* Sergei Korolev (the head of the Soviet space program during much of the [[UsefulNotes/TheSpaceRace US-Soviet race to the Moon]]) was notorious for telling a subordinate they would be fired, and then asking where they were the next day. Eventually the engineers got used to this and just continued to show up for work.

** This example might be more of [[UltimateJobSecurity a subversion]], actually, since the only times Burns actually seems to sack Homer are when he's done thing that really ''are'' examples of gross incompetence and stupidity. Burns never fired Homer for suing him after he hit Bart with a car, or for standing up to Burns when he sexually harassed Marge, or even for thwarting Burns' campaign for governor. Another way it's a subversion is that Homer seems to be able to get his job back despite his incredible incompetence and gross stupidity.

Bosses in the TV world have apparently never heard of such things as wrongful termination or hostile workplace lawsuits. And neither has the poor fired employee, who will likely spend most of the time dejectedly scanning the want ads while his concerned family looks on instead of planning some kind of legal recourse.

* Roman Abramovich of [[BritishFootyTeams Chelsea FC]] is almost as bad as Mr. Spacely. There have been nine different managers (Ranieri, Mourinho, Grant, Scolari, Hiddink, Ancelotti, Villas-Boas, di Matteo, Benitez and Mourinho again) since 2004.

** During training camp and even late in the season, it's not uncommon to have a player be cut or waived and then resigned a couple days later, depending on how the season is going.

* PlayedForLaughs on the ''VideoGames/TeamFortress2'' blog with a series of blog posts detailing how Creator/GabeNewell had just learned that he could fire people and subsequently got DrunkWithPower and ended up firing all but two of the employees at Valve.

*** In Japan, the ethos of "lifetime employment" means that outright firing or laying off someone is considered disgraceful for both the company and the employee. So employees on the way out would be placed into a "banishment room", where they are given meaningless busywork to do. The shame of being so treated generally means that the employee would quit on short order.
