Royal Palm Beach International Airport Informative - Fired Air Traffic Controller for having A-D-D

Review by this stuff happens to me all the time on 2005-09-09
LAKE PARK -- Thanks to the equal employment opportunity commission, I was hired as an air traffic controller last Friday. My boss was aware of my disability (A-D-D, or attention deficit disorder) but hired me anyway.

On the first day, I was watching t-v and not paying attention to the incoming flights. My boss started telling me to pay attention, but I was thinking about what I'm going to do this weekend and didn't hear him while I was eating a bag of potato chips and talking on my cell phone. To make a short story longer, I was fired. This isn't right and now I can't get an attorney to take my case. Any suggestions?

You were eating and talking to your cell phone, not working. You deserved to be fired. If I owned a company and caught you talking on your cell phone while working on the clock, I'll fire you right away.

Gee MJ, I thought if anyone could recognize a fake report/ fiction story, it would be you.
