I know exactly what you're talking about my wife used to have a job at a gun shop and was worked like a slave for a crappy salary but she kept her head up and lasted a couple years. When she had her major surgery I mentioned earlier she went back to work 6 weeks later and they had replaced her. They hired another cashier and harassed my wife every day about the most minor stuff to the point of her coming home one day in tears. I told her not to return to work the next day and that they had replaced her and went around the Family Medical Leave Act by not firing her they just gave her a hard time hoping she would quit.
Needless to say I went to her store the next day to get her stuff and let them have it. God, I was so furious it's amazing I came out of there without handcuffs.
She's better off now working a job she loves that has it's stressful moments but what job doesn't right?
Update: she is feeling a little better this morning we think the pizza she ate last night on an empty stomach got her acid reflux working overtime...
