Fired for Masturbation
I mentioned that BSW was fired once for masturbating on the job. That wasn’t strictly true, but here’s the full story.
BSW got a job at a new Indian restaurant. She was supposed to be the hostess, but due to enormously poor planning and ineptitude, BSW ended up being the hostess, waitress, busboy, and prep chef. On top of it all, the boss/owner kept losing employees because he kept asking them to marry him. He asked BSW to marry him too and when she declined he gave her a three dollar raise if she would just stay. He loved BSW and continued to ask her to marry him and would beg her to stay.
It was hectic, but she was getting all of the tips, plus her inflated salary, which came each week and always had a bonus, because this middle aged pudgy man that was an inch shorter than her hoped she’d marry him. The place was never packed and since the food was so bad it never caught on, but it was busy enough for BSW who had to run around all night.
Toward the end of one night, two weeks into the job, BSW was frazzled and needed a little pick up to make it through the end of her shift so she went back into the store room, hoisted up her skirt and began masturbating. She said it was a good one and that she definitely made sounds. The second she finished the lights came on and there was her boss, who immediately wanted to know what she was doing.
She said she was getting some more rice (not her job and not something they needed to do at the end of the night) and he kept saying, “No, you’re doing something though.” It was never clear whether he knew or not, but he fired her on the spot saying he couldn’t trust her.
My thoughts are either he kept his money stash back there and was afraid of her stealing from him or that he knew she would never marry him and was tired of paying her so much so he needed an excuse to fire her. Of course, I always just tell people she was fired for masturbating on the job, because it’s more fun to tell that story.
