My best friend, who I happened to work with at the time, went to work one morning, and the boss was waiting in her office. Fired her for things she didn’t do. It was heartbreaking! Me and other co-workers tried to explain to the boss that it wasn’t her, but she wouldn’t have it. It was sickening.

She is lucky in the sense that her husband has a steady income, but it really upset her, understandably. She recently found a new job, which happens to be at the same job I just got offered a position at! So it will be great to work with her again.

I hope everything works out for your friend. In these times, jobs are extremely hard to come by.

Oh wow! That is so bad for employee morale. What’s done is done for your friend, but I hope everything works out for you though!

I can say from a few months experience that being a house girlfriend is not that bad. It’s actually a great opportunity to work on yourself as a whole. Maybe boost your self esteem by defining yourself by other areas besides just your work. Let’s just hope it doesn’t come to that though!

This is so sad and Im sorry to hear about  your friend. As for you dont be stressed out before you even know anything. You are really thinking worst case senerio here. You even said yourself your job doesnt have the same requirements. Not to mention that even IF you did lose your job, its not like you would be unemployed forever. Dont let this get you down!!!
