Emergency Commissions...

Journal Entry: Sat Sep 10, 2016, 11:06 AM


Well, I'm afraid I have to open my commissions to pay my bills, as I've just lost my job... :(

Upon arriving at work today my boss said she was surprised to see me. I asked why, and she said I wasn't scheduled for today, but on my calendar I was. I double checked, and sure enough my name was crossed out. Having already had 4 days off this week, a 5th day would be horrible. I asked if I could please work today, and she called me aside and said that she didn't want me working. When I asked her why, she basically said I'm the worst possible employee.
According to her, I'm greedy, selfish, and rude. I only care about myself, and I don't care at all for the business. I slack off, do the bare minimum, and half-ass everything I do. I constantly have to be told what to do, I'm rude to customers, and I ignore what I'm told to do. She's saying that I'm just a horrible selfish person, and that she only hired me in the beginning because she wanted me to post on Facebook about her business.
She jumped on me for bringing lunch to work, for buying my own scrubs (our uniform), and for clocking in 5 minutes early everyday. She says that "all" my coworkers dislike me, because I am not a team player, and that I'm lucky to have been around this long. She said after the first 3 weeks I worked for her, she expected me to give notice. 

I have never felt so insulted, degraded, and underappreciated as I do right now. 
But what she said got me thinking, am I a rude person...? Am I selfish and greedy? Do I only care about myself...? I can't think straight right now, so I'd like to ask you all. What do you think of me? Am I really like this? Or have I diluted myself into thinking I'm something else?

And since I'm jobless, and have no income, I'll need to open commissions to pay for my bills until I can get either another job, or file for unemployment.
If you choose to commission me, I cannot thank you enough.

Your boss or your team mates are maybe jealous to something  that you have, because none of the listed inner properties are true. I didn't know you as a selfish, rude, or the one who only cares with herself... no, something is behind the false reason. And it's a shame that a boss is such sneaky and not honest... somehow it really grades herself...

You are a loveable, kind and always caring person, no matter what they say! We love you as you are because you are perfect, and don't listen to them!

That's really rude of the boss to say something like that to you and wait isn't a boss suppose to give you a weeks warning or something before firing you?, so you can at least look for another job while still at least getting your last salary?

You are the total opposite of those things, as everyone else stated in the comments below... what your (ex)-employer said is absolute bs.

You are kind, sweet and a generous person, your actions speak louder than the words of a liar. Never forget that ^^

Well Neffy, either your (ex-)employer is stupid as hell, ignorant or blind. Or a combination of those. Cause you are one of the nicest, friendliest and most open persons I know. 

I could commission you, but I only have points, which I think won't help you too much :/

Lots of love from here. Don't let you get dragged down by one lying creature. :hug:
I'm sure everyone agrees with me. 

As on the greedy part: if you were: why would you allow cheaper point commissions? -> 

Conclusion: you are one of the kindest, sweetest, most generous and open persons :huggle: (and of course, one of my idols)

*Clears throat*
 three words
BULL.  AND. FUCKNIG. SHIT.
you are one of the most selfless, kind, and giving people I have ever met!  you've done things to help others that put YOUR OWN LIVLIHOOD AND STRESS LEVELS at risk, just to see someone smile!  that boss was talking out their fucking ass, and I'm 99.99% sure they just wanted to save on Payroll, but decided they also missed their days of being a school bully.  I'm sorry you lost your job hun but if THAT was your boss then good. fucking. riddance.  anyone who would say those things about you is obviously blind, deaf, or both. I can't think of ANYONE who would think ANY of those things about you.

How could anyone say such terrible things!? I am sure you are not to blame in this. I didn't even think it was legal to kick someone from their job like that, or maybe it differs depending on the country!!
Your boss deserves... Lots of horrible stuff! >:C

I don't want to wish anything bad on my boss, because that would drop me to her level. But I do hope that something better comes along soon.

There is no need wishing anything bad to happen to her, though.
If she keep acting like that, karma will eventually get her. 
I hope you will be okay. You are a kind, caring person, so don't let this get to you. <3

It sounds like your former boss is the selfish one.  She basically used you and then got rid of you when you were no longer needed.  A lot of bosses will only look out for themselves.  She may have even saw you as a threat, so she used her power to fire you. 

Also, quite often, when a boss cuts your hours a lot it means they want to fire you but don't want to tell you face to face and they hope you will just quit.

I don't know you that well yet, but I can tell you are an extremely kind, caring, and a generally sweet person.  I don't believe you are selfish, rude, lazy, or greedy.  I think you are the opposite and your boss simply wanted you gone and made up an excuse to fire you.  It happens like this more often than you would think. 

The only thing I think could be an issue is the "clocking in 5 minutes early every day" because that would potentially make the hours round up depending on what system you use for punches to equal more than what you actually worked.  At my job, we cannot do that because we work 40 hour weeks and would get overtime without actually working overtime if we clocked in 5 minutes early every day.   That would not, however, be a good reason to fire someone unless they were told not to do it and just did it anyways.  From what I have heard, they did not give you even close to 40 hours.  In my opinion, arriving early is always a sign a very good employee though. 

I am sure one day you will find an awesome job.  I wish you good luck searching for a job.   I will buy some commishes in the meantime as soon as I can think of what I want.

oh my goodness......:( i am so sorry you were treated like that and not even given a chance to redeem yourself....:( she should have brought these things to your attention as they were happening so that you had a chance to work on them and not outright fire you like that.....:(

to emphasize what i said last night, you are NOT Rude or horrible person! there is a difference between rude and confident that apparently this woman(store owner) knows nothing about. you are passionate and have drive and she doesn't. :hug:  what she did was rude to throw so many insults at you...:( :inconsadhugplz: we are all not perfect and need guidance and help once in a while. yet, it seems like this world nowadays couldn't care less about that. :( one mistake to them is one too many. :(

You are an amazing person and don't you ever forget it Sis. :hug: they don't know what they are talking about. :hug: <3
