The most curious layoffs

Relations between superiors and subordinates are always accompanied by conflicts. There may be differences of a racial, sexual, political or religious nature. Conflict can last for years, and end in one second. The consequences can be the cause of personal disaster, but can bring satisfaction to both parties. The resolution of the most fundamental disputes is usually one – dismissal.

The most curious layoffs

In times of crisis, few want to change jobs. But it can be lost not only because of cutbacks, drunkenness or simple laziness. The authorities, wanting to get rid of an unwanted employee, can come up with a bunch of reasons for dismissal. Well, the subordinates themselves do not cease to provide them. The reasons are sometimes so curious that it is impossible to keep silent about them.

Error door.

One of the Moscow managers, Vladimir, who worked in a construction company, suddenly found himself out of work after the bright 10th anniversary of the company. Celebration took place in the Moscow region, in one of the rest homes. All the incoming employees were given keys to individual rooms. After that, a banquet began, with drinks, snacks and dances. All the guests, naturally, left their keys on the table. Over time, they mixed up, and not everyone could remember the room number of their room. The unlucky manager left the hall at one in the morning, grabbing the first key from the table and heading to his room. There he, not undressing and not including the light, reached the sofa, where he immediately fell asleep. Woke up the manager of other people’s voices, belonging to a pair of lovers. Male belonged to the head of the firm. Vladimir decided tactfully not to interfere with the manager and not to distract the couple from their intimate pursuits. However, for a long time it was not enough, the manager suddenly began to laugh furiously. It turned out that Vladimir was in the room to his boss. He, not finding his key, but remembering the room number, found it unlocked. The next day, the head urged Vladimir to write a letter of resignation at his own request. The unfortunate manager was forced to agree with this request, apologizing, he resigned.

Attempt to cutlet.

Lieutenant of the patrol and guard service, who lives in Lipetsk, Alexei Ivannikov, after finishing his hard working day went to a cafe to eat. He did not have much money, mostly it was a trifle. Counting it, Alex realized that the funds will be enough for only 100 grams of vodka. The policeman almost resigned himself to drinking without snacks, when suddenly he saw a cutlet lying on his neighbor’s plate on the table. Appetizing kind of meat product changed something in Alexey’s brain, perhaps, images of grandmother’s and mother’s food surfaced in my head. As a result, the policeman suddenly grabbed a cutlet, but the conscience to eat it right there, he did not have enough. Alexei, whether ashamed of his act, whether wanting to have a bite without witnesses, ran out of the cafe, disappeared from view. The next day the amateur cutlet Alexei remained unemployed. The chief said that such unscrupulous people in law enforcement agencies do not belong.

Harmful gossip.

It happens that innocent gossip turns into serious consequences. In the American town of Huxset, four employees of the city administration were fired for dismissing rumors about their boss. Girlfriends were vividly discussing the news that their boss David Joydon twisted a love affair with a new young employee. However, the boss did not like such gossip about him, because he was married. David hired a lawyer, asking him to identify the source and distributor of such unpleasant rumors. He spoke with office employees, coming to the conclusion that the main sources of gossip were collaborators Jessica, Michelle, Sandra and Joanna. All of them were quickly dismissed. Only here Huxett – a small town, it is home to only 13 thousand people. Soon the scandal with the dismissal of women became known to everyone. Women in the wake of popular anger even collected signatures in their defense with a demand to restore them at work.However, the mayor’s office categorically refused to accept unnecessarily talkative women back to work.

Unsuccessful focus.

To somehow interest his students, a high school teacher in Boston, Peter Conworth, during the class decided to show them some simple tricks. First, he showed how easy it is to make invisible an ordinary handkerchief. The teacher was carried away by tricks, followed by a demonstration of how an ordinary pencil can be shoved into one ear, and pulled out of the other. The disciples observed what was happening with unprecedented interest. But in the evening Peter began to have problems – he was urgently summoned to school from home. It turned out that the students liked the tricks so much that they decided to repeat them at home. As a result, three schoolchildren were hospitalized with various ear injuries. The unfortunate magician from the school was quickly expelled, threatening bans in general to work in the educational sphere.

Inappropriate forgiveness.

Kindness, it turns out, is not always appropriate. It was this quality that caused the dismissal of the head of the traffic police of the Sukhobuzim district of the Krasnoyarsk Territory. A kind policeman refused to take bribes without writing out even fines to violators. For some reason, he decided that a good attitude and participation can teach drivers to comply with the rules of traffic on the roads. In addition, the officer advanced his ideas to the masses, demonstrating this by personal example. The subordinates were explained that with violators it is necessary to conduct polite conversations, they can not be fined, but there can be no talk of bribes. Even the crossing of a double continuous strip can, in the officer’s opinion, be forgiven. But the law is not so good, according to him, such a violation entails deprivation of the rules for a year. A few high-profile good deeds turned into a firing for the policeman. And even more – he had to explain his actions in court. There they did not show mercy, a good employee received a year and a half of probation, because he violated the rules of labor discipline. The court decided that such misinterpretation of official duties could lead to the death of people.

Inappropriate dances.

In Nizhny Tagil, employees of the Internal Affairs Department decided to congratulate their female colleagues on the 8th of March. To do this, the police were invited to the celebration directly to the office stripper. The incendiary man first “lit” the show with torches, and then began to wriggle in the dance between the desks of the collaborators. Sexy stripper so captivated women military personnel that they began to dance with him. Only now a party of drunken employees in the office was filmed on a mobile phone camera. The next day the video became a hit of the Internet. The three most active participants in the scandal were immediately fired. The commander of the battalion and the head of the city traffic police preferred to fall ill suddenly. True, they were dismissed after they left for work.

Harmful flavors.

It turns out that it’s not always good to smell good either. In Vancouver, insurance company manager Melinda Sauters was because of this dismissed and even almost beaten. The fact is that the woman was very fond of using perfume with a sweet smell, splashing them on herself repeatedly throughout the day. Melinda explained this by the fact that the sweet smell helped her concentrate on the work, giving new strength. But her colleagues thought otherwise, such a fragrance added to them not strength, but only a headache. Co-workers of the woman not once asked her to stop using her favorite perfume at work. In the office, even a scandal occurred, when one employee told Melinda that her disgusting perfume was better to be thrown out. The woman decided to get justice from the boss. But he was also approached by a delegation from other employees who vigorously demanded the sack of Melinda Sauters. The chief could not resist the collective majority, dismissing his fragrant subordinate.

The prohibition of same-sex love.

Although today it is not accepted to look askance at people with non-traditional orientation, some employers are not afraid to show their attitude to them.An unpleasant story occurred with the 40-year-old Saida Abaneyeva, a resident of Tomsk. The chief dismissed her for her infatuation with women. The woman did not accept this decision, having sued, accusing her former company of discrimination and infringement of sexual minorities. The hearing lasted 6 months. The court indeed confirmed the legitimacy of the claims of the woman, deciding to pay her 31 thousand rubles. All would be nothing, but the irate authorities came up with a kind of revenge for their former collaborator. The amount to be paid to her was paid in coins of 5 kopecks. Said received as payment two large sacks of copper coins – the loaders were barely able to drag them into the apartment. But the woman refused to accept money in this form. The director of the company had to go back on track and transfer money to the bank account.

The prohibition of traditional love.

But in America, one of the employees of the marketing department of the bank was fired for his traditional sexual orientation. The fact is that all the colleagues, together with the boss, were gay. This fact has not bothered the marketer for a long time. Once the boss found out that his subordinate came to the restaurant (oh, horror!) With a friend. The next day, the marketer was dismissed, as it does not correspond to the level of the company. A layman still can not understand whether he is the object of sexual discrimination or whether he should be concerned about why the whole year the chef took him for gay?

Inappropriate reading.

The head of the city administration of the Californian city of Chula Vista was dismissed for his excessive interest in the charms of Pamela Anderson and other beauties. It turned out, city manager David Garcia spent half his time looking at naked models in men’s magazines. The manager was handed over by his assistant, reporting on his behavior to the mayor himself. Garcia was summoned to him, and as an argument he found nothing better than to say that the woman’s breasts help him better focus on the problems of the city. The mayor reasonably remarked that the salary of 20 thousand dollars a month and so quite a good incentive for work. For his inappropriate readings Garcia eventually was fired.

Useful smoking.

In the Swedish engineering office of the city of Malmö, seven non-smoking employees were immediately fired for their lack of this addiction. The fact is that the owner of the company Jon Aleksandersson himself is an avid smoker. Therefore, he was very surprised when some of his subordinates demanded to prohibit the use of cigarettes in the office. As a result, the owner decided to leave not with smoking, but with his opponents. Swede strongly stated that he was already tired of those people who break their habits by others, content with fashion for a healthy lifestyle. In addition, Jon said that smoking employees worked better than their non-smoking colleagues. And customers for some reason put forward more claims to those engineers who advocated a healthy lifestyle. The dismissed employees appealed to the court, trying to protest this decision of the chief. The trial was not over yet, but Jon received broad support from his fellow countrymen. He receives many letters, signatures are collected in his support.

Harmful voice.

The company quickly put forward charges of damaging it, offering amicably to part. The singer has rushed for the help to the colleagues, including them as the admirers. However, they themselves were glad to get rid of the locksmith with an unpleasant voice. Tom had no choice but to quit.

Beer theft.

An unpleasant story happened to the police chief of a small town in Kansas.Wilson Hill was kicked out of his job for stealing beer from firefighters. The fact is that the fire department is in the same building as the police. Between them there is only a door, which is usually kept open. Once, on his duty Hill decided to see what the neighbors are doing. There was no one in their office – they all went to the fire. Then the policeman decided to check the refrigeration refrigerator. It turned out that there is a huge amount of beer stored there – the number of bottles exceeded a hundred. Hill decided to help the firefighters crack down on so many pleasant drinks. He alone dragged almost the entire contents of the refrigerator into his car, but then the owners returned. The firemen detained the thief and handed Hill to his subordinates. The court estimated that the damage from the near-perfect theft amounted to 1237 dollars. The policeman was fired, he was deprived of his pension and sentenced to half a year of correctional labor.

Honor of the company.

In one law company in Italy Bologna worked husband and wife. Soon the employer found out that they posted information about themselves on the swingers’ website. This was the reason for the dismissal, as the couple violated the ethical and moral standards of the company. Spouses do not need a lawyer, because they are lawyers themselves and perfectly aware of their rights. The pair loudly declares the adopted policy of double standards. They require the boss to explain how he learned about the announcement on the website of swingers. Perhaps he himself was there? A similar story happened to an American soldier who was sacked because of his desire to diversify his life. He was tired of the family routine and posted an ad on the swingers website. The authorities learned about this step and also fired the officer. But the young fan of thrill decided to leave a last memory of himself – he ordered two hundred bracelets with the inscription “Live right” and gave them to the soldiers.

The one on top of it all smeared in the mud. Nevertheless, rabies soon passed, and from the impact there was only a trace on his leg. The boss generously forgave the driver. But when he broke the loader in a week and the door in the warehouse, the chief was forced to fire his abuser.
