My Old Boss Didn't Recognize Me.
Monday, October 08, 2012
After working over 9 years, I was let go from the new manager.
Yes, I was surprised and yes I cried my eyes out right there in front of him.
That was over 3 years ago. So now here I am over 92 lbs less. I had the Lapband Surgery in Feb 2010. I actually used my unemployment money to pay for it. I have never found a new job.
Well 2 weeks ago, since Ray, Cindy our poodle and I were out of the house so our home can be fogged for 4 hours. I decided to take a little ride to visit my friend Mona and the other people who work there still. i took Cindy in with me. I found out that the owner Clayton was there that day. So I decided to say hello. Both Cindy and I stood in the doorway to visit and say hi. Clayton who was a social man was very kind..Then I thought about it. And the words"Do you know who I am?" came out and he said NO I Don't. I was shocked and with my big mouth I said: "That's funny since I worked for you for 9 years, I am Ilene" He was floored. He could not believe that I looked like a different person because of my weight loss...What a wonderful NON SCALE VICTORY FOR ME
