I worked as an english teacher at my country and for about 1 year and a half I had never missed a day of work. One day I asked them for a day off on a saturday 1 week before the actual saturday that I needed to be off. To be completely honest here I was going to a farm that day for religous reasons.
They declined it, said I had to work that saturday. I was okay with it, but then at friday night for some reason I decided I'd go to the farm, I went to school and told the secretary I wasn't going to work the next day and I headed to the farm.
When I got back to work on monday my boss was burning with hatred, he said my attitude was outrageous and irresponsible. I kinda had to agree, a few weeks later I was fired.
What should I say on my next interview, when they ask that question: 'Why did you leave your previous job?'
Should I be honest and tell what happened, or should I translate it into something else?
