Fired by Ms. Crabbutt for bold letters

I lost my job

I'm on a BADHAP roll the last five months - it goes like this:

I landed a great job (or so I thought) beating out 30 applicants for an administrative assistant job working for a regional grant council. Worked with mayors, commissioners, senators, etc. Pretty cool, right? Well...it turns out the executive director who I call Ms. Crabbutt or Ms. ButtTree (a play on words with her last name) who traveled 50% of the time for her job and was NEVER there pulled me into the office 5 weeks after working there.

I'm a working single parent, ok? I hate it when I meet other mothers who have 'been there, done that' but still seemingly have judgement to those who still are. She tried to be 'down with me' about being a single mother. But wanted to point out that I missed 2 days already because my child was sick; daycare wouldn't take her,naturally. And asked me, "is your child the type of child that gets sick a lot?" Made a big deal about my daycare. But expecting me to come in early and stay late thus having to contact daycare. I told her, if I was a single girl with no kids, fine. But you didn't tell me in the interview I'd be coming in early for meetings and staying late. But I accomodated her anyway and never complained. Then she went on to point out every job performance flaw...leaving a box of supplies on a table, not telling a caller she was to be out of town the rest of the week when she emailed me after I got the call, not getting refreshments for a meeting when I have no company credit card to buy them, and I typed up a 6 page draft of meeting minutes for the bitch and she doesn't even go past the first page because I had put half a sentence in BOLD and wrote report instead of budget. Next thing, I'm fired. Just like that. I didn't steal, I didn't surf porn, I didn't even cuss anyone all day, I worked and showed up and tried to learn all that they did and they canned me anyway. I even went out of my way, each morning and told each one of those assholes good morning.

(Turns out the executive director is having an internal affair and is getting a divorce)...maybe...she has a problem with women...you think?

Your ex boss sounds like a complete bitch. No need to be so nasty. Working in, and reading about the corporate world makes me wish I was a farmer.
