So, kids, how was your Wednesday? Mine? Oh, I got fired.

Allegedly, I was "terminated" for violating TPC's internet usage policy - i.e., you're not supposed to use the 'net for anything other than work purposes. And I did. However, if that's the actual reason I was fired, why was I the only one, and not, say, 3/4 of my (former) coworkers? [Not that I want them to be fired, mind you, I'm just making a point here.] It was done by the TPC President and director of HR, very (very) coolly. There was no warning, no option; the guillotine simply came down upon my neck. The more I think about it, the more I'm certain that there's some other reason I was "terminated" (and no, I did NOT look at porn at work, so don't even go there!). For pete's sake, my yearly evaluation was just 7 weeks ago - and I got (what equals) all "good"s and "very good"s. Of course, I'll never know what the reason(ing) behind my "termination" is, as Virginia's a "Right to Work" state - which means you can be fired anytime for any (or no) reason, period.

And you know what? Fuck 'em. FUCK THE PLANNING COUNCIL. I'll find another, better job.

But right now, I'm still in shock. Right now, I'm unemployed. Shit.

Anyone got a job? I'm a hard worker, a quick learner, and friendly. :)
