You probably all know a bout my acute allergic reaction last wednesday...if not, you can read my blog :http://gosh-makeup.blogspot.com/2010/08 ... there.html
today i had itching on my face and some red flecks appeared, so i took another pil, just in case.
When I got home, sid called me from his pareents hous(i stayed at home, because i was tired), and he told me i had to call my mom because her job burned down??
So i called and my parents just got home from the fire, and my dad told me everything that had happened. This is the store my mom works and where i have worked for yrs aswell. My mom has seen many diff bosses and has been there from the beginnening..mb about 15+ yrs.
Anyway, apparantly my mom had to work today, but she got to go home early, because my dad had a day off.
That/this afternoon, there was a shortcut or something, and a fire started on the ceiling or upstairs(theres also an appartment above). Very very soon, they just got all the customers out, the ceiling just collapsed.
My dad tole me the whole store has burned and collapsed inc,l the licquorstore next door and the appartment was still burning.
I know everyone involved and i feel really sad about it and worried ofcourse. I knwo the people who own the building(the 2 stores), those were the previous bosses(my mom worked for them aswell), and they JUSt went on a vacation. My old boss was there when it happened and they just got out. everything personal was still inside. One collegue had all of her paperwork there because she was going on vacation this wedndesday, she lost all her cards, pasport, etc. The neighbours from the liqcuourstore are also ok. The womand and man are so sweet and nice, i really hope they have good insurance.
And ofcourse, my mom lost her job...im not sure what will happen with her income, but the bosses wife(also someone i know) said it will probably be insured.
My mom is pretty shaken, especially because she was supposed to be working when it happened. I feel really weird. Part of that could be the medicines, lo, but also, ive known that store for YEARS. I even worked there a few years and helped out before those years with stocktake and such. I feel so sorry for the boss and exbosses. I hope verything will work out..but it feels just unreal. I cant even begin to picture that part of the town without those 2 stores.
