So today I went to work as usual. I thought my day was going just fine....then I got hit by a bus...or so it seemed.
Last week my supervisor was on vacation, and another person was left in charge. On Tuesday she mentioned that people needed to leave early if it stayed slow like it was. I mentioned "I'd go home", which she replied "no, you can't leave, you're one of the closers" It wasn't an issue. I went back to working, then got really sick, nauseous and vomiting. I asked one of the girls there if they could stay an hour extra and close for me, and she said she could, and she didn't have any plans at all that night. I let the other tech know I would be leaving, and headed home, barf bag in hand.
Today my boss pulls me into her office, and I'm suspended for insubordination because they are saying that I asked to leave, was told no, then I waited until the "in charge" person left and decided to also leave. They say I should have stayed there until I called someone in charge to let them know. I guess I should have stayed and threw up while making phone calls.
This leaves me suspended without pay until human resources reviews things. They get to decide whether or not I have a job to come back to. I don't know how long this could take, days, a week? Basically I was told to go home and they would call me. I'm terrified of losing my job, and insurance, and the job market as it is will make it difficult to find a new job.
I appreciate everyone's support here, and I just needed to vent.
