When the Wal-Mart mgrs were firing me, they were pissed as hell and I don't understand why. Told me I ain't fit to work and that I lack people skills to be working. All I did was curse out a coworker who pissed me off and punch the pole in the fitting room and banged my head into it in front of customers. I used to get along with her, but then she me for "harrassing" her and the customers reported me for workplace violence. The mgr. threw my badge across the table angrily and said I endangered everyone at the fitting room. He said ceiling tiles (10 lb each) coulda fallen (from 38 ft high) and hit someone. Why did they seem so angry? Was that even a (gross) misconduct? For all I know, they blew it out of proportion!
Furthermore, he's only 24 and she's only 26. Are they even old enough to make rational decisions as managers? How did he even know the wal-mart trivia about ceiling tiles? If he's too busy jerking those off to do his job, he doesn't qualify to hire and fire. He also said he let kids go for less than what I did and that I brought this onto myself. You know how humiliating it is to be canned in disgrace? I miss my badge and discount card. They were my pride. And yet to bear all the blame when my coworker was the one who triggered me is unthinkable!
She's a hypocrite. She said I was doing well late in December and then there she was justifying the canning early last month. I work very hard on the sales floor (ladies wear) and I'm very productive. Sometimes I get more done than other depts where I help out a lot when I don't get called up to people greet. How can anyone justifying the canning of a productive associate? With me gone, I'll just like to see how much they (don't) get done!
You are NOT too young to understand the ramification of your actions. I said it in your last question - you have ANGER issues and you need ANGER management classes. If you continue this way - your next employer will call the cops on you and have you aressted and then you will be FORCED to go to anger management. What you did was completely uncalled for and inappropriate.
It doesn't matter about your co-workers. They were horrified of your actions. I'd be too. Get some help. Do it for you. Everything they said about your past work performance is now negated. Don't blame others right now. It's a problem you need to address. Your anger is a problem for you.
welcome to the adult world- where actions do have ramifications.
own what you did- it is not good, but it is not a disaster either- step up admit it was wrong- and take steps to fix the problem.
as long as you learn from this lesson, you will be alright- get some help as april60 said.
You think that because he's intelligent enough to consider the danger of a 10 pound ceiling tile falling on a person from 38 feet high, he's not qualified to hire and fire? It's thinking like THAT that gets someone to a management position in the first place.
I merely think it's a trivia type fact. Most people don't know of them unless they waste lots of time jerking those off. I mean, how many Jeopardy questions can you actually get right?
Problem is, at 19, I was probably too young to understand the ramifications of my actions.
