About a month ago I came home from work and she said to me in a real serious tone that she had lost her job. As the initial shock was wearing off I thought to myself, “how could this be, did she get laid off, a fight with her boss or some other calamity that would be a reason for termination?”.
So I said, “why, what happened”?
I could not believe my ears when she said “for being late too many times”.
This from a 48 year women with 2 kids, a mortgage, two cars, two dog and all the other responsibilities of almost every adult in America. She couldn’t manage to get her fricken butt out of the sack and get to work. It’s not like it was 3 in the morning, her regular staring time was 7am.
I had said many times to her that she should try to make it to work on time. Her reply was they didn’t mind, well apparently they did. They had even given her a written warning.
What makes matters worse is that her job had good benefits. I was able to sign up for benefits at my place of employment but at $100 more a month and $30 co-pays instead of $10 co-pays. Also by sighing up for insurance at my work I lost my HRA that paid for the co-pays from the benefits she lost with her job.
And the topper is she said I should get some counseling because I have a problem with forgiveness and letting go.
Man is she stupid!
