    People bring friends and family to the meeting when they are getting fired? Is that really a thing?

    Years ago, I had a kid out of college bring his Mom to a job interview.
    "Mame, you are not needed in the interview."
    "I want to make sure he gets all that is coming to him when he gets the job!!!"

    I had a put a guy on a PIP once, felt pretty bad about it because at one time he was pretty coherent but as he aged his ability to speak/interact really got bad and I had to do something. HR questioned my motivation so I said you go talk with him if you don't believe me. When they set up the meeting with him he asked if he could bring his son in with him to do the talking. They didn't take him up on the offer. He was 6-ish months shy of hitting 65 and the company basically gave have that much in severance as bridge to SS. He was a really good guy but just ran out of steam before the finish.

    I witnessed an RN getting fired with her mom (Also an RN) in attendance, because she thought her daughter was getting railroaded and came to her performance review apparently. 3 RN's fighting... boy howdy. In fact, the only reason I knew what was going on is cause my office was across from the "head" of nursing and Mom came out yelling and then yelling at her daugher to come with her, and yelling about everybody being incompetent, and mom just continued her tantrum all the way out.

    What as shitshow. But, daughter was really f**king hot and crying so all that gave me a boner.

    So mom and daughter ended up getting fired, right?

    Is it sad that this last part sounds totally normal for this place? :crackup:

    Mom didn't even work there. Worked at some other medical facility in the area. She just thought the daughter was getting railroaded. I heard later, and who knows could be BS, but the daughter was allegedly missing a lot of shifts but showing up in a lot of facebook drunk posts a lot and someone ratted her out.

    Allegedly was going to get "counseled" on attendance, but once she brought her mom to the review, the chief decided right there she was getting canned. I worked with the Chief quite a bit on some projects, an absolutely no bullshit woman so I have no doubt that part is true.

    And don't judge - crying hot girls half your age should be arousing, provided they are not related and/or in genuine distress.

    I had a guy work for me and he introduced me to his wife one day. She sat in the room as he quit. She made him quit and didn't think he had the balls to do it if she weren't there. Weirdest shit I've seen.

    so you ruled out comforting her, or did you just go for it?

    We had a young kid just out of HS come into his job interview for a shop kid (pre-apprentice) position with his mother this past year. I’m pretty sure she still wiped his ass for him. Our shop manager took pity and hired him. He should have hired his mom. She would have been better.

    I'm glad someone other than me has his priorities in perspective.

    High five.
