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.

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 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.

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!'

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 5 or 6 I thought getting fired was a HORRIBLE thing; being lit on fire due to your job! I was so worried my dad would get fired.

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 little, I took language very literally. When I would hear about someone being "fired", I thought that meant their boss came out with a flamethrower and set them on fire.

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 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 5, my best friend told me that she heard her father was "fired" from work. We discussed this to figure out what it meant. We finally decided it meant that his boss put him in the center of a circle and built a ring of fire around him!
