That’s right, I said attacked! I was physically assaulted over a piece of paper!
I told my boss that I no longer wanted to work for her becuase of her unresonable temper, but that I would stay with the school until she was able to find a new teacher. Then she decided to fire me instead, effective immediately. I told her that she would have to give me two weeks (10 days) notice or 10 days pay, her choice.
That was on Saturday. This morning, I went to the office of the school, as asked by them. There they had a document for me to sign, stating that I would discontinue work that day and they could go forth with a clause in my contract (if I left before they found a new teacher they could take $20,000 from my pay). I pointed out that I was willing to stay until they found a new teacher, and I would not sign the document. I did however, wish to show the document to the labor affairs office, and would take it to show them.
Well, they (the boss, daughter and husband) flipped out :fume: and said I couldn’t take the paper, it was thier paper and I was trying to steal from them. Then amid shouts from them of “thief! call the police! it’s my paper! this is my house!” The boss and husband began grabbing for the paper while the daughter was trying to (painfully I might add) restrain and twist my hands! Keep in mind this daughter is 27 years old.
I was shocked and said I was not trying to steal it, I simply wanted to show the paper to the labor affairs if they wanted me to sign it. I asked them why they were assaulting me and to stop yelling at me. I asked them if they were crazy, told the daughter she was hurting me and tried to leave. This got them all shouting “No! You are crazy! You are crazy!” And I finally managed to get out the door (forfieting the paper to the family insane).
I went next to the labor board and then the foreign affairs police, but they (while very concerned about how upset I was) don’t really care, obviously. Is there any way that I can charge the daughter with assault? I don’t think they should be left to think they can treat anyone, foreign or local, this way and get away with it. Durins Bane, if you read this, do you know what to do? I was told to look out for your reply!
Thanks for reading my incredibly long and unbelievable story.
