Fired

Famous quotes containing the word fired:

    The beaux and the babies, the servant troubles, and the social aspirations of the other girls seemed to me superficial. My work did not. I was professional. I could earn my own money, or I could be fired if I were inefficient. It was something to get your teeth into. It was living.
    Edna Woolman Chase (1877–1957)

    I worked as a waitress till I was fired because I dumped a cup of hot coffee in the lap of a half-drunk guy who was pinching my butt.
    Juli Loesch (b. c. 1953)

    We cannot but pity the boy who has never fired a gun; he is no more humane, while his education has been sadly neglected.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
