The Bitterness Continues: Bitter May Not Be The Word

We had so many great entries in the Bitter is the New Black contest, that we had to post some of the other entries. Hopefully, your story won’t sound so bad after reading these.

i was working at ” a major, international” rental car company. I was working the second half of my split shift, which was 12:00 a.m. to 4:00a.m. We’d been having a rash of prank calls and one night I got one. The caller said “What kind of panties are you wearing?” and so, being the smart-ass that I am and being bored, I said “I’m not wearing any panties”. The next day my supervisor called me into her office and asked me to “have a seat. i have something i want you to listen to”. I had only been out of training for 2 weeks, so my boss was still monitoring my phone calls regularly because i was a newbie. i had to sit there in her office, in front of her and listen to the recoeding of that phone call. after i listened to it she said “i’m removing you from the payroll…you DO understand what that means?” sacked. canned.
