    Morning fellas, so I was caught off guard yesterday as I was driving home from work, I was called placed on a conference call and told I wasn't a cultural fit and let go...after working my ass off this month. This is first time in my life I've been fired hell I've never been written up and still haven't. This one has no merit though I never got an answer as to what that meant nor was I ever given any kind of write up and my numbers are highest in the company. All they said was they hear rumors and team members are scared for their jobs daily that I treat them badly but no proof of said statements. I've also had multiple team members reach out to me very upset and apparently my replacement is being introduced on Monday so they had a guy in the works so its not that I'm not a fit its they have a friend or family member they want in there. My numbers last year were 1mil increase in sales and $550K in revenue and this year we are already up $40K in revenue so obviously being a "winner" isn't a cultural fit.

    I'm not usually an emotional type of guy but this morning I woke up to phone calls and messages from my team members thanking me for always treating them like family and for how much that I supported and taught them. Many called me so far throughout the morning voicing displeasure that I'm no longer their leader and that I'm forever in their hearts. On in particular was an island team that said you always treated us like family not like islanders or black people and that I was always there to guide, help, and support them at the drop of a dime. It really touched me and I may need to up my AI lol.

    Everything happens for a reason and on to the next venture I suppose.

    Good morning cuz.
    Some companies just canít handle good leaders. They are used to having bosses and when a leader steps up they donít know how to deal with that type of culture. The type that increases KPIís without sacrificing integrity and ethics. You know what you did for that company and itís unfortunate that they choose not to recognize it.
    Theyíre in the rear view now, next opportunity awaits.

    I agree with Push. It seems like they were intimidated by your leadership abilities. The people calling you to say thank you is proof enough. Shit happens for a reason, brother. At least you didnít waste several years more to that company. Sounds like you left a good impression with a few folks...maybe even taught them something. Iíd take that as a win!

    Agreed, I didnt get mad and go off like they expected just asked for proof. I got nothing of course and was told Iíll be paid severance but havenít seen what that looks like yet. They seem a bit prone to law suits as thereís an ex regional manager suing them now. Iím also the 5th one in the past 2.5 years so that tells a story. There backstory is super fucked up you wouldnít believe me unless you read that shit yourself in new clips.

    Iím also gonna talk to a lawyer and get any and all paperwork looked at before I sign anything. In the meantime I get my damn life back!! I didnít realize how much Iíd been working. Iíve not even been able to post here.

    Oh and Iím still working on buying that other business. Just waiting on some figures to come back. I saved 80% of my pay while I worked here as it never felt like a forever kinda place so Iím good either way.

    Nah itís not too soon fuck it lol it is what it is. We will get through this. All I can say about the situation is Karmas a bitch and I canít wait for their train to derail because that place is a legit train wreck.

    Life is short so we are just gonna live it up while we can!

    Lots of damn jokes in here today maybe Iíll just open a comedy club and hire yíall

    Nah Iím good this place was and is fucked. Iíve got a friend in there and they hired a thief that I refused to hire as my replacement. So company culture fit thing makes more sense cause I donít steal lol.

    Also heard my teams in the islands are super pissed about this and are voicing it. US team not hearing much but 6 of 8 shops for sure have my back. Just in case I need to go to court.

    Seems like all the fuckery and shade you found when you started makes sense now, huh? Corruption runs rampant in the corporate world!

    Been hitting the gym regular and the wife if off the rest of this week so the plan is to just chill. I think I'm taking the next month to just unwind and decompress before even attempting to get back out there. I have an old college offering me $75K in a consulting role to help with a shop in Virginia but lots of travel and living in hotels for god knows how long and being away like that is never good for your home life.

    That sounds like a great idea. Clear your mind and reset. Get them skis out!
    Traveling sure is hard on the home life. I wonít do it unless I have to. It would have to be quite a bit more than 75k, too.

    Better have that house clean and supper ready or mama gonna be pissed! LMAO. Enjoy the break.
