Strangest Reason for Getting Laid Off?

Years ago, I worked for law firms in NY.  I started working for this one particular law firm that was close to home.  One day in the middle of winter. One of the senior partners took me into his office and said to me.  “We need to change your hours and in the same breath he said to me, and if you don’t make the change in hours we are going to lay you off.  I was flabergasted.  In the next breath he said he wanted my resignation (I’ll bet because he didn’t want to pay unemployment)  It was the weirdest day.  I was too young or gullible or something, but come to find out he wanted to hire his girlfriend as a legal assistant.  I was good at what I did.  I had great reviews up till that day.

Talk about bad timing.

More to come tomorrow… and there is MUCH more!
