You did ask an illegal question. She should contact the labor board on your unprofessional, discriminatory questioning azz. At least she had the knowledge and common sense to let you know about it.




Actually, this was in 1988 and some of these labor issues were just getting started.  What could and could not be brought up during an interview wasn't as clear cut as it is now.


My questioning about family had absolutely nothing to do with the interview process.  Like I said it was at the beginning of the meeting and was just making conversation.


LOL, she got the job.

Our views of "funny" are dramatically different.

"haha take that tardy mclaterton! I just fired you from a shitty minimum wage job that no one should have to work anyway because you have more personal obligations than some others! Ha! "



"Funny" had absolutely nothing to do with her causing herself to lose her job.


 The "funny" part was the irony of me not being able to talk about her family at all, but, her being able to use her family as a reason for not doing her job.


Just for your info, writing up someone for being late is seldom done in a vacuum.  The most damaging part of tardiness is not the employee losing work time, it's the decline in morale of all the other employees doing what they are supposed to do while watching someone else be treated favorably by being late all the time with no repercussions,

Yeah, that's the problem pstall, being married with three young children combined with working these overnight hours leave me with zero time for myself



Just a funny story:


Years ago I was a shift Manager with about 60 minimum wage employees who reported to me.  


One day I was interviewing a woman and I asked if she had kids.  It was just an offhand question, I was just making conversation at this point.  She proceeds to tell me it was against the law to ask that question in an interview.  She tells me I'm not to ask about her family, whether or not she's married, or, ask about children.


I ended up hiring her and she was late 3 times in her first 2 weeks.  The first 2 times were just a couple minutes and I counselled her verbally.  The 3rd time I called her in and told her I was writing her up.


She then goes into a story about getting delayed while trying to get her kids ready for school.


I said, "Wait a second, I thought we weren't allowed to talk about your family."  You can imagine how that went over.  She ended up getting released during her probationary period.

You've really done a great job of convincing yourself that your reasons for not being able to show up for work on time are somehow legitimate.

Unfortunately, your work place isn't convinced.

Either is anyone here.

I'm guessing you have an excuse for everything you are not successful at, and I'm sure it's always someone else's fault.

There comes a time you have to put on your big boy pants and take responsibility for your actions.

Forget what everyone else is doing. Never mind who ELSE is or isn't getting written up. Quit imagining that everyone is out to get you.
