My problems started in Oct 2005, when I applied for a job in my city. I had worked at my previous job for ten years and they transferred me an hour away from my house. I took it because I had just brought a new car. A couple of weeks later I found out that a new store was opening in my town, it was five minutes from my house and it paid more money. (The grass is not always greener on the other side) I applied and was turned down twice for this job and I was shocked when they called me back. Well when I go there everybody was stealing, lying, trash talking and nobody trusted anyone. I was the nicest manager there and it got me fired. I got stabbed in the back because of a rumor. And the crazy thing is nobody from the original crew is there today, they all got fired, karma is a bitch. I still had my part time job so I was able to pay my bills. One day a friend told me about another management job. I applied and I was hired on the spot. Once I got there everything was fine until I got transferred to another store. One employee constantly talked about the other employees behind their backs, and called the DM almost everyday behind my back. She told the other employees I was the one talking behind their backs but I wasn't. I lost all of their support, nobody trusted me and to make matters worse, I donated our damaged goods to a local homeless shelter and the DM thought I stole all the stuff. I told her to call the shelter but because she was a bitch, she fired me and I was put on a list for stealing from this company, so I cannot work in retail for seven years. I quit the part time job because the owner came in when I was resting, he thought I should have been working. I wasn't about to let him yell at me like a child so I quit. I found another job and I loved everyone there and they loved me. The manager took over twenty thousand dollars from the company and they hired a new manager. The bitch. I did my job but I would call the DM when I could not get her. She was giving away free rooms and she thought she would get caught so the only way she could get rid of me was to make my cash drawer short. I was fired but I called the DM and told her everything and she actually believed me, but without witnesses she could not do anything. All the other people were so afraid of losing their jobs they said nothing. The ironic thing was after I left they all left. I have been unemployed for almost three years. I had to move back in with my mother, file bankruptcy, but because I couldn't keep up with the payments on a chapter 13 it was terminated. I lost my car after paying it off because they tacked on late fees, they cut off my unemployment, I got a ticket that I cannot pay so my license will be suspended. I hate this dumb town I live in, this town needs an extra strong enema. The only way you can get a job here is by who you know, not what you know. The employment service is a total joke. For eighteen years they have never, ever found me a job. I know I have a curse on me because everything I try to do fails. Everything. I have a college degree in art? How can I get a job with a art degree? I's like I wasted my time and money going to school. I was going to become an art teacher but in this state that is like, unheard of. But don't feel bad for me, I am moving in February to another state. Now if I can find a witch doctor to remove this spell I will be alright.
