I got fired today.
Naturally I'm very upset. Not so much that I got fired because I was looking for a new job anyway. I hated one of the Dr's I worked for and apparently he hated me too. I was still in the 90 day grace period, so my attendance was being monitored very closely. This idiot Dr kept sending me home for the stupidest reasons. One day he sent me home because I started my period. What a jerk. He said he needed me to be on top of my game. I have no idea what that has to do with anything, but i had to go home because he said so. He also said I asked too many questions. Well, I needed to know where all the materials and other instruments were kept if he wanted me to assist him. He didn't like my attitude either. I sang songs and hummed along with the Kozy 105 that was always playing. I guess that was the wrong attitude to have. Anyway, he sent me home enough times that I got fired for it. I know why he didn't like me. I did do something that I probably shouldn't have. I kinda called him out. He had a bad habit of correcting me and his other assistants in front of the patients. It made us all look stupid. I was often humiliated for really stupid things like leaving a blank line on the patient charts. One day I had had enough of his correcting me in front of the patients so I told him so, in front of a patient. I asked him how it felt to be humiliated. I realize now that that was a bad call on my part. Now I don't have a job and no money and a very big house payment. This is the second time in 5 months that I have been unemployed. I don't know if I'm being punished or humbled. Mike says maybe I'm being a little bit of both - pummeled. Sure does feel like it.
