I worked at this really neat Irish restaurant for nearly 2 years. My schedule took up most of my time, but I didn't mind because I loved working there. I was well-liked by everyone, had many strong friendships with my co workers, loved all mgmt and bossed, avoided drama, was constantly a smiling busy bee. Everyday I looked forward to being there. I took my job very seriously. I also happened to be late for work ONE Sunday about 6 months ago. I received a verbal warning and felt very sorry, and like a Shithead. Well, guess what happened yesterday? I slept through my alarm at 9 am, woke up and hour and a half late and freaked the KCUF out!! I panicked and immediately called my supervisor. She said it was ok and they had it covered. I sent her 3 text messages throughout the day, apologizing. In the meantime, I'm a nervous wreck and worried. Didn't sleep a wink last night. I show up to talk to her this morning, and she hands me a pink slip and gives her "I'm sorry but we have to part ways" speech. I just nodded my head and took the pink slip (funny, I didn't know they were literally pink). Now I am in shock. Oh, and they have a rule that if you get fired, you're not allowed back in. I just got 86'd from all my friends. My roomate works there, too.

    I meant to say bosses, not bossed.

    Maybe try going over your supervisor's head. Talk about your good work record. If your performance is really that solid, and you've had only 2 lates, I think that's really unreasonable.

    Go to the head honcho...seriously, if you really want your job back. You have nothing to lose.

    I just feel betrayed and deeply hurt. I think I actually cringed when I realized what she was saying to me.

    WOW, That's crazy. To fired people over being a little late here and there, its life things happen to all of us, were on this world to help each other. I just think thats completely ridiculous.... I'm sorry that happened to you, but everything happens for a reason, now you can get a better job ;)
