No one likes to lose their job. When the economy takes a turn for the worse, sometimes it can’t be helped.

And then there are times when it seems like maybe the boss is to blame.

Here are 12 reasons why some truly bad bosses gave their employees the axe.

1. They say “know your worth”

But do they mean it though? Honestly, the nerve.

2. Last one hired, first one…

Sacrificed at the altar of marital harmony? Eesh.

3. Do as I say, and as I do

Even if it’s totally illegal. Wow!

4. Yelling at doggos crosses a sacred line

They say you can tell a lot about the way a person treats their dog.

But should the dog have even been there at all? Was this a trick?

Frankly, those bosses sound pretty awful.

As annoying as job hunting can be, I think most of these people would be better off in new jobs.
