I was fired because I wanted to go on a trip and as a casual employee - my idiot idiot manager didn't even know I was a casual employee - I had no vacation time. she also didn't believe I had a real medical condition. she is such a complete idiot. I mean she kept acting like I didn't come in to work because I was sitting on my ass eating bon bons. she ignored my emails, texts. She is disgusting. now i have to go to appeals so they know that I wasn't fired for misconduct. DUMB IDIOT - unbelievable.
Okay, what you put in your post...that is what NOT to say.
If you missed work because of a medical issue, and you informed the employer of the medical issue and the need for a short leave before you missed work, focus on that and only that. If you missed work because you wanted to go on a trip, you will likely not get benefits.
The EDD hearing officer does not want to hear you call your boss an idiot and doing so will hurt your already slim chances of success.
Good luck to you.
