I prolly shouldn't be angry, but now I can't help it. I know that A&L did him wrong and that's why he lost his temper and shut the machine down...but why couldn't he use better judgement? Why didn't he think of his family? We have 2 kids to raise and now 1 on the way. And now I have to think about working if he can't find another decent job. Why did this have to happen now?

My girlfriend Tracy went through the same thing. Honey you have a right to be mad and voice your opinion with him! I hope he finds something soon and better.

I think you have every right to be upset! He should have thought of you and the kids! I hope he finds another good job.

I can totally understand. You have every right to be angry with him but talk to him about.

Guys don't think like us women do. I'm not saying it's an excuse it's just a fact. They freak after it happened when it's to late. Things always happen for a good reason. So hopefully he's going to get a better job Think Positive, if you can... I know your stressing and I would be to.

If you can just try to talk to him about it. I know it is not easy for you. Given your situation 2 kids and one on the way, you have every right to be stressed. I hope everything works out in the end. I know it's hard not to be mad at him. I would be mad too.

You have every right to be angry. Men sometimes just don't think.

Hon have you told him how you feel about all this? You need to be able to vent your frustration and anger too

I would be angry, too. It's difficult not to be angry. I hope your dh can find a better job.
I may have missed something, but what exactly happened? (if you don't mind me asking...)

Well, Jerm worked on production machines at work, and they run on schedules. They changed the machine schedules around so that he would have no time to eat until 2 hours before it was time to leave (he worked 12 hour shifts). When he found out about the schedule change, he went to the next machine he was supposed to doff and turned it off. That's why they fired him; plus they held a write-up against him that had just rolled off and shouldn't have counted.

I would be angry at him too. It was a hotheaded and rash thing to do. Talk to him about it and let him know how you feel. I hope he finds a better job soon.

Becca, did your dh talk to a manager or someone about not eating until 10 hours after he got there? Did he try to get it changed first? Your dh had every right to be upset (in my opinion), and probably turned the machine off as a statement (and to get everyone's attention - which he did, I guess).

I know it is difficult NOT to be angry, but just try to think positive. He will find a job - hopefully a better one. I am sorry you are going through this. Have you talked to your dh about how you feel? How is your dh handling this?

Hugs to you!
