Fun fact: in Japan they actually have Smile Schools for employees so that they appear more friendly mostly for foreign customers. It isn't that the Japanese look grumpy, they just feel it inappropriate to show a lot of emotion.

1. Smoke weed
2. Go to work, high and happy.
3. ?????
4. Profit!

On a more serious note, can you get fired for beining grumpy? Is that a valid reason anywhere? As long as you do your job, I'd say.

Depends on the job. If you're a telemarketer or a waiter a pleasant attitude is necessary since you're dealing with people and I imagine a grumpy one could get one fired since it's unprofessional.

They may have been looking for a valid (kind of) reason to fire OP. Some employers just want to get rid of people they generally don't like and will find any excuse to do it.

It is possible to be fired for that in some lines of work, especially jobs where people have to deal with customers and the public all the time.

I once got counseled(not really punished) at work for the same thing years ago at a job where I was a janitor at a University and my bosses were asked to pull me from the building because I was intimidating people because I never seemed to smile, and it made the students and building users afraid to talk to me, and afterwords, I smiled more and they relaxed as well.

Yes doc! She's right! You're just jealous that you are a responsible professional and you have a job that matters. Stop being a douche about it, not everyone can work at a convenient store! Some people like yourself have to do the crappy jobs. Like being a doctor. Maybe if you work super hard, one day you too can smoke before work and brag about it.
