I am not upset with her at all, though. She has been there over 6 months and busted her rear for them. She learned great work ethic. The friend of hers that brought her in was fired and she had a feeling they would end up firing her, too. The shift managers were not happy about letting her go. They know how much Marina worked for them. It was the decision of a District Manager that was brought in after they fired the GM. Yes, they have been quite fire happy lately after going through a period where everyone was quitting - hence why Marina was working ALL the tme. Apparently Marina was told to go help fill orders because she can knock them out quickly and the other person was behind. Marina caught this cashier giving food away - the checks were voided and she wanted Marina to fill the orders anyway. Marina was questioning her on it and they got in to an argument. Marina was the one let go. I told her that I know very well that she can get an attitude but to learn from it. I, too, was fired from my first job for having a bad attitude. I learned from it and made sure it did not happen again. She is depressed but I told her everything happens for a reason. It was her first job - I told her to take in the experience and move forward. Almost everyone I know has been fired at least once in their lives. Now is the time to look for a day job and put Connor in daycare. She already has a couple of leads that she is following up on tomorrow. Thankfully, she is not a spender and has banked a good amount of her money away. She was going to pay off probation in full but not now. She will remain on probation until she finds another job. No biggie. She goes just once a month now. To be honest, I am going to enjoy the break from babysitting every night and enjoy some time with my husband - especially being able to go to bed together at the same time! But if you could all rattle some beads and say some prayers for my baby girl to find another job quickly, I would really appreciate it!
