I'm the one who was let go after a blowup with my verbally abusive coworker. I'd been hired by the team lead as support staff, so I wasn't employed by or affiliated with their company - so even though I attended company events, I didn't receive company emails about them, but my team would tell me. So get this. Every year the company has a big event in June. One of my friends from the company was telling me about the upcoming event, and asked if I could come to the Happy Hour they have afterwards, bc everyone misses me. Office Happy Hours are a regular thing there, but I never knew about them because I didn't get the emails. I'd only find out if someone asked if I was going to one that night, and by then it was too late bc I'd already made plans. Come to find out, my coworker is the one who organizes them. Never mentioned it to me the whole time I was there.
