Your douchebaggery is showing. You might wanna cover that up.

As for me, I've never been fired, but I did quit once due to me being fired anyway if I didn't. I kept showing up late, missing days, received multiple warnings for it, and I never got better. Eventually I called in, and said I wouldn't be showing up anymore.
I got another job a couple months after. Everything's working out great for me today.

Yes, I was working for a LAME department store - even rhymes with Lame ....AMES. They were a terrible, discount retailer and I worked in advertising - I complained that the bosses were smoking inside the office - hahah silly me - I didn't last long.

Nope I haven't been fired. Oh wait, does layoffs count? I have had a business close and they had to let everyone go.

Yes a I have.
I am going to tell you the story but please bare in mind that both my parents are black and white Africans I am mixed race and not racist, funny enough that's why I was fired- for racism.
A few years ago I used to work as a restaurant supervisor and there was an African male staff (Mr S), that didn't take too kindly to women giving him orders, especially because we both applied for the supervisor position and I got it.
Since that day we kinda started a little silent war however, one beautiful morning it became verbally offensive.
Mr S decided that chatting with the chefs was more important than to do what I had asked him. We were running late to open and he refused to help out so when I called his attention he didn't like being told off and started shouting a lot of nonsense, to which I responded. The problem is that one of my responses was : " Mr S you are not in Africa anymore so please don't talk to me that way, in Europe we respect women."
He then wrote a three page letter to the head office demanding my dismissal. I was gutted! They showed me the letter and I asked: " Do you think I'm racist, I mean look at me?" They said they don't but must follow procedure so I was to have a disciplinary meeting in due time, but in the meantime under no circumstances I was to interact with Mr S at all. Obviously me being me left the office fuming and met Mr S on the stairs, bumped on his shoulder and said " I hope you are happy now, I can get sacked because of you." He then run back to the office saying I provoked him again. In the end I was so upset I never showed up for the meeting and handed in my dismissal.
1 year later the boss opened another restaurant, I applied and she gave me the job immediately. She then told me that she never thought I meant it in a racist way and that Mr S had in fact to learn how to be more civil.

Nope.

If I'm ever gone from a company, it is due to a file of resignation.

Nope. Plus I've never felt the need to resign from anywhere due to a bad experience.
