Why Geggy got canned.

Yall just needa fill in the blanks, kinda like a mad lib or something shit idk
Mar 4th, 2008 11:36 PM
Girl Drink Drunk Hey Geggy, have you got a conspiracy theory about you being canned?
Mar 1st, 2008 05:35 PM
Fat_Hippo Yeah, you could set up a whole black market for stolen office supplies. That'll teach 'em to fire your ass!
Feb 27th, 2008 07:31 PM
Zbu Manowar I bet if you go in after hours and wheel out a few copiers, nobody will care.
Feb 25th, 2008 02:19 PM
Fat_Hippo Are you talking to me, PUNK!?

And if so: What does being a kleptomanic ass have to do with my ability to find a home?
Feb 25th, 2008 12:26 PM
Ninjavenom good luck getting a home you filthy homosexual!
Feb 19th, 2008 11:32 AM
Fat_Hippo You can do more than steal JUST computer parts! Take all the office supplies you can get your hands on, and not just from your own office. If you're walking in a corridor and see an empty office, no co-workers in site, then just let a stapler quietly slip in to your pocket. Well, that might be a bit conspicious, but pencils, pens, paper, it's all good. AND it's free. Seriously, it'll be awesome. And if you're caught, just shrug. What are they gonna do, FIRE YOU!?

thebiggameover at least they gave you warning. i lost my job last month. walked in to work, was told to go to a meeting, and they told all of us "hey everybody! today is your last day! enjoy not having a job!" i think they did that to make sure nobody would show up the next day with a gun...

anyways, my servrance is allmost used up, so i think im gonna just go back to pizza driving....
Feb 17th, 2008 09:05 PM
Zbu Manowar Then my only other advice is just starting doing weird things at work like taking home a few parts of the office computers to see if you can build your own, and on your final day take a huge dump and put it in an abandoned drawer that's close to a heat source.

Oh, and wear Hawaiian shirts and refer to everybody as 'my baby' or 'supercunt.'

It works.

I'm not the kind who would go through all the legal troubles, it's too much of a hassle. like my other co-workers who will also be laid off suggested, let it ride out and see what happens, i'm probably just being paranoid (shut the fuck up drunk girl). but it is a complex situation, if i ask him again and he says no, i could face termination if i present my arguement that its against the law if he withholds the contracts from me. but then that is what lawyers are for. read beginning of the paragraph again.

2) Pretty much stop working very hard. Since you're out the door, why bust your ass?

Seriously, the fact that they're downsizing their business and not including you is a sign that they're expecting you to keep working your hardest to make their business run and then drop you like a bad habit. You already know when you're going to be let go. The only difference is if you're going to work as hard for them as you were or if you're just going to ride out the next three and a half months looking for another job. Fuck 'em. In this world, you look out for yourself. And if a business is stupid enough to expect you to bust your ass for them when they're pushing you towards the door, don't bother.
way ahead of you.

Girl Drink Drunk Hey, at least now you can make more conspiracy theory threads...........which actually might be a bad thing.....
Feb 4th, 2008 07:37 AM
Geggy no union

looks like i'm going have to wait another week to ask for a copy of the contract...the GM is a huge patriots fan.
Feb 3rd, 2008 04:17 AM
Fatacula Try to look on the bright side, at least your getting laid....anywho are you union? If so I would get knocking on the stuarts door.

Dr. Octogonopus I got screwed over by my last boss when after 4 months of working there, he all of a sudden put me all alone, in charge of a daycamp for thirty children. Seeming as children suck, I quit. Dirty bastard.....

dirtyxblondexdame I got laid off after 3 years at my last job, 3 years of building a brand new account, being the customer service manager, working on 2 accounts when my regular one was stable and another new one needed help.............i got laid off before people who had been there only a few months, because i had the highest hourly salary. so, i started interviewing and accepted a job (where i am now) starting the Monday after my last day at my old job.

So, a week before my layoff date the office manager calls me into her office -- i think i'm going to get fired (so that they wouldn't have to pay me my unused vacation and sick time, which was part of the severance package) -- but instead, she asks me if i would consider staying. I asked her if they would be giving a pay increase in return, and she said no. so, i said buh-bye.

that last paycheck was super sweet but those fuckers deserved what they got -- bankrupt with no clients after they mishandled account after account.

MLE Man, them not giving you a copy and refusing is serious business. That's not just missing something, that's just flat out refusal and totally sue-able. Goddamn, I would be pissed if I were you.

all i know and care is that i'm getting a temproray full healthcare coverage for at least 6 months and i could extend it to longer period of time only if i have a good reason ie. poor health, over 50 y/o. i didnt ask for any more details but i think i should and will. this is good for me to have healthcare because i plan to take a whole month of june off and go nuts on my mountain bike which i wouldnt normally do if i didnt have healthcare ha.

I think it should be easier for me now to ask for a copy of the contract because the general manager reads i-mockery.com through my work computer and this thread is probably freaking him out if things dont pan out, then glowbelly can be my lawyer
Jan 23rd, 2008 11:43 AM
AChimp You should have received a copy of the contract when you were signing it. There's supposed to be one copy for you and one copy for them. Either way, you're entitled to see your contract.
Jan 22nd, 2008 11:02 PM
Cosmo Electrolux see if you can get Spiritwise to lick my taint....

Colonel Flagg What kind of severance package are you getting? Typically it's 1 week for every year of service. Cobra benefits are generally standard fare (at least that's the way it was when I was laid off) so no big whoop there. Plus, I'd think you're entitled to unemployment regardless, since you will be laid off. As for getting royally screwed, Geggy, only you can answer that one:

1. Company is growing
2. Branch is closing
3. You're not being offered another job

Draw your own conclusions. At least, I'd ask again to see a copy of that contract.
Jan 22nd, 2008 06:21 PM
Tadao It is against the law to not be given a copy upon request. Do what you will with that info.
