Meet M. Cousins

The first time I was fired from a job it came as a complete blindside. I was working in a retail store in the local mall. When I arrived at work, a co-worker greeted me with “The boss wants to see you.” The boss handed me a list of infractions I had apparently committed and informed me I was out of a job.
