You guys are the besht! (hic!)
Seriously, I am glad. The union guy did advise me of one smart thing, he said to send them a registered letter stating my interpretation of being terminated. It was weird that they would pay me til the end of the week and in the first breath they said I wasn't doing my job. So, I typed a short and factual to the point letter, requesting "kindly advise me if I have misinterpreted anything."
Also advised them I only wish to be paid for the actual time I worked unless it is the policy to pay out terminated employees. I frankly don't want their tainted money! I don't need money to be happy, or know I did the right thing. They can shove it!
Yes -jt, I am the one with that loooong list.
I already have another FT job, start Monday, more details on that at another time. I will show my new employer the memo I recieved and tell them exactly what went down, so I have nothing to hide, and in case those vindictive back-stabbers decide to be spiteful.
My former employers KNOW me, and I have never been anything but honest, usually painfully so. It's why I make a bad manager. I have diarrhea of the mouth, and am very outspoken. When I told the aides that, they said I was a good supervisor, the best they ever had. That was nice.
My dtr is practicing her hip hop routine and has her Jennfier Lopez CD playing full blast, the song is Let's Get Loud! It has a good beat, and is working on my happy receptors. Course with the drinks, I'm about ready to put a lmapshade on my head and dance on the table.
If I hear anything juicy, I'll fill you in.
The moral of the story: If it sounds too good to be true, it probably IS!
Another Lesson: DON"T quit your day job, stay prn when trying something new, BOY am I glad I did!!!!
