Termination stories

I went to work for a company named Vulcan Materials in Atlanta Ga in their mail room. After six weeks I was called into the office and basically was told I wasn't doing the job right and that I had made a lot of mistakes. I asked "You're going to fire me"? and the mean eyed HR woman just looked at me. My manager after telling me I was a nice man said "We weren't going to use that word".

Going into the mail room to gather my things my former manager said "We're sorry". I said "you aren't as sorry as I am" On the way to the elevator the manager said "again we're sorry" I said "again you aren't as sorry as I am".

I had befriended the secretary and had had a few very pleasant conversations with her. She realized what was happening and got a horrified expression on her face. I had eye contact with her while on the elevator until the door closed and I never saw her again.

I left utterly amazed and not in a good way. I felt horrified.
