View Full Version : Worst nightmare!

10-16-2007, 05:25 AM
Ok, maybe not the worst, but it is DEFINITELY in the top 3 for my worst nightmares. Mike called me at the exact moment he was getting off work yesterday to tell me to sit down. Now that never is good news, is it...

He was terminated. Escorted out the door. Not given any concrete reasons or facts. Never even written up. Just 30 days short of his 12 year anniversary for the company.

And it just happens to be exactly one week after he got back from his emergency trip to SC for his dad's emergency bypass surgery. The DAY after he returned they started in on him and several remarks were made about his absence. He used available vacation time for the trip!

Can you say 'ATTORNEY'??

Off to cry some more & finish the laundry...

How horrible! Just horrible!! Sounds like they are going to be in big trouble for terminating him in such a way after he's been with them so long and had a family emergency!

I hope this all works itself out fast... I'm so sorry you have to deal with such an awful thing!

Big Hugs!

Oh Melanie Im so sorry to hear that. Especially since he has about 12 years vested in the company. That was pretty rotton of them to do that. But Im a firm believer that as one door closes one opens up. Things will work out. Especially with all our prayers.
