Positive #WorkEthic

I felt melancholy since yesterday afternoon. I came into thinking why some people have all the bad luck or was it all about luck? A newly hired woman (co-worker) was fired yesterday right before we clocked-out. Terrible huh? I talked to her earlier that day and she clocked-in a minute late. Her eyes swollen from crying, a boyfriend broke-up with her the night before. She's only 21 with a baby out of wedlock.

As a concern co-worker, I told her to quit coming late. She said she is trying. I really don't think that she grasped how serious tardiness is. This is not her first actually. One time, she was supposed to work at 6:45 AM , she called out and told them she can't wake up that early. She will work at 8 AM. I was shocked to hear that from her. She is an employee and she can't do that! I think the management gives her ample time to prove that she is deserving for the job.
I think bad luck comes to people who made wrong decisions and for this instance, she was fired because she was tardy more than once and she did not report at work on time.
When our boss told us that the woman is not with us anymore, I was dumb-founded! My boss told me, I should not worry, he will not fire me hehehe, (what a relief), "You are too good for this job", he says. I said to my boss that I was shocked because she just broke up with the boyfriend last night ... and now, got fired! It's like adding insult to an injury and his reaction was dumbfounded!
Hey, it's not his fault! He was only doing his job! I felt so sad for this woman because she is trying her best but, as the saying goes ... "her best wasn't good enough"! I wish her well and I hope after crying and pouring out resentments, she will have a positive outlook of life. Tough huh? If this situation happens to me, I will be in rock bottom.

Moral lesson: Go to work everyday and arm yourself with a #positiveworkethic .
