I am so mad right now it is ridiculous. I have had to miss work the last 4 days, which is a lot I know, but it is because I have been in and out of the doctors & ER – in ridiculous amounts of pain/getting sick/passing out. Early this morning I had to go in to the ER and had to stay all day and was on morphine and everything. I have doctors statements stating that I have a disease that results in episodes of severe pain and that I would need to miss work in the event of having a flare up. This is something that my boss knows about – I’ve told him although there seems to be a communication barrier because I don’t know if he is just too stupid to understand me or if he really doesn’t know what I’m saying.
Well after the ER today I made sure to call my boss and offered to come in over the weekend and work to make up time and catch up before Monday. I even thanked him for being understanding about it and he acted totally fine. Well one of my coworkers just e-mailed me to give me a heads up that my boss apparently gave them a note (there are only 4 of us in our office) saying that if any of us missed more than 4 days of work then we would be fired and wants us to SIGN it. Why in the hell would I give him permission to fire me? Things happen to people, I’m surely not going to just say “ok yeah its fine if you fire me even though I 100% COULD NOT have worked the last few days”. It is especially stupid because yes I know he is the boss, but a couple of weeks ago his little girl was really sick and he missed 4 days straight to take care of her while she was in and out of doctors so it isn’t as if he isn’t aware that things happen to people where they need days off.
What do I do? I’m going in tomorrow morning and he is supposedly going to be there. I don’t even know what to say to him. I was going to attempt to work and go to school at the same time, but honestly I don’t know if in the fall I should just say screw it and go to school full time and take a refund check instead of working for this d-bag.
