How To Get Fired

"You'll pay for this."

From job after job my grandmother was fired.

"You'll pay for this," she would say. Sometimes she would say it while slightly waving a fist back and forth, for emphasis. The words would creep out of her mouth as she burned her eyes into theirs.

The store managers would try to reason with her, to explain the problem, but it never helped.

"You'll pay for this."

But they were right to fire her--she was a cashier and the customers did not appreciate her humor.
