This is going to be funny so get ready.

I took half of Friday and Monday off from work to play in the beta, got no sleep(cause you know this game is the sh*t, and didn't want to sleep) over the weekend.
i woke up at around 1030ish refreshed and rearing to go, at 1300(1:00)got a call from my boss saying he needed me to come in and help him with some stupid little thing, i said sure ill be there, and that was that.
Got in the tube, got clean all around was feeling good,then at 1325 my boss called back and said never mind it was taking care of, i said OK, ill c ya on Tuesday, said ok and hung up, now heres where it gets funny.
Ive got a good friend that works there to, i brought him to the job and vouched for him to work there, so a really good friend.
He comes over after he gets off and says sit down,( granted this is in MY HOME) im like whats wrong is everything all right???,and he starts in blah blah blah, in a nut shell, my best friend the guy i got a job for comes to my home and fires me, for reasons "i was told to do it cause i wasn't liked by my boss and he thought it would be funny as hell if he did it, how cool is this hu?
i guy Ive known for maybe 10 years does this.
well after i told him to get out, i call my boss to see if this is true and, low and behold im fired, for the same thing my buddy said, my buddy also said that maybe this wouldn't have happened if i didn't take the time off.


now i dont really care i just wanted to but it all on paper for ppl to read(and get a good laugh at some1s misfortune)


have a good one and ill cya next cbt

wait what? you got fired for taking 2 day off? That even legal? I mean if you completely ditched 2 days yes than its good reason to fire you but if you took 2 days off and your boss agree to it than that is no ground for him to fire you at all o.o idk man i would talk to a lawyer about this....

If he doesn't work a Union job then the boss can pretty much do whatever he wants.

Yea, if you enjoyed that job in anyway shape form or fashion, and depending on where you live. I'd sue the [filtered]. Some places say that you can't be fired for a reason like that and if thts the reason he gave you, cats out of the bag and a lawsuit can be put down on the guy. if not for the job unlawful resignment. or w/e its called. get some money out of it :P

im not sure if y'all know what machining is but that's what i do ex. ill take a 600 lb piece of metal in a tubular form and turn it into a anything u can think of, parts for a car oil field ie drilling fracking , or parts for a watch it all depends on whats needed at the time, but back on track, the last shop i was in was personally owned and operated so yes he could do what ever he wanted with no repercussions.

Not completely true, but sorta true. If the employee doesn't have a history of missing out on work and doesn't have a long history of screw up/write up and many of them being of the same case than YES he can be fired for whatever reason, BUT!!!! and this is the kicker and what I would strongly recommend for the OP to do because its like the ulitmate payback to a ignorant boss that thinks he can just fire those that he wishes.

*** note:

double check with your state laws and find out where you stand and what your protection your state offers you as an employee, even check with the company you worked for to see if they offer any kind of protection that may help the damage be reversed.

But as I was trying to say before: GO FILE FOR UNEMPLOYMENT! Employers hate this, and some bosses/managers think people are to ignorant to know to go out and FILE FOR UNEMPLOYMENT.

Now this might not fly if your ex boss is really good at covering his [filtered], but either way if you can make a unemployment official feel sorry for you most the time they'll work with you and get you some kind of compensation.

and he still has to abide by state laws, and if your state says he has to give proper reason for you to be fire than he has to and not doing so you have the right to FILE FOR UNEMPLOYMENT!!!

check with your state laws before you go off thinking what you think is right. Do your homework.

Now i will add this for you, Linis. If you were working under the table and getting paid. Than yes the shop owner can do what ever he wants. But if you received a paycheck and taxes were taken out than the what ever state you live in can protect you rather you believe it or not.


And owe if you decide to take my legal advice you can reimburse me by paying for my copy of Tera. I have a feeling your about to start getting paid for doing nothing.

Unlawful termination is what you're looking for. As the name denotes, it is indeed against the law. It is hard however to sue over, because making a case of it is he said/she said and they can always pull up past history (such as if you were ever late, forgot something, etc). Instead, people often try for unemployment....that you're much more likely to get.

edit: now that I think about it, I think it's called wrongful termination
