Greenway Ford Bodyshop and Don Henson December 30, 2008

Filed under: random ramblings,ticked off — jessica31876 @ 9:29 pm

This post is about Greenway Ford located in Orlando Florida and the manager of the body shop whose name is Don Henson. This man is the coldest most despicable person ever born….basically a waste of human flesh.  Pretty harsh you might be thinking I suppose? Well let me just explain why I am saying this. Trust me by the time you get to the end of this post you will agree with me and I hope this blog will allow some people who might be considering doing business with Greenway FOrd and especially the body shop to reconsider.

First let me tell you about Don Henson. Don is one of those men who is arrogant, self-centered and extremely selfish. The kind of man who cares about himself and only himself. He will ask for a favor from you then turn around the next minute and screw you over if it will get him something out of it. He enjoys creating drama and being in the center of the drama to stir it all up. He thinks the world owes him everything and walks around acting like he is some big shot when really he does nothing for what he gets.

So enough of the prick for now here is what actually happened. My husband worked for Greenway Ford’s body shop for five years. He rarely took off work because he was sick and worked even though he was in pain everyday from a bad back. When someone in upper management needed their car fixed they wanted it done right and therefore there was only one person who they came to and that was my husband. When they had a Viper come in that was a train wreck and the owner wanted it done perfectly it was sent to my husband to fix. That should say something right? So he at one point had to leave there because there just was not enough work and the tension between my husband and the prick Don Henson was becoming to much to bare. Don told my husband that he HAD to provide a paper from his doctor who he was seeing for his back saying what he was being seen for. This as far as I know is highly illegal. He might be able to ask for proof of a doctors appointment but he has no right to say he has to have proof of what he was seen for. So that was just one of the problems.

Well fast forward six months after he left Greenway he got a call from one of the adjusters saying he really wanted my husband to come back. He agreed but then Don somehow twisted this around and told my husband he was actually hiring him back as a favor to my husbands parents. That was untrue but whatever he went with it because he needed work and believed Don when he said he could provide him with 40-50 hours of work a week. After being there for a month my husband did not receive a single penny for his work. He had an accident on November 23rd and was injured again and has been working still even though he should be out of work by doctors orders. He did not miss a single day since being there. On December 30th Don Henson called my husband into his office to inform my husband he was being fired and the reason for this is that my husband supposedly lied.

What did he lie about you might wonder? When he received parts to fix a van. He received them on December 23rd, 2008 and December 24th, 2008. He never lied about that. That is when he got them. He had an MRI on the 24th and could not do any cutting or drilling so he did what he could on that day which was only a half day. This van was originally due on the 26th but because there was a supplement made on this car it should have been extended. Well because Don is the selfish ignorant person he is he refuses to go by the supplements due date. He told my husband he does not care if there is an extention they are going by the original due date period. He told my husband he could not speak to defend himself that he is fired period. Then he fills out the form saying my husband would not be receiving his final check or at least not all of it. The last check would be used to pay for rental for Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Im not even sure how that could be because the car was due on Friday so why should my husband be responsible for Thursday and Friday? Why should the insurance company not pay for this rental if in fact the supplement was submitted and approved? 

My husband does not want to work for Don Henson anymore. We do not need charity and certainly never asked for this “favor” no matter what he said. Im not really sure what he gets out of this exactly because all he is doing is making more enemies. In talking to other people who have worked with/for Don even current employees they all despise him. Alot of them act like they like him to his face because if they dont he will treat them like he did my husband. As hard as it is right now I am proud of my husband and Im glad he did not beg for his job or bow down to this immature bully of a manager. 

As of this moment we have contacted an atttorney and Don will be getting what is coming to him. He is going to see he cannot push people around and step on people like this just for his own pleasure.


layouts today… October 18, 2008

Filed under: random ramblings,scrap stuff/layouts,ticked off — jessica31876 @ 12:40 am

Well I have a few layouts to post but first just thought Id blog a little. I was hoping Johnny would come home today and tell me they got his supplement all straightened out but he didnt. The supplement is for a car he fixed and his boss has been trying to get paid on that job since September. It is kind of depressing because he only flagged 15 hours this week. Just to give you an idea he averages about 11 dollars an hour 😦 Really sucks. So then after Johnny gets home my sister calls me and she starts going on about her lovely ex-husband. She seems to think he is this awful person but really she is kinda neurotic herself. This time she is mad that he picked up their daughter from school at 10:30 instead of at her release time because he wanted to do something for her birthday. She said she is going to report him for contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Whatever…she is just sooo petty sometimes its no wonder they split up. She says her daughter does not want to talk to his dad…she told me she loves them both but she is tired of being questioned and them arguing all the time. Ughhh just really frustrating listening to that when Im already stressed out over my own issues. I mean if she had a legetimate complaint I would be more then willing to listen and maybe even offer advice but I am so tired of listening to her complain about every single thing he does. She chose to marry him and have a child with him so really she should just get over it. OK so enough of my rants LOL here are my layouts.

Sooo annoying…why do I let her get to me? October 5, 2008

I came home today from doing laundry and my daughter tells me to go check on facebook because she sent me some flairs. I go on and see my flair has been flooded with anti-mccain and pro-obama stuff from people on my friends list (ok they dont know I am for mccain) but alot were also from my sister. She does know and she is just doing it to irritate me. The last time she was here she was going on and on about being against Palin because she is so anti-woman and McCain because he is also anti-woman. I am kinda private about my thoughts and opinions on who I vote for and what my thoughts are. I think it is rude to ask someone who they vote for or whether they are democrat or republican. Dont really know why I just do. I dont care what she thinks honestly and she knows it. So this is just to aggravate me. And of course I let it…I wish it didnt bug me but I know her and I know that is why she is going it and it does. Of course next time I talk to her I am going to let her know not to do it anymore though because it isnt going to make me change my mind and Im not trying to make her change hers.


Ughhh stupid woman September 27, 2008

My daughter is going to homecoming tonight and she has to stop to cash her check and we are waiting in line she is in a hurry and some lady in the store walks up like she is just going to get right to the front of the line. There were two people in front of us and she got behind us. The cashier/CSM helps them both out and then when it comes time for her to help us she asks my daughter what she can help her with and she tells her she needs to cash her check. So she takes my daughters check sets it down and then takes the woman behind us and starts ringing her up. I say to her “we are in a little bit of a hurry and we have been waiting for quite awhile in line so could you just cash the check?” She then says to me “This woman was here first (um yea thats why she is behind us??) and I have to check her out first” OK then why did you not check her out before the other two women you already helped? I mean I HATE HATE HATE that!! I have to wait in line and she can just walk right up to the front of the line? If she had just told us BEFORE taking my daughters check that she had already helped the woman behind us then I would have been fine with it but to take my daughter’s check and then just set it down and go help someone else? That was just plain rude IMO. I am encountering this kind of thing more and more and no matter how nice I am to someone they still have that same snippy snotty attitude that makes me wanna knock their heads off. Then my daughter told me after I walked out so I didnt tell her off that she slammed the money in her hand. She oughtta be really lucky that she didnt do that in front of me because I think that would have been the last straw
