Get Fired

Here are some of silliest reasons why you can get fired.

You can easily get fired for trying to hit on your boss. It is a legitimate but funny reason to get fired.

Getting Pregnant

Fighting With Colleagues
No body wants trouble mongers in their team. If you do not get along with anyone in your team and keep starting a fight for small reasons, you might lose your job. Never get into a war of words with your colleagues. It comes back badly on you.

Cocky Facebook Status
If you want to post a cocky status message about your office or job on Facebook, then make sure all the concerned people are blocked on your account. There is hardly any privacy on Facebook. So don't call in for a sick leave and then post a Facebook message saying movie was awesome!

Forwarding Wrong Emails
Suppose you get a funny mail about how your boss can make your life hell and forward it on a quick impulse. It might easily reach your own boss who is there on your mailing list. Now that will make your boss really angry. Getting fired for forwarding the wrong emails is really bizarre.
