Yes, the time on this post is correct...it is 3:30 in the morning. I have gotten maybe 2 hours of sleep. I have been tossing and turning asking myself and God the same question over and over...why me? I've been crying on and off. Okay, here's the story. Friday, March 24th CVS pharmacy fired me. Now I have only been with the company for a couple of weeks. I know you're probably thinking "well they must have had a good reason." Actually, I was fired by the 2 store managers. I work in the pharmacy. These 2 guys approached my boss and told her that they didn't like the way I was handling my job and that the best thing to do would to be to let me go. When she asked why you know what they told her? They said that on Thursday I was being too demanding about wanting to see my paycheck. OK, first of all I was ecxited about recieving my paycheck, I wasn't trying to be demanding. But that's the reason they fired me. They FIRED me for that! I didn't even have the chance to defend myself. They didn't tell me that they felt that way and they didn't even give me a warning. I worked a total of 11 days there and they let me go over a stupid reason like that. But you know what? I didn't say anything to anyone but I probably should have. The day before these 2 guys fired me they ganged up on me in the middle of the store and completely humiliated me in front of everyone. They started making fun of me and doing false impressions of how they thought I did my job and they did it loud. I almost burst out in tears. And my boss in the pharmacy believed them. I thought she knew me better than that or would have at least wanted to hear my side of it. And to make matters worse, they fired me on my voicemail on my cell phone! That's sure taking the easy way out isn't it? The same guys who embarrased and harrassed me on Thursday were the ones who took my job away from me. I have never in my life heard of anyone getting fired over a reason like that! When I told Caleb what happened(by this time I'm balling my eyes out) he was in shock. I was still new and they totally screwed me over. Why? Why is this happening to me?! I just wanted to do my job. I just wanted to be able to bring home a paycheck. And now I'm back at square one. I can't believe this is happening to me. I know that God hasn't abandoned me. Obviously He didn't want me there. But I didn't do anything wrong. And to make it even more worse, there is a tech there who all of my once co-workers told me, especially one in particular, who they were trying to get someone to get her to leave. She's bossy, mean, self-ritcheous, and a know-it-all. They have all apparantly on more than one occasion went to the pharmacy manager about how she was treating them and nothing ever got done about it. So the people who are jerks get to stay, but the sweet, caring girl (me) gets the boot. Please pray for me. All I have ever done was wanted to work and be happy. I have a friend who's a lawyer and I'm going to ask him if I might have a case. I did nothing wrong. I don't want their money or my job back. I would never want to work with people who harrass you for the fun of it. I just want justice.
