I got married 10/30/10. It was in a word, not to sound typically bride-ish, perfect. I would change nothing about the day. And then we went on our honeymoon to Cancun. Which seemed so cliche that I balked on telling people where we were going. But the resort, like the wedding, was perfect. There was nothing I experienced there that I would change. I came home after a week and a half (including the wedding) of bliss back to nyc, of course, not excited about going back to work, but I knew the daydream would end.
I walked into work on Monday.
I was fired.
Apparently they decided to let me go while I was on my honeymoon.
I cannot think of a tackier thing.
My warning to those who still work there- if they’re willing to let someone go their first day back from their honeymoon, they will let you go under equally as tacky circumstances. So best not get surgery, go on vacation or have a loved one die if you hope to keep your job there.
