I have returned home finally.. actually that should be "home"... as it may only be so for another day or two. shake

Disney is shit to work for... especially when it is a case of being in fear of a perpetual Day 1 Lynch (i.e. termination) that may come for no reason. Sadly, that is by far from the only reason. Why, oh why, didn't I do more research into the Disney College Program before I went ??? ugh shake

I've apparently been terminated. When was I? Sometime during the con, possibly Sunday, possibly earlier. Why was I terminated? Not a fucking clue. Did they contact me about it? Nope. No phone call to me, no phone call to my apartment, no letter, no email... The only reason I know anything about this is because they changed the lock on the door and gave my roommates a letter saying they were changing the lock and that one of the roommates had been terminated. They had to go to the front desk to even find out merely who had been terminated. So when I get up later today I will have to go over there and find out what the hell is going on. angry

So I will post my thoughts on bgg.con eventually, but no guarantees on when. Also, my games I am modding are very likely to at least be delayed for a week. I also apologize to those whom I am playing games with currently as my participation is likely to be sparse and intermittent at best. Things are only compounded by the fact that I'll have to send my computer ahead of me by as much as I can as I live in the opposite corner of the country from Florida. I will still try to post as much as I can though.

And the airline decided to add insult to injury too... they lost by freaking bag. shake


Btw, if you need to contact me, still try PMs, but I won't guarantee any responses. If you need to get a hold of me, give me a call. And if you don't have my number, feel free to shoot me a PM for it.

Just one follow-up note:

Later today I should have a much better idea of what's going to be going on this week. And I will post something here to give an update.

Best of luck sorting out the insanity, RF. (See - we can switch back to BGG IDs now... no more of this Jeremy stuff ).

We'll keep the seats open for you. I'd offer to put you up while you sort stuff out, but that might prove a little out of your way...

purely as a lay person b/c it's unethical for me as a first year law student to actually offer any sort of legal advice...

I know you're the epitome of small fish, but careful that you're not precluded by your employment contracct from saying anything negative about Disney or your hiring/firing.. that's the kind of 1984 bullshit they would have in a contract..

I can say whatever I want about Disney, like how they trick college students into taking "internships" that are basically crap jobs for shit wages and you can be happy to be rid of them..

how that kind of failure to provide even the smallest bit of consideration is indicative of why Disney is "the man" and "the man" SUCKS...

now to those of you planning to visit there.. just remember that your slow moving clerk is probably just another disaffected college student tricked by the Disney machine into accepting an "internship" & his/her soul is slowly dying so that you can go to the gift shop any time from dawn to nearly midnight.

also, I heard Mickey is a chick.. pass it on!

Damn... I was sooooo hoping this was a just cruel joke from your roommates (yeah, I know you said they wouldn't do *that* sort of joke, but the hope was still somewhat there) so I could tell you to kick their ass some for me for doing that... Damn...

Glad I was able to lend an ear for you to vent to when you found out on Sunday! Hope everything gets sorted out soon and we will see ya back on here ASAP!!

And fuck them for robbing you of seeing a Space Shuttle lauch again! yuk yuk

I was looking for a silver lining, like "At least they didn't tell you before you went to con - at least you'd have had fun at the con without this hanging over you" but it seems like they ruined THAT for you too?

Damn the man.

Hope it all works out for you, Jeremy. But, think of it this way. They were the ones who lost out in the long run. Keep us informed.

Geeez!!!!

I'm sorry to hear that. I hope it was *ahem* not liking the comments that we shouted on Skype. That would just make me feel awful if we had anything to do with it!

The whole locking you out is 100% uncool. And where do you think they're going to try and deliver your bag??? Ugh!

Good luck with everything and keep us posted!
