It seems like I only have time to post big, life-changing events...and then I disappear. Well, here's another one: I was terminated from my job on Monday. At high noon. (Isn't that cute?)
I had to let some time pass before I felt like I could write a post about this, although some of you reading this already knew. Thank you for the emails, FB messages, tweets, texts, and phone calls--it's wonderful to know that so many of you care. A few of you have even given me some direction about where to look.
What happened? Part of me doesn't want to get into it and part of me wants to go on a word rampage. I don't remember if I wrote about this, but back in April, I was reprimanded for something with the "promise" that if things didn't improve, the next step would be termination. I guess they felt like I didn't improve, however, I will say that I wasn't given much (if any) direction on any progress, how to go about improvement, etc. yet, in that final meeting, I was told (among other things) that I should have just known and that my boss "needed someone that I didn't have to tell things to." Should I have been a mind reader?
I'll have more to say about this later, including what's been going through my mind as I try to figure out my next step. Stay tuned!
