Yesterdays Facebook update:
upsetting news, I just got canned.
I've been struggling at work,
keeping up with Starbucks customer service standards. Getting
defensive, and according to complaints, rude. My Store Manager is
understanding, and we have been working on it, but most people don't go
to her (she's new), they go directly to the District Manager. And I
guess part of the DM's job is to get rid of
people who are making customers unhappy. I don't want to use it as a
crutch, but these hormones are getting the better of me. My behaviour
is inexcusable, but understandable?? (esp. in the entitled ass
So many mixed emotions. I was very unhappy, and I'm glad I don't have to go back. But...MONEY!?
I have enough hours for maternity/parental leave.
My first thought was to go get even a part time job to cover some expenses. The problem with that, is it would be *those* hours that I get for mat leave. Not a lot!
So, my next thought was E.I. The DM gave me what she considered a so very generous offer. I could take the rest of the week suspended with pay, and then quit, or 'come back' and have a meeting, where, in all reality, I would get fired (not laid off, misconduct fired).
I've decided to 'quit'. ('Cause God knows, if I wasn't pregnant, I'd be at a new job by now!)
There are 2 routes that I could take re. E.I..
I can claim I had just cause for quitting. (pregnancy stress? forced to quit?)
Or I can try and get my doctor to sign off on sick leave (stress being the reason)
If those don't pan out? I hope I can find a full time job for 4-5 months.
I have faith it will all work out.
