Fired From Your Job in Four Simple Steps

The first day, week, month of a new job can be daunting. Here's how to get fired without waiting until the end of the usual trial period.

IN THE BEGINNING - you've just landed a job. You've endured the application, the interview, waiting for the phone to ring - you were almost a nervous wreck. While you quietly hoped and prayed that you'd been successful, you also tried to brainwash yourself into believing that perhaps it wouldn't be that bad if you weren't successful after all.

But in all honesty,you sat - and waited - and hoped - and prayed. You found you were so engrossed with worry and anxiety that you had to peel yourself off the ceiling when that call did finally come through.

SUCCESS - you got the job. You were absolutely beside yourself with excitement. You wanted to scream it from the rooftops. But your nerves started giving way and by the time your starting day dawned - you were almost a wreck again.

REALITY HITS - the first day was horrible - a nightmare. Everyone was lovely and helpful but you quietly watched the clock as it ticked through the hours. By the end of the first week, things had improved very slightly - but not enough - and you started plotting your own downfall - how to get fired. You thought you might have started to enjoy it if you had given it a chance - but you just didn't want to do that.

PLOTTING BEGINS - Tuesday of the second week - you took a sicky. You rang in - this was not received well. On top of this you were late in the following morning and the entire office watched your entrance. Second bad mark.

NOT IMPROVING - none of it helped to make you feel better - although it SHOULD have because you realised you were probably about to be fired - and that WAS what you wanted - wasn't it?? Your boss wanted to 'have a word'. Then you were rude to the boss.

THE LAST STRAW - you left the office, closing the door behind you - right in your boss' face. You didn't realise he was following.

You were fired on the spot.

MORAL - most businesses do have trial periods - put in place for exactly these reasons. These feelings are very common and things do usually improve as time passes - just don't make any hasty decisions that you could regret.
