*Note the sarcasm.

My dad was fired from his job today.
He was there for 13 years.
Now our financial stability is up in the air, and I am stressed to my limit.
My grandmother, my schoolwork, my dad's job.

I mean honestly, how sad is it to lay someone off 25 days before Christmas?
That's ridiculously upsetting.

I do respect the company for keeping my dad employed for 13 years.

I was silent when my mom told me. I couldn't really think of anything to say.
Then I just started crying. I cried when I saw my dad. I've cried a lot today.
I'm tired of all of the stress, and of the rich corporations firing their middle-class workers so that they don't get a little less rich. It's happening EVERYWHERE now.
It's selfish.

I'm tired, I want to go to sleep. I want to sleep and just not wake up for 20 hours. Just pass out and wake up rejuvenated. Except that's never going to happen.
So that was my day. I wish it had been better. Now I get to fear where we'll go from here.
Sorry this post wasn't particularly "cheery". You can understand.

That is horrible news. It is pretty messed up to fire someone during this time. I hope he's able to find something else soon.

I hate such corporations and companies that do this to their workers. It is so unfair and selfish on their parts. Hopefully your dad can find a new job quickly. I also hope that your grandma is doing better, I'll pray for your family still too. :) ::hugs::

So sorry Lee! This isn't exactly the best time of the year to do that to someone. I hope he is able to find another job soon!
