I got fired once for telling my boss to go **** himself in front of some customers.

That'll do it. Never been fired and I've been pretty nonchalant when working retail. Giving friends discounts, being late, giving myself discounts...

I had a boss that let us basically steal food at El Pollo Loco. His theory was "if I didn't see it it didn't happen".

He used to bust out crazy Vietnam stories randomly too.

They paid me $5/hour, yeah, I was racking in some serious dough back then. So my first day was Saturday night and it was quite busy. Now you all know how big a chinese menu is, so people were calling up and ordering tons of stuff and I had no clue where anything was on the menu, so when they were ordering their 6th item, I was just locating the 2nd item on the menu.

So when I first get there, my boss was some chinese lady whose name that 1. I couldnt understand and 2. couldnt pronounce. It was some chinese name, but I'll come back to that later. I then have some Indian dude come in and keep telling me he wanted "green chili". I had no clue what the hell this guy was talking about or wanted so I went in back to get my boss. It took about 5-10 minutes before she realized what he wanted and that we didnt have it.

So now its getting close to 8 pm, and I get a call from someone who said they had a delivery and got the wrong item. They said they ordered boneless spareribs and they got regular ones. Apparantly I saw spareribs on the menu so I circled it. I didnt pay attention whether they were boneless or not. So I tell the people on the phone someone will bring them their ribs. So then I see my mom pull up in front to pick me up. So I walk in back where everyone is chinese and all shouting chinese. So I tell them someone got the wrong order and that someone has to deliver their stuff. Then I tell them its 8:00 and my shift is up and Im leaving. So they pay my hard earned $15 and I leave.

Now the fun begins. I called the next day to tell my boss I couldnt work Wed because I bowled varsity in high school and we had matches M-T-W. I asked for whatever her name was but whoever answered the phone had no clue who I was talking about. So after 5 minutes of trying to get them to understand who I was talking about I said, its the only lady that works here. They said oh, she no here, so I said screw it Im not going to bother with this anymore.

So now Tuesday comes and I am still on my way home from bowling and I get home and my brother says that my job called. It was my boss. He says what his conversation was with her and I am not making this up, this is classic.

My bro: "Hello".
Chinese lady: "Is the kid there"?
My bro: "Who"?
Chinese lady: "The kid that work here".
My bro: "Oh, my bro, no hes still at school".
Chinese lady: "Oh, tell him he no work here no more".

Now how great is that. So there I was with my $15 of hard earned money for that one night, never to work there again. Although I still order my chinese food from that place, its great stuff. Its one of those fake chinese food places, but what can I say, the food is good.
I thought you said that this was a funny story.
