   You can't biatch that you were fired from your job while you were off helping with Hurricane Sandy as a Volunteer Firefighter when your boss doesn't know you're a Volunteer Firefighter and instead of telling him you just go AWOL

I disagree. Sure he can biatch. But no one has to listen.

Could have at least left a voicemail or text. Would have taken all of 1 minute.

And I found Campolongo's texts rude. Not the boss'.

L&C co-owner Cliff Cini said Campolongo, who had been employed by the company for only about four weeks, was fired when he went AWOL during the storm after indicating he would be available to work.

Only a month on the job and you no-call/no-show? I'd have fired you too.

Campolongo: "Hey, you wanna fire me, fine. ... Look on the news and CNN, and you'll see why I couldn't call you. ... I'm ridiculous??? Well, it's after 4!!! ... I ACCEPT YOUR FIRING MY ASS!!!"

Ohhh hell yea I would fire you after that! Never mind the fact that you're 40 and still don't know the difference between 'your' and 'you're'.

I have had plenty of bosses in the past that sent a meeting invite 3 minutes before the meeting is supposed to start. And they can't read e-mails or listen to voice messages. The guy probably shouldn't have lost his head and taunted the guy though. That is poor form on his part.

Campolongo said he had expected to hear from Cini over the weekend if he was needed to work. He said he had no cellular service in storm-ravaged Ocean County, and he didn't receive any messages until he was on his way back to Burlington County.

BS. We had spotty cell service at best but texts worked fine, even at the height of the storm.

Campolongo had no intention of continuing work at the trucking company. Nobody in his right mind would just not show up at a job they'd had for less than a month without at least calling first.

"About four weeks"

Which sounds like he didn't work 30 days which I'm pretty sure is the required number of days you must be employed in New Jersey before being allowed to collect unemployment benefits.

You should always try to get unemployment even if you are fired, worst case scenario you lose in court but often judges will side with the employee on the he said/she said stuff.

He said the tone of Cini's texts were offensive, so he responded that he would collect unemployment.
Photographs of text messages Cini sent to the Burlington County Times show some of the communications between the two men:

Cini: "Rob, if you don't call me by 4 o'clock, I'm going to have to let you go. Everybody is working. You're the only one not answering your phone. Ridiculous, dude."

Campolongo: "Hey, you wanna fire me, fine. ... Look on the news and CNN, and you'll see why I couldn't call you. ... I'm ridiculous??? Well, it's after 4!!! ... I ACCEPT YOUR FIRING MY ASS!!!"

Cini: "Hey, Rob, just for your information, I was a cop for 15 years. ... My business surrounds emergency services. Out of the employees, you're the only (one) that didn't answer your phone. So yes, ridiculous it is. ... So yes, I take it very personally when you say you're going to work. And just so you know, we're in New York City, where real people are working and where there's real issues. Not some stupid (expletive) in Burlington County."

Campolongo: "OK ... I will collect."


What's Rob Campolongo's Fark handle?

I out right quit my job with zero notice (I walked out) and collected unemployment in New Jersey.. Believe it or not the State doesn't fark around with unemployment benefits.. They don't try to weasel their way out of it. If you have a right to collect you will get it.. My job was involved in a buyout and the new owners promised one thing and once we were on their payroll decided to pay us differently (lower wage) for a peroid of 6 weeks.. So I walked out because it was not what I agreed to and it was not the same rate of pay as the previous owner paid me.

The State investigated and completely sided with me..

Yep, I believe you.  Now, I'm not an expert... but from what I've heard text messaging (and the reason you're limited to 160 characters) goes across the band that basically was originally used to make calls happen.  Basically a band that would ping the tower and tell it you want to call 111-222-3333, it would contact 111-222-3333 and tell it you were calling, and so forth.
 
So all in all, if the tower was slammed and your actual service wasn't working... its THAT band that would be informing you that no lines were avialable.

Campolongo isn't acting like someone who got a last-minute call into a meeting. Let's say that the guy didn't get Cini's text until after 4 (which I still say is BS)--a normal person would have just called back and explained the situation. "Sorry, boss--didn't get any calls, I'm in Burlington County rescuing trapped victims because I'm the only one who can pilot the special boat they need." Everything could have been cleared up within a few minutes. But Campolongo decided to be an ass. He wanted to get fired.

Beyond that I'd say what he really wanted was the attention.  He wanted the world to know he's a "hero" and now a "martyr".  I applaud anyone who helps out during disasters, but you've got to admit... some of them do it for selfish reasons.  And this guy took that to a whole new level.

This.
I'm pretty sure if he had called his boss and explained to him what happened and apologized for not calling, he would have gotten his job back. But know he had to be an asshole, and know he is being an even bigger asshole by biatching about it to the media. Something tells me that this guy is just a plain everyday asshole.

I even had to post on the articles comment about that line. He says he's not playing the firefighter card but did a farking photo shoot for the article in full uniform at the firehouse.

Even the states that offer legal protection for the Volunteers when they're on calls or doing disaster response from being fired require you to notify your employer up front, and make them aware of why you're not going to be there prior to doing so.

Agreed. This guy's a wacker.

/TCA 50-1-307 prohibits Vol. Firefighters from being fired as a result of their being late or absent because of a response. TCA 50-1-309 allows a Volunteer Firefighter to leave work or school to respond on a call and not be disciplined, provided their profession isn't seperately regulated (i.e. a nurse cannot leave a patient)

New York and New Jersey do not get along. This is especially true with emergency services. The Volunteers up in Jersey have a reputation for being complete, unregulated morons, while New York has the reputation of being overly regulatory and arbirtary.

Jersey just NOW put through a bill to regulate their volunteer emergency services at the State level, which was met with cries of anguish and butthurt. This is the state where you hear about vollys losing their charter for having strippers and booze at their station while on duty.

Actually he used the correct "your" in that situation ("your firing of me" - firing is a noun that way), but, to be fair, I'd be amazed if he actually knew that.

My guess is he just wanted to leave his job in the most spectacularly passive-aggressive way possible, by trying to make his boss look like a jerk on a national stage.

Since this story is about the Philadelphia suburbs, I'm going to say "no, it's not that".

I think his point, though poorly phrased, was that while this guy was a volly in suburban New Jersey, the work he'd screwed out on involved issues of much larger scale supporting much larger emergency operations that were likely of greater regional and national consequence, yet this clown is acting like his boss is just too small-minded to understand how important his firefighting work is.

This douche gives the rest of us a bad name. The first thing they tell you when you join a volunteer department is that your regular job must always take precedence over the firefighting. Most volunteers will wake up in the middle of the night to respond to a call, yet still force themselves into work bright and early the next morning. Granted I didn't quite do so well during those storms, but I at least had the foresight to warn my boss that I would probably be quite busy and that I may call out on a vacation day if I was too tired to stomach the 5-6 hours of commute time this storm gifted me. With a little warning, most bosses are actually quite understanding.

You're right.. Pulled it right off the States PDF... So yeah.. He's butthurt...

To be eligible to receive unemployment benefits, your claim must be
VALID. This means you must meet one of the following requirements:
1. During your BASE PERIOD or during an ALTERNATIVE
BASE PERIOD you must have worked at least twenty (20)
BASE WEEKS in COVERED EMPLOYMENT,

PluckYew: Um what? Maybe you meant fired for cause?


Fired usually means it was something you did. As opposed to being laid off or downsized.

I'd have more sympathy if the work he blew off wasn't more important. This asshole was supposed to be transporting emergency generators to areas without power. It's not like he was trucking kale to Albuquerque.

Wants to be a real fireman, but obviously cannot, so he is a volunteer, which is fine, operative word being "volunteer".

Also FTFA "I'm one of the engineers that can drive it,"...so is this a boat or a train we are talking about? I have never heard of someone driving a boat called an engineer; Pilot or Captain, I thought the engineer handled..well the engines.
