    Ok so after the big hit yesterday of not being released by the doc to go back to work and then work deciding to fire me because of it.. Blah Blah Blah.......

    Fed ex knocked on my door..... then the mail lady knocked on my door... Woooo Hooooo so much for being depressed...
    A new toy that I ordered before I lost my job. :wink:
    ( Think I should send it back or keep it?)

    Then my sis from Iowa sent me a care package. (Good timing mailing out that package sis!)
    So now this evening I will set down and read over my instructions for my new toy and eat my Sterzings chips and dip... I will worry about being depressed tomorrow. lol..

    Today is a wonderful day for you for sure! What wonderful "gifts" you got. I don't think you should send the Go back at all, I think you need to use it. Maybe you can make things to sell and that can help you out financially.

    We can tell what your supper is tonight! :lol:

    Too bad about your job, that happened to me too, cause I wasn't able to the work anymore, but things worked out for the best, got a much better job, worked for myself before I retired. Collect unemployment if you can, play with your new toy, sell some appliques on ebay, things will get better.

    Rachel, this is my thought exactly, but would you want to work for a company that treated you like that?

    I would contact the labor board in my state.

    KEEP IT!!! You deserve it and it can keep you busy so you don't get depressed. See what you can make with your time off. :)

    That is a nice surprise to cheer you up! ON the other hand..it is illegal to fire you because you were not released to return to work.

    keep it,you can always cut out shapes and sell them here to make money until you find a new job...theres more than one way to make money.........maybe you will make so much you will be able to work from home and won't need to get another job. People hate to cut out small appliques...at least I do. It's worth a try.....right?

    Sorry to hear about the companies lost. I think you need to check into this, because half of us would be without a job. Keep your cutter and be happy. Thanks to your sis she has my mouth watering. I have not had Sterzings chips and dip for some years now. I know that they brought joy to your eyes and tummy. Blessings sent your way.

    I am sure they can't fire you for that reason, but they will make another excuse to fire you. So sad employers do that to people. Anyways I sure hope you feel better and I'd KEEP it. Have fun playing with your new toy. :)

    Keep it, especially if it is already paid for. Then just enjoy quilting. Avoid the depression. I was laid off two years ago now, and it turned out to be a blessing. So as mama always said "this to shall pass".

    I think you need to check with your state's employment laws. Firing you may not be legal.

    Sorry about your job but I know what you are talking about. My husband got sick I put in for loa to take care of him was told my loa was ok then got a call from the co that I was let go because of not showing up for work. Then turned down for unemployment because they said I quit. Im appealing the decision. Have to admit Im much happier not working for a large retail co. Good luck you will be much happier sewing.

    Sorry about the job! I hope you can find a new one as soon as you are better. If possible, keep the Go Baby. It will give you something to work on while home. Your sister is an angel to send you a care package. I don't know how big your fabric stash is, but now is a good time to use it, with your new toy!

    This is true, they cant fire you because your DR. would not release you to go back! I have a Human Resource degree, Im telling you the truth. Call the HR department, explain what happened, Im sure they will take care of it for you!
    And no, do not send it back! Keep it & have some fun!
