So technically there WAS an 'On the job stories' thread but it didn't let me reply in it so I decided to basically make my own. What are your best work stories, it doesn't have to be a job necessarily, just anything you've done where you've worked (so can be volunteering.) Stories can be funny or sad, or impressive. I've got 1 right now actually. My school has volunteering requirements (10 hours minimum) as part of its curriculum, so I decided to volunteer at my local library. The woman in charge of volunteering put me on a 2 hour shift to "help us organize." It amounted to me shelving books for 2 hours which I could do in 30 minutes, so I started slowing down and being more meticulous, sometimes reading the books I got (I was usually placed in the comics section cause I was the only dude who volunteered at that time.) Eventually she saw me and said "you don't seem to be working at your usual rate, in fact you've seemed to be slowing down quite a lot lately, I don't think this is a good fit for you." So basically I got fired from a volunteer job.
