Today, my boss threatened to fire me because I'm unproductive, and haven't been doing anything. He doesn't tell me what to do, and expects me to read his mind. When I ask him what he wants me to do, he gets pissed and says that I should already know what to do. FML

what kind of job do you have? though some direction is expected in most cases your boss has their own work to do and has the right to expect you know your job enough to be able to work independently.

But if nobody ever reads it - including said boss, then there's no de facto proof that OP ever did any work. Besides, I doubt that OP's boss wants him to (only ever) write memos.

Sure! You can write memos about tire pressure, tread depth, radials, rotation strategies, and so one. Even with a passing familiarity of tires, I can come up with many memo topics.
