    Ok I read the “Yahoo” version of the story not this one and it didn’t state anything about a Dr’s advised vacation. I probably wouldn’t have fired the guy unless it was “paid leave” which the story didn’t state; a couple of months? Pleaseeeee, there are too many other people out there looking for jobs and willing to put up with the stress just to survive. He’s obviously too old to be working as a project coordinator. Call me cynical but I have done too many Workers Comp claims to believe anyone’s BS anymore. I do agree they should have “discussed” it first before sacking them both; that to me was wrong!

    He deserves his job back and a bonus in my book. I bet the shark attack didn't play well on his nervousness, though!

    Elite...you would fire an individual for following Doctor's Orders?!?! The Doc said to take a break from work, a vacation...thats what he did, now he is fired. I guess he should've laid in bed at home and watched TV eating chips and drinking soda.

    Though Suzzanne was being "Sarcastic" She was a lot nicer than I would have been!! The guy signs up today just to comment on this post? I'm pulling and UncleDennis...something doesn't seem right! The guy lost his job because he was out on sick leave due to "work related stress" yet he's frolicing in the ocean with a shark! I would have fired him too!

    Now hold there--I don't see where ash tried to rip anything. He simply disagreed with what you said. As for introductions, they are strongly recommended, but by no means required (contrary to popular misconception). People are constantly saying it is in the TOU. I challenge anyone to show me where in the TOU it says introductions are required. If I'm proven wrong, I promise I will admit my error.

    That has nothing to do with being a libral! There are jerks everywhere conservative jerks, libral, black, white, men, and women. Being a jerk knows no bounds to what you are but who you are! The imporant thing right now is a man got fired from his job for saving children and needs a another one! Thats not right that he was fired! That what we need to focus on!
