I hated my job...and then I got fired

Since this is my uncensored life it's time to tell ya'll what is goin on.

Today I got fired from my job. Because I wouldn't be my boss's best friend.

I didn't want to move into her office when my coworker left. I didn't want to sit around and paint nails and watch TV at work. I didn't want to hear about her weekends or facebook status updates and what people were saying on them. I just wanted to do my job and have her leave me alone. That's when things started to get crazy.

First she decided she was going to shun me for not being her bff. Then it turned into mental abuse by belittling me and telling me that I wasn't good enough. Then it turned into me crying every single day either at work, before work, or after work.

I knew that something had to change so I planned on quitting. The funny thing is I got fired the morning I was going to quit. Even funnier thing is I found a job online that had my same exact job description before I went to work and got fired....how dumb are they?

So now I get to sit at home and collect unemployment while I look for a new job that I actually wake up excited about.

"The roads of your dreams are not paved with yellow brick; in fact, they may be paved with rejection letters. The people who succeed are often not just the people with the best-articulated brands; they're the people who respond to rejection by brushing themselves off and moving on, again and again." ~Kelly Cutrone


  1. Wow. Power through and find something you love. I feel for you a little bit. I made a change from nursing school to business school and haven't really looked back since. It was a positive change for me and it sounds like you're on your way to making a positive change too.

  2. oh my gosh, what a nightmare!!! It's crazy that she didn't like you because you ACTUALLY WANTED TO WORK as opposed to socialize. And having your job posted before you went into work? That's just ridiculous.

    I'm glad you get to move on and find a job that you love and is 100 times more fabulous than this one!

  3. You know what? This will probably wind up being the best thing to ever happen to you. Congrats on looking at the bright side. I hope you find something you love!
