Prayer Request To Find A New Job
It seems that I am in extreme need of your prayers once again.
Yesterday, I was fired from my job. I don't want to go into all the details as to why here.
Let me assure you all, that I did not do anything unethical or illegal.
I was essentially fired because I had complained in front of a couple of customers and another employee that my work hours had been cut. The owner had said he had to cut hours because business had slowed down. Then he hired three new employees after telling me that, and no one else had their hours cut. The three new employees made a total of 9 employees at a convenience store/gas station that has one cash register, 7 fuel pumps, and that is open from 5:30 AM until 10:00 PM weekdays, with shorter hours on the weekends
So I was told I was being “let go” for the talking and that I had not been “happy” there for awhile.
I suppose I should have just kept quiet and took it in stride, but alas....I am human. I tend to gripe when I feel I am not being treated fairly.
Whenever the owner went out of town, it was me who was told to do the bank deposits every day. It was me who was told to go to Sam's Club (over 20 miles away with no fuel compensation) to pick up ordered merchandise 2 or 3 times per week during the owner's week long vacations.
So much for loyalty. So much for staying even after someone ignited a pipe bomb underneath the propane tank in the early morning hours of a November Saturday.
So I guess it is good that I am gone after all. God never closes a door without leaving us an open window.
I had been there for just over 2 years, so now I need a new job. Prayers, once again are greatly needed and appreciated!
Thank you and God bless,
