F*@% Off, You’re Fired!
Let me tell you my story. I worked for a family owned construction company for 8 years, ever since I was 18. It was started by my dad, who then employed my siblings. About 10 years ago, they fired my dad and took over the company. I never understood why. I then began working for them when I left school. I never bothered to get my apprenticeship in a trade, yet learnt the ropes with them, and was advised I didn’t really need one. Then about 2 weeks ago, after many years of friction with one of the brothers, I was given warnings about improving my work habits or go look for a job elsewhere. (This was around the time I was suffering from clinical depression mind you) Then one day at work after a minor mishap I was told quite bluntly “F%$@ off, your fired! Get out of my sight!” Needless to say this couldnt have come at a worse time, especially since Im a homeowner. So lesson to the wise, get an apprenticeship, no matter who you work for!
