Today, I got laid off. I abandoned my friends, my boyfriend and moved 10 hours away for this job because my uncle convinced me to. My uncle is my employer. FML

That is so unbelievably messed up. So sorry to hear that, OP!!

Damn. I hope even though you abandoned your friends and boyfriend, that you ended things on really good terms and you can go back home to them :c I'm sorry your uncle did that to you.

What a dick... FYL

It's soooorta a YDI. She made the decision to leave and take the job, expecting special treatment from her Uncle. Taking any job is a risk, He wouldn't lay her off without good reason. Especially after convincing her to go there.

That is so unbelievably messed up. So sorry to hear that, OP!!

Yeah... Uncle should've looked out for you in someway if he was going to have you move out there.

Show it anyway

Work should always come first especially if it's your dream job, if it isn't then no need to abandon everyone you love

@38 work shouldn't cause you to abandon your friends or family. You should work to live, not live to work. People who live to work are the least happy, and have significant heath issues caused by it. I'm sorry you think work is the most important thing in life, because it means your life is empty.

Wow.. Sorry op :(

I feel like this is your uncle's idea of an elaborate prank.

I'm sorry to hear that, but wasn't it your decision?

that sucks! hopefully he'll change his mind?

See if you can move back and explain to your friends and boyfriend that your uncle screwed you over, if they're true friends they should understand.

That's horrible :/
