Going to work every day can be soul-sucking all on its own.

But we all have to pay the rent, so losing your job is typically worse.

And then there are jobs like these, where getting fired almost seems like a blessing in disguise.

Here are 11 absolutely out-there reasons that people were given for being let go.

1. Trying to do the right thing

I mean. I feel like this is one thing that should be protected by law.

7. Don’t look, don’t speak, don’t think

This one is just crazy unless you asked them WHERE they were sunburned…

8. Be the mannequin you want to see in the world

Don’t gain weight, lose weight, cut your hair, dye your hair. Stay exactly the same.

9. Be yourself

Unless your boss doesn’t like who you are. Then be someone else.

10. Above all, be on time

Zero tolerance. No exceptions. Not even for comas. Ouch.

As long as your best isn’t better than your boss’s best.
