letting out my frustration!


forrre

Recommended Posts

I am sorry but I need to let it out. I have been in the biz for 8 years and have a very good rep in my area. I have never had this happen before or have never had a friend in the biz been treated this way. At 10 till 6, closing time, on sat night, I was told by the owner of the 2 stores that I manage that he was putting one of them up for sale and needed my keys to both stores that I was no longer an employee. I was not given any notice or warning and was just dumped out on the sidewalk. He told me that it was because they could no longer afford my sal and that he had hoped that I would remain a customer.

 

I have a family to raise and bills to pay. I can understand that there could be financial probs but at least he should have given me notice or some kind of heads up. But nothing other than come and get your things on sunday!!!

 

I am sorry guys but I have had alot of members here support me with kind words and some locals that have come in the store to meet me and I would like to say thanks to all of you who have supported your small local stores as with out you guys we would have not been around for the time that we where.

 

Ok, now I can feel better for the rest of the day.

 

Adrian

Oh my! I'm so sorry to hear that. What a jerk. Do you have any recourse as far as a contract? I know the standard is that employers/employees have to give 2 weeks notice, but for any reason can leave/be let go. In this case it sounds like extenuating circumtances. ;)

 

In any case, I wish you and your family well and hope you find something soon.

Sorry to hear that. Not a cool move at all by the owner. And what's with hoping that you still remain a customer? Talk about a callous remark. How about helping you find another job before worrying about you spending money...

 

So here's a wild thought. How's your credit? Maybe you can buy his store. It's a risk, but one that only you know if it is worth it.

thanks guys. I have been offered 2 other jobs and am not to worried about the money. I am just pissed about the lack of respect. As for buying the store, They are asking WAY to much and at this time I would rather not deal with them in anyway if possiable. Like I said before, I have been pretty smart with my money so I can make it without an income at this time but I will have a job with in the next week. Thanks again for your words as it is nice to have the support.

 

Keep it in the short grass.

Hope that anything new works for you, because that was a serious lack of respect to you on your boss' part. Best wishes and cheers.

That is very poor on your employers part - some notification should be issued. Wish you the best in whatever avenue you take as far as your next job.

It's standard courtesy but in nearly every state (or perhaps every state), it's only a courtesy because they like to get the same thing if an employee chooses to leave (notice). But it's not law.

 

Perhaps the guy is having his own financial troubles. Perhaps his sudden "I'm selling" indicates this. Not the best way to handle things, but I tend to give the benefit of the doubt to people: he may be an a** or maybe he's been backed into a corner.

Thanks again for all your support. I have accepted a job today out of the golf biz. This is why I enjoy this forum so much. You all are like good friends and its nice to have the support.

 

I am not the type to blacklist a person or there biz as it is fair for each perso to create there own op. and not to live by anothers word. I will say that the stores are not in the topeka or lawrence area. I, myself, will not go back as a customer but I will also not discourge anyone to not go because of the problem that I have with them. I do have alot of friends that have told me that they will not enter the stores but that is buy there choice.

 

Again thanks for all the support.

Adrian, you are handling the situation with a great deal of class... I know that the notice isn't necessarily a legality, but I have to admit, I would not be able to be 100% certain that I would be able to keep my cool in such a situation again (it already happened to me, but at least I was) given ample notice and lead time. You have all of our respect and congradulations on securing the better job in the industy :idhitit:

Adrian, Unfortunately this style is quite common in the corporate world. It avoids the employee from doing any damage or stealing any propert, obviously, I am not suggesting that you would do any of that. It sucks from the employees point of view but great from a pure non caring business owners point of view. It is a sad way to do business but I understand why it is done. Good luck with your new job! There are a lot of bumps in the road in life. It is impressive to see that you have landed on your feet so quickly.

Thanks again guys and gals. I have since started my new job and have lost playing time. I will be doing well to get out 3 times a month. Oh well so is life, my child is healthy as am I so what more do I need.

Funny, I fall out of a tree head first into cow poo and still am able to walk away not smelling that bad.
