Odd reason, but OK

Today I got fired from a very promising new job where I made three times my previous salary from my previous job. Why? Because of a personal belonging, my bumper sticker that says, "How’s my driving? Call 1-800-EAT-SHIT." FML
I agree, your life sucks 430
You deserved it 2 240

So your bumper sticker proved you’re a bit of a douchebag and you lost your job for it. Most major companies have standard for cars parked on company property. My company for example prohibits profanity and hate symbols including confederate flags in the company parking lot. They don’t want to ruin their corporate image by having offensive things parked outside their corporate headquarters. It’s their property, their prerogative and an at-will state.

Just wondering why you has such a sign. It is not funny, is not friendly and is not respectful towards other people. So I’m truly interested on why such a message.

If your job involves a lot of driving this is understandable.

Even if it involved driving, this still isn’t appropriate for a “professional”.

The person above you is saying the company's decision is understandable, not OP's choice in bumper stickers.

HAHA That's funny as hell! That's something I would have on my vehicle. But will refrain since my job is driving a school bus.

wow! you're such an intelligent, funny person....

yea it's just a sticker to you but to them it can mean losing clients n profit depending on the company and how you are

Seems like they probably told you to remove it and you refused. If that’s the case, you definitely deserved it.

They should have asked you to remove it first.

I didn't realize 10-year-olds were allowed to drive.
