Station 19 and a half

Today, while working on an ambulance, I got a call from my boss saying I’m fired for being sick too often. I cried in front of every patient for the last seven hours of my shift. FML

You’d think the firing would be done, not only in a face-to-face setting, but also either at the end of the shift or you’re not expected to work the rest of the day. Especially in an ambulance. How can you focus on your work if you’re crying the whole day?!

That’s grounds for a lawsuit. You can’t be fired for being sick if you have medical issues. Also, you’re a trooper for finishing your shift because I would’ve said to drop me off at home. That’s ridiculous.

I did. Then again, my employer broke my back (physically) right before firing me, but not before refusing to get me medical care for 2 hours then dumping me at an emergicare (and yes, I am suing because I lost my entire IT career. Worst part was, I was injured by my coworkers in A HOSPITAL which they refused to take me to the ER in the place my back got broken. Lost my career, lost a marriage, lost my dog, my posessions and my life as Im too badly damaged to work in the field I went to school half my life for. You would cry too if you felt your back physically break!
