    Honesty Should Be The Best Policy But Sometimes It Gets You Sacked.

    Can't believe they did it, but here I am without a job and without a plan. My sacking took place in a staff meeting in front of everyone and I don't think I will ever get over how much it hurt and how humiliating it was. I know I should just stop crying and do something...
