in real life, I've been having a pretty shitty year. My moods shift so fast I think I have whiplash. The only constant in my life has been the hard work I put into my job. I don't want to sound conceited but I'm the best damn worker they have. I've only ever called in once in a year and half, I'm constantly picking up shifts for co-workers, my manager and I have a very close relationship outside of work because like me, she's been going through a lot. Work has been kind of my escape, I get there, and a switch inside me turns on, and I'm this friendly, outgoing person, who remembers my customers names and most of the time they don't even need to ask for what they want cause I'll have it ready for them, my work ethic is admired by my fellow co-workers and they are constantly saying they are glad to be working on the same days as me, because otherwise nothing would get done. I've never been told to change how I work, and I'm constantly getting praise.
 
That's all changed now. 
the work of other people had shifted on the days I would come in, because if I came in after them, they didn't have to work as hard knowing I would pick up the slack no complaints. The owner (who is a bitch and knows no employee by name and wouldn't know the definition of positive reenforcement if it bit her in the ass) caught wind of this fact, so in order to boost performance in other workers she told my manager on thursday to fire me. 
 
and now I'm fired.

My manager and I had a long conversation about it, and because the owner legally doesn't have to tell you why you're getting fired I was canned.
 
just like that.
 
My manager told me that she had to leave work in order to get herself together to call me. Apparently she spent an hour off the clock talking to my regulars and other employees, having them complain upstairs to the owner, to no avail. 
 
I got fired so that other employees would say 'if they could fire Anne, that means any one of us could be next' hence they work harder.
 
my boss's boss, said he has a meeting with the owner, trying to get her to change her mind to no avail as well, and then called me up and told me to file for unemployment right away, that they wouldn't be able to deny me, then went on to say
 
"you may even want to talk to a lawyer, you are one of 3 women who work here, and there may be a way to file for discrimination against the owner, if they can turn it into a case I suggest you go for it, she (the owner) has no right to do this"
 
He got so upset he almost cried and said he would miss working with me and wished me the best in the next job I was bound to find.
 
But right now, even with the support of my coworkers and friends, without my job, I feel empty. I know that sounds pathetic, but I have a hard time being by myself. I'm not the most optimistic person, and while I know I'll get unemployment, and I'm bound to find another job quickly, it's still feels like a year and half of my life has been wasted. And while I know I'm a hard worker, and she had no right to fire me whatsoever, being fired is still a hard pill to swallow.
 
I've had many jobs, and now 2 out of 7 of them I was fired. and the ones I wasn't fired at I quit because eventually management decides to treat me like an ant waiting to be stepped on.
 
I'm sorry this got so long, I guess I have nothing better to do now. 
I just wanted to let you all know, that if I don't post as much or comment on things, I'm probably still lurking. I haven't dissapeared even though at times I kinda wish I would.
 
I love my f-list, you guys have been a huge blessing to me,  helping me in  ways you probably don't even know. 
So all in all, thank you, and sorry if I'm not as active in fandom right now.

Reading about your situation makes me angry, even if obviously it isn't my business at all. Where do these kinds of people come from, I don't even. I have no idea about the law system in USA, but your boss seems to have a point about suing that bitch. Way to reward good employees for their hard work.

Still, if it is of any consolation for you, remember that we all here love your amazing fandom work. It may not change anything about your situation, but at least doesn't hurt your self-esteem. But surely you wouldn't have a problem with that, because you know that how you were treated was completely unfair and uncalled for. I hope you will be okay!

Your SS posts were great! I really enjoyed the vids and your icons are beautiful and full of Spuffy love!

I'm so sorry about all the shitty RL stuff. It all sounds incredibly unjust and horrible. Good luck job-hunting and getting your bearings in a world that has shifted in some very not-nice ways. *hugs*

I was going through your journal looking for vids to download and I saw this post I'd missed and...

*HUGS*

This is SO WRONG and I'm tearing up reading about it. I hope you're doing better now, but still the injustice of this situation makes me so ANGRY on your behalf.
