Take it off your chest...
Read Rules

Today I lost my job; I screwed up but before you go ha you definitely deserve it, please hear my story. My family has many children and has been struggling to cope financially for years and I myself have a crippling student loan on my back after graduating this year, that keeps me awake with fear most nights. So when I got a offer for a contracted month long job offering me the chance to work at a call center for a good wage I took it and was grateful. I woke up early every morning to go to work, doing 12 hours shifts because I desperately needed the money and would literally come home eat, fall asleep then go back to work. Then after 2 weeks I heard the bosses have a conversation that only the callers with the most positive feedback would be kept for the entirety of the month. So completely panicking, I falsified a few of my results and gave myself good feedback for the telephone surveys I was doing. My bosses found out today and fired me, I'm ashamed and at rock bottom. Of course I can't escape blame, please realize that when you're working 12 hours a day everyday and you can barely afford to eat and you're too worried to sleep and you think you're going to lose your job you do stupid stuff. I just needed to get this off my chest,

  • I hope things will pick up for you soon!

  • It's understandable to have panicked. I would have been inclined to do the same thing if I was in your shoes. Learn from this and move on though, don't beat yourself up over it (difficult, I know. Easier said than done, I know. But not impossible.)
