What did I get for my birthday? 5 weeks severance.

work, ————————————- 

I think the thing that really stings is, I’ve been there 5 years, I worked my ass off, but I’m stressed and that means I’m done?

And of course that they chose today for it.

Reaching out to lawyers about this, as apparently I may have something. This is... not how I expected to spend my birthday and the days following.

@coffeentacos

oh wow I'm sorry :( that's really really shitty.

I mean
it's a lot of severance and I'm hoping it helps you cover rent for as long as it takes to find another job.
But still super shitty.

If there's anything I can do to help you out, let me know!

@Mainebot thanks man.

@coffeentacos

oh but uh
Happy birthday?
Is that appropriate still?

work, ————————————- 

@Mainebot it’s still today, I’m still alive, so I think so? Haha. Just a shit start to it. And thank you 💚

@coffeentacos

I MEAN
all things considered
you have the entire day off, the weekend is long, you and yours deserve a day to yourselves to just enjoy it.

Celebrate and don't worry for one day. Have a lovely dinner, share a drink, go watch the sunset without a care in the world and let everything wait until at least tomorrow. Today is yours!

work, ————————————- 

@coffeentacos Ouch! That really sucks. Try not to think about it today and just enjoy your birthday! 🎂

work, ————————————- 

@coffeentacos Ah jeez man, that sucks, I'm so sorry...

Happy birthday tho

work, ————————————- 

@coffeentacos I’m so sorry JC! I will tell you what someone told me when I was let go from an extremely toxic work environment: you will be so much better off in the long run. Incredibly shitty of them to do it today, and I know from experience that it will sting for a while, but better things are on the horizon for you. Sending you all my good vibes, and a happy birthday!! This too shall pass ❤️

@coffeentacos I'm so sorry this happened and I hope lawyers have some great info for you and you get what you need to better this situation.😥 Here for you if you need anything!!

work, ————————————- 

@btrflyknife thanks 💚 what I really need is work as with my wife in school, my income was our only income. Just trying not to stress too much as I’m already down enough

work, ————————————- 

@coffeentacos I totally get that, I hope you find something soon that's better than what you had. 😣

work, ————————————- 

@btrflyknife thanks, I do too! I’d already been looking and applying, so I’m hopeful.

@coffeentacos It did seem like they were conspiring to let you go, moving goalposts around, and then this? Seems very premeditated.

work, ————————————- 

@Mainebot oh it definitely was. I checked the date I was written up. Exactly a month before yesterday.

work, ————————————- 

@coffeentacos

:thonking:
yeah that seems like they were manufacturing a situation to let you go.

work, ————————————- 

@coffeentacos I'm so sorry :(

work, ————————————- 

@erinbee honestly, it’s for the best. I just wanted it to be on my terms.

work, ————————————- 

@coffeentacos Yeah, it's shitty to get jerked around like that.
