Big news for The Very Best Cats household- I am now of the unemployed. Yes, as of monday at 4:00 when I was called into my manager's office and told? She didn't say I was being laid off. She didn't say I was being fired. I don't even think she said that she had to let me go. It was a very weird discussion. But I knew what the gist of it was because her manager was in the room as she discussed a problem with some documents I needed to have signed by a customer. The documents are probably sitting in an unopened pile of mail, waiting to be signed and returned to me. It's more complicated that I can write about due to respecting the privacy of this individual.
I think I probably surprised both managers because I did not try to defend my position regarding this last "accusation." I used to defend my side rigorously when I felt I was being falsely accused of some problem at work. One of my basic rules of life is if I am wrong, I will admit it. But if I am not, look out. I will argue my side because I won't take on a false accusation about myself or my work.
But with this last meeting, I was ready to give up the fight. I knew this was coming for a very long time. Management was not happy with me for many reasons. And they have been trying to push me out for a while now.
So it is done. Today I am looking for affordable health insurance for my husband and myself. If anyone has any tips, I would really appreciate the help.
That's my big news for today. I have not been unemployed since I was 19 years old. That's a lot of years ago for me. So this is a big change. Please, wish us all luck. We may need it.
