When I came to work the next afternoon, my boss pulled me into the office.
Everyone at work knows that we aren’t supposed to use marijuana, but almost everyone does! We’re only about an hour from a state that allows recreational cannabis. My boss knows that we use marijuana and the only thing he has ever said was don’t work under the influence. I totally respect that rule and I have never used any cannabis products at work! That is why the story is so ironic. I went to service a furnace and the customer was acting genuinely strange. I tried to avoid the lady, because she kept looking at me like I had a third eye or an extra arm. I worked on the furnace and fixed the problem. When I was done, I presented the customer with an invoice for the furnace repair! She told me that it was too much money and she claimed that I was trying to jack up the prices. I provided the lady 10% off and she wasn’t glad. I told her that I would adjust the price, although she could call my boss to discuss the issue. When I came to work the next afternoon, my boss pulled me into the office. He told me that he had to fire me. The lady called the corporate office and told them that I was cursing and swearing and I reeked like cannabis. The corporate office told our boss that I had to be drug tested on! Both of us knew that I wasn’t going to pass the test, so he provided myself and others an opportunity to resign first instead. I wasn’t doing anything wrong, but the complaint still caused me to lose our task.
