Wouldn't "dad" only be 20 minutes away at that point? I guess he decided to let you stew in the crap for an hour because you are as significant and important to him as you are, scratch that, were to your ex-employer.

Yeah, so after 20 minutes, she knew she was let go. So her father was 20 minutes from where she works and forty minutes from home. If he had a cell phone, she calls him and he returns in 20 minutes. If he doesn't have a cell phone, she waits the 40 minutes until her father arrives at home and then calls him and it takes him an hour to get back to her former place of employment. So, it either takes 20 minutes for her father to return, or one hour and forty minutes. There is no way for the ti

Ah, was the OP supposed to yell "DAD!!!! COME GET ME" At the top of their lungs, and hop that her father would hear? You're obviously assuming he has a cell phone.

I think the confusion is that.... people think that she was immediately told that she was fired a while ago. But she was told that 20 minutes into the job.

or he could have dropped her off 10 minutes early so she wouldn't be late for work and started going home, so he was a half hour away, 20 minutes in the job and then had to drive the half hour back.

now you had over an hour to thank all of your colleagues and tell the cute girl you always had a crush on her just before you leave ;) they're an hour away, you won't see any of them anyway anymore...

Dad dropped her off and 20 minutes later she learned (learnt) she had been fired (sacked). Therefore, he would only be 20 minutes away. That assumes that he drives the same at all times. Maybe if I had such a loser of a kid, as soon as I offloaded her, I'd take off like a bat out of hell to avoid having to bring a lunch or other absent-mindedly forgotten item.

How did dad get home in 20 minutes? Wouldn't you have only had to wait 20 minutes after you found out? You're a retard. This is a dumb FML. Although they have been getting horrible.

Or she called him when home rather than on a cell phone and traffic wasn't as busy driving back seeing as most people are at work by then?

You have no idea where they worked. If it was an hour away and she needed a ride rather than using public transport it was quite probably on a farm or in an industrial area.
