so it seems that I'm fired? from wal-marts.
I took Jo to work with me cause she's spending the night tonight. I didn't think anyone would really care as long as I got my work done. Big Mistake.
At work, I informed one of the manager girls named Dawn that I needed off for this friday, saturday, and sunday as I'm going to New York then for an early christmas present. She hemmed and hawed and finally said that I would hav to call another manager because she "can't do it".
So when I get to my toy section, lo and behold everything is being moved. Half my toys are at one end of the store, some are in the middle of the store, and the others are at the other end of the store. Needless to say it was all a giant mess! Me trying to be the good little walmart drone I am, tried to zone up a bit and help people. My friend was helping me zone a bit and when I would help people, she would wander off to look at things.
I go and get my returns, go back to toys, and find a whole bunch of gameboy games that were stolen. I return them to the electronics and give them to the guy working there and then I try to ask him a question but he hurried off. My friend goes to look at games and I stood by the guys counter, waiting to ask him about a dvd box set my friend wanted to know if we have.
Then Dawn shows up at my elbow. She asks what I'm doing. I explain to her and she then asks if I have anything in toys that the department manager left for me to do. I've been working almost 3 months and have only met the woman twice. My department manager works overnights. No, she never leaves me things to do. Then Dawn gets to the point. She asks me if I have a friend working with me. I give a little laugh and say that I have a friend AT work with me, not working with me. Well Dawn then begins to inquisite me. Why would I think that's ok, why is my friend there, blah blah blah. She then pulls me to the side (3 steps away from the counter) and begins to ask me the same questions again. I innocently tried to reply to her, amongst her firing questions, that my friend was spending the night and no one was at my house and we (my ma and I) didn't want her home alone. Well, silly me, Dawn doesn't care about that and that's not her problem! So.. I do the only thing that I can do at this point... I burst into tears and sob, asking why every manager is jumping on me suddenly and then I say I quit.
Crying, I make my way to the back. On the way, Dawn follows me and starts telling me that I can't quit because I'm fired for acting childish and she wants my badge. Now I got pissed. So I took my badge off and threw it on the floor and kept walking into the back. Ignoring her, I went and got my purse from my locker, parading in front of about 6 people who were on break. The whole time Dawn is right there at my side, hissing how I'm acting childish and immature and that I was fired and what was wrong with me and what made me think it was bring-a-buddy to work today?
I then, still ignoring her, walk back out and begin to walk to the front. Dawn at my elbow, still going down the list. Only now she begins adding new things. I'm off the payroll now. I'm not going to get paid. I'm being escorted out of the building. Now when she said I wasn't getting paid I looked to her and said I BETTER be getting paid! Mind you, I'm still sobbing like a baby. Dawn informs that my check would be mailed. Finally I had enoughh and say to her "Keep talking because tomorrow I'm calling the manager to let him know how unprofessional you're acting." she gave this laugh and said "Honey, I AM the manager." Which is a lie. She's like.. assistant manager. Oh and when I was being escorted out, this other assistant manager I didn't know very well joined her.
Once outside I wait and after awhile my friend comes out. She informs me that they followed her around the store and then called to each other using the walmart code to inform each other of where in the store she was. Friend Jo didn't see EVERYTHING that went down because she went to the bathroom cause she knows when I get upset I hide in the bathroom. Well after a bit she came out and walked around cause she didn't know where I was. Then she bought this toy and came outside and found me.
We decided to walk down to target which is across the street. On our way we pass the lawn and garden center where we come across Ernie. Ernie is this funny old grandfatherly like man who is very nice. He always looks out for me and my ma calls him her friend. He spots me and asks what happens. I inform him of what's going down and he says I should call the manager of the store, named Bill, and then set up a meeting with him so I can tell my side of the story. Then he says if he doesn't do anything, then I should go to court! After talking a bit about it, the other manager guy named Clint shows up and asks to talk to Ernie inside and then proceeds to keep him inside and makes this other girl I don't know very well to go out and sit there. I was so upset and pissed and confused that I just walked off.
So.. give me opinions on what I should do. Please.
