Dick boss says I quit because I no called/no showed, but I did call and I did show up
Hello, not sure if you can help me or not. It is 3 in the morning and I apologize for being too tired/lazy at the moment to thoroughly look through your website to see if this question has been asked or if you have already answered it.
I live in Colorado and worked for **cell phone company name deleted** for 90 days, until yesterday. I was rarely ever late and have never called in.
Yesterday 1/30/2015 I was scheduled to work 12:30pm-9pm. I woke up at 7 to take my daughter to school and decided to take an hour nap before work from 11 am to 12 pm. I over slept until 1:30 pm. I called my job to let my boss know what had happened (who is a dick and the type of person I frequently asked myself, how did he get his position?). My boss was not in the store, so I spoke to a coworker. I then went to work and clocked in around 2pm.
My boss walks in and asks to speak with me. He tells me, and I quote, "you no called no showed, so you're basically giving me your job. BUT, we were going to let you go today anyways. The company decided to go in a different direction."
So I guess my question is, did I really quit? Seeing as I did call and did show up.
I want to file for unemployment, is this still possible for me? I'm sure that he is going to say I quit. Is there anything I can do to appeal whether I quit or, was let go?
I have a wife and daughter to provide for and the fact that he did it so nonchalant, without any sympathy, really hurts me.
I just don't know what to do or where to start. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. Please let me know either way if you can offer any help/advice.
