Eh I am back and forth on the Woo....

I don't know if I am excited yet. I mean I am glad about being a SAHM again and I was contaplating on quitting anyway... But I am going to miss so many people!


I got fired because of 5 abscences... All five I was in the hospital though....

Glad my job cared enough to see that as a reason on why I wasn't around. Stupid people.

Congratulations? LOL was it Wal-Mart? Sounds like something they would do, they fired my husband after only 3.

I agree, sounds like Wal-Mart.

If you're happy though, good for you then. It took getting fired from Walmart to realize how angry and horrible that job made me.

Yes!! It was! Good call. I have been with them for a couple of years.... I got pregnant with this baby and have been really sick as hell with morning sickness... Well I ended up in the hospital for dehydration and really low electrolytes... Come back to work and BAM.

I don't know about your situation, but sometimes jobs can't afford to care, when dealing with a high volume of absences.

The one by us just got a new manager, the old one retired, and he has fired close to 50 people since he started a couple of months ago, people who were there for years with FT positions lost their jobs and all their benefits all to save a little money.

So, even after you called them and told them what's going on and could provide documentation, they still fired you?

I would consider that any meaningful person who knew I was in the hospital for 5 days... Wouldn't fire me when I got back to work. It wasn't like I was off lolly ganting and I would have prefered to be at work then in a hospital.

I think some managers don't care.

When I worked for them, if I even had my phone on the sales floor, I got in trouble.

I went to a different store to go get my hair cut about a week ago, and watched a door greeter sit on a bench and play on her cell phone for over an hour.  She didn't actually greet anyone, and she totally ignored the door alarm. 

That shit would have gotten me fired on the spot.
