When you walk into a new job, the last thing that’s on your mind is how you could be fired. Unless you’re an unruly employee who never listens to the rules, chances are you’ll be able to keep that job. Sometimes though, strange circumstances happen, and employees have to pay for them.
Other times, ridiculous things happen that are completely out of your control, and yet you still lose your job for it. It happens quite often, in fact. These people shared the most ridiculous ways they got fired on the internet. This just proves that life isn’t fair sometimes. Read these ridiculous – and somehow real – stories of the worst ways people were terminated below.
The Irresistible McNugget
There’s a reason people order dozens of McNuggets. They’re delicious and irresistible. This is especially true if you’re with a group of friends. One more McNugget isn’t going to hurt. This former McDonald’s employee found out that there can be one too many McNuggets the hard way. He abused his ability to indulge in McNuggets whenever he wanted. This is exactly what you’re not supposed to do, and to him, stuffing his mouth with McNuggets was worth more than keeping his job. By the looks of it, those McNuggets were worth getting fired for. He’ll probably never look at them the same way ever again (via Traveler Door).
