This May Be a Deal Breaker
Please welcome Deedra to the sofa.
The long hours, miserable co-workers and that ass of a boss are now dead to me. I couldn’t stand it any longer and had to find a way to escape the misery. My hubby wouldn’t understand, if I told him the truth about what really happened. He was shocked that I was let go because he knows that I’m conscientious and work very hard. I told him I was fired for one little mistake, but the that’s just a lie. I felt compelled to lie because of our financial situation-not good. I hope he never finds out the truth, it could be a deal breaker. The truth is that I wanted to get fired and made a series of mistakes while hoping it would negate my permanent dismissal. All I feel now is relief from the every day torture of going to a job I hated with people that I had absolutely nothing in common with. I’m finally free and it feels good.
Junie: Misery in the work place is all too common and sometimes leads us to desperate measures. It’s too bad you can’t share your feelings with your husband. I’m glad you’re free and hope you can find employment in this tough economy.
