So I was fired today.

Apparently, I'm not allowed to point out that I had more shifts dropped in my lap with little to no warning, and no proper explanation for WHY (the other worker was sick) until I got there and asked. This, AFTER spending a week and a half pulling double-shifts because said worker got to have a whole week off to attend a friend's wedding.

And then I'm not allowed to ask if I can have one whole day off per week after the sort of stress I had to deal with. And when I'm told that "the board won't approve it," I'm not allowed to ask if I can talk to the other members of the board to tell my side of the story.

Ever since taking this job on, I was there seven days a week, always taking care of the dogs, and never taking any real vacation since the day I got hired. I put up with my boss constantly talking to me in a sour tone of voice or making mountains out of molehills. I tried to balance my heavy class workload with coming in for shift after shift, with no real time to work on the bigger assignments in-between. I was polite. I was respectful. I even took on extra shifts when it was clear that the other worker couldn't make it.

And this is how I'm repaid. By not being allowed to ask for a day off, and being fired without so much as a chance to defend my position.

That's the manager of "Greyhound Ranch Adoptions" for you--giving shelter to dogs, but treating the people who help take care of them like meaningless slaves.

A bit bare bones at the moment, but...who am I? A creative mind. A procrastinator. An avid fandom enthusiast. And a roleplayer.

Alas, I only know a handful of people, but would love to know more...particularly in the Sly Cooper fandom. If anyone out there happens to indulge in Sly Cooper RP, drop me a note sometime and we can talk about meeting up on some medium or another!

(Sorry for double posting but this one's for my friends so it's for you as well. :D )

Tag a quality deviant, You’re it! Quality doesn’t mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how much followers you have. Send this to 10 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them!
