Hi there. The names Chance Sharpe and I´m 23 years old and living in Cincinnati Ohio. I´m not the type of person to reach out for assistance like this. I absolutely hate depending on someone else. I thought I could handle what I have been dealing with on my own but times have gotten hard and the only thing i have left right now is an apartment I rent in Cincinnati. As of tomorrow, that will be old news as well.
At one point i had things covered. I was doing well. Bills were getting paid and things were smooth flowing. I felt virtually worry free. Until my job at the time decided to force some company changes upon its employees that i did not like. I was informed on another typical work day that the current shift I was working on was being moved from 2nd to 3rd shift. At the time my home life made this difficult for me to feasibly adhere to but that meant nothing to leadership in a warehouse environment. They have a real ¨Jump on board, or fall in the water¨ outlook on things when it comes to stuff like that. I was also informed that they would be removing my shift differential as soon as the switch took place. After 2 almost 3 years i was appalled. From that point lunches were shortened, procedures that i had put in place to help the company were changed, mandatory overtime skyrocketed and I eventually quit due to many factors. I wish i hadn´t but I did.
Some time went by and I found a place for me to work. Had an interview scheduled and was moving in the right direction. Until August 22nd 2016 (one day before my orientation). Two armed men swindled their way into my apartment and after an attempted snatch and grab followed by a fight with me, they took off empty handed. I was shot 3 times and rushed to U.C. Cincinnati in critical condition. My femoral artery in my left leg was ruptured and my right forearm was severely broken from gunshots.
From this point it has gone collectively downhill. To the point where now I have no vehicle due to it being broke down in another part of town beyond my ability of repairing. I have trouble finding work due to medical complications. No work = No paid bills. Now it´s even more difficult to find work because of the time period i was unemployed due to medical restrictions and since my most recent job fired me.
Long story short it was not something I did. (I´ll be vague and spare details and names because its pointless to try and speak badly of another company.) Coworkers that were there the day of the incident will confirm that i didn´t do anything that should entail termination. Unfortunately the manager at this facility decided that he should pick sides with seniority as oppose to some young kid rather than hearing both sides of the story and figure out what actually happened. He heard one side, assumed it was the truth, and wouldn´t listen to the other. Next thing you know…¨Your Fired.¨ Reasoning he gave me was ¨During your first 90 days I can fire you for any or no reason regardless of what you say did or didn´t happen.¨ I bit my tongue got my things and vacated the premises.
Hence why I´m about to lose my place. I have a job interview and possibly could start working tomorrow morning but I need to get some cash together to pay my landlord or I´m going to have a job but no place to live. I am out of resources. Family can´t help me. Friends have all showed me there true colors by leaving me behind in the worst possible moment. Kind of funny how those people just disappeared as soon as my vehicle was no longer available for me to drive them anywhere in.
Please let me know if you can help me in any way shape or form I have no one left i can ask for assistance. Tomorrow morning is my deadline to have my rent paid and up to date or vacate. From the time I spent in the hospital and the recovery period i spent at home in bandages, i have backed rent i still need to pay. Over $2,000 worth. I´m not asking for all of it to get paid. Every bit helps
Thanks for your time
Sincerely, Chance D
