    Good Thing In The Long Run

    I was fired from my first job back in 1996. I was working as a cashier at WalMart (grrrr). I had gotten out of high school midterm so I was attempting to go full time at work.  What no body knew was that my boyfriend at the time's ex girlfriend was attempting to get me in...

    Before, and Feeling Like It's Going to Happen Again

    WELL, i have a tendency to take other people's moods personally. It's a retarded problem that my life coach and alcohol have never been able to fix. I'm just getting this feeling that I may be fired soon because of currently dealings with one of my associates. Although it is...

    Today I raised my voice to someone at work.

    I was so mad. A very important gate on campus was supposed to be unlocked and someone locked it again. So I went to the office and really got in some faces about why it was locked again. I feel bad because the woman is very nice, but at the same time, I feel like why do I...

    I'Ve Been Fired 4 Times In My Entire Life

    You probably think I'm insane. If you've read my profile, you'll see that I am kind of crazy. But who isn't? The first time I was fired, I was accused of having a bad attitude. Damn right I had a bad attitude... They forced me to work overtime without paying me for 6 months...

    I Will Be Fired In June

    Hi everyone, If you're not familiar with my story, search "Confessions" for "Fired and Suicidal." I finished grad school in 2008, became a teacher, and this is the second time since then that I've ended up working for some jerky principals who didn't see my value to their...

    My Ex-Boss Is Badmouthing Me

    I was let go from my teaching job in June 2012. Since then, many teachers have been fired from that school district for made-up reasons, as I was. Yesterday, I *finally* got a job offer, but it was *thousands* less than I was looking for, because the administrator offering it...
