Susans Scribblings: March 2010

Why were you fired from your last job?

WHY WERE YOU FIRED FROM YOUR LAST JOB ?

I used to be a butcher, but I backed into the meat grinder and got a little behind in my work. 

I used to be an optician, but I made a spectacle of myself.

I worked on screen doors, but I strained myself.

I used to work as a hot-air balloon pilot, but my status was up in the air.

I used to work in a frozen food factory, but I got fresh and then they canned me.

I used to work in a dairy. I got fired for getting in the whey.

I lost my job at the massage parlor. I rubbed people the wrong way.

I wanted to get a job as a gynecologist, but I couldn't find an opening.

I was working in an orange juice factory, but I couldn't concentrate.

I tried to be a chef. I imagined it would add a little spice to my life, but I didn't have the thyme.

I once was a tailor, but I wasn't suited for it. It was a so-so job.

I worked at Starbucks, but it was the same old grind.

I tried working in a muffler factory, but that was too exhausting.

I tried to work at a deli, but no matter how I sliced it, I couldn't cut the mustard.

I worked for a plumber, but that work was too draining.

I even worked as a lumberjack, but I couldn't hack it. So they gave me the ax.

I tried to work in a shoe factory, but I couldn't fit in.

I became a fisherman, but couldn't live on my net income.

I was a musician, but I found I wasn't noteworthy.

I then got a job at a workout club, but they said I wasn't fit for the job.

I got a job as a historian, but there was no future in that!

I wanted to become a doctor, but I didn't have any patience."

UPDATE:  Richard Weeks supplied us with this one too funny not to include:

When I was working at a deli I got my penis caught in the pickle slicer.  We both got fired.

If you're thinking about selling, I'd love to meet with you and provide a Market Analysis and go over my Marketing Plan - it is the little things that make the difference.**
