Varney Nursing Home

A little over a year ago, my wife worked at Varney, in North Berwick, in housekeeping. Just under FT. She never called in sick, never was late. She covered for others who couldn't make it in (like when the snow was horrible. We lived right around the corner, and she walked when she had to/no prob.)
I got a lucrative job offer in the Boston area, and we were openly contemplating moving. The commute would be close to 2 hours, each way.
With the prospect of losing a $7 an hour pee-on, the new administrator "Barbara" had the nerve to tell my wife that I "should" commute. She went on about the bad points about living in MA, that I "really need to consider" not moving. Why? For HER sake.
Where the Hell do people, especially employers/bosses get off telling others how they should live their lives outside of the workplace?? Not just their pee-on employees, but the family members of such?
Well, "Barbara", my wife quit her thankless job & is pursuing one of her life-long ambitions. And, without your unsolicited "advice" (read; demand), I AM commuting & I raked in just under $90K in a year's time. What was my wife making there?$245 a week before taxes?
I've heard plenty from all kinds of people about what Varney turned into since you came onboard. Good luck keeping people!
There's an old saying, "Your servant is your master." Too bad you didn't go for a degree in Manners. Logic. Respect. And, minding your own business.

Do YOU have relatives/loved ones at Varney?
They have disabled to audible alarm systems so bed ridden residents cannot "bother" the staff.
