If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

I was just fired today.  I am very much in a state of numb shock for the moment, even though I suspected the situation was untenable due to office politics.  I  had hoped to be given a chance to show that I was worth the effort but it was not to be.

Oh, that sucks. (((Ashmire)))

May you adjust to the shock quickly and with minimal discomfort; may you find a new job better suited to you and where you're properly appreciated, as soon as you're ready to do so; may the time in between, be it short or long by your own choice, be a time of rest, revitalization, and positive insights.

Praying that you find employment quickly!

"Whichever devotee desires to adore whatever such Deity with faith, in all such votaries I make that particular faith unshakable. Endowed with that faith, a votary performs the worship of that particular deity and obtains the fruits thereof, these being granted by Me alone." - Sri Krishna

I'm so sorry - it's a blow when that happens (I've had one "We're cutting your job" and one "We are not renewing your contract" in my professional life.)

Very many good wishes for you finding somewhere that's a better fit for you, and appreciates you, and promptly.

That really sucks. I’ve been through something similar once before. It’s very hard to explain, and you sound petty even trying, but yeah- workplace politics do exist. The worst day of my life had a lot of red flags, including a recent suspension based on totally false pretext.

It took me about a year to find an equally good job. It was rough. I wish you luck.

Hugs and good vibes Ashmire. Wishing you the best of everything you seek, and the best luck a person can have in rough times.

I hope you get a better job soon! (if that's what you want.)

So sorry to hear it - I can well imagine the state of numb shock, and sympathise with the office politics having made things untenable.  My best wishes for you whilst you move on from this setback, at your own pace.
