. I would make a habit of checking up on my overnight employees because obviously it's easy to sit around and do nothing when work could be getting done (standard annoying ass manager shit I know) so I watching camera footage of his shifts after a week and I keep seeing him sit down in the one booth. This booth had minimal camera coverage and I could only see a little of him sitting there. I thought he was sleeping but didn't have enough evidence to prove it so I moved the camera over a little to capture the whole booth. His next shift sure enough he goes and sits in that booth and then something awful happens. ON CAMERA I HAVE THIS GROWN MAN (like 35 years old) starts to JERK OFF on the clock IN THE DINING ROOM. I was 19 at the time and that was the most awkward termination I ever had to deal with. I just rolled the camera footage in front of him and handed him a termination paper and said "please sign this, we will mail your last check, don't come back." He tried to file for unemployment due to wrongful termination. I had to send the video of a man clearly jerking off to my district manager who I imagine sent it to corporate so they could deal with it. (Source)
