    Yesterday, I beat "The Man".



    For two years, I have been fighting with a national Canadian company where I worked part time. They treated me and others like dirt. Others gave in. I fought. Sorry, can't give much details.


    Yesterday, I won. I got the $$ owed to me.

    Like a Smart Canuck, I told “The Man” to deposit the $$ in my RRSP. They said nobody did that. I told them I don’t care because I read the fine print and that a legit option – “Make it so”. Got an e-mail this morning that payroll has completed the transaction.

    Before meeting with “The Man”, scared as I was, I spotted a church nearby (not my church). Door was locked, but two men were working inside. I asked for 5 minutes to pray at the altar.

    After I won against “The Man”, went back to the church to thank the two men. One said, “Did you get it in writing?” Of course I did. I gave an offering to the church.


    Lesson to self – fight the good fight. It may be painful, but what is worth it doesn’t come easily sometimes. If little David could go against giant Goliath with 5 stones and win, so can I.


    Booyah!!!!!

    Thank you.

    @ Natalka, thank you.

    I brought my "A" game to the meeting with "The Man". I have all my notes. I kept all my e-mails.

    I sent thank you e-mails to the people in the company, who listened and tried to help over these years.

    Gonna miss this job because my coworkers and my customers were top notch. Loved, loved working with the teens. They were fun and treated me like one of them.

    WOW!
    You have a lot more guts than most people do.
    I'm sure this was very hard for you to do. But I'm also sure that "What does not kill us makes us stronger"
    May we all be strong when the time comes for us to fight.
