luvmydog2 Posted October 31, 2003 Share Posted October 31, 2003 As you know I have been trying to decide whether to go back to work part time. Social Security tells me I can do that. I have thought about it now since I signed up for my SS in August. The college has been trying to get me to return part time to do some things that no one else knows how to do but me. I am basiclly the only one that knows the key system since I was the one that re-keyed all the locks and did all the lock work. I would really like to work about 2 days a week to train someone on the locks. I got word from SS yesterday that I was approved. It only took me 7 1/2 weeks to get an approval. As of yesterday I had not decided about work yet. This morning I woke up and told my wife that I had slept on it and decided NOT to go back. I don't feel that I need to get out this winter and clear the walk way and parking lot. About 11:30 today my boss calls and ask for me. He said that home office had started my termination papers cause my Family Medical Leave ran out Oct 23. He did say that he could re-hire me from scratch but I would need to get a full release from doctor. I told him last week that if I came back it would be Nov 5 when I went to doctor and then I still had therapy to go to on Tue and Thurs and doctor appt at times so I would miss now and then. Yea Right. Start from scratch and loose 12 1/2 years senority. I don't think so. :lol: Anyway, I still did not tell him that I had SS but I laughed my head off after we hung up. I am not one to leave someone holding the bag like that and I will tell him one day next week. I know that I am a liability as far as insurance goes but to look for an excuse like that..... I sort of figured that this would happen so that is why I did not tell them about me apply for SS till I was sure I might get it. I was surprised that It did not take a year and a couple of appeals. Just wanted to share this... Bruce Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
