My husband came home yesterday without a job.
Not something a pregnant mom really wants to deal with.
This year was supposed to be better than last year. So far it isn’t.
No severence, no savings.
WARNING BIG HUGE ANGRY VENT TO FOLLOW
To the people who hired my husband under less than honest pretenses.
When you hire a man you hire his family. We moved from Georgia to Indiana to take this job. Yes, we were in need of a job because unfortunately he had been working for very similar people in Georgia and lost that job. That however does not give you the right to not be clear on who my husband would be working with and that this particular person is a large thorn in the side for several people at the company. It is also dishonest to not let it be known that no matter how much of a jerk this guy is he isn’t going to lose his job because he is worshiped by the dishonest owner of the company. It also would have been a good idea for you to share that you have hired 4 people in the last two years for this position and that the guy before my husband only lasted 45 days before he quit because of the guy that can do no wrong. Knowing things likes this lets us make a complete decision in accepting or declining a job. Then if we take it knowing the challenge we can at least be prepared that it might not work out.
We have settled ourselves into a pretty nice little town. My kids are involved in homeschooling things here. They are developing friendships. We were gifted with a family pass to the children’s museum. Our 9yo is signed up for soccer and our 12 yo was hoping to play volleyball this season.
Now we don’t know if we are going to get to stay. Not that you care because you are too busy going on trips with the two guys that worked to get my husband fired. Or you are too busy having your HR guy play up a kid out college by taking him to a professional hockey game and having him stay in a fancy suite in a hotel in Chicago in hopes of hiring him as the new designer of the landscape design department. Forget that you told my dh that you were looking to move him to that position because while my husband doesn’t have a degree, he is a talented designer that has worked all levels of the landscape industry so has far more experience than a kid coming out of college. Oh but that’s right Jorry doesn’t have a piece of paper saying that he knows what he is doing and he doesn’t fit in with those that send their kids skiing to different places, or he doesn’t golf on the weekends or any number of other things that you and your two buddies do.
To the guy that knew my husband was going to lose his job last month:
When my husband asked you outright you tiptoed around the answer and spouted some stuff about “God taking care of things no matter what happens.” Easy for you to say,your wife is a doctor!! YOU HAVE NO CLUE!! You arrogant jerk, take your God talk somewhere else because it isn’t flying here.
Oh and yes the owner is a professed Christian. Truly, as a Christian myself I would really rather you not share those things in your business. Inevitably you kill your witness and damage things for the rest of us. I know you aren’t losing sleep over our situation and that you really don’t care what kind of stress you have placed not only on my husband but myself and my older girls as well. They know what it is to worry about where we are going to live and weather or not there is going to be money to eat and keep the heat on. They shouldn’t but because of JERKS like you they do. Yep, I hate your guts.
Yes, I am in a low place, I can’t see the forest for the trees. After having my husband laid off the Friday after I had a baby, then again 5months later and now again after 8months I’m really not sure that God gives a flying flip about where we are.
