I got fired today.
So, I'm get up at 6 in the morning, like I always did and get ready. Catch the bus at around 7:15 and ride it all the way down to the Courthouse and walk a little farther to the building I work at.
I only have enough money for the bus ride to work, so I figure I'll ask my coworkers for change of a five to pay for the ride back.
I get into the office and my team leader Randy pulls me to the side and tells me as of yesterday, my contract with them was terminated.
Turns out yesterday, right after I left, my bosses Todd and Randy decided I was making too many mistakes on the claims I typed up. And people thought that my yawning and continuous stretching meant I was sleeping on the job.
Randy shakes my hand and tells me it was a pleasure working with me and -
"Go to college. SERIOUSLY."
The way she said it was deserving of a punishing backhand to the face.
I left the building and after asking around, I got the spare change I needed for the bus. I'm waiting at the bus stop and end up engaging in a conversation with this lawyer smoking on her break. She tells me she's had a few Irish coffees to drink before her case and offers me a smoke.
I tell her, no thanks and about what had happened to me at work. She said she'd offered me to stay at her house in Chicago but she had to go to a case now. She gives me a a stick of gum and a dum-dum lollipop before she leaves.
I don't take candy from strangers but I do accept gum as my currency. I eat the gum and toss the lollipop into the garbage bin next to me.
I suddenly hear scratching in the can and figure it's a squirrel that got startled by the candy and I kick the can to see if it would jump out and run away. But the scratching continued so I look into the can and see a young raccoon trying to get out. IT GIVES ME THE SADDEST EYES EVER.
I decided to tip the can over and the raccoon crawls out and runs away into the neighborhood as I yell "Run Mr. Raccoon, you're free!"
My bus finally comes and drops me off near my house. I get house but because my brother and sister decided they didn't want to go to camp, I leave and go to my friend's house. I hang out for a while and -
Well, you got to hang out with your friends a lot if you don't want to be excluded from going places with them. Like the movies.
So, I left and went the library and rented some movies of my own to watch so I don't die of boredom (Or God Forbid Start Yawning Because That Means You're Asleep.) and go home. I'm on my bike and as I pull into my alley, I slide and fly off my bike.
The rocks cut little holes into my hands and I bang my shoulder on the ground. A lot of my stuff falls out of my bag, so I try and pick them all up. I get home and realize I can't find my phone. Fifteen minutes later I go downstairs and find it in the alley where I fell.
I was not meant to work in an office.
If you read this far, that means you were interested in what I got to said.
If you comment, that means you actually give a damn.
