OH, HAI! I JUST CONNECTED TUMBLR TO MY BLOG!
I was sacked on Friday, told that I wasn’t good enough at a job I’ve had since a week before the 2 week Christmas/New Year’s break, and for which I’ve been asking for coaching help and feedback every goddamned day.
I’ve been depressed all weekend. Didn’t see the kids. Felt like shit.
Today, I woke up really angry, and sent the following email to my former coworkers, individually, and to the department group email ( Translated from the French in Italics, bold sections…deliberate exaggeration.)
From: >THIS asshole<
Subject: A Parting Word to my Dear Colleagues
I just wanted to share a couple of words with you, as I leave:
THURSDAY YOU WERE ALL TELLING ME WHAT A PART OF THE TEAM I WAS…LAUDING ME FOR HANDLING THAT PHONE CALL…TELLING ME A FEW DAYS PRIOR THAT IT WAS LIKE I HAD ALWAYS BEEN PART OF THE TEAM.
FRIDAY, I’M HOME SICK, LYING IN BED AND IN PAIN AND WHAT HAPPENS, LISE [Redacted] PHONES ME TO TELL ME I’M OUT. SACKED BECAUSE I’M NOT SMART ENOUGH TO WORK WITH YOU
WHAT HAPPENED TO TEAMWORK? WHAT HAPPENED TO COACHING? AND I DON’T MEAN TINA SIGHING AND MOANING DOWN THE LINE WHENEVER I ASKED HER TO SHOW ME SOMETHING.
YOU ARE ALL A BUNCH OF WORTHLESS FUCKING HYPOCRITES! INSTEAD OF HELPING ME, INSTEAD OF HIGHLIGHTING MY PROBLEMS AND COACHING ME YOU KICK ME OUT OF MY ASS.
JUST TO LET YOU KNOW: MY EX-WIFE WON’T LET ME SEE THE KIDS ANYMORE BECAUSE I LOST MY JOB; I DON’T QUALIFY FOR EMPLOYMENT INSURANCE, AND I HAVE TO GO ON WELFARE – TO TRY AND SUPPORT MY PENSIONER SISTER.
YOU FUCKING BUNCH OF LOUSY SHITBAGS! YOU DID THIS TO ME! YOU FUCKED ME UP THE ASS AND LEFT ME TO DIE!
WELL I GOT NEWS FOR YOU: THE [Name of Organization taking over our Organization] TEAMS MAY BE FINE AND ALL, BUT UPPER MANAGEMENT ARE A BUNCH OF TOXIC, ABUSIVE BASTARDS! I HOPE YOU ALL LEARN THE HARD WAY JUST WHAT IT IS TO BE TREATED LIKE SHIT FOR DOING YOUR BEST AT A JOB YOU FUCKING LOVED!
FUCK YOU ALL!
I HOPE YOU ALL REMEMBER ME AS THE FAT MAN YOU FUCKING STABBED IN THE BACK.
Your brother in Christ,
