You know what really sucks? I'll tell you what; working your ass off at a company for over a year, only missing 3 days in that whole time span, giving your everything, your soul, to that company, and what do you get in return? That's right, you get bullied, mistreated, and then, to top it all off, they terminate ya! Sounds awesome right?!
No. It's really not... Long story short, I worked along side my mother making linear motors for apple's production line, among other major companies. Since I can't get my license in Maine for 6 months (bullshit permit laws) She was my ride to work. And we worked our asses off. Sometimes working 14 hour shifts! And we were the only ones doing those 14 hour shifts... We gave our all for that company (Airex Corporation in case anyone was curious) and yet the manager and CEO always were either mean to us, and/or, in most cases, never even spoke to us at all. So last Monday, my mother had to make a doctors appointment, but she couldn't do it at work, so she asked to leave for an hour and come back after she had found a doctor. Well our manager/"Boss" gave her shit, ans she couldn't take his shit anymore and she left in tears. I stayed backed and continued working, but around lunch time I saw her car back in the parking lot, but I couldn't find her anywhere. Until she walked into the cafeteria, crying, telling me, and everyone else eating their lunch, that she was just fired. (She did it because she knew the ones who fired her would tell the rest of the company that she quit, which we later found out they did.) So she was fired, My heart sunk, because that meant I had to resign as well, since I had no way to get there. No one was close enough to me to car pool with, et cetera. So they let me go too... Just goes to show how your world can crumble within the span of 5 minutes.
With that being said, losing my job means I just lost $1,700 a month... My mother made roughly around $2,000 to $2,400 a month... Yup, its not fun losing all that money.
However, it's not all bad though. First off, everyone loved us at work, and my mother made sure to let everyone know and see the true side of that company, and they certainly do too; everyone hates the manager and CEO now, and from what I heard last from a few of my friends from there, a couple more people are leaving the company now. No one's going to believe their lies anymore. Which is great for the mean side of me. I hope that company, A.K.A sweat shop, fucking tanks and goes bankrupt.
But the best thing of all, is that I'm no longer suicidal/depressed anymore, and I've actually haven't been this happy since I've moved to New England, even despite the financial loss. And on top of that, My friendship with my mother was deteriorating while we both worked there. (We would take our anger from work out on each other frequently, even when we didn't want to) But now, We've both changed and I feel that we're close again. No more anger between us makes for a wonderful change of heart.
So she's going to get another job soon. As for me? I think I'm going to take some time to enjoy some long overdue personal time, and then work on my license, GED, and some other things before looking again. The money was good, of course, but when you have an $1,800 pc, $1,500 worth of consoles, 550+ total games from any device in the house, a tablet, a personal fridge, all inside a room with an on-suite bathroom... I think I have everything I could possibly NEED for a little while.
Plus, Renamon was missing me, so now we have some more time together.
So... *sighs* That's all for now... Just felt like venting a little bit. And I'm so excited to not have to give myself to that fucking company anymore. It's worth it to me to not make all that money anymore, in exchange for my life and happiness back, to no longer feel depressed and lifeless. My mom and I are best friends again... All seems well with the world now.
And on that note, I'm out. Gonna go cuddle with my yellow Vixen!
Peace out Peeps!
