Yeah, I had one of those days. Our pet rabbit died this morning, I'm behind on my schoolwork by a lot, and my job says they're gonna fire me if I call out tomorrow. They can't legally fire me, so I'm gonna call out in a legit way and tell them that if they really want to discuss my termination that my lawyer will be present to collect information for my wrongful termination lawsuit.
I'm sure that every retailer out there wants the publicity of a lawsuit from an employee who was fired because they called out to have time to do their school work. That's gonna be great publicity.
At the end of the day, school comes first. It's taken me too many years to figure that part out.
