I’m not sure if I’ve been fired

by Evil HR Lady on November 28, 2012

Dear Evil HR Lady,
I was fired over the phone for what my supervisor is calling “an untruthful absence” for which I used vacation days for.

They are now emailing me demanding that I come into the office at my scheduled start time and report to our General Manager once there.

I don’t feel it necessary as I have already been told that it is in my best interest to not go back to the office and that I was fired. Now they are telling me something different.

Wait, the original letter writer said they were fired for an ‘untruthful absence’ for a day they used VACATION TIME for, and you’re telling them to apologize??? WHY????

It’s none of the employer’s business WHAT the person does while on vacation. While I wouldn’t act out or anything like that, if I were fired simply because the employer didn’t *like* what I did on my vacation day, I would damn sure not be apologizing for anything.
