Today, I got fired because I abruptly hung up on my boss while being pulled over for talking in a hands free zone. I also got a $300 fine. FML

sorry, it is a bad day for you but if you were on the phone when you weren't meant to be then YDI because that could endanger other people and yourself

You deserve the fine, but not being fired. Have you explained why you had to hang up?

funny how people always say "you shouldn't have done this" like OP didn't already know that. -_-

I think if you proved to him with the fine to your boss, I wouldn't think he would have fired you. Maybe talk to HR if your in a place where they can't fire you without a legitimate excuse.

Well, now your hands are free to pursue other opportunities!

You already had the ticket when you saw the lights

If talking to your boss is that important, put your phone on speaker in the cup holder.

This is when people respond with “But I didn’t know that the rules also applied to me.”

YDI... and I think you would be better off without a boss who demands you answer the phone at all times. I've done it twice, then stopped. Voicemail and text exists for a reason. Everyone knows that if I don't answer I'm busy driving, I don't even read or respond to texts. If it was a requirement from work to answer your phone at all times, a hands-free kit would have been my first priority. There really is no excuse in the world for putting others (and yourself) in danger when driving a death-machine and distracted by your phone. Hope you get a better job with a less of an a-hole of a boss. Learn from this before you kill someone please

well... that was just inconsiderable

Boss can't get mad for hanging up on them if you never picked up *thinking man meme*
