What a hell of a week. First of all I had to work 12 hour shifts till we hired someone to cover a 3rd shift. That was alright because it gave me overtime and that makes the paychecks look good. This is not what led up to me getting fired, here is what happened. I got nominated to be on the planning committee for our company picnic. Everything was going well, we actually got the company to allow consumption of alcohol at the picnic on company grounds. We thought that we had accomplished a great change but the management came back with some very strict conditions. First it had to be supplied by the company it could not be brought on company grounds by the employees and secondly the employees were only allowed to have ONE drink, ONE F'n drink. I knew that was not going to set well with the employees that like to have a few mixed drinks or beers. We went ahead and put the rules in the flyers as we passed them out we figured it was better than nothing.
I was put in charge of eating utensils, paper plate products, napkins and plastic cups for the BBQ that was going to be catered in.....So here is what led up to me being fired at the company picnic.......I bought the plastic cups for the one drink I am including a photo which will explain a little further. Give me a break a guy can make a mistake can't he.
