I have saved up for 8 years for my first house and I was able to get it last December. It took almost everything I had to buy it. I had a decent job for 3 years at a sign shop and felt really comfortable taking the risk of using all my savings to get the house and make this big step got get my nice little house. It was a goal of mine for so long.
Forward 4 months and I was fired at my old job due to a car striking the door of a company’s vehicle. I was never cited from the police and was never warned or talked to by my boss or the owner of the company (I worked at a small company). A week passes and I walk in to work to be fired. I applied for unemployment and was denied for misconduct and even after appealing the ruling I was still denied. My previous employer stated that attendance, performance, misconduct, and I wasn’t a good fit for the company. This still confuses me due to the fact we had efficiency numbers for our billed hours and I was always one of the top performers. Also how was I not a good fit for the company? It had been 3 years!
I feel very betrayed by my previous employer and do not understand why I was let go. When I first got my job there the owner of the company basically took me under her wing and helped me get additional training for management. I was really excited for this opportunity. I moved up several positions and was considered a “Rockstar” in her own words. She lead me to believe that we were a big family and that she would take care of us. So much for that I guess.
I think I should have been more aggressive with my understanding of the situation. I knew the company was not doing the best and maybe I should have figured out how bad it was. Due to my previous position I knew our numbers where barely profitable since the pandemic. Lesson learned the hard way is that everyone is expendable.
As for my current situation, lets just say it’s not exactly good. I only have $6 to my name and only have a $200 cash job to do this weekend which isn’t even close to how much I need. My current monthly bills is $1200 which even if I get lucky I’ll get to half that amount by the first of the month. I’m about $1700 behind due to my job loss and about $5000 behind total at the moment.
I’m not asking for anything extravagant. I just need some help to get me by for a little while before I get another job. I don’t want to loose my house When I get on my feet I will pass your generosity forward.
Thank you for taking the time to read my post. Any help is apricated.
