Did you not think to call into to work to mention that you would be late because of a family emergency? Showing up late without prior notice is pretty irresponsible (unless you were in an emergent situation that rendered you unable to call ... such as you had a heart attack or were trapped under a 10 car pileup or something.) Also, I know it's never nice to loose a pet, but to be so hysterical in a situation like this is odd. While it seems like poor judgement on your mothers part to call you, if she was truly upset, it may indicate a more serious issue such as depression.

I understand that you're upset but i guess it wasn't your first time being late for work, otherwise you wouldn't get fired.

Any place that has such strict attendance criteria are not worth working for.

I said the situation "may" indicate a serious condition. It could also be that the mother is a complete jokester. It could also be that the entire post is fabricated ... or a myriad other possibilities. I know it is not possible to render a medical or psychiatric diagnosis through an internet comment. I simply mentioned that it may be a possibility based on the limited information provided. Only a consultation to a trained medical professional can render a definitive diagnosis of clinical depression.

If your mother calls you in hysterics telling you there's been a death in the family, I can't say my first thought would be oh I better tell work. I'd be way too worried, upset and anxious to get home.

That's why you would ring back to find out what happened.

I agree. My dog that I had for 15 years I had to put down this week. Before we made the decision my mom called me crying hysterically too because it's sad and upsetting. But I know that after I got off the phone with my mom I was booking it home, I didn't even think about calling work. On top of that, the appointment took longer, and I had to work, so I didn't think to call work to tell them I'm going to be late because I was saying goodbye to a family member.

usually, if a person has been told there has been a death in their family, their first concern most likely isn't going to be calling in for work to let them know they will be late; the only thing they think about is who died. so her job should be a little more understanding even though the death was of a fish, but how was OP supposed to know that? ? smh

& you're really going to call OP responsible here? how was OP supposed to know she was going to get a phone call about a death before hand? sorry but not the brightest comment mate

It's actually a very little known fact that fish are incredibly strong with the force. How do you think they're able to breathe underwater for their entire lives? Even the most powerful force sensitive human can't even manage it for a single day.
