Whenever someone talked about getting fired from a job, i would picture a fat man on a pig cooker thing and people twirling him over a fire.

When I was a kid I thought if someone got "fired" from their job that meant the boss threw them in a big bonfire.

I used to believe that "getting fired" meant that if you screwed up really bad at work, the police would come and shoot you with a flamethrower. I pictured it as a garden hose that sprayed fire instead of water. To me, this explained why my mom was always so worried about it.

When I was about 4-5 my father came home and told my mother that so and so had "been FIRED". All she said was.. "Gee that's too bad" and continued eating her dinner. I was horrified and couldn't believe my mom could be so casual about something that I assumed meant--- they were tied to a stake and had a fire lit all around them and they had to stand and tolerate it, much like the days of witchcraft. Not long after that my dad was"FIRED" too--- and I burst into tears--- my parents were surprised at my emotional outburst!

I used to think that when people were fired from their job they were actually set on fire. When I was in kindergarten, my teacher was fired and when my parents told me I cried for a week. They couldn't understand why I was so heartbroken.

When I was younger (6 or 8, probably), I thought that when someone was fired from their job, they were put in a glass tube (kinda like those ones in a chemistry set, except big enough to put a person in) and got their feet lit on fire, and were launched like fireworks.

When I was 4, my mom told me that my brother had gotten fired from his job. I started crying. I thought to 'get fired' meant your boss took you out back and set you on fire.

I used to hear my dad talk about people getting fired, and I had this mental image of the poor guy running from his place of employment, hands in air, screaming, with fire coming out the door behind him.

When I was four years old, my mother told me my brother Guy was fired from his job bagging groceries. I was horrified. I pictured a man throwing a flaming towel onto my brother, while Guy frantically tried to beat the flames out.

When I heard an adult talk of someone getting fired from his job, I thought that he was actually thrown into a furnace and for a long time I worried that my father might get fired.

One day my mom told me that someone got fired from a job. I asked her what it meant and she said "Fired means when you burn in Hell" I didn't notice her sarcasm. Weeks later she told me she got fired and I started crying!

When I was 6 years old, I heard my father tell my mother that a man he worked with had been fired and my mind envisioned a man being made to walk into a flaming and burning room - but then I told myself that nobody would work at a job if they could be made to walk into a flaming room if they did something wrong. I realized that I needed to find out what "fired" meant.

In the workplace, when they said, You're Fired, I thought that an employer would be set on fire and burned to death.

When I was about 6 my mother told me that she had been fired from her job. At that time I thought that "fired" meant being thrown in a fire and burned up. I couldn't figure out for the life of me, if she had been fired, how she could still there to tell me about it.

When I was four my mother went back to college. She brought me to the art studio one day and I made a clay pot that we left to be fired in the kiln. Sometime later I learned that our milkman had been fired and I couldn't understand what he could have done to deserve such treatment!

I used to think that when somebody got fired that they would actually be thrown out of their office and set on fire, which is why I was always worried about my friend who had told me that her dad might get fired.

I used to think that when someone was 'fired' from a job, they were actually put in a firey oven and killed! I was filled with dread when I heard of anyone being fired for many years. I thought to myself, 'Those poor people!'
