I'm sorry this happened to you. Gotta love the "word of mouth" policy a lot of these companies use. I will be getting fired as well, as I requested time off to go see my grandmother - it's basically her last Christmas before she dies - and it is a nine hour road trip for me. I requested off five days so I could go spend time with her and stuff but they scheduled me anyways. I'm obviously going, my grandmother and I are quite close and I don't want to regret not spending time with her. Oh well.
