15 Stupidest Ways to Lose Your Job

Zac Frank and Tania Khadder

15. Conference Call Hang Up

Several senior employees at a technology retailer were on a conference call with the CEO who was out of the office. When the meeting had ended, one employee said, “If that idiot tells me how to do my job one more time, I’m going to quit.” He didn’t have to. A few seconds later everyone in the room heard an ominous sound coming from the three-footed conference phone, “I’m sorry, what was that?”

She hadn’t hung up. They hadn’t hung up. That “idiot” told him how to do his job one more time: leave it.

Moral of the Story

Don’t shoot your mouth off unless you are 100% certain who’s listening. Hit the button on the conference phone until you hear a new dial tone.
