Dogs 4 Life

Today, my boss wrote me up for appearing "depressing" to customers. I told her that I was upset because my dog had to be put down yesterday. She told me, "Aw that’s sad. But guess what? That dog ain’t gonna pay your bills and put bread on your table. So cut the emo crap or you’re fired." FML

I understand you might need the job, the money, but I think you really need to quit that job. Your principles and sanity are more important than a pay day. And if you're living a civilised society, you can actually report your boss for emotional abuse/negligence.

Stories like this piss me off! I needed to calm down to prevent overreacting.

Now that I've calmed down, I think the rational actions to take are torch her house or slip rat poison into her coffee.

Sorry about your dog.

Look for another job. Look for a place were they treat you with respect. Please don’t let treat you like that. Let them fire you so you can claim unemployment. Appearing depressing after a death in your family is not a good reason to fire someone.

your boss is a heartless biatch, also threatening to fire you, based solely on your mental health status is BS. you should walk up to her and say "remember when you threatened to fire me, well don't bother, I QUIT". Then go get unemployment, and a job that treats you with respect. oh yeah and also talk to a labor lawyer, and file a complaint with the labor department.
