no to the first, yes to the second after I was caught giving pints to mates for free.

Changed my vote, I’ve had a bunch of informal warnings but generally managed to walk it back/leave before things got to the formal stage

does being given a written warning count as charged?

I dunno, did it give you a criminal record?

Think huge swathes of my approach to life are based around “avoiding getting into trouble” and I hate it. I’ve not really developed much beyond trying to avoid getting “told off”

think it appeared on checks if I wanted to become a teacher or something for 7 years or something after the incident but other than that no.

:thinking:

I’m counting it, sorry. My hands are tied.

Only been sacked once, but plenty of warnings, all for just not working - which is a fair cop, but I’ve almost always worked for bloated frivolous commercial ventures anyway soooo whatever fuck them tbh

just checked, a caution is not a criminal record, so no

Yeah, I’m hoping for light misconduct like being late all the time or pissing the day away on the internet.

I’m not the thread police though, spill your terrible tales for all I care :slight_smile:

Idk if it counts a gross misconduct but I fell asleep at my first day at a temp job and they told me not to come back (I took sleepy antihistamines by mistake) :sleepy:
