The first day at a new job is always stressful. You don't know what you should be doing, you feel a little out of sorts, and no matter how excited you are about your new opportunity, it takes a while for you to get completely acclimated.
Well, let's hope you never have a first day on the job like A.J. Clemente did. He was all set to make his debut as one of the weekend anchors of the NBC affiliate in North Dakota, when something caused him to utter a few newsworthy, but inappropriate words. (Listen carefully to the start of the broadcast.) Clearly, his co-anchor heard it, as did everyone else.
Initially, the network suspended Clemente for the incident, but sadly, he's since been fired. It just goes to show you how important it is to keep your cool at all times. (And hopefully A.J. will land on his feet, and remember to treat every microphone like a live microphone!)
