There are many people like us who got fired from their jobs for the most unusual and unpredictable reasons. Well! seems like the bosses always have it their way. Let’s take a look at some of most dumb fuck reasons for which people were fired from their jobs.

As soon as her new employer found it, he caller he up and asked her not to come. “I’m afraid that I’m not going to be able to find a job because of my own stupidity”, was her next post.
2. Orange T-shirts took away the jobs!
14 employees of a Florida law firm found themselves suddenly unemployed in March, 2012. They all decided to wear orange on a payday, for bringing the group closer but unfortunately lost their jobs because the management felt threatened with their solidarity.
3. Make-up can also be responsible
Employees’ wardrobe choice may result in raised eye brows among co-workers but receiving a termination for this reason is very rare. In England, hospital cleaner Francine Siddaway alleges that she was fired for just this reason as her bosses thought her Egyptian-style make up was offensive.
4. ALL CAPS can be annoying too!
You definitely have to be careful while communicating through mails but at times you need to be a little extra careful. Vicki Walker just wanted to pull attention of her co-workers at ProCare Health Center towards an informative mail hat she sent. In order to do so, she Capitalized, bolded the text and put it in bright red font.
