This morning I was jobless and fine with it.
Kevin called me at 7:25am. He is worried about my lack of income. He urged me to come back. If I got fired I can draw unemployment.
I didn't think I'd make it on time. I rushed to work, pulled into the front, left the truck running, ran in, clocked in, then drove around back where I usually park. I was 4 minutes early which just astounded me.
My computer was still gone. My boss was ignoring the hell out of me. I just cleaned. I was wiping down bins when I got fired. Wait for it...
Terminated for leaving the premises while on the clock.
Yes, I drove around the building and had to get on a city street to do it so that was me leaving. It doesn't matter that people do this very thing all the freakin' time. It's stealing time and I am fired.
Kevin is happy now. I can draw unemployment.
I am annoyed. I was trying to give it one more try and it was all for nothing. This is the only time in my life I have been fired and I always thought if I got fired it would be for a really good reason. This is just stupid.
This morning I was fine. I was sitting here at the computer filling out job applications. I felt okay. Now I'm just pissed.
I can't believe life flips around so much so fast.
