I feel for you. One would think that having a test postponed is something to celebrate, but most of the time when that happened it just pissed me off.

You'd fire someone just because they called in for personal reasons? Really? Even if you didn't know what it was? If they were informed in the morning that some very important matter called them away from work (like a man's wife was having complications during labor, for example...), you'd fire them for calling in? I feel sorry for anyone who ever has to work under you.

How is losing your job "having it easy"? How do you know the OP wasn't working to earn money in order to pay back a loan shark? Now they have to worry about having their kneecaps shot! You inconsiderate bastard. God, fascists make me sick!

What virtually nobody seems to realize is that sarcasm doesn't work over the internet... Speaking of which...#19: I'm German. Do I make you sick now?

@subtext being german doesn't make u automatically facist or a Nazi. calling a German Nazi is like calling a black person a nigger. and I am not saying u said anything about Nazis but i recurve this sort of ignorance from Americans all the time.

I get my wrist cut by cats every hour...I want friends but everyone fears me, I'm hated for no reason and I think OP has it harsh you just think your special so everyone pays attention to you

Ouch! Maybe you shouldn't have taken so many breaks from work beforehand! Orrr, don't wait until the last minute to study!

agreed. typically when you get fired from work it's not because it was a 1x thing usually it's habitual. so sounds like ydi

Yep. Just calling out of work for no specific reason except something "personal" is just not okay. If you had to study for a test why didn't you talk to your manager before to make arrangements? Or studied when you didn't have to work? If someone would just not come to work in this kind of situation and I were the manager, I'd be pissed too...don't know if I would fire that person (maybe not if it was the first time), but you still deserved that.

There are personal issues like this and then there are important personal issues. If I'd employ students one of the first questions I'd ask would be when they have examinations. If they call in for personal reasons the day before an examination, I'd automatically think "Hmm...did he slack off?" That would be a bad thing - first, because slacking off always leaves a bad impression and second, because it wasn't really honest. If someone doesn't come for personal reasons it is usually (a

Calling in the day of does not qualify as a requested leave of absence. Managers will normally work with students to make a schedule which fits their needs, but that requires a little notice and discussion. People who have no regard for their coworkers and ditch work last minute deserve to get fired.

dude you totally deserved that. I'm so tired of students calling in because you have to study for a fucking test. why accept the job requirements if you can't be there.. and if not, ask for the day off in advance. If I were in your managers position I would have done the exact same thing.

yeah, that's how you run out of workers. managers are quite bad for demanding overtime from students and moaning when the students can't do it. he probably shouldn't have called in but being fired for it was a bit extreme.

Yeah, 'cause teachers never inform students of a test only a few days in advance...right. For all we know the material was proving harder for OP then they anticipated and they needed extra time or something like that.
