Got Fired After Speaking Up
Worked on a project for about a year, I had a total of 5 managers within that time. Place was unorganized. Anyway, the last supervisor was over the top. When he came, he tried to create an instant bond with me, he was super friendly and super caring. However, I did not let him in. I saw who he really was. He then tried to intimidate me, by telling me that he wants to me come to his office every morning to say good morning to him. I basically told him to kick rocks.
He then told me that he's not afraid of me. To make a long story short... he could not scratch without someone doing it for me. He was totally helpless. I called out sick one day, the next day I went to work, he was pissed that I did not come in. He sent an e-mail demanding to know the cause of my illness and the reason I did not participate in the meeting even though I called in sick. WTF! I replied to the email and told him I took a sick day that's why I did not participate. He did not like my response.
At the end of the day, my contracting company fired me for no reason. I did not bother to investigate, my reasons being, if they are going to believe what he said about me without giving me a chance to defend myself, then they are on the same level as he his. Therefore, it was best to cut my losses and move on. I am glad that I did not get entangled with this asshole because I saw his true nature right away. So nothing was a surprise to me. I believe he fired me to have one of his friends get my job. Oh well, that friendship will not last too long once they see how needy and off the wall he is. That's karma in action, for the person who took my job.
