Fired for Laughing

We posted about the waitress who was fired for cutting her hair for charity before, but this one is even better: Darra Kollios got fired because she was laughing!

"I had a customer at the bar and the owner came up to me and said, 'Please stop laughing,' Kollios said. "We giggled -- the guy at the bar and myself. And then I said, 'Are you serious?' And he said, 'Yes, if you laugh again, you will have to go home."

Kollios said she was then fired on the spot.

"Under Florida law, employees are considered "at will," which means they may be terminated for any reason as long as they're not under contract and it doesn't involve age, sex or race discrimination."

Wow, you Americans really seem to have NO rights in your own country.

If you want to hear the laugh, watch the video at the link.

And there wasn't necessarily more to the story. Ever had a boss who was just a douchebag? It's not such a stretch.
