This is a question Sacked

I've never been sacked (yet)... One company I worked for made everyone redundant on Valentine's Day. The boss handed out little envelopes. We all thought he'd bought us cards and were really touched.

...but I've never been sacked. What have you done that led to your dismissal? Are you still bitter, or was it a fair cop?

As a teenager, I had rather more money than most, because I was officially in care up until my 18th birthday, but lived in independent accommodation from my 16th.

I thus recieved 75 a week plus rent. My leccy meter was also geared down, so I spent about 1 a month on that. I thought this was normal and got quite a shock when real life hit me in the face, but that's another story...

anyhow, I used to spend lots of my money on music - mostly in the form of second-hand LP's from a record shop just down the road from college.

However, one summer holidays, I discovered drugs in quite big way (it involved a hippie festival in Cornwall and the police looking for me in 7 counties, but thats another story too...) and the main recipient of my cash was now the ganja dealers. I still liked music and still went into the record shop, where they offered me a job.

I only lasted a week, as I alternated from being too stoned to work, to too interested in finding new and cool music to serve people.

They tried to let me down gently, as they obviously still wanted my custom, so they fed me something about not being able to afford to keep me on, because something else had come up. I was stoned enough to believe that at the time, and I've only just realised as I think about it now that it was probably a total crock.
