Well, at least for now. (My apologies in advance for the length....but I have to vent it somehow!) I was working for a small family-owned(ugh) company. I started with ONLY the Dad since the son could not operate it will. The Dad and I built it up from the ground (practically)for the first two years. THEN, he brings in the lazy, rich-attitude daughter and it went downhill from there. One time, I'd asked her to put the claims (we did Medicaid billing) in numeral order (duh) and she looked at me with FIRE in her eyes and said BOLDLY...'THAT'S TOO HARD'!!! Mind you, she's 32 and a mother! Since I'm not the confrontational type, I started shaking and was VERY upset. I walked away, said, "Whatever is easier for you" and she did not speak to me for a week! What a mess!! So, I put up with it for TWO YEARS. I never, from that point on, asked her to do ANYTHING. AND, I never "tattled" to her Dad either. She's HIS problem. Well, it got to the point of my having anxiety attack at work two weeks ago. THEN, they have the nerve to say that I "decided not to return" when I'd called the boss to talk about "what things he can change (around there), what things he cannot" (His words) but he never called back and I NEVER resigned or quit! I get an e-mail from lazy daughter telling me to return to get my FINAL paycheck, return my keys and pick up my belongings. WHAT?? I was willing to at least SEE if he would fire the daughter, in hopes that the future of that company was important but he never called. So, I'm trying to collect unemployment, which I feel he will dispute. (cheap-o at best and he did NOT carry Workmen's Comp-not mandated in TX where I worked) The thing that may help me is that, with my FINAL paycheck, he called it Severance. Isn't "severance" used predominantly when someone is either fired or let go?? Anyway,I'm wanting to do a smaller job. (I was operations manager there) My thought is for Senior Care (non-medical companionship). It would probably pay 1/5 of what I made but I wanna be happy!! Plus,I'm doing that proofreading for my neighbor the Court Reporter and I have my handcrafted soap to sell as well. If you've read this entire "journal", thank you!!
