Another poster wrote they would get fired over "how stoned I am when I come into my shift." They added, "it makes it easier to deal with our customers."
A woman wrote she charges people "hundreds for wedding cakes." She revealed that each one is made of cake mix worth "$1 a box at Walmart."
Job market secret
A person wrote they are looking for a job. What's the big deal? They said, "If my employer found out, they'd dig up an excuse to force me out as soon as they could."
Restaurant employee's confession
A person who works in an upscale restaurant disclosed they "sneak into the freezing room and eat all sorts of delicious food." They added, "I'm not even eating at home anymore." They do not feel remorse and blame it on the unfair wages.
A guy who is an apartment maintenance person confessed, "if I'm hungover or something, I'll grab a set of keys for a vacant apartment and take a long nap."
A photographer shared how they lost a precious piece of jewelry while shooting. They found it and hid it among the boss' papers. When the boss asked them to come to the office, they were sure he would fire them. However, the boss only said they missed photographing the piece.
A supermarket worker told fellow Redditors: "I eat and take home with me food I'm not supposed to every day. The way I see it, that food would go into the waste, so I'm basically a hero."
A nanny wrote the children she takes care of are supposed to watch TV for an hour a day. However, "when I'm tired/not feeling good, I'll let them watch for most of the day."
A woman said she was left alone in the boss' office for a month and all she did was take suggestive photos. She is still doing the same at her desk "when no one is around. "
"A fairly popular guy around the office," wrote that he sells marijuana to most of his co-workers. But he also has everyone "on tape doing multiple drugs with me in case they ever decide to betray me, and I will drop nukes in retaliation."
A person stated they have been "stealing all fire extinguishers to build a rocket chair." It is unclear whether it was a joke.
One Reddit user gave a simple answer to what would get them fired. They wrote, "The fact that I don't have a GED or high school diploma."
Businessperson at heart
Without further explanation, a person wrote, "I exchange the free items we get for products I actually want."
Call of nature
A person confessed they had an overly friendly encounter "in the bathroom with a co-worker." Several shared their juicy stories as well.
Honesty in Mcdonald's
A guy who works at Mcdonald's claimed he could not get fired at all. He added, "You'd almost have to try to get fired." Several commentators confirmed this statement.
An IT guy revealed, "I spend 90% of the day looking like I'm busy when I'm really just goofing off on Reddit." Many echoed his sentiments.
One person said, "When I work midnight shifts, I sleep. Most of my co-workers do, but it's technically not allowed."
A guy shared that he and his friend paint houses. While at work, they go through stuff, and that includes the most intimate items people keep in their drawers near the bed.
To answer the question about being fired, one person stated that they "wrote an article for a magazine about how silly it is to work there." Oh, the irony...
This secret is no secret at all
In all honesty, a Reddit poster wrote they would get fired over how they felt about their job. They said they share "the same secret the rest of us all have. We don't care about the company.: They concluded: At the end of the day, the only real reason we bother showing up to work is to get a paycheck to pay for a roof over our head and food to eat."
