So, remember that job that I was doing so well in? The first one I'd had lined up in almost a year?
Well, they told me that they wanted to have me on permanently! For more money! Fantastic, right? I was certainly ecstatic, and didn't wait to tell Chaytel the good news!
And then the next day, I come into work. It's a normal day, no problems. At least, I thought it was. I call over somebody whose entire job it is to answer questions, and ask her one. Now, I've never seen this person before, so I assume they came over from Corporate to help out. Well, apparently they're not used to it, because they're the most stubborn, impatient, rude person I've ever talked to in the place. But I'm careful, I make sure not to say anything offensive and to back off even though she instigated.
An hour later, I'm being walked out the building for disrespecting someone.
I'm. Being fired. For this person coming up to pick a fight with me.
All of my hard fucking work to get ahead in this company comes crashing down because one asshole decides she's going to ruin my life for her own satisfaction.
And now, all the money that I thought I was going to have to, say, pay the bills or buy food with? All that's gone. I'm up a creek without a paddle, because I live in a god damn Right to Work state where people like me have no choice and no voice.
Words cannot describe my anger. And yet, I don't have time to be mad. Why? Because I have to figure out some way to make it through this month. This month, where nobody's apt to have any money.
Is it really so much to ask, to just... live? To just make it day to day? Am I asking for the moon, here?
