Oh no!!! I’m so sorry to hear you got fired for something so out of your control!!!!

You said before that if you loose your job, you don’t want your Maid/Matron of Honor to be in the wedding anymore. Honestly…… I wouldn’t want her in my life at all! She put your livelihood at risk! That’s not what a best friend does. She CLEARLY doesn’t respect you like she should. And she committed fraud! She has to go……. That’s not a friend……

In utter shock they fired you. You’d think they’d stand by their employees who’ve been with them for a decade. I’m sure you’ll find something better. What a bunch of jerkwads.

I’m so sorry to hear this!  But like you said, I think things happen for a reason.  I hope you are able to find something else soon.  Do you think you can fight this?

I am so sorry this happened!!!  I would be so upset with my Maid/Matron of Honor, although it does seem like your company was all too eager to let you go.  I do agree maybe a new job would be a good thing if you felt trapped in your current position, but I am soory it happened this way.  What will you do with you MOH?  I am not sure I would be able to get past it.

That’s ridiculous! Do you have an employment relations authority for unfair dismissal over there?

So sorry you went through this! It was completely out of your control but as you said things happen for a reason and I’m sure you will find a job where yu are happier. With your Maid/Matron of Honor I think you need to be honest and say that you’re so pissed about her carelessness and that it caused you to loose your job and you need to take time wihtout her. Cut her out of your life until you re employed and happy again and if that is before the wedding great then work on your relationship with her and have her come as a guest but if it is afer the wedding, then it is a consequence she needs to accpet for her actions.

I’m so sorry to hear you were let go. It does sound like they were just looking for any reason to fire you and perhaps it’s for the best if you weren’t happy there.

As for your Maid/Matron of Honor, I think it’s a stupid mistake but I highly doubt she did it with the intent of hurting you. She probably figured that since you were able to give away discounts at any time that it would be okay to update that form. Still not okay but it wouldn’t be a deal breaker for me.

ETA: It sounds like there are multiple other issues with your Maid/Matron of Honor. I was basing my advice above on my relationship with my Maid/Matron of Honor who I talk to everyday and have never had anything like that come up. It sounds like it might be time to move on from that friendship.

Wow. I’m so Sorry. Hopefully you qualify for unemployment while you look for a new job. It’s not much, but it’s something.

As for your Maid/Matron of Honor. I’d personally not have someone like that in my wedding. Your Maid/Matron of Honor should be your best friend, and someone you love and trust. She’s not quite someone who meets these qualifications.

Wait, this is strike two of her getting you fired from a job? Drop her ass. She doesn’t sound like a friend or even a decent human I’d like to be around. Good luck on the job hunt, I’d file for unemployment and fight for it too.
