Being fired that soon into a new job happens surprisingly often, and it's not always the case of someone doing something completely egregious. I've heard of many instances, and I've had to do it myself three times, two of which were clear (IMHO) YDIs, although one was debatable: The first was because it was discovered that the person had lied on his resume. (Inflated job title and responsibilities at a previous job, and a fabricated job to cover a period of unemployment. Discovered by the HR rep who signed him in, as she and him ended up having a shared work history. The world is smaller than most people think.) He lasted about one hour. Another time it happened because the person was a disrespectful pain in the ass, and I have a low tolerance for high-maintenance wankers. Seriously, this guy was totally sweet in the interview process, but unbelievable once he was in the office. He lasted until 3pm, and the team applauded when he was escorted out by security. The third was a tougher call, and one of those dodgy situations that I hate, having to reconcile human decency with the long-term good of the team: after the person had accepted my job offer, I received a resume from a rock-star candidate with an internal referral. I could only afford one of them, so when the person on his first day showed that he wasn't as strong as we had hoped, I let him go at the end of the day (with one month's severance), in order to land the rock star. And these incidents are pretty mundane. If you want a bottomless supply of crazy-weird workplace stories, befriend your local HR rep. They live in the nexus of office weirdness.

No shes right. You gotta go to college most of the time but there's still enough places that hire without it and turn it into a career that you'll like.

Have to say, I give him props. In just 45 minutes, can't even do that intentionally. Most stuff, you'd expect they'd let slide on his first day. So yeah, definitely YDI
