Ugh.

I told my supervisor last Friday that I needed to cut my schedule back four hours per week to accomodate an unforseen family business issue. Today, I no longer have a job. Guess I'll have lots of time to focus on that family business issue. I also think I must be the only stupid person in the world who would finish out the work day after being fired first thing in the morning because they were shorthanded. I wish I had had the courage to not stammer or fight tears, and just say "If that is the way it must be" and walk out the door. There is so much more to this, but ultimately I know that I did nothing wrong. My family comes first, and I told my boss this way back when he hired me the first time. Still--I think there is a hole in me somewhere, because this hurts badly.

I'm so sorry...it's awful that people are penalized for being responsible to their family. They've made a big mistake to let you go like that.

Wow, I feel awful for you. :( It's terrible when we put our families first and get punished for it- employers need to understand that things happen and they can't always be helped. Hang in there- I'm so sorry. :(
