Let me just give you all a rundown....

I have worked for this place for almost 5 years. During that time, I have been shuffled around, from 1st shift to 3rd shift and all in between. I have worked holidays, weekends, any time that was asked of me. I have been shuffled around from client to client, laid off then hired back, taken a RETROACTIVE PAYCUT, and then finally worked my way up to what I feel is a respectable pay. I have never had any attendance issues or any issues period. I now take on more responsibilities than most people ABOVE me.. all to have it VANISH because of 1 phonecall.

Basically, one associate of mine called me on a RECORDED LINE (which its random, so we have no way of knowing what is recorded and what is not) to shoot the breeze. This is a line RESERVED for associates who have questions about account they are working on. Well, as it happened, he wanted to chitchat and we got recorded. It was basically him chatting and me answering. And it went on for like 10 minutes...

Now this particualr guy has done this before, and I always at some point tell him "we need to get off the phone" or "we shouldn't be doing this." Why oh why didn't I SAY that on this day?

So now, the operations manager , who is a notorious hard-***** has been alerted to this, and basiocally I could lose my job for poor conduct.... And what about the other guy? Probably nothing....

This sucks so much ##### ya'll don't even know. Never mind that BF barely has a stable job right now (or ever) - I basically have been supporting myself. I have my own home and car and bills, which I have had no problem paying b/c I make such good money.... well, even if I just get demoted, that's gonna change everything.

And nevermind that I'm pregnant, AND high risk with cerclage and treatment for PTL.... like anyone is gonna hire me - I worked so hard toget where Iam now, just got my FMLA approved, which most places you have to work there a year before getting... luckily I have medicaid along with my regular insurance...

THe funny thing is, I HATE this job.... I almost don't care if I have to leave. It's the being FIRED thing that doesn't sit well.

So I'm told by my supervisor to be prepared for this BIG MEETING with the ops manager on Monday - humble pie, basically. I'm afraid I'll just snap. This pregnancy hasn't exactly been easy for me, wth my son dying only 6 months ago because of IC and PTL, and now a new baby - everything is just so uncertain... every pain, every pull or tug has me speeddialing the doctors office in hysteria... he11,I probably don't need to work in this state of mind anyways....

you sound a lot like me earlier this week when I begged to work half days cause I'm not well and not to be fired ... it was the being fired part that was bothering me most of all cause I've just never been and didnt want it to happen.

Firstly ... I mean ... has there been any warning letters or anything to you about the phone call? if you are a permanent worker then you have your rights to have warnings in writing before just being fired off the bat.

Being pregnant and unemployed is darn scary and nail biting ...

I dont know what to say to make you feel better ... I just want you to know I am here if you do need someone to talk to ... I may not know the right things to say but I can listen so pm me anytime.
