- Wedding: May 2013
Roughly three weeks ago, FH and I were estatic over him finding a new job with better pay, better benefits, closer to where we want to live together…
The only saying – if It seems too good to be true, it probably is.
Now we’re in hell…. and my parents are asking if we’ll postpone the wedding.
I need some advice.
FH started a new job with a storage company two weeks ago. He’s in training, so he’s always with another person. he worked Monday – Thursday. Then he had Friday and Saturday of Labor Day weekend off.
He works all day Sunday and Monday in training, shadowing another person to learn.
When FH went into work on Tuesday, he worked most his shift till 2 p.m. – before the regional manager comes in. Regional manager pulls him aside – alone- and says that it was discovered $1,000 went missing over Labor Day weekend, between close of business Thursday and Sunday. As FH is new and on this three-months probation, he is suspended while an investigation is carried out. Then he is asked to leave for the day. He’ll be contacted with the results of the investigation within two weeks (no specifics on how).
Here’s the Kicker and WTF – FH didn’t work Friday or Saturday. Two of the three days in question.
Also – FH is a trainee. He doesn’t have keys/access to the register or the safe. He doesn’t handle anywhere near $1,000.
Plus – He was never left alone.
So… now FH left a job he loved, but didn’t pay much, and … doesn’t know if he has a job in the future. If so, it’s probably not a company or people he wants to work with given how they have treated him.
THey still owe him a paycheck for 9 days work, one of which was a holiday.
He called the company’s HR department twice today trying to get a copy of company handbook and details on how to collect his paycheck while suspended. No calls back.
So it seems like a “firing” where they are trying to blame him. I KNOW he would never do this, his ass would be kicked by his NYPD cop parents. He’s besides himself, not sleeping, angry and feeling guilty.
FH doesn’t have much money saved, and -IF- he doesn’t get this crappy job back or get unemployment pay – we have no idea where the money for his bills will come from. He doesn’t have enough savings to carry him far.
My mother asked if we’ll postpone the wedding?
After dating five years, and being engage for two years – I don’t see the point of delaying. All our major vendors are paid for with only $2,000 outstanding. There’s still invites (printed at home), favors (not necessary) and tuxes to pay for – but that’s minimal.
She says we should wait till things are stable.
What would you do?
