Should I be worried? (FINAL WARNING)
So i’ve gotten a final warning in the past (years ago) and my LOD was as gentle as he could about it. (long story short: forgot to turn in electronics keys they went missing and then it meant i earned a final warning and he told me it’ll be okay we moved on from there and a year later it was gone smooth as ever)
but today i got a final warning (LOD is claiming he’s gonna give me the warning tomorrow) and basically attempted to force me to resign (likely so i couldn’t collect unemployment) and i refused but he kept insisting and i kept refusing. He was extremely abrasive and demeaning and an asshole about everything basically said ‘i would just resign because honestly at this point it doesn’t look good for you no matter what you do unless you make a COMPLETE change, i’ve lost complete faith.’ and the reasoning for the final warning is a write up for texting (i intended to speak to the head of the store later today because it was entirely injustified— i answered a text from my mom 15 mins before closing where she was letting me know she was on her way to get me) and today he claimed i extended my 15 min break for TWO HOURS which is a blatant lie. i still intend to talk to the head of my store today (gonna go in early) to talk to him about all of this because HR is shit anyway. i’ve been here 8 years (too long) but should i be genuinely worried? or was he just using some bull shit scare tactics to get me to resign even though i wouldn’t budge?
