    If your spelling is any indicator of your work performance, then your boss will have no problem getting a list of "evadense" against you. icon_lol.gif

    Other than that, we know nothing about you or how you work, so advice is useless.

    Well difficult to give you really accurate advice since we don't know the specifics, but I can say, make sure to document the objections (the fact you did your work properly) and if possible, bring it to others' attention (maybe your bosses boss) in a way that is absolutely non threatening to your boss. If you get fired, you may have a grievance process, but I'd also strongly encourage you to look around as well. You might find something out there you'd rather do (a better position.. who knows!? DON'T WAIT AROUND AND DO NOTHING!

    Don't worry about losing your job and it'll be the best thing for you. You can always get another job.

    Hang in there, start looking for a new job. Life is too short to deal with shitty people.

    Those are signs that you should start looking for another job. Not sure if you should your current job as a reference though...

    Some bosses tend to give good references on bad (or disliked) employees just to help get rid of them...as long as the employee still works there.

    Some line managers are horrible. I would look for a new job and if your current line manager gives you a bad reference the new employer will see it for what it is - an act of spite. My old line manager would always make veiled threats such as remember who is writing up your appraisal when it came to making me work 10 hour days but only paying me for 7.5 hours. What it comes down to is just grinning and bearing it until a new opportunity comes up because you can never win against those people.

    but if you ask for reference they know you want to quit?

    We waste too much life obsessing over jobs.
    I stayed way too long at a job where they didn't like me and I didn't like them. When I left, they gave me everything I asked for.

    Ask.

    As many have suggested, I would start to look for new employment. Not because your boss is awful, but because you have the option to be happy.

    Whatever his reason for being a douche, is none of your concern. He might be getting heat from hire up. Maybe his home life is screwed, maybe he hates gays, or maybe your performance hasn't been up to his standards lately.

    All except for the last, are things you can't do a thing about. You should at least find out what it is that has set him off, because you can't fix what you don't know is wrong.

    If you really love your job, make sure he can't question your work. Instead of showing up 3 minutes late (which adds up to an hour in a four week period), show up 15 minutes early. Check, double check, and triple check your spelling, (No shade, just tea), make sure your inventory is tight with no errors. If you handle money, make sure your till is balanced to the penny every day.

    If your job deals with customer service, make sure you are giving the best you possibly can within the realm of company policy.

    In the meantime, just keep swimming until the tide changes, and keep your eyes open for better opportunities.

    Just keep moving forward and trying to be cool. If he fires you, ask for a severance package and for a good recommendation, don't burn bridges. Move on and find another job, career. Life is about change, embrace it if the change happens.

    We have no idea what you do for work, or where you live. But generally, as others have said, its time to look for another job. In anticipation of possibly being unemployed for a time, save every penny you can. Maybe this is a good time to get a start a new career path, or move to another part of the country. As to references - most employers no longer give references beyond dates of employment because they don't want to be sued for libel.

    Look for another job, but remember that all jobs have rules: if your clothes violate the dress code, you have to wear other clothes. If you're late (even if it's only 3 minutes) make a point of arriving at least 10 minutes early. Everyone makes inventory mistakes and that's understandable, and getting in a huff about one or two errors (depending on the inventory) is unreasonable, but your boss might be getting heat from someone else and he's taking it out on his subordinates. If you're not happy, get out of there and find someone that you'll be happier doing.

    How rude. Maybe English isn't his either native tongue, or first language.

    I read an article on Yahoo about when you can tell you are about to lose your job. You may want to Google it. If you determine that they are looking for reasons to can you, best to start looking since it is always easier to find a job when you already have one. Easier to just tell employers you are looking for a better match, you are interested in working for their company because of stuff you heard, or better opportunities than why you left your last job.

    You're not going to want to hear this, but...

    From what you have said, you're not being a responsible, dependable employee.

    --You can't be late. Ever. No excuses.
    --You have to wear whatever "uniform" that is required by your employer.
    --Whatever the mistake was, involving the inventory, concentrate on doing the job the way your employer expects you to do it.

    Unless you correct these problems, it is very likely that you will be fired.

    I must agree with you, Webster. Lateness (twice in 1 week?) and job errors (1 inventory mistake is a big deal if it involves a high-value or sensitive item), are sufficient reason for termination from many jobs.

    The OP may be wise to start looking for a new job. And in the meantime start developing stricter personal work habits.
