Things Fall Apart
Let me tell you about the time I got fired.
It all started when my father was given college football tickets to see Alabama play Georgia at Bryant Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa.
At the time, I was working at a department store stocking sporting goods and home improvement supplies.
I tried to get the day off, but Saturdays are a busy day in the retail world, so it was pretty much impossible.
So I did what any responsible 17-year-old would have done –
I called in sick!
It was a great game. There's nothing like the college football atmosphere especially when there are 94,000 other people who are enjoying it with you.!
I'll never forget the game (Georgia won 17-16), I'll never forget the stadium, and I'll also never forget being fired on Monday!
Did I deserve to be fired? Probably. It's pretty irresponsible to leave your employer hanging as well as your coworkers.
Would I have done it again? Probably. It's the sort of thing an irresponsible 17-year-old does.
Was it right? Of course not. When you say you're going to do the job, you do the job.
Join us this Sunday as we look at the life of David and how he “got fired” in Things Fall Apart!
P.S. If you're interested, Georgia and Alabama will play again October 3. We'll probably have a party!
