I was once fired by the Financial Director of a company which will remain nameless (and now no longer exists) as I produced and distributed a set of figures that accurately showed the position of the company, which was not as he had presented it to the board. Not that I knew what he had said in his board report as it wasn't shared with staff. However the IT Director had told me what was going to happen and immediately re-employed me in his department, the Financial Director was apparantly furious but was himself fired 4 months later and I ended up staying there 5 years longer than he did

I came out with spots all over me, so they moved me to a military hospital and stuck me in a room on my own. No books, TV or radio. Eventually I had a visit from the WRVS lady (after about five days I think) who made sure I had lots of books, puzzles and a portable TV. The only two other visitors I had, that weren't doctors or nurses where the padre and my CO, who got panicky in case he caught something.
What did the spots turn out to be??
German measles they thought.
