Re: “Getting the Ax

I hope Y'all don't mind if I blog W/ya. To the few who said this treatment is everywhere is absolutely correct; and the biggest offender is the Federal Gov't.
They'll use trumped up charges, scapegoats as well as out and out lies by those goaded to do the bidding of hirer ups as well as those you work side by side with. It appears to be sanctioned by those in authority. I never once got a bad performance evaluation in the almost 24 yrs. at the same hospital. Granted I only got perhaps four (4) performance awards because I am out spoken, as I was raised to do by the very people that who worked hard all their lives for the same company out of loyalty due to the respect, that's no longer given to the work forces. The Fed. Gov't. touts DIVERSITY, yet, does not practice it. An EVIL Woman ( woman is not the right word ) Adult Bully ( yeah that's right ) had throughly pissed off a Wife of a PT. When the wife asked for her name, She gave my name. I got suspended W/O pay for that. The fourth supervisor we had during my tenure there, placed his ridiculous secretary in our break room ( she had nothing to do w/ our department and should have never been there ) took offense when ( in our break room where we should be able to let off steam ) I, to my self, called a DR. a ( "fricken idiot ) for ordering a procedure that could very well cause harm , not to mention
the excessive extra amount of pain to the PT. A few days latter verbally and physically She attaced me in MY bearkroom. She stuck her index finger right in my face and touched the tip of my nose, and when I said get your finger out of my face, she said, "like a second grader" " make me ". Needless to say, I got out of there and believe it or not I don't remember how. Soon after, I get called ito to the supervisors office for physically attacking her. when I didn't touch her. She claimed I had scrached her. Well if you knew me and looked at my nails, NO WAY I could do that. What they did't know is, I followed her a bit after she left our dept. and I saw her scratch herself. This kind of stuff is, as I said sanctioned by the GOV'T. to get rid of people. So they were going to fire me. I was fightin tooth and nail. I even talked to the JUDGE who was going to preside over the case and she told me to my face that I had valid issues. Something must have been said as a short time latter I was given the option to retire. Couldn't loose benefits and my pittance of a retirement. But in order to do this I had to sign a disclosure
statement. Stuck " ROCK / HARD PLACE ".
Sorry about goin on and on. I admire y'all and what you are doing. I too am finding
it diffucult to find a place to shop, ad now Target is another one.
