I lost a part time job I was doing over the holidays because of something that went down at home with difficult child. I called in and the guy seemed okay. The next day I show up and whamo- adios amigo. Granted, the guy is an A-Hole. I've known and worked for him in the past, but still, to fire someone for a personal issue? The guy told me he won't have an employees personal problems affecting his business. I was back with the guy 8 months, and this was the one and only time something happened that caused me to miss work. Like I said- the guy's an A-Hole. Anyone else ever have a similar experience?
