Oh hey, what can be worse than losing your job this time of year?
Well, I suppose there is worse, but there's not much more I can possibly lose.
So this badge I had.. keeping it made me troubled. I started ruminating as to why they would fire me on a day I took medical leave. Right before I was to see my doctor. What did I do? Why was I not told anything before today?
So as night fell I wondered to myself, why not just go to work and return teh badge as expected. And hey, why not take Kupo with you? There's nothing in the rules that said no pets, but there was things in there that said that there was a system to correct "job performance" issues, which is what was alleged.
And so I walked down to the NCS and used my badge to get in, Kupo in tow. and no one noticed me or the dog. I walked to the room I needed to give my badge up to and slipped my badge under the door, left the lanyard on teh handle, and left. Still no one noticed.
I liked the work. I hated being alone. In the three months I worked there, I didn't really meet a single person. Every day at work I was alone in a sea of 100+ people. In the social respect, it was far worse than being a donut fryer.
But as far as I am concerned, it's over. I'm sad I was let go, but ont the otehr hand I am glad. I hated feeling so alone.
Now for the record, I tried hard. REALLY hard. I was at work on time. I only left early when I was dismissed. I bent over backwards for the customers I serviced. But apparently it's not good enough. I'm just not good enough.
