Not me, but my DAD once heard his father mention people getting fired at work, and he thought they were engulfed in flames.

I used to think that getting fired from your job really meant that you would be set on fire. I learned that my mom lost her job when I was about 7 and I was scared for a while that she was going to be burned up. When it didn't happen, I figured it out.

When I was young, I used to believe that "getting fired" meant that a person would go to the boss's office and the boss would pour a ring of gasoline around the employee and then set it on fire and make them sit in the ring as they got yelled at.

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.

I cant believe i believed this...i thought that getting fired meant that you did something wrong in work so they gave you a burn or a cut. It was all my dads fault. He was a carpenter so often he would get cuts. He would tell my mom that he did something wrong like doing this to fast and he would get cut. I also heard him say once that Ralph, a man who worked for him, got hurt because he was doing things half fast so he had to fire him.

When I was quite young, Dad would sometimes bring me with him to the office on Saturdays, when he was catching up on work. He told me not to break anything, or he would be fired. Of course, I believed that meant they'd set fire to him . . .

i had never heard the phrase "fired" before. the first time i saw "cat in the hat" and the fish said sally and conrad's mom would get fired, i thought "why would they kill her because her place was messy? thats cruel!" and asked my mom why she would get fired.

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.
