I would imagine the Union is standing by you for other employment?
We'll have to wait and see what happens with this investigation, the only thing I dread is seeing yourself on camera.

I would like a supermarket close by so that I don't need to take two buses, one bus is fine with me.

Howard, this will all work out eventually, as tough as it might feel right now.

I've found that some of the most difficult situations I've been in - times that seemed terrible as I was experiencing them - eventually led to my life being far better than it ever was beforehand. Because of this, I now try to look at these situations not as problems but as possible transitions (painful though they may be) to something much better.

You're a good man. This has certainly been a lesson, but keep your eyes and ears (and your heart) open to the new opportunities that might come your way!

Much wisdom in your advice, and beautifully expressed. Thank you!

Thanks Checker, This coming up Monday or Tuesday I have a meeting with Human Resources and The Union Rep, My Father will be there too as well, I don't know what they're going to say to Me And My Father but I believe this time I will be let go and after that file for temporary unemployment until he can try to locate another supermarket for me, they will put up my nearly 15 years as an employer, I hope this can lead to better things in the future. To be honest, I liked a lot of the workers there but the neighborhood they put me in looked like a trash heap almost every day and that was quite nauseating.

I just want to wake up from a night's sleep and get a call from Stop N Shop with the manager saying on the phone to please come back to work we're sorry for terminating you but I know that'll never happen unless I pay the manager a huge amount of money to have me return, How much would I need to give him?

But all jokes aside, I don't know if I want Unemployment Benefits, how much would I get paid and does it depend on how many years you've been working at a certain company since I have nearly 15 years there? :confused:

My Father And I are still waiting for my Union Rep to make an appointment with The HR sometime this week either Thursday or Friday, What do you think HR will say to My Father And I? Has anyone ever had Unemployment Benefits before? :confused:

Nothing much happening right now but I think I may be on "administrative leave" for now until they finish this investigation wherever that'll be but other than that My Father is frustrated and so am I. ☹

I really hope something happens with me, My Mother doesn't want me to keep staying at home by the computer, that's unhealthy and My Father is pissed off that he had to call just to leave once again another message to see what's going on with this Union Rep, What The "F" is going on? :confused:

Howard, I understand that the waiting can be frustrating, but now is not the time for you or your Father to show your impatience. Time is probably on your side. Be patient and allow things to play out at their own pace. Trust me...you won't be sorry! I'm thinking the longer it takes to resolve, the more likely things will resolve in your favor.

If I'm overstepping my bounds, tell me so and I will mind my own business. Take care and have a good day. ;)

I still look back at a month ago and wonder why was I such a dumbass that day"? But you're right, maybe this is taking longer than usual and My Father And I should wait for the results and see what happens but how many more messages/emails should My Father keep on leaving?

I think maybe it was a good time for a change, It was in 2017 I think when I was doing throwbacks and collecting baskets that was good and had some variety but then they hired another cart attendant and after that I stopped doing throwbacks and collecting baskets and just stayed on carts after that, I was stuck in a corner if you know what I mean, a bit bored but I didn't mind being on my own, being my own boss.
