Back when I thought that being in charge of a bunch of lifties was a good career choice for myself...
I have absolutely fired someone ion a team meeting for the same reason; Lying about a call off and then getting caught red-handed.
He's not mean, just someone with a job to do and no time for people who aren't reliable. Other than assault on a customer or shooting up on the job, I always said that lying to me was about the only thing that would get you fired on the spot. I've also sent a roommate to wake someone up who thought they could get away with nursing a hangover in a dark room on the busiest day of the year.
That video gave me flashbacks. Thank god that everyone didn't carry a recording device in their pockets back in those days or I'd be on youtube too
