In most workplaces you have to push the boss pretty far to get the sack – but as these confessions prove, that isn’t always the case.
In a new thread published on the secret-sharing site Whimper workers have revealed some of the truly bizarre reasons they’ve been fired.
Making use of the app’s anonymity settings, disgruntled former employees spared no scathing detail in their tales of unreasonable bosses.
One person claimed to have lost their job because they didn’t call in sick after falling into a coma, while another was told they were spending too long on the toilet.
In a more unsettling case a woman told how she was shown the door by her boss because she refused his sexual advances.
Other workers recalled being fired for having time off to attend a funeral – or even, in one case, for yawning too often.
