Kill me now

Today, my boss had a lengthy and obnoxiously egocentric conversation with a colleague. After she left across the office, I stood up, looked over at my colleague, and made a sarcastic "shooting myself in the head" gesture. I saw my boss staring at me over a cubicle wall as I turned around. FML

#13 I didn't realize there was a special magical arbitrary requirement that the first comment had to be funny. I personally believe that all comments should make sense and yours fails to do that.

34 Its true the majority of adults are straight, but I still don't get why you would think its okay to risk your job status just to get out of trouble...

I know it's different for every country, but in the US the bosses can fire you for little to no reason legally. Your next job would ask you for a reason to why you got fired, but if you don't have one they might just call your old place and ask what happened.

Previous employers are not allowed to discuss why they fired their employees. They can only discuss things like length of employment and starting/ending pay.

#49 they can lay you off but shaking unemployment benefits is near impossible if the employee wasn't absolutely dangerous, so many employers find it more financially logical to keep the employee (and usually urge them to quit, therefore severing their shot at unemployment claims).

To be fair, this time didn't end up being behind her back. So if the others WERE behind her back, why hope he doesn't have a record of doing that?

Ydi, shouldn't have done that at all, let alone done that without checking to see if your boss was gone yet. Hopefully she has some kind of sense of humor and let's you keep your job...

Sounds like you have a shotty work ethic. Maybe it's time to glock down your priorities and determine if your in the right line of work, or if it's reached a hollow point.
