Mine was during the summer, I got hired over the phone by a certain coffeeshop on Granville Island. It was so sketched how she hired me, but I figured she was busy. I worked the three days following the phone call, she had nothing but praise for me. It was a bit strange to just start work like that, but a job is a job. She was really happy with how I worked and offered me a permanant position for Friday and Saturday. She asked me to work the following weekend; Thursday, Friday, Sat and Sun. I told her that I can\'t work Sat or Sunday because I had prior arrangements. I had an important family gathering to go to. She said she understood, she doesn\'t know if she can ask the girl who was leaving to work for me (there is only 3 people working at this place.) I wanted to make sure it was okay with her, so I asked after my second day of work and my third. Two days after my third, she asked another employee to leave a phone message to fire me. I was so upset. I walked over to talk to her in person, get my cheque and ask her what\'s going on. As soon as I brought it up, why I was fired by another new employee and why she said it was okay that I don\'t work the two days, she rips me apart. Yells at me, telling me I\'m letting the team down, how I\'m screwing everyone else, how I\'ll be disappointed for the rest of my life, that she has two sons and I must have been raised wrong. I left there crying my eyes out because everything I tried to fight back, she pulled something else out to pin the blame on me. Sorry for the longwindedness of the story!
