    Bad luck on Friday the 13th

    Yep. Spot of bad luck. Lost my job today. Trust me it's a long story. Back to job hunting. Guess the bright side is I get to get out and ride more.

    Heck yeah. Make the best of it. You'll find work soon enough. Just don't break any expensive parts...or bones!

    Thanks guys. Things are looking better today.

    Just don't break any expensive parts...or bones!
    No worries about that. The parts on my bike are over 20 years old.

    How about we talk about more positive things? You seem to like to rub people's noses in their mistakes.

    Not when that record is based on something negative. Feels like talking to a brick wall.

    Sorry to hear about the bad luck.
    How long have you been there and what was their reasoning?
    Just stick it in granny and start grinding.

    I was there since February. I was even promoted. Their reasoning was that I missed a few things in a couple of orders in a rush resulting in a customer complaint. My first ever complaint. Not logical, but go figure.

    File a grievance. Or perhaps there is more to the story. Why would they want rid of you?

    It's not logical for them to fire you making at least two errors? I think it depends on what your job is and what's the background but that's really not our business. If I were you, I would just keep this private. My cousin is a surgeon and I'm pretty sure he gets canned if he makes one error.

    Anyhow, I'm very sorry you lost your job and its great that you have a positive outlook about this. Good luck, Kona!
