Lets backtrack for a second.
8 July 2005: Arranged on the 7th July, I was due to work at 1pm. My boss phones me later the same day (7th) and tells me "I cant tomorrow, I got something." At least he told me a good way in advance the first time.
12 July 2005: Arranged on the 5th July, I was due to work at 2pm. My boss sends an email to my phone at 11am, saying "I cant today, I got something." But, I never recieved the email il about 3pm. Obviously, I turned up at work, unknowingly. He asked me what I was doing there. The something he had which made him unavailable to work? His son was ill. Not seriously ill. Depressed as my friend has just left, and because I cancelled a private students lesson, whom I enjoy teaching alot and was sad to cancel. I leave work very low.
15 July 2005: Arranged on 12th July, I was due to work at 1pm. My boss sends an email to my phone at 11:30 saying "I cant today, I got something." I was at my local station, waiting for the train to work at the time.
17 July 2005: Arranged on 12th July, I was due to work at 1pm. Amazingly, everything went to plan and I worked for 2 hours, telling my boss I had to leave at 3pm to go to Church.
24 July 2005: Arranged a week ago, I was due to work at 2pm. My boss phones at 10.30am to let me know that "I cant today, I got something."
I am ULTRA ANGRY not only because this is the 4th time, but also because I cancelled meeting my friend because I had to work. I could have seen her. I shouldnt have cancelled, but my boss seemed 100% certain that he wasnt going to let me down this time. Im also angry as this is the day that I was planning on telling my boss "Im leaving." Now I cant. I have to wait til Wednesday. I just want to tell him now to get it over and done with.
...Or.....?? He has shown me ZERO respect. Why cant I let him know Im leaving by phone?
...Because he owes me my wages and more, thats why.
If you have any queries about why I am leaving Japan in September, meet my boss.
