    we all can share your pain and commiserate with you.

    Here's mine....................
    A week an a half ago I was hired by a very high end overnight boys camp here in my area.
    They called me out of the blue and asked/begged that I work for them.
    I had assumed that they needed me on their waterfront.
    I was wrong.
    They were inundated with flu and the nursing/infirmary staff needed assistance approx 32 - 40 hrs a week.
    I was called to action and I readily accepted the position and liked it.
    Each day that I was there, I was told I was doing a good job and was thanked profusely for accepting the postion and giving them a much needed hand.

    Today, I was due in at 8:30 and at 7:50 am before i left for camp i checked my email to find this:

    > Thank you for your services to **** *******.
    > Your help is now no longer needed.
    > You helped us in a pinch.
    > Enjoy the rest of the Summer.

    I was "terminated by an email".
    I spoke to them after i cooled down and got 3 different stories at 3 different times.
    Bottom line is they said it was sent in "error".
    HUH?!?!

    I told them to "go to hell."

    Even my 13 yo said that was rude and uncalled for. I have always been of the opinion that people who treat others like that get what they "deserve" in the end.

    Hmm... who are they going to call if they have another flu outbreak? I heard you will be at the beach!

    I don't know what is wrong with people anymore. Where's people's manners. That was so rude of them to email you that your services were no longer needed.

    Watching Wednesday's child, a 16 yo boy who has been in foster care for 7 years. Life shoud not be so cruel. This boy's story is being repeated so knowing a bit about WC, they did not receive many or any inquiries.

    When I was running an IT department at a small company back home the owner made me fire one of my guys on the day before Thanksgiving. The guy was a slacker and should have been gone long before that, but the owner was a spiteful *male appendage*.
