Today, I got fired from my first-ever job. Via text. I hadn't even started the first day but I'm expected to drive an hour and a half to my now ex-boss's house to return the key. FML

My answer to that would be: #nope If he wants it delivered he can hire a courier. You're not on the payroll; don't get suckered into doing it!

Expected but no longer required.

Mail it. If they're not happy with that they can pick it up themselves. It was extremely disrespectful to be fired by text and they don't deserve any courtesy.

<p>I wouldn't spend my money on mailing it back. They can come get it.</p>

I say make him come get it to be honest.

Screw him - you don't need to go anywhere, that's the least he deserves. Besides isn't there any legal action you can take in this regard?

<p>Any job that 1. operates out of the owner's house and 2. conducts business via text is not a&nbsp;career starter anyway. &nbsp;All you missed out on was working for no pay and about eight thousand explanations of why you were really, truly, totally going to get paid tomorrow. &nbsp;Bonchance with finding a less scammy employer.</p>

<p>Mail it to him</p>

Ummm. Did u ever hear of the United States postal service, ups, or fed ex? No wonder u were fired. Probably had something to do with the mail

<p>You know those cost money, right? Why should OP spend their money getting the almost employee's keys back to him? Let him&nbsp;come and get them.</p>
