I really don’t think you are in a bad situation there.  She doesn’t seem to like the job and wants to leave it.  It’s unfortunate that she let it get that bad that they are considering firing her but it sounds like she might be moving away soon so maybe you won’t have to deal with her as much?

I don’t see the issue.  She got HERSELF into a situation where she’s about to be fired because of her poor attide.  I’m sure if she’d been as stellar and employee as you, they wouldn’t be asking you to come back all the time.

I would take the job back. She is causing herself pain by the attitude and poor code towards workmanship/travel. She would be fired if you moved back or not, so it is a great oppurantity for you. You might even be doing her a favor…since she seems to be soo unhappy that she can’t stop complain for five mins about it.

If I were you, I would definitely take the job back.

Life’s tough and whiners don’t get ahead. I’d take the job and not feel an inch sorry for it. If they’re already planning on firing her, chances are she’s a bad employee to begin with. And running her mouth doesn’t make it better. It’s a shame she gets to reap the benefits of unemployment in the meantime and enjoy a free break, ha!

It’s tough because you don’t want the animosity between your mom/you and the neighbor once she gets fired; however, she is doing this to herself.  YOU have to remember that she complains all the time, and that YOU did the nice thing by not having them fire her when you came back. Now, it’s all up to her and she’s not doing it.

Take the job back. It seems like the universe is wanting you to return to your previous job, and there could be worse situations to be in. Obviously she doesn’t enjoy the job, and would you rather they fired her ANYWAY and gave the job to someone else?

You put your professional reputation on the line when you suggested her for the job.  She’s had enough time to prove herself and is in fact doing many things that are going to get her fired.  Take back the job without guilt.  Trust me, I’ve spent the last year looking for work.  After more than 100 resumes sent out I have a job offer — at a nice job that pays 1/2 what I made before.  You liked the job, she didn’t, if she holds it against you too bad for her!
