Putting The Fired Into Hired

| Working | February 23, 2015

(I’m the manager and have just hired a new cashier. This is his first day, getting things ready to start his very first shift. It’s the day before Super Bowl Sunday.)

New Hire: “Do you think I could have tomorrow off? I didn’t think you would hire me so quickly and I was going to watch the game.”

Me: “Sorry, we require at least a week’s notice for time off unless it’s an emergency.”

New Hire: “Then could I leave early today?”

Me: “…You know what? Why don’t you just go home now and maybe we’ll call you the next time we have another opening.”

Other Cashier: “That was the quickest I’ve ever seen someone get fired.”
