As some of you may know I worked in a big box store. It was one of those outdoor stores with the slogan…We live outdoors. I hated my job but loved some of my co-workers. Other co-workers I just wanted to smack them every time I saw them. Yesterday I met the new store manager for the first time. He was really nice. I felt better about the whole situation. I was even selling these stupid "replacement plans" they demand that we sell to customers.
When it was almost quitting time yesterday, (this is how they roll) I was called to the lodge by one of the managers. I was told that I had signed for a package which contained a pistol and then left it unattended. I was then "let go"! First of all how am I to know what is inside a package? Second of all the managers would do anything they had to do to keep from walking to customer service to do anything!
I've known for months that they were looking for a way to get rid of me. In the imortal words of Daphne Moon…"I'm a bit physic". I some times just know things. I've been watching the managers and have known they were watching me. Why? Because I have a bit of an attitude and do not suffer fools gladly! I treat my co-workers with respect but I do not accept a bullcrap story even for one minute. As my dad would have put it…you can't bulls**t a bulls****er!
I should have been gone from that job a long time ago. The very week I went to work for them over a year ago I had to spend a night in the hospital because of my bloodpressure shooting up. My ankles stay swollen because I am on my feet the entire time I'm there. I have not been able to control my bloodpressure even with meds. Stress will do that to ya. So, I guess The Almighty has once again been looking after me even when I didn't realize it.
I hope all of you good folks out there are having a wonderful Vetern's Day. I want to wish all of the vets here on DC a happy Vetern's Day and to say thanks for a job well done!!
