The preachers wife fired me

I was between jobs and I went to work for a company where as luck would have it our minister's wife worked in HR.

After six weeks she called me into the office and after telling me that I was making too many mistakes she fired me. I was flabbergasted as I thought I was doing better. She told me that she had been getting calls from other workers and that I had to go.

Ok out the door I walked. This was on a Tuesday.

At the church where her husband preached, I had done many things that I was often told I did well. In other words, they counted on me.

Not anymore they didn't. I started attending the church next door and I offered my services to them. OK, a few Sundays pass and no word from the church. Then the phone calls started. The minister asked why I had not been to church and why had I stopped helping them.

My reply was that I quit their church and was going elsewhere. I told the minister to ask his wife why they would never see me there again and it must have worked. He never called again.

Now they have to find someone else to do their picking up and delivering for them.

  • You could have told him you left because you felt guilty for letting his wife seduce you.

  • Don't hang on it. Sometimes people just need a change.

    I would say never think your indespensable. I have been involved in community and church groups and I've seen those people who think they are indespensable. You also get people believe that certain people are indespensable. The end result is that these people end up as little demi gods.

  • Let me get this straight, You think that because you did things for your church that the pastor's wife should have kept you on at a job where you were preforming poorly? And now that your feelings got hurt you left that church and joined another one just to hurt them? Sorry but that sounds extremely childish, grow up and except your weaknesses and along strengths.

  • Ha, ha, she fired herself from her church.
