... and she's getting fired for the second time this week.

My superior terminated this gal on Monday afternoon after she pitched an f-bomb laced tantrum regarding inappropriate footwear (flip-flops) and cell phone usage at her position.

When I arrived at 9 a.m. today, she was working like nothing had happened. The gal we had scheduled to cover her shift reported that they both arrived at the same time, and the terminated employee told her that the schedule was wrong, sending her home.

I decided to go the no-drama route and let her work the shift, which ends at 3, then fire her upon the arrival of her relief. She hilariously asked me for a new employee handbook about an hour ago, planning on making some sort of trouble after the fact.

Anyways, I'm about to get cursed out by a hood rat. I didn't hire her, and I have no emotional attachment, so the only real interesting part is, unlike my boss, I always wish the person the best in their future endeavors. WWE-style.

This is going to be great.

Record everything. She could make outlandish claims.

I worked at an IB once where the CEO cam eout and fired a Sr banker.

The banker walked into his office, locked the door, and went back to work.

The CEO was outside the door screaming at him to get the fuck out.

He just completely ignored him.

He came back in the next day and acted like nothing happen.

The whole thing was so crazy and bizarre that they just let him keep coming back in.

He ended up getting fired permanently a few months later after he kicked a flight attendent in the shin and got charged with some sort of federal assault charges.

True story.

Agreed.

I'm also hiding my personal laptop and phone, in case she goes into "break shit" mode. This girl is beyond ghetto.

She is going to blame you. She had a job, then boom new guy comes in and fires her in the first week. Watch your car.

Lol. Have witnesses. And probably women witnesses. Record that shit. You are probably going to get #metoo action if not. Make sure there is security to escort her off the property. Hell have the cops there since she’s already been fired and is now basically trespassing.

It gets better: Her mom works here.

I'm probably going to fire her, too. A couple weeks was the plan, but if she freaks out, I'll go full T-800 on the staff.

Also, it's hard to be productive while killing an hour before firing someone. So I ordered myself a new mini-fridge for my office, it should hold my lunch and a couple bottles of water. I also (on the company's dime) ordered a new executive chair for my desk, and a lower back brace (my dime) for my chronic back pain.

Trying to get things done.
