“So I hear you lost your job,” your friend says. “How come?”

And you say….

  1. I was doing the macarena in the middle of the room because there was a caterpillar down my back, and I was disrupting the office morale.
  2. My pet dragon followed me to work.
  3. I spilled hot coffee on the boss…and I wasn’t even supposed to have food or drink in the cubicle.
  4. A random thief stole the clothes right off my back, and I was dismissed because no one believed me.
  5. An evil witch cursed me and made me slap the boss.
  6. I discovered my superiors were planning a major takeover of the entire world, and I barely escaped with my life.
  7. I was bored and so I started making gum art on the walls.
  8. I was caught writing evil rumors about the boss on the bathroom walls.
  9. I threw a fit in the factory and ripped up everything in my station, including the hats being embroidered on my machine.
  10. My knight in shining armor arrived, busted down the door and chased me all around the room trying to “rescue” me and made such I mess that I was blamed for it.
