Am I Going to Get Fired Tomorrow?

Updated on June 1, 2015

It's not as easy as you think...

Are you stressing about the “at-will employment” agreement you signed? Are you nervous about going into work tomorrow because of that thing that you did that may or may not be work appropriate? Let me tell you this, from someone who has a lot of HR experience; firing someone is a big pain in the butt, and bosses generally do not like doing it. They are worried that the person they fired will turn around and sue the company, which makes them look bad.

If you are still worried, why don’t you ask yourself my simple list of questions. If your answer is “no” to all of these questions, then stop worrying because you are a good, decent hardworking person who will not be fired from their job. If you answer “yes” to any of these though…..there might be some trouble ahead of you.

In the past week have you?



Stolen any of your coworker’s lunches from the fridge?


Had sex in your office after hours?


Hidden a box of donuts in the freezer just so you can secretly eat them while cleaning it?


Called any of your coworkers “Mcbitches”?


Gotten so drunk at work that you told your boss to…..do dirty things to himself?

Farted in a very important meeting and then laughed inappropriately about it?


Drew a penis on your customer's caramel macchiato?


Taken an inappropriate work selfie?


Ate your bosses secret stash of rocky road ice cream?


Done any porn on the side?


Made out with your S.O when they stopped by to see you?


Called in sick just so you could play the new Witcher game on your PS4 all day?


Gotten so angry with your boss that you "accidentally" stapled your boss's hand to the wall instead of the poster you were trying to put up?


Borrowed a food scale so you could weigh your weed and your boss found out about it?


Sworn loudly at your boss?


Gotten high and taste tested all the french fries?


Ate an excessive amount of candy while on the job?


Pooped on your bosses desk?

Ask yourself...

What were the common key words in all of these questions?

INAPPROPRIATE, DRUNK, GOTTEN HIGH, GOTTEN ANGRY, STOLE, SWORE and POOPED.

All of these things are NOT OKAY in the workplace, no matter where you work and all of these are a fire-able offense because they are either not professional, or they are illegal. Always keep a professional manner at work, no matter what your are feeling. You can rage and swear and smoke pot on your own time


Basically it comes down to this:

If you haven't stolen anything, gotten drunk during work hours, been rude to anyone, acted unprofessional, pooped on anybody or threatened anyone, you will be fine. Just remember, they wouldn't have hired you if they didn't think you could do it. What your boss is looking for is someone who is hardworking, enthusiastic, motivated, will to take take on challenges and most of all, happy. If you remain positive, learn from your mistakes and show that you are dedicated, you have nothing to worry about.

Always have faith in yourself, and other people will have faith in you too. You make your own career by the choices you make and if you are constantly having fears about being fired every minute of everyday, then maybe the current job you are in isn’t necessarily the right fit for you. Stay true to yourself, remain positive and always look for that silver lining and you will be alright.
