I got fired...

From my latest job. The really good one that paid pretty well. Yeah, that one.

I really don't know why. It was quite a shock to be honest. I thought I was doing so well.

Apparently, the doctor I was working for did not like the way I handled patients problems. Which is bull because I thought I handled them greatly and to the best of my ability. I felt like I was being shot down. She just came up to me and said we are gonna have to let you go because the way you are handling patients is becoming a problem. Which I don't understand because I am great with patients. I can talk to them personally and professionally and I was leading in sales last month which requires a lot od personification with the customers so why am I in this situation?

What did I do to have this happen to me?

By the way, I haven't been to work in over 4 days, and then on top of that we have a fill in Doctor that usually comes in so I didn't work for the MAIN doctor for a whole week. So how in that weeks amount of time did I mess things up so that I would get fired right when I walked into the door?

Hmm... I just don't understand.

Indirectly yes, I was warned during our EMPLOYEE EVALUATIONS. I had two in the three months I worked there and talked with the doctor about it and had improved on the second from the first evaluation. But I was never written up or told I was going to be let go anytime soon. She told me she was going to give me an an extra month to keep improving minor details in my work ethic. But then fired me the next week after not working for four days. And hadn't worked under her supervision for a week.

And I absolutely did my hardest, I observed the way I talked to patients and handled them. I took the time to assess the situation and break it down and find the problem and address it as best as I could.

I need to look up at life's challenges. I'm sure I will overcome this as long as I am faithful and with a positive attitude.


  1. Sorry to hear about your job loss. I wish you could find out exactly what she didn't like. I hate mysteries. I hope you can find another job soon, hopefully a better one.

  2. Oh so sorry :( *tapping your shoulder*

  3. That is so disappointing! I'm so sorry to hear this!

  4. Dude, sorry to hear that. Hope you find a better job or better yet, she hires you back. lol. Just trying to cheer you up. hehe. What's your work then? Are some sort of a nurse?

    I'm a new follower to this blog. Seems interesting. :)

  5. Thank you all for your support. I applied for unemployment! Hopefully I will get it while I am still teaching on the side, and I'll have more income coming in. It's a very hard time for us now but I'm sure we will get through it sometime.

    @Xtian I was an Optometric Technician.
