Screw You Wal-Mart!

I haven't bothered to mention this until today, but as of Monday, I was out of a job again. Got called into the office right after clocking in Monday, was told I was terminated. The reason: missing too many days in the past six months. They mainly cited the total of 11 days I took off recently with the flu. As I've stated on this journal in the past, Crap-Mart wants employees to come in to work even if they are at "death's door" (probably why, during my stay at the job, three employees died!). I wasn't going to risk the flu turning into pneumonia by going into that dairy cooler!

They had me contact the doctor while I was out, to have him fax them a "leave of absence" form, but they said the doctor didn't put on the form the exact date I was going to return to work. Even a doctor can't predict something like that... and I had to go back to him TWICE before I completely got over the illness!

An old co-worker from my Burger King days, who is now an assistant manager at the local Chik-Fil-A, told me a few months ago that if things didn't work out at Crap-Mart, to come by and see her. Well, yesterday I did. Filled out a job application, which has to be approved by a district manager, but she said she will put in good words for me(and at least I'll know I'll have every Sunday off if hired there!). If I haven't heard anything by Monday... going to actively hit the old job search trail again... hitting the convenience and discount stores like "Fred's" and "Dollar General" first...

I've vowed to NEVER set as much as a toe inside of a Shit-Mart again!

UPDATE: Was looking up articles online about Shit-Mart's policies, came across THIS interesting read:"Wal-Mart's stingy sick-leave policy may contribute to swine flu's spread"...

Asshats

Eventually, I may have to eliminate, or do away with altogether, the "interactive" parts of my website. Been having to delete so many "troll" comments lately on the "Guestbook" page, I finally just deleted the code that embedded the guestbook. In the chatroom(IRC based, but a Flash client on the site), which I'm assuming are the same trolls, since they are saying basically the same things, I've banned people over and over, but since they are using a "protected host", it's kind of hard to keep them banned.

Can't delete the entire "Guestbook" page yet however, then the link in the index will be COMPLETELY "dead"... got enough dead links on my site already! Haven't had the time (or the patience) yet to start the site redesign, which needs to be done so the pages can be edited in a "wysiwyg" editor (the old Yahoo Shitbuilder code, even after trying to clean it up, still goes wonky in any other editor). May start using the default Bluehost page creator, redesigning every page from scratch, sometime in the near future, but it is VERY limited, so my site will look more amateurish than before...

Leaving this post out in the open, just so I can say to the trolls responsible... "KISS MY ASS!!! YOUR MOM NEEDS TO BAN YOUR INTERNET PRIVILEGES!!"
