random porn customers… part 13 (sneaky supervisor)

So I once got fired from the porn store for bringing a coworker a birthday cake. Isn’t that a stupid reason to fire someone? Well, that was the official reason I was fired, but not the real reason…

I went through several managers at the porn store. Some were good, some were worthless, but the guy who fired me was more worthless than the rest. Let’s call him Sneaky Supervisor. So Sneaky Supervisor was probably my fourth manager at the porn store in the first year I worked there. As soon as he started working there, the cash started coming out wrong. It actually evened out on paper, but the credit card profits were long and the cash was short each night. Birthday Boy Coworker and I figured out that Sneaky Supervisor was running customers’ credit cards for more than what they bought, then pocketing the difference.

Birthday Boy Coworker and I decided to talk to the area manager about Sneaky Supervisor’s stealing. The night before we were going to tell the area manager, Birthday Boy Coworker told Sneaky Supervisor that we were going to tell on him. Not a good move. My thinking is, if you are going to drop a bomb on someone, only warn them if you like them. Otherwise, drop it, and let shit land where it lands. Also, don’t threaten anyone who has the power to fire you. Because you know what happened the next morning? Of course Sneaky Supervisor fired both Birthday Boy Coworker and me.

I called the area manager and explained the situation. In less than a week, Sneaky Supervisor was history, and I was offered my porn clerk job back. So I was not fired because of a birthday cake, but because Sleazy Supervisor was stealing and trying to cover his ass. So has anyone else been fired for a stupid reason? Anything as stupid as a birthday cake?

  1. I got fired from my first job for something really stupid, and not at all my fault. My boss was having an affair with one of the other workers at the shop. His wife found out and fired everybody. I don’t know why…guilt by association, I guess. The husband was smarmy and a perv, and I was happy to be gone from there anyway.
