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.

Did you know that people are so desperate that they'll lie to sound important even to complete strangers? I know it's a lot of information for you to take in...but, it can.

wow...you are one selfish son of a bitch. OP- I am sorry that happened. but count this as a blessing because they OBVIOUSLY were just jealous that you were such a hardworker and just weren't appreciating what you did.

Look, Op is putting spin on this story. She is pissy about being fired from her volunteer job, she is just saying she was such a hard worker, when that probably wasn't why she was fired

Now that's something to be ashamed to say. Is money everything you care about ? How about volontairing for a cause ? Because you actually want to help ?

I guess you never went to highschool. Volunteering is forced sometimes....15 hours to get into National Honors Society at my highschool...and even more if you want to be "well rounded" and get into a good college when grades are not enough.
