SDworkinggirl tells us more.
Okay so let me clarify some things that people are either stupid or confused about. I voluteered in an organization that has retirement homes all over the country, and helps seniors with limited means. I started volunteering, because it looks good on a resume and I was having a hard time getting a job. So I started volunteering at this retirement home, but I quickly grew to love it, and soon I was working hard because I truely enjoyed visiting with the seniors and delivering mail to them, among the other things I did there. Unknown to me, some of the residents started to complain about how I was nicer and more caring than most of the nurses. They didn't hire me because, I am not a nurse, and I don't have a college degree yet, so there was no position open for me. And the guy who "fired" me let me know why I was being let go, kinda in secret otherwise I doubt I would have been told why they let me go.

Did you know that things on TV can actually happen in real life? I know, this is a lot of information for you to take in...but; it can. OP-- That's...weird. But at least it was just volunteer work. You didn't get paid, so you didn't lose a money source. All you really lost is the feeling of self-accomplishment, I guess? They were really complimenting you. I hate to be one of those whiners complaining...but. This isn't really an FML. At all.
