The economy sucks, but my luck is worse

I lost my job today. Unfortunately, it has to do with my dumb luck and not the economy. I would be a lot more okay with that.

I had a chronic attendance problem. More like a punctuality problem. I was officially written up for it a few weeks ago, and since have been on time for every shift. I pulled my shit together. Then, on Saturday I showed up for work at two, like a normal Saturday shift, 2-10. I was scheduled to start at one.

I went in to get fired today.

I don't think I have ever been fired before. This sucks. I REALLY liked my job too. It didn't pay the greatest, but I enjoyed it. I was told that I had the most potential of any employee there. I guess I also have the worst luck of anyone there.

This came days after my car got hit while parked in Urbana (and is now missing both sideview mirrors and half a bumper) and about a week after my landlord threatened to evict me because of rent I paid but they apparently never got. So, yeah, life is quite cheery right now.

There has to be a silver lining somewhere in these dark clouds, right? I hope so.

kid... I'm sorry. I heard in a blues song once, "If it weren't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all." I miss you.
