    I worked for a graveyard, but I didn't dig it.

    This reminds me of an old friend who was a pun genius, much like our OP. Puns are not easy, some have a knack for it.

    I used play bass, but it’s scales were too slippery.

    I used to write computer code, but they said I couldn't keep up with the program.

    I gave up my seat to a blind person in the bus. That is how I lost my job as a bus driver.

    My boss told me to have a good day, so I went home.

    I was glove salesman but given the boot.

    I was a fortune teller's assistant but told I had no future.

    I was an electrician's apprentice but couldn't make ends meet.

    I used to be a welder, but couldn't bear the lifting because I had acetylene legs.

    I was once a gold miner, but it didn't pan out.
