Girl Gets Fired From Her Job At Target After Prank Goes Viral

Pranks are the worst, but when executed correctly, they can get you a lot of attention. Bad attention.

Twitter user @Delilah810 found this out the hard way, after her “prank” on her best friend in the parking lot of a Target went viral. In it, she pushed that friend, who is sitting in a shopping cart, into a push. It looks pretty gnarly, but the friend was apparently unscathed:

They look like they’re having a blast, to be fair, but it’s a pretty dangerous thing to do. Darn, I sound old!

@Deliliah810’s tweet was doing pretty well already, but then she added an update:

Wow, no kidding.

She seems chill with it, though. Maybe because she’s managed to maintain her friendship, despite everything:

Though many of @Deliliah810’s fans are just run of the mill Twitter users who love a good parking lot disaster vid, there are also a wholllllle lotta people who work at or once worked at Target, too.

Man, if getting thrown into a push is what happens on a work day, what do Target employees get up to at a barbecue?

But there are plenty of people who are enjoying this story even if they have no personal association with Target.

It’s very meme-able:

And they’re loving her, no matter what she’s done:

Because they hate Target:

Don’t worry, there are plenty of other companies that could use @Delilah810’s skills:

Managers Share The Absolute Dumbest Way Their Employees Got Fired

I have never been fired from a job. Is it because I am a terrific employee? No. It is because I know how to hide all my fireable offenses. Here’s a tip. Hide in the bathroom. It is great for screaming, and crying, and its normal function.  

Turns out though not everyone knows all the secrets to avoid getting fired and sometimes proud fools get caught. Whether it was because they were caught drinking and smoking (Instead, smoke and drink in the bathroom), or because they were caught stealing (Instead, steal from the bathroom), or because they screaming at customers (Instead, scream at people in the bathroom.) 

Seriously it would have been very easy to hide these crimes but alas, hubris destroys even the laziest of employees. 

  • I hear you but…

    Every year during the holiday season, I’d warn the new hires, “listen, no matter how tempting it is, don’t steal a customer’s gift card. We can track it, I will track it and if I catch you, you will get fired. Every year people try it, every year people get fired. Don’t do it.” They do it anyway.

  • But it seemed like the perfect crime

    Girl decides to start stealing some of our products from the warehouse and sell them on eBay… as brand-new, with factory warranty. It only took a couple of weeks before we started getting calls for tech support for products with serial numbers we did not have registered as “sold” in the system. Brief investigation leads straight to her.

    She is fired (of course), and legal action pursued, but the sad angle to the story is that her father worked there too, and we were forced to make him stay at home with no pay until it could be determined beyond any doubt that he wasn’t involved.

  • Why do I need money for things? when I could just steal things?

    Offered a job to a candidate, but had to step out of the office to grab some paperwork. Came back and a bus pass that was on the desk was missing. Newly hired employee stole it. I asked him to return it because a previous candidate dropped it and he said he needed it more than they did and walked out.

  • They’ll never catch me.

    New guy, around 20 yrs old or so, called in sick saying he thinks he had a stroke. Since he lived across the street from the store where we worked, we all then stood and watched through the store’s glass door as he packed up his truck with beach gear and drove off with his girlfriend. Fired the next day.

  • A 40% tip.

    Forging a tip on a receipt. Like adding $ 20 wasn’t going to get caught.

  • Don’t ask for permission. Ask for forgiveness.

    During my first real dev job, the company I was working for tried to implement a bunch of things to improve efficiency and employee satisfaction. Two interesting programs they implemented were ‘work from home’ and agile development, along with the requisite bullpens (shared team areas). What this basically meant is that we only had to show up in the office for core hours (4 hours) 3 days a week, and the rest of time we could work in shared areas, restaurants, parks, home – you name it. Sometimes, if you couldn’t be at core hours, you would just dial in. We were young and excited and dedicated, so the core team really got a lot of good work done with this model.

    About two weeks after we started, our scrum master casually mentioned ‘Has anyone seen Phil?’ Phil was a quiet guy, and he was still answering emails and IM, so it took us a while to agree that no-one had actually seen him in a long time. She called him from the speakerphone in the bull-pen, and as God is my witness, here is the call that took place:

    • Boss: Hey Phil! What’s up?

    • Phil: Hey Boss – not much, what’s up with you?

    • Boss: Hey, we were just noticing we hadn’t seen you much lately. You ever coming back in for core hours?

    • Phil: …Probably not…

    • Boss: Oh… why is that?

    • Phil: Because I moved to Idaho.

    • Boss: …But Phil, we’re in DC?

    • Phil: I know.

    • Boss: Why didn’t you tell us you wanted to move to Idaho?

    • Phil: Oh. Because I knew you wouldn’t let me.

  • He was a High School bully too.

    I had an employee lock another employee in a closet one time. The person that was trapped called the police from inside the closet. It was quite an HR nightmare.

    Had a server drink out of the customer’s Dr.Pepper and Coke to see which was which….in front of them…

  • Technically not at work.

    Managed a long term care facility. Got a call one night from a resident telling me that the new night time worker was acting weird. This was about midnight and the shift started at 11. I called my lead (there were 3 people on duty). And asked how the night was going. She told me that “yea ‘Sally’ was sick”. Hmmmm. I put on my shoes and headed in. Now having the administrator show up at almost 1 am is never a good thing so I’m pretty sure all three of them felt scared when I showed up. I took one look at ‘Sally’ leaning against the wall, and asked her to come into my office. I asked her if she had been drinking. “I never drink at work” she slurred at me. I told her I had to have her blow into this tube. We had breathalyzer tubes that registered if they were over a specific level. The crystals changed from clear to dark blue if the alcohol registered over the legal limit. No surprise. Turned dark blue. I asked her again if she had been drinking. She admitted to have been drinking earlier in the evening. She and her friend had been doing shots up until about 10pm. ” but I’m not drunk! I stopped and ate almost 2 hours ago so it’s all out of my system”. Nope. Doesn’t work that way. “Sorry Sally, but I need to let you go. Call someone to come get you”. I told her as I was filling out paperwork for the breathalyzer usage and final check request. ” Oh that’s ok I drove in”. Nope nope nope. She then asked what time she should come in tomorrow.
    “Sally, you no longer work here. Coming to work intoxicated is not tolerated”. Oh. Really? Yes. Really. Please call someone, who has not been drinking, to come get you.
    She called about 16 hours later asking me for her next week schedule. She didn’t remember being at work and getting fired.

  • Hiding in plain sight.

    I was assistant manager at a restaurant for a while and one of the newer bussers had called in 3 times in his first two weeks. He called in on Saturday telling me he was deathly sick and couldn’t even get out of bed.

    Around 9pm after the dinner rush one of my servers ask me to go check on table 42. I turn the corner and there is the ‘sick’ busser stoned out of his mind with two buddies eating.

  • I nearly got away with it too!

    Every day at lunch, she would drink roughly half of her Jimmy Johns (or whatever) soda, then take it with her to the bathroom to fill it back up with whiskey. She did a pretty good job covering up the smell, and since she did it from day 1 it wasn’t immediately obvious that she was getting drunk.

    Found out on day 4 when she knocked her full cup over and we all got punched with the smell of booze in the afternoon.

    Smitty_Oom

  • Don’t.

    Not me, but a friend of mine had to fire a sales clerk because she stole computer duster from the office and left the sales floor during her shift to hide in the supply closet and get high with it.

    Don’t do inhalants, kids.

  • At least this has a happy ending.

    Back in my days working at a used car dealership, we had a teen come in and test drive a 1,500 (mile) Corvette, todays equivalent would be the ZR1.

    Anyway, the kid drives it around our set loop once, and is being a little waffley on if he wants to get it or not, he says it doesn’t really drive as well as he thought it would.

    My salesman told him it was user error, and he’d prove it to him, they went out for another loop around, with the employee driving it.

    He managed to get pulled over doing 135 (MPH) in a school zone, got arrested if I recall correctly. Needless to say, he was not welcome back at our store, however the teen did buy the car.

  • This is the worst thing to happen to anyone

    Not me, but my boss.

    Boss had to fire a lady in our office because she lost her “marbles” when someone ate her bagel from the fridge. She literally had a tantrum, like a toddler. Also, the girl who ate it, ate it by mistake. She thought it was a bagel from the office breakfast we had earlier that same morning (it was in the same packaging as the office stuff). Now, I absolutely hate it when people eat my lunch, but the girl who ate the bagel profusely apologized. Even stated she would go and buy her a new one right on the spot. But tantrum lady couldn’t let it go. So, that ended up being her last night.

  • Crime is pointless.

    He stole a bunch of bananas. Seriously. It was a college dining hall. He was an employee of the dining hall, and got free meals while on-shift. He was not working that day, walked into the serving area, hid a bunch of bananas in his bag, and tried to pass the cashier only paying for what was on his tray. When confronted and asked if he “had forgotten anything, maybe in his bag?” He denied having anything else. Fired on the spot. The worst part, he was on a meal plan (a kind of debit system, except you never get the money back at the end of the semester if you don’t spend it). He had plenty of money for the semester. I have no idea why he felt the need to steal bananas.

  • I thought that was more on a volunteer basis

    Guy hired to manage a store in a mall REFUSED to park in employee parking.

    As I’m sure everyone knows, mall employees have designated parking places, far from the choice spots near mall entrances. This guy refused to park there, and every time he parked illegally, the store got fined $ 100. And he parked in customer parking Every. Damn. Day.

    He was called out on it, the policy was explained over and over. He got written up. He was told that on the next infraction he would be fired. And he did it the very next day.

    Was totally blindsided when we actually fired him.

    Allthenamesareregone

  • Dumb. Weird. Sad.

    Hired a girl to work in a bagel store, who on her first day told me she couldn’t touch any of the meats because she was vegan.

    Had another guy show up for work his first day, was doing just fine, seemed to be good with the job. I went to the office to get some paperwork for him to fill out, and he was just gone. Never came back, didn’t steal anything, no explanation at all.

    The bad one was had to fire a girl for not showing up for several days in a row, saw in a newspaper the next week that she had been in jail the whole time because she had locked her kids in a closet while she was buying coke.

    bbatwork

  • Clever.

    We kept finding stock discrepancies, we couldn’t figure out for a while what was happening. The count on certain items was out (system said we had stuff that wasn’t on the shelf). Eventually found that when a customer bought something with cash, later that same day the same cashier would refund the transaction for cash with no customer around.

    They were fired on the spot – but couldn’t be charged criminally because the way the camera sat they’d been able to block the view of the cash drawer with their body and you couldn’t actually see them take the money out of the till. Even though we knew exactly when the false transactions were posted, footage placed them right there doing ‘something’ and intentionally blocking the view at that exact time, there’s only one way everything added up but they still got away with it.

    If they’d just been pulling cash out we would have caught it right away, but the counts were never out because there was a transaction in the system, so they’d been doing this occasionally for a couple months, we figured they’d gotten away with a couple grand.

    Return procedures changed after that.

  • Can’t fire them for honesty.

    Used to be a supervisor at a big store in college. Other supervisor overhears an employee telling someone he has a joint in his pocket for later. My boss calls the employee into the back office to discuss with HR. HR rep asks him if he does indeed have pot. Response????? “Nope, I smoked it already.” Almost died laughing.

    PigeonBeans

  • Awesome indeed.

    I used to work at a popular coffee chain and we had this supervisor who was an actor in all these local community theater things and wanted to get into stand up comedy. Well, if somebody was funny he obviously got ticked off that he wasn’t the one in the limelight. A new guy was hired who was really funny and supervisor was always being a dick to him, giving him the shittiest jobs and picking on him. One night, supervisor is being a complete asshole and a bunch of us pipe up to tell him to chill out and he’s being a dick. Something snapped. Supervisor absolutely lost it, went in the backroom and grabbed a bunch of frozen donuts and just came out and was throwing them at funny guy angrily and just swearing at him and berating him. Then he just walked out the back door and walked off down the street.

    We all thought he quit on the spot but he just went to smoke a cigarette and came back 10 minutes later. By that point, someone called the manager and she came in and canned him on the spot and he broke down crying in what had to be the most pathetic, snot ridden scene I’ve ever witnessed. Awesome.

    I fired an employee for being seen on camera throwing silverware and plates into the dumpster instead of washing them in the automatic dishwasher. She was… wait for it… hired to wash dishes.

  • Just give me a 20th chance.

    I used to manage a car window tint shop. We hire some young high school kid to help us clean up, grab supplies, refill inventory – basically whatever we didn’t wanna do. Kid was a self proclaimed DJ, knowing he had school and his “shows”, I told to give me a heads up when he couldn’t make it. We didn’t really need him, so he could take off as much as he wanted and we didn’t care, just an extra hand. A day or two every week, he wouldn’t show up, won’t answer any texts or calls and then show up like nothing happened. He would posts these shows all over social media, so I would text him and ask if he’s coming in. I would get tags about coming to this party and events tonight, so I would reply asking if he was calling out. Still no answer but will come after missing work saying how much he need this job and has a baby on the way (still in high school). Last straw was leaving mid shift, without a word and while attending the front, because he had a show to prepare for. Waited till he showed up again to let him know we didn’t need him anymore and he nearly cried, begging us for a second chance.

  • This is why don’t befriend your co-workers.

    Retail. Merch order was coming in. Asked him to perform a specific task related to the order. I went to follow up on a few other things. I come back. He is eating cheetos walking around the store. I ask him how he is doing with his task. Tells me hasnt started it. I explain why it was important to do it at that moment. Curses me out in front of coworkers and customers. GM fired him next day due to complaints about incident. He was my best friend. He married and had a baby and all that jazz… haven’t heard from him since that day.

  • Odds are these tickets were losers?

    Im the assistant manager, but I just have to let this story go. Hired a cashier to help with shifts (and give me days off). After about a week the big Boss and I noticed that our lottery tickets were off, and one was even fucked up(crinkly,scraped,torn). So obviously she has to go through our security tapes with management to find out the problem. So a a bit of back story before the next bit, the guy’s boyfriend at the time used to have my job, and back then the cameras were positioned differently. When he left, my boss had them moved to eliminate blind spots. So when big Boss and bigger boss opened up the tapes, they found this smart guy casually ‘dropping’ large stacks of lottery tickets, and then kicking them over to spots of the cashier area that USED to be blind spots. Not only did he get caught doing this, but because of the exact positioning of where he thought the blind spot was, his boyfriend was charged too. Needless to say, he was fired immediately. Oh, and every ticket stolen is counted as a Felony. Each. Ticket.

  • Why get a new job when you can get the oldest job?

    This actually happened at my current place.

    We had a secretary, we were all curious as what she really did during the day since it seemed like nothing got done. I ended up giving her lists to complete but she would throw them in the trash.

    I got fed up and looked at her computer at the end of the day. Which was probably shitty on my part?

    Found out she was prostituting herself with her company email.

19 Employees Come Clean About Actively Trying To Get Fired From Their Jobs

It’s no secret that a lot of people hate their jobs. Not many grow up and dream of working retail, sales, or a desk job that confines them to the same 3 square feet for 40+ hours a week. 

Why not just quit a job if it’s the bane of your existence? Aside from the obvious immediate lack of income, most of these jobs pay you just enough so that you have doubts about leaving without having something else lined up due to the financial hell storm awaiting you a week after your last paycheck.

This is where the whole ‘I’m trying to get fired’ movement took off. If you get fired as opposed to quitting your crappy job, you can go on unemployment and spend those 40+ hours a week looking for a job that won’t make you miserable. At least that’s the idea.

There’s a minority of people that simply don’t want to quit because they refuse to take responsibility for anything afterward. They’d prefer to have something or someone that they’d be able to point a finger at, even if it’s themselves while they were in that position that they were recently liberated from.

My opinion? Use your free time wisely. While it definitely does extend your work day, hopping onto the job boards on breaks at work and during any other free time you have throughout the day is infinitely less stressful than looking for a job because you have no income. After all, you may end up taking an even worse position simply to make ends meet.

Not everyone agrees with me, though. Specifically not these 19 individuals that would definitely prefer to be fired, and are actively trying to do so. Share your thoughts in the comments on whether or not you think their actions are justified.

  1. Too many want to not be responsible for their own irresponsibility.

    I'm secretly trying to get fired so I have an excuse not to adult anymore.
  2. And put too much effort in trying to get fired.

    I'm trying to get fired from my job but nothing is working
  3. More effort than they’ve ever put into anything else.

    I've put more effort into trying to get fired from work than I ever have actual work...and they still won't fire me. Wtf
  4. With so many people looking for jobs, it’s crazy to think that there are others looking to get rid of theirs.

    I hate my job but I can't quit... secretly I have been trying to get fired for a month
  5. Some feel like they’re powerless, and begin to spiral.

    My job makes me miserable. I can't quit because I won't get unemployment, and they won't fire me. I'm trapped and it drives me insane every single day.
  6. Is it all their fault though? Some companies can avoid this by being open to transfers.

    Hate my job! I suck at my job and they won't fire me! I purposely don't reach production goals so they can send me to another station.
  7. Others will wait until someone else pulls the trigger for them before embarking on a risky career move they’d had in mind for ages.

    Sometimes I want to get fired because I don't know if I will ever feel ready to do the "irresponsible" thing and quit so I can work on the life I really want.
  8. It feels as though one too many are shameless in their efforts.

    I've been trying to get fired. My job seriously will never let me leave!!!
  9. And many simply don’t have their priorities straight.

    I hate my job and am trying to get fired by not showing up so I dont have to look bad quitting yet another thing with my family watching. If I get fired I can just make up something I did wrong
  10. It almost sounds like they’re being held hostage.

    I am always late for work because I want to get fired. I am scared to quit.
  11. A few see it as a way to get the company back for the numerous times they’ve been taken advantage of.

    So, I have never been on unemployment. Sadly, my job treats me like I am their slave. I'm trying to get fired to get unemployment, in till another job comes along. Is that bad?
  12. Others don’t realize just how good they’ve got it.

    I've been trying to get fired for months now they just don't get the hints, I mean I do no work and watch Netflix all day 😂😂
  13. They blame their job for being unhappy, but refuse all options other than being fired and collecting unemployment.

    At this point today I'm trying to get fired. My job screws me over too much.
  14. The smart ones actively try to remedy the source of their unhappiness themselves.

    I mentally checked out from work the past month. I've been applying to new places at work. I want to get fired so I can leave and have something to fall back on
  15. But far too many just want to take the path of least resistance.

    I think I want to get fired from my job so I can get unemployment
  16. They feel married to the job, and want a divorce.

    My boss hates almost everything I say or do, but she won't fire me or let me resign.. So can I just fire her?
  17. People assume that it’s about their lack of work ethic, but that isn’t always the case.

    Trying to get fired since the day I started 1yrs, 2 promotions and a raise later still here
  18. But it doesn’t help when so many people respond to the question like this.

    I hate my job, but I'll never quit. So I'm trying to get fired on purpose....
  19. Hopefully more people will keep in mind that there are always consequences to those bad decisions.

    Have you ever been at work and just sit there. Trying to care about work but you're just not. Trying to get fired but never do. Ugh then again you gotta pay bills

The Playboy Model Who Body Shamed A Woman At The Gym Has Been Fired

Yesterday Playboy model Dani Mathers sparked outrage after it emerged that she had body shamed a naked woman using the showers at her gym in a Snapchat story. Mathers was quick to delete the photos when the internet didn’t agree with her snide remarks.

nakedplayboy-1024x993

Mathers later attempted to apologize, saying that she had only meant to send the snap to a friend. But the internet wasn’t having it, and Mathers ended up deleting pretty much every social media account she owned. 

And it’s now emerged that she’ll face more than just online ramifications. Heidi and Frank, a radio show which had been a regular gig for the playmate for years, told TMZ that they’re suspending Mathers indefinitely in light of the revelations.

And in a statement Mathers’ gym of choice, LA Fitness, said they were banning the model from all of their locations. A spokesman told TMZ that Mathers had violated their privacy policy and she “is not permitted back at any club, ever.”

The spokesman said that “her behavior is appalling and puts every member’s privacy at risk. We have handled this internally and also notified the police.” The gym added that cell phone usage and photography are prohibited in locker rooms, “this is not only our rule it is just common decency.”

Unsurprisingly, people were pretty happy with the news.

Good work, internet!

People Share Why They Got Fired And Some Of Them Are Hard To Sympathize With

Getting fired from a job is pretty serious…sometimes.  People took to Twitter to share their stories once the #GotFiredBecause hashtag emerged.  

While some were serious, many were able to joke about it since they were probably tweeting from the comfort of their new job’s work desk.  Let’s hope HR doesn’t decide to check in.

He might have a case here:

Some didn’t meet the prerequisites for the hashtag, but participated anyway:

This guy decided to expose a trade secret:

Going to have to side with management on this one:

That’s two for management:

Pokemon Master is a real job, isn’t it?

Uh oh:

I actually replaced the person that did this at my last job:

It’s all about who you know, after all:

A warning for everyone else today:

I thought everyone used hotels for this:

Only on Fridays:

You should’ve started it with, “No offense, but…”

Freaking leg prisons:

Three for Management:

That’s like, your opinion man:

To be fair, once you go past 2, 6 is the next logical point to stop:

This guy is officially the worst:

They were probably scrubs anyway:

Failed for not taking any probably:

Need to get those shades with the eyeballs painted on from the zoo:

It’s like Highlander, but with two weeks paid vacation:

¯_(ツ)_/¯

You were too good for that place anyway:

But ultimately:

Where you ever fired for an absurd reason?
