16. I have signed up a lawyer

And he thought they wouldnt fire me, sorta 50-50 he said.
I was told that I could "re-apply" but that I was considered a voluntary resignation.

I was told at the git that I would be out 4-6 months.
FMLA is a no go because I wasnt with the company for a year.
Of course they didnt even mention that when I got hurt.
I will receive benefits until May 23, but I guess there a company's that will advance cash based on
a future settlement, for a price, of course.

I just have to wait it out, I guess.
It REALLY sucks they can do this, it seems just so ...petty and mean, you know?
But, from what the lawyer say's, thats the way the game is played.
Some fucking game, eh?

I do have my tax returns coming, and I really dont have trouble getting a job.
18 years of truck driving and no tickets or accidents, they like records like that.
I got laid off my last job, go figure, all I want is a long term gig.
But I keep losing jobs, sigh.

Thanks for the kind words, it's much appreciated.
