I used to believe that when a person was "fired" from their job, that they were literally burned at the stake.

I had always heard about people getting "fired" on TV. I thought that when you were terminated from a job, someone actually set you on fire. I worried constantly that my mom would be set on fire. Of course, I now know that she was a perfectly good employee. :)

My ex~husband, after hanging up the phone one day, told our then three year old son, "Mommy just got fired from her job." He burst out in tears. It was only after he was able to calm him enough to understand him that he realized our son thought I had burned up in a fire!

I used to believe that to be "fired" meant to be killed - to be set on fire. That's why I thought people were so afraid of being fired.

I used to think that when people got fired from a job, they were put into fire. I was understandably upset when I overheard my mother tell someone that my brother in law had been fired.

When I was young and heard that a family member had been fired, I had a horrible version of that person screaming in flames ....

I used to believe that being fired actually meant being set on fire. I heard my aunt discussing some union conflict where the employees wanted to be fired. That seemed awfully morbid to me.
