Why did the Boss fire him?

There’s this Adnan Ali  who was working for a multi-millionaire as a house guard. One day, while the millionaire was driving out to catch an early morning flight to conclude a business deal,  Adnan Ali  ran out from the guard house and stopped the millionaire’ s car just right in front of the gate.

He said ‘Sir! Sir! Are you going to board a plane?’

‘Yes, why?’ asked the millionaire.

‘You had better cancel the trip. You see, last night I dreamt about the plane going to crash.’

Curious over the early morning fright that  Adnan Ali  had given, the multi-millionaire decided to cancel his trip.

‘You better be damn right for this is a million dollar deal.’
The following day, there was a news report that the plane which the millionaire was supposed to take had indeed crashed.

‘Thank God, I cancelled the trip’, the rich man said realising that what Adnan Ali had said had come true, he summoned Adnan to see him. When Adnan came that morning, the millionaire gave him his salary and FIRED him.

WHY did he do that?

Use your brain.

Just imagine you are Adnan Ali  and you have saved your boss’s life.

Ok. Give up?

Just scroll down for the answer .


Adnan Ali was supposed to guard the house at night.

NOT to Sleep and Dream all night!

ADVICE: So, GO BACK TO WORK, and don’t try to save your boss’s life. 🙂

    Don’t Agree with boss as he is expected to check background of all security guards & those with any special instincts, are to be verified for fraud.How is that guard develops this on joining/later.Imagine if boss lost deal.Anyway it is fate decides our living.Anyway interesting observations

    The boss is mean, he is wicked and an ingrate! Should he not be grateful to almighty Allah for using the guard to save his life? The purpose for which the guard was hired was to protect and save thre life of the live of the boss and he has done more extra ordinarily! Shit! How deep can a man sleep before dreaming? One may just doze and had dream if he is endowed. Which one is better, to save the boss life as the guard did or save his own job and allow the boss to go on the trip and die? Allah will always reward good deeds with good rewards. The boss has done vice-versa and would definitely be punished for his action. All capitalists should know that God is more powerful and full of rewards.
    Thanks Sarah..

    It is an academic decision devoid of any human consideration,strength as well as weakness.
    My guess before reading about the reason for the decision was probably the fear of the boss about the power of the watchman, and how he could use it in future for his personal interest.

    that was cool and funny

    It is not matter of advice in this story, rather then only find clue on which the boss fired the Guard, which is, guard was sleeping in the duty time. So many gays find that clue.

    Guards do extraordinary efitiancy, (bed shagoon) thats why he was fired……

    they way is not good that a guards communicate with his boss………….:):)

  11. Farshad October 5, 2012 at 12:23 PM #

    Boss should not do that, because, sleeping of the guard caused that he ought to be rescued.

  12. Wasim October 3, 2012 at 11:35 AM #

    Non-sense Boss…
    1. He should fire his guard on the same reason when his guard told him about his dream of the last night without knowing whether the dream is true or false rather after one day when his dream came true.

    2. He should change his designation as personal advisor and should provide him an AC room for a better sleep. 🙂

    Lazy Bone’s Comment is nice! As are others, too. But this stands out!

    I know bosses are hated; but they are necessary, too!

  14. Fatemah June 20, 2012 at 4:42 PM #

    The boss could have kept a new guard and could have sayed to Adnan Ali to keep dreaming and keep saving his life.
    But even though nice story Sara!
    KEEP IT UP!!!

    Hi Sara, Hope your are fine,, I agree with Abdulla, the guard supposed to be awaiken at night and not to sleep, but I still find that was a taugh judgement made by the millionarie, he could gived him a sort of final worning instead.

  16. Dr. Md. Golam Mostafa April 20, 2012 at 7:35 PM #

    If I was the guard’s boss, I would promoted him to a higher position. I would rather change his job responsibility and allocate him more time to sleep both at day at night to dream for his boss. In his position, I would recruit new experienced guards for my house. After all I am a multi-millionaire and be able to pay the guard. Hah! I am joking.

  17. Abdullah April 15, 2012 at 4:11 PM #

    The guard was hired to guard the house during night but not for sleeping and dreaming.

  18. Tota April 14, 2012 at 5:30 AM #

    He was fired because the Boss didn’t wanna lose another million dollar
    He would rather die >.<

  19. Gusen April 11, 2012 at 11:07 PM #

    He was fired to not know the secret of his Boss

  26. Shrenikdalal August 2, 2011 at 12:40 PM #

    It was misteke of Guard to sleep in the Duty time. Of course he savedthe life of Boss and he was awarded but Boss did right thing  to fired him after he awaerded him.

    Guard received Award as well as Punishment of Fired too. I liked this created story.

      guards works at different times such as separate morning shifts, evening shifts and night shifts. Night shift guard can sleep in the morning when he is off duty.

    I think the the advice should be read as follows:

    So, GO BACK TO SLEEP, and don’t try to save your boss’s life. It’s not worth it!
