I'm in between jobs right now. So I got a job at a part time tutoring center. I used to work at a different branch of this center back in college. So I figured it would be easy peasy.

Apparently not. Yesterday the lady sent me a text telling me not to come back. I asked her why. She said that I took long bathroom breaks (I was on my period and having cramps. And I wasn't even in the bathroom for a long time), I would stare instead of doing my work (I don't even know what this is supposed to mean. Looking up from grading work every once in a while to see if any kids need help is a bad Thing?), and overall just really petty things that don't make sense.

I feel like she didn't want to work with me in the first place. It's especially weird when you consider that all the other assistants do the same thing.

I pick up my check today and I get to explain and defend myself to her. If she gives me my position back, I think I'm going to refuse. I don't think this is the type of person I want to work with. I feel like next time she'll look for more asinine excuses to let me go.

Does this sound like the right thing to do?

This is a franchise operation, just like a McDonalds. They pay to use the corporate name but run the business themselves. Chances are that this one isn't doing well, and so the boss is cracking down. It is ultimately foolish, of course, because she chases away good staff.

Take the paycheck and move on.

Good point.

I've worked at two other Kumon centers and I always did really good work. She could even call and ask the people themselves. I help contribute to the positive statistics and helped the kids move onto the next level.

It's just annoying how she is letting me go for small things.

Threaten her with a wrongful termination suit if she doesn't give you good references. Definitely file for unemployment.

I haven't filed for unemployment yet since I do have quite a lot saved up. Just hoping I get a job this month.

dude, just apply. unemployment takes about 3 weeks to kick in anyway.

She might want some young dick in their to play with and you are cock blocking

If course. Why did that not occur to me.

So I went to the Kumon to pick up my paycheck and to figure out why I got fired.

So the main reason why I got fired was because I graded way too fast. A kid got a few problems wrong but I counted them right because I was grading too fast.

It was a really silly mistake on my part and I owned up to it. This mistake has happened before at the other Kumon's I worked at. It’s literally not a big deal. My bosses at those places would just make fun of me for being so dumb and tell me to pace myself while grading.

The lady at this center got really emotional with me and upset. She said that she feels like I took her for granted because she was trying to help me out and I graded a worksheet the wrong way.

I totally understand where she was coming from but at the same time, this is a really easy thing to fix. I mean, just tell me to pace myself and I would have done that.

Like just tell me what I’m doing wrong so that I can fix my mistakes and move on.

I think I did learn a lesson from this. At the same time, I really hate that this lady thinks I’m a shitty person when I know I’m not. I know that I didn’t make this mistake on purpose. It was an honest mistake but I didn’t even get a chance to defend myself because she would have gotten mad at me and would think I was accusing her of being wrong.

Maybe I’m just better off not working with people like that.

you just said you did it at your other kumon centers... maybe you shouldn't be in such a rush in the first place?

It's a common mistake though. There are a lot of times where we have a rush of work coming in and we have to get it graded as quick as we can so that we can all leave. It's a common mistake and everyone does this. She just took it very seriously.
