Thank you for your response.
My boss unfortunately is a bully, yells, belittles employees in front of their peers. She is harassing, and uses it to control people. Again, it's unfortunate. I have finally realized it's time to look for another job. A coworker of mine, finally had enough and quit last week. She could not take the abuse any longer.
My boss sent me a text message tonight, stating that if I do not show up for work tomorrow, that I understand that I am quitting and it is my choice.
So to clarify, If I do not go to work tomorrow, I would not be quitting, she would be firing me? If so, how do I make that clear that I did not chose to quit?
Last clarifying question. I was told to work Saturday, because she was mad at me. I was not scheduled to work (I have a wedding party to go to), another employee was to work. She gave that employee the day off. I do not want to miss my friend's special time (I expressed this to my boss) for my crappy boss and her controlling ways.
What should I do? What would you tell a close friend of yours to do?
I appreciate your honesty, time, and help!!!! I feel confident in how to move forward now, Thank you so much! Enjoy your weekend!
