I told my boss I needed Saturday night off, it's a fairly new job so it was whatever. He said he wasn't going to give me off so I told him I was going to not be in. He said ok then you're fired.....

Makes sense. Not showing up for work can get you fired.

Hmm... Welcome to American first world problems.   You probably shouldn't be proud of this...

lol you said salary

LOL you don't know the definition of "salary".

 

Doesn't have to be an annual thing.  Could be hourly compensation or any other arrangement.

 

 

(From Merriam-Webster online) 

sal·a·ry | \ ˈsal-rē  , ˈsa-lə- \

plural salaries

 

Definition of salary

 

: fixed compensation paid regularly for services

You can tell playoff football is finally back in the air in Buffalo baby....and I'm loving every minute of it!!!!

 

This was the first thread I opened up after a long day at work and got a lot of amusement from it.  Some great posting all around in this one.  Is it Saturday night yet!?

This isn't even that hard:

 

1.  Eat a bunch of chili or pea soup before work.

2. Show up all cold and clammy, just not looking well.

3. When nobody is looking jab a finger, or feather from in your pocket, down your throat and throw-up in the worst place to throw up in at work.  Additionally, get some of your own sick right on you.  I mean really sell it, man.  The piece de resistance being you lay down right next to it and just keep moaning.  I don't care if there is a fire going on at the place of business, just stay down until you are set free.

Have you seen Fight Club? Just go into his office, beat the ***** out of yourself and tell everyone he did it

 

 

See?  There are so many good answers out there and you just have to slow down and think about them for a bit.

Now I got the extra unemployment

I don't think you do. If the state calls your Supervisor and learns the nature of your termination, you'll be lucky to get anything.

Years ago I had a boss who every once in a while we'd get into shouting matches.  Neither my job nor his was ever in danger.  I think he thought that if you got mad about something he knew you cared.  

One time he got mad at me and I yelled back at him & I said something like "I'm going to the Super Bowl, I don't care if somebody else works on this"  

When I retired , long after he left for a better job, he sent me an e-mail praising my abilities. The best part of the e-mail was when he wrote: You're the only one ever to tell me to f off, & I deserved it.

you could have said that you took a home Covid test that came back positive... just kidding.

 

Seriously though - sorry to hear.

This was a new job and not really a real career. Now I got the extra unemployment

You sound like a dirtbag and I think we'd get along just fine 😉

I have no problems with the way the OP handled this.  A POS job with a douche as a boss is not worth investing your time.

 

But let this be a cautionary tale for the newbies/youngsters out there to consult the board prior to these decisions.  Back in the day the Monday after Superbowls were extremely tough.  Luckily this year you can easily pull the cough/covid card and sleep it off.

Summed up in two tidy sentences.

Calling in "sick" isn't really an option for a lot of workers. I know that when restaurants are actually open, I can't get a Saturday off without some serious advance planning. And even then, sometimes not at all. 

 

A while back I got married on a Saturday. Not a single one of my fellow Tempo servers (there were three with whom I was VERY tight) could get off work even with AMPLE notice. 

That's why I asked the question. But it IS an option for a lot of workers too.

Oh look at the American failing to properly use the beautiful language we bestowed to you.... ;)

You missed a comma.
