Default suspended from work until further notice

The infraction was using profanity on the salesfloor. My coworker asked me where I went and I replied, "pee and ***** room," referring to restroom.

I've been at this company several years total. I had left and came back. I followed all the rules and acted professional until a few months ago (March). I suffered a mental breakdown from what happened at another company and had since screwed around and acted out just to distract myself. Nobody said anything to anyone about it until I recently said it to the wrong person (pee and ***** room).

Now I'm suspended from work until further notice. My supervisor documented it and sent it to employee relations asking them what to do about it. She'll call me when they reach a decision.

I'm sorry. It seems a bit exagerated to suspend you just for using profanity.

Sorry it happened to you but I wonder if that was a culmination after all other acting out and screwing around since March. Otherwise youíd likely be just reprimanded or written up.

Divine1966, She doesnít know about most of them. In fact, she only knows one other incident and I donít remember what it was.

Other employees likely talk about your behavior. Management typically knows.

She said she wants to hear from them if it warrants a termination, so she definitely took me off the schedule for today. However, she also left the rest of my shifts on my schedule in case I keep my job.

She did say she was sorry for having to do this but customers could have heard and be offended. Therefore, her hands are tied. Company policy also said it's usually automatic termination for using profanity. She will reach out to me shortly.

It's just that I act out bc of what the fast food joint did to me. Now I wanna stop blaming that supervisor bc it obviously did me no good. There are a few things I did that's way worse that she didn't know about. Otherwise, I woulda gotten my consequences sooner.
