So…the day before Thanksgiving my dh gets fired. I don’t want anyone thinking he’s a sleazebag, he’s the hardest working person I know and honestly the reason his boss gave him seems like an excuse. He works and goes to school full time and is getting his bs degree this spring. The reason I guess is b/c he gave the sale price on some pop when the sale ended a few hours before his shift (the stickers were still up and the customer was arguing and he didn’t know). A warning would have been completely understandable…but just getting fired? Oh, and this happened EXACTLY 2 weeks after we found out I was pregnant. When we were still struggeling w/ infertility I always joked that if he dropped out of school and lost his job I would get pregnant. He worked as a manager and was the only one that actually did anything during his shift (I’m sure most people can relate). I guess bad things happen to good people…but really?! Happy Thanksgiving to you too. I’m a housewife and we’re spending his “vacation” filling out job apps.
I was planning on making dinner tomorrow, but Instead we’re driving down to see my family until Sunday. Otherwise we would be sitting at home being depressed and stressed out. I think it’ll be good for us to be around ppl right now. Just wanted to vent to the supportive bee’s:)

@JewishBride: Oh sheesh. That’s absolutely terrible. I don’t think he should’ve been fired over that whatsoever. Technically, he was right in doing so because of the “false advertisement”. What a shitty reason. I am somewhat angry for you two.
I wish you two the best of luck. FI was laid off this week so I know exactly how you’re feeling. I’m not pregnant, but it’s hard enough to survive as it is. Hang in there though. We’re always here for you if you need to vent some more.

Aww I’m so sorry you guys have to go through this! I can’t imagine going through that with my Fiance. Just focus on the good things – you are blessed with the gift of your pregnancy! I hope he finds another job soon!

I will be praying that God drops the perfect job in his lap. In the meantime can he fight this? If he never had any write ups this seems extreme. Can he collect unemployment?

I am sorry this has to be so stressful. I hope your Darling Husband will find something new soon.
This has to be the worst T-day ever. Found out I am likely having a miscarriage. My hcg levels have started dropping and I will get the next test on Friday. I am a hot mess (I hate that tem, but it is so appropriate at thi point).

Excuse my language, but shit…I am so sorry :(. Tell him to apply anywhere and everywhere. Indeed.com is a good engine that comes up with multiple job searches from multiple job sites.

Oh man, I am soo sorry! Life is really funny like that where everythign finally goes right and the sheets get ripped out from under you.
But don’t fear, your husband sounds like an amazing, honest and intelligent man who will find gainful employment in no time. Stay close to family and freinds, and take time to give thanks for what you do have tommorow!
Praying for you and your family !

Oh crap! Darling Husband got fired this spring and it was really stressfull, so I understand how you feel. At least you can try to relax (ideally forget) for tomorrow at least and be around family and enjoy yourself. I went wild and filled out a zillion apps for Darling Husband, I actually got carpal tunnel from working so hard on them. Things will work out for you, try not to over-stress so you can maintain a healthy pregnancy. That matters way more than the trouble that inevitably surfaces in life!
They can fire anyone for any reason. Darling Husband got fired because they lied and said he stole. No evidence, no witness, nothing. There is no way he even could have stolen, because all the cash is on video the entire time (not to mention he would never steal! He has worked countless retail jobs at a register and needed the job not some stolen dollars. He is trustworthy!) Sometimes they just get you no matter what you do. Hang in there!

Oh wow, that is such a ridiculous reasoning! I’ve worked in customer service since I was 15 and I’ve always been told that the customer gets the price on the sign, even if the sign is wrong. And to get FIRED!? Wow. I hope he finds a job soon!

Sorry for the bad luck, but remember that being healthy, having enough to eat, and being around loved ones is all we really need. I’m sure your husband will find another job soon. Try to enjoy Thanksgiving with your family and don’t stress too much.

Just got back from out vacation yesterday! It was nice to just relax. He has a job interview later today and we’re hoping it goes well. The more I think about the reason he lost his job the crazier it seems. So many good and hard working people get fired. I had to repeat it over and over to him that just b/c he got fired does not mean he’s a bad person…he felt really ashamed of himself and it made me so upset:(
It’s horrible being pregnant and going through this. I’m hungry all the time and I don’t know if we’re going to be able to replace the food we eat. It’s so scary. This whole situation kind of puts life in perspective for us. We have each other and our unborn baby. Jobs are replaceable, but family isn’t.
@ieatunicorns:I am so sorry:( I’m here if you ever need to talk!
