FML - The follow-up

Today, I got fired after three days at my new job. They told me it was because of downsizing. They were still interviewing people and had a help wanted sign in the window. FML

Hey guys, OP here. Thank you to all of those who are telling me that I can do better and that they don't need me. The job was at Taco Johns so I wasn't all too devastated to be fired. I would have liked them to tell me the real reason they fired me or come to me and tell me what I was doing wrong so I could have a chance to fix it before they fired me but sadly they were not mature enough to do that. The main manager at the store really didn't like me for some reason unknown to me so I'm guessing that's why she fired me. Unfortunately I do live in a state where they do not need a reason to fire someone. Needless to say I will be finding another job. Who knows, maybe I'll go work at Taco Bell, haha. Thanks again.

No, I meant 27. We got him from my neighbor and his kids were 25-26 at the time and they got the cat when the kids were born. Then at the time I had posted this it had been two years since I got him so therefore he was 27. He died at 28. I would go to Guinness world records but we don't have any papers proving it.

Well, assuming you didn't do anything wrong to get fired, I'm sorry that happened. You don't really want to work for people like that who would lie to you about the reason you got fired. You're better off now.

Honestly, I cannot imagine a situation where they would fire a new employee even though they're obviously in dire need of more help where it WOULDN'T be at least partly the employee's fault. There has to be something seriously wrong with OP's work ethic or character for them to decide to let them go after only three days. Since they're obviously not actually downsizing, there's no other reason to fire someone after such a short period of time.

I agree, because it seems unlikely that someone would just be fired for no reason. However, I was giving OP the benefit of the doubt with the disclaimer at the beginning.

Also, it would be helpful for the company to tell them at least why they're being fired. Especially if it was something they did or had to do with their work ethic.

Great point. If I were fired suddenly, I would not leave until they told me why, because if it was a problem with me, I would want to know about it. That way I could try to fix whatever my problem was so I wouldn't get fired again in the future.

22, I would usually agree with you, except they didn't tell OP what he did wrong. How many employees do you know fire someone for something they did and don't tell them about it? I wonder if they didn't like OP but didn't actually have a good reason for firing him and that's why they used the downsizing excuse. Very weird to me.
