I think that is insane. The employer has no responsibility here. I knew the couple. She was nice and trying. He was the reason Wendy was the way she was. I can guarantee the employer was hoping he quit showing up so they could get rid of him. Quit trying to find fault when most of the time fault lies with your own choices.
If you knew the couple did you call?

Bill Sorry for your lose. To bad the employer didn't call sooner like the couple found in Vadnais Hts Tuesday. The employer called the day after no call no show. We have been discussing this at work and questioned our boss. He commented I have and would call. It is very sad people do not understand depression.

What a stupid question. I know a lot of people but I definitely do not call them everyday nor every month. Do you? I'll try and say this slow - unless you are a child, it is no one persons responsibility to look after you unless they volunteer to do so. Just because someone employs you doesn't make them responsible for your life.

Hit a nerve I guess no need to get so defensive, it was only a question. Stupid umm maybe, then why answer it. It matters little to me. It is interesting what gets a reaction here and what does not. In general I am done with this comment thread people are cold hearted here. And yes people I care about I do contact often or vise versa. To all I hope tragedy stays far from your door.

Wow you Union must be very powerful you guys must pull down some good money thanks to them (kind of surprised you would trash talk them though, I would be afraid of finding myself in some cement shoes if your Union is as good as you make it out to be though.) The reason the school probably hasn't fired him yet if indeed they haven't is that it just might look a little heartless to fire him so soon after his wife’s passing. It also might cause some problems with lawyers even if the union isn’t involved (after all if you can sue for spilling for spilling hot coffee on you lap I’m sure a lawyer could find some ground to stand on. Finally since you just made the wonderful statement that you work in a different building then him and have a problem with him, and now that it has been posted for all to see “is a worthless human that keeps his job because the union sticks up for his lazy ****.”,” he walks like a 100 year old man”. A Lawyer would love to find the central origin of the comment and would expand on it. At worst your comments point to a “Hostile work environment”(whether it’s justifiable or not, I don’t know and most likely a lawyer would care they would just run with it) at best it point to your employers that you should have a fun touchy feely diversity training section or some sort of sensitivity training rubbish. Ether way I wouldn’t want to be in the Middle of your School problems.

he works at different school i here things about him people who have worked with him. he walks like a 100 year old man. they say he called in way to much and didnt do his job when they do summer cleaning they have to give him a job that keeps him out of the way. there are people waiting for his job to open up. and by the way the union is sticking up for him . i do agree that 8 days before work called to check is crazy .people up top should be nervous makes them look really bad . who is running this place?

God works in mysterious ways. Wonder if he is being punished or rewarded (guess the same could be said about the wife).

All I'm gonna say is I am related to her. She was sick mentally. We tried getting her help many times but her husband wouldn't allow it. She blames her children and so do her friends. Her children loved her, they just couldn't stay around for the mental and emotional abuse. they should be getting the report soon. And her husband no longer is a janitor.
