“I got fired from my job as a stage designer. I left without making a scene”

"Without making a scene” means without disruption. A theatre joke is:

“I got fired from my job as a stage designer. I left without making a scene.”

The theatre pun has been cited in print since at least 2012.


18 March 2012, Sunday Mercury (Birmingham, UK), “No fun at this stage of my life” by Mike Lockley, pg. 20:
It hurts because I pride myself on showbiz knowledge and once briefly worked as a theatre set designer.

They fired me. I left without making a scene.
