i'm going to try to be the voice of reason here and say that we don't know the whole entire situation as to why the person who wrote this FML was fired. of course, from their perspective, they think they've done nothing wrong as would anyone else. unless their boss is a total douche bag and wants to hear it from the person who wrote this FML in court, it's highly likely that they do have an actual reason.
I doubt most people know what that means, but I'm so proud of you that you do. I think I make myself seem smart by making intelligent comments. You appear to be trying to imply that I'm not, for reasons known only to you. One of my goals here is to make people like you look foolish, but I think you've accomplished that goal just fine without my help. Well done!
If he fired you for no reason, you can take him to court for wrongful termination. What a jerk...
Are you an expert in UK employment law? It doesn't even sound like you know much about US employment law. Where I work, you can be let go for anything or nothing just like you can quit whenever for whatever. I believe that is the standard at most places. Besides, there aren't many employees around that cause for termination can't be found if you look hard enough. Read an employee handbook sometime. They're purposely written to be easy to violate.
Follow these instructions carefully: 1. Give your boss the "one finger salute" 2. Thank him over and over for setting you free from his or her unending bullshit and poor decisions 3. Call your mates and go back 4. Drink beer and celebrate your freedom 5. Look for new job in a year
I'm american, but I am here to clarify what the two finger salute is. It is basically saying "FUCK YOU", like the middle finger but used in the UK and uses your middle and index finger. But it only works when your knuckles are facing the guy you are giving the bird to.
"Prejudiced against all Americans", really? Because I called the centrist fuckwits "centrist fuckwits"? You're the only one implying it applies to ALL Americans. I explained what I meant because there still seemed to be some confusion with varying explanations being offered and cos I felt like it. Get a sense of humour or at least a sense of proportion. Making a leap from my initial tongue in cheek comment to prejudice just smacks of over-earnestness.
