I moved from Florida (apparently, I can't do large cities) back in with my mom in Michigan in March. We got a car, which I am driving much better than I thought I would (haven't driven since I was 15). Thanks, years of video games!
I was fired August 18th. I was told bereavement wouldn't count against me; I just wouldn't be paid for those days. I was told this by personnel. Well, apparently they do count (eventually, because I checked and they were not on my record). The next day I got sick, I was fired outright. No coaching, no warning, nothing.
I did not fight it. I don't want to be there. If I'd known they could hold up my unemployment pay for at least a month, I might have fought it. Fight for a job in retail that was killing me slowly? How twisted and sick is that?
I haven't been so happy since I was in college.
September 9th, I published part 3 of my series.
September 18th, I published part 4.
September 27th, I will (just kidding!... maybe).
Happy Equinox everyone!
