It's a tough job market out there, and your best hedge against unemployment may be to watch your Ps and Qs so you stay employed in the job you have now. Monster.com has helpfully assembled a list of the top 10 ways you can get yourself fired -- from something seemingly harmless, such as gossiping about your coworkers, to something really stupid, such as drinking on the job. The top 10 things that will get you fired, according to Monster.com:
1. Lying on your job application or resume
2. Being indiscreet about your job hunt
4. Taking too many personal calls
5. Drinking at work
6. Surfing the Web excessively
7. Becoming romantically involved with the boss
8. Forgetting to double-check your figures.
