So by incident be late for your pick up once or twice and guess yes another warning in your file.
As you are now cornered, you do your best but unfortunately you forgot your hat in the company car and so you have it ....you can now be fired
please note those are only examples of what happened to guys here.
Creativity of the company is huge so any other incident e.g drinking espresso out of a china cup on board can start the same chain of warnings, bullying.
I suggest you come here and find out by yourself.
That's probably the best advice one can give.

Know the rules inside out and become anally retentive with your self-discipline. Probably will upset the more adventurous guys you fly with but you just have to protect yourself... being caught carrying a coffee in uniform won't get you fired, but it may exacerbate your situation if you have an innocent slip-up doing your job on the line.

No one likes to take the small rules seriously, until they get burned and suddenly they're on their way out.

Probably also worth pointing out that if you do have a violation of any nature, be it forgetting your hat or something much worse - be honest with them, accept blame (if it's due) and promise them you'll learn from it and won't let it happen again. The last thing you want to do is look like you're not accepting responsibility. This is true in any airline, especially as a Captain.
