This is a true FML. I know what it's like to lose a pet, OP, and it's much worse than you would expect. And to then be out of a job makes this truly depressing. But don't worry, you will find another job, and once you're ready perhaps you can welcome another little kitten into your life. Maybe this is an opportunity to improve yourself - to make something good out of all this.
92- While I voted FYL, I was very torn as OP obviously had a rough day. However crying over your cat, at work is pretty unprofessional, some times you just have to suck it up and put your game face on for 8 hours. Also, we must ask why (if) OP was fired? that usually doesn't happen for no reason. I hope that explains why ~1800 say YDI.
I very much disagree with that principle. Of course OP was fired for a reason. But losing a beloved pet is traumatic and absolutely sad. OP may have just broken at some point, remembering that her cat had passed away. And why she got fired has nothing at all to do with this.
102- I didn't cry over a close family member who passed recently (while I was at work), I saved it for later. Life sucks, that's why FML is a viable site. Man/woman up! No sense crying at work over shit you can't change. Your boss/co-workers will be much more unforgiving than the FML community... Also, where I'm from, you get bereavement days for family members, not cats.
First of all, 104, not everyone deals with their emotions in the same way! Some people, such as myself, are very emotional and expressive and find it hard to hide their feelings whether in public or not. Not everyone can just swallow and bottle up their feelings for a more convenient time. Everyone deals with their grief differently so don't be telling OP or anyone to "man/woman up" according to your own standards! Second of all, I am of the belief that you should get at least one day bereavement for pets. Everyone should know by now that most people consider their pets as family and the loss of one is devastating therefore requiring some time to grieve. To deny that just doesn't make any sense. I know this is not the case in any workplace that I know of but I just think it should be.
When I had to put my Saint Bernard down, I cried the day of, after, and two months later when I realized how much I missed the big lug. He was such a sweatheart. Cow-sized, but a sweetheart. Point is, 104, that people grieve differently and cannot be expected to save sadness for later. Don't be so unfeeling - as has been said, a pet is family and family is more important than your job.
that's absolutely horrible, I'm so sorry OP, and RIP your kitty and hopefully you find another job soon! :)
Cats are like goldfish to me. I'd like To keep my job thank you. I may be biased having lived on a farm with about 1320 cats though... They weren't pets, they were 100% on their own and expendable mouse killers. I await MASSIVE thumbs down now, but don't care, it's nature.
I had to take my sick cat to the vet last week because i couldn't afford an operation to save her life T_T I'm so sorry about your cat, OP.
Gud va synd! Hoppas att du hittar ett nytt jobb och förlåt om din kat
