The comment was “get the boys ready to kick some butt this weekend.”. McCarthy said the comment was something that included "lay an egg". Sad state of affairs when a coach has such thin skin, and doesn't care that his comment to adminstrators got the worker and family man fired.

It got so bad at Grafton Administrator's office, that whenever Nancy Billings would walk by her boss Russell Connor, she would hold a white piece of paper over her breast. The constant staring by Connor whenever he spoke with Billings. This led Billings to file a sexual harrasment suit against the City of Grafton Massachussetts where she work. But once the suit was file Connor saw an opthamologist, and was diagnosed with alternating intermittent exotropia - a condition that causes the eyes to wander and not maintain focus. A jury has no decided, that Connor's condition caused the problem, and it was not sexual harassment.

St. Luke’s Cornwall Hospital, of Newburgh, NY has stopped taking SEIU (Union) 1199’s National Benefit Fund health insurance just before the hospital’s 800 or so service and tech employees were scheduled to switch to it, even though the change had been negotiated into the 2004 contract, union officials said. According to a recordonline.com story. One worker said “It’s insulting to work at a hospital you can’t get sick in!"
The hospital stopped accepting the plan, accessed through Group Health Inc., because payments are chronically late and service is poor.
Gee...aren't all Health insurance Payments slow. Not to mention subscribers always receiving an incorrect EOB, and having to call a centralized location; then speak with someone who doesn't have all the information at hand; only to get off the phone knowing it will take months to solve this issue- hopefully before your bill is turned over to collection!
