    Alright, I am totally crushed right now, and I'm having trouble getting over it. I left work on Friday thinking I had a nice secure job, that all my paid vacations would be there when we go get married, and that most importantly, I was doing a good job. I had no reason to think otherwise. Apparently my boss was freaking out about business and is deciding it's my fault that it's not good right now! Geez, I suppose IndyMac customers can blame me too! I've worked for these ppl. for 6 years, and now my boss actually tried to say that I must be distracted b/c I'm planning a wedding!!! Instead of searching for a WC, i'm searching for a new job (I still have a job "for now," but I've lost my store "for now")... I'm the first to admit when I make a mistake, but I don't think I deserve this. On top of everything, I don't want to go ahead w/ wedding plans b/c I'm afraid I'll have no income soon! This truly sucks...

      That really stinks! Hopefully, you will be able to find a new job soon as it doesn't sound like a great work environment to be in.

      you ought to go to your corporate HR immediately and tell them you feel discriminated against because youre planning a wedding and your boss gave that as reason for your termination - if you can prove that you were not slacking you might be able to get something out of it

          I'm sorry! What a a-hole you boss is being! Keep your head up, everything happens for a reason so there must be something better ahead of you!

                    I am sorry to hear about your troubles. I completely understand what you are going through right now. My FI is unemployeed and has had no luck with finding a job in this job market, and my father just got laid off from his job!!! Our wedding plans are on hold right now until we can find a way to pay for it.
