Because I would not join them in drinking, chasing women, smoking and cussing they decided that I do not belong.

    Another part of my not fitting in is me; I do not show myself friendly to win friends. Although I am easy going I will not go out of my way to be overtly friendly and I tend to put some people off that way. I have had people in my church come up to me after they get the opportunity to get to know me and tell me that they thought I was the meanest person in the church.

    They would love to fire me but I am good at my job and they have had trouble laying the paper trail that they need to fire in this company. They could not write me up for carrying because it is not posted in any of the company rules.
    I'm guessing that they don't like "straight shooters" which most of us are. At least in the moral sense.

    It is unfortunate that they flipped on you like that. And I thought women were bad at conspiring in the workplace (not a sexist remark - statistics).

    I might have also said "is there anything you want me to tell your next of kin if something happens?" kinda make them squirm.
