Yes, I have and to this day, when I tell folks about the type of job I was fired from - they are stunned in disbelief! I am an avid seamstress and can sew just about anything my eyes can 'see' and without a store bought pattern (I sometimes make my own). ...The job I was fired from was manufacturing baby clothes. At the time, I was a young wife and mother and my husband (now deceased) and I were saving to buy a house. I thought that perhaps if I get a job, we'd be able to come up with more money faster. About two weeks into the job, I became so burned-out from working all day, taking turns tending to an infant all night, cooking, cleaning, self-grooming - and on top of all of that, 'insomnia' would keep me up for at least an hour per night. After a while, I guess the foreman of the company got tired of my not making daily quota and terminated me. ...I was so happy that I cried, and they thought I was crying in despair and gave me three completed outfits for my infant daughter and a $25.00 Walmart gift certificate. :(
