I'm getting laid off

My supervisor called about an hour ago and told me I’m getting laid off tomorrow. I’m not too upset over this…the company I work(ed) for was very quickly going down the drain so this lay off was expected. I don’t look forward to finding a new job considering what the market is like these days, but at least my severence pay will keep me going for a few months.

Hey, the nice thing about this is that I’ll have more time to spend here :slight_smile: . 0.01 posts a day is pitiful!

Sorry to hear you’re getting laid-off, Convict. But on the other hand, at least you’re getting severance pay. My last “parting gift” was a printer–a very nice printer, to be sure—but not a real means of support.

Wow… you may be in contention for the title “Lord of Lurkers”.

Good luck. I got laid off about 1.5 years ago, and have been steadily temping every since. Not bad, but dull.

I am sorry to hear that, Convict. I hope you can get new employment soon.

I’m also sorry to hear that, Convict. But, you seem to have a great attitude and I’m sure when it’s all said and done, you’ll land squarely on your feet. And, probably with a much better job!

Best of luck to you. :slight_smile:

That is so wrong. It is always the convicts that are first to go. Hey, you paid your debt to society, why must they always single you out?:slight_smile:

Sorry to hear you are being laid off, good luck with your new job.

That’s sucky that you were laid off, but it’s great you have such a good attitude about it. I got laid off a few months ago for a little while as well, and it did in fact get my post count up from 0.00 to 0.01 posts per day. Baby steps.
