I really never thought about the term “fired” or how it originated. Do any of you know how it got started? I was watching “Larry’s Country Diner” on RFDTV last night (one of my favorite shows) and other than some music and fun, they give some history and facts. They said that “fired” originated many years ago when a village wanted to get rid of a family that was always causing trouble and was disliked by everyone else living there. So, to get them to move, the village banned together and burned down the offender’s house. They were forced to leave by fire; or fired as it became to be called. So, being kicked out of a job was to be “fired”. Now I bet you couldn’t live another week without knowing that tidbit of information; yeah right. BTW, I have never been fired, but laid off a couple of times.
Don’t forget that today is Veteran’s Day so take some time to remember the men and women who protected our nation. Now, I need to get back working on my project. You all have a good day now, you hear?
