Shaping up for the worst week EVER!!

I have never been fired from a job.


Until today.

Well they never really said "fired" as much as it was "without cause"

My manager could not even look at me. And its Gov so they are not required to give a reason because if the probationary period....

There are a few reason I could think of.

1. I told them in August that I would be leaving and still have not given them a date

2. I do not fit into their "cookie cutter" world and if something or someone bothers me I let them know as much....

3. Its the Gov.. a friend suggested down sizing? I mean everyone knows someone thats been laid off.

But as much as I should be upset I am not. I am a bit relieved and angry all at the same time. I mean I am thankful for the time they afforded me and the experience but without reason really bothers me.

I would like to know "why" but then again it really does not matter.

Everything happens for a reason

while you might want to the know the "why", it's their loss. who wants to be a cookie cutter clone? besides it's more time to play with Daisy (she's cute!). -=)

My whole sate is a "hire at will" state, which means (as my former employer used to remind us all the freaking time) that you can be fired "for any reason or no reason at all." Bah. Here's hoping this shutting door allows a much better one to open.

Aw, I'm sorry to hear that girl. But like you said. Everything happens for a reason. Just be excited for the next adventure in your life dear. No matter what, I know you will end up at a better place. Somewhere where they appreciate you for YOU! Because let’s face it. You’re awesome!

Ally- Yeah I never really fit there mold.

Citizen of the world- Everything does happen for a reason.. the fact that we could be moving in a few weeks makes me feel a little better.

The Real Kidd- Thats the way I am looking at it!

Deutlich- I am sort of relieved.. once I get over the "stress" of it

I'm so sorry Random. I'd want to know why too.

I hope you find something much better.

I was fired once upon a time when the company decided it would be cheaper to get rid of the full time staff and go perdiem. Trust me, knowing the reason why didn't help all that much. It stings to get canned when you know your work effort is not the reason.

You will land on your feet girl. Don't you always!
