The kicking continues!

Friday, March 28th, 2008 | General

You know what’s a really great way to end a week that started with the cat dying?

Getting laid off!

Yay!!! What fun!

In theory, it’s “temporary,” it happened to several other people I work with and I got a severance package. But still. Shock. Anger.

If y’all excuse me, I’m gonna go hide in a cave somewhere for awhile.

Oh my god!!! That so sucks!

They say bad things happen in threes so watch out.

Well, technically this is #3. (Got bumped down to part-time last week. “Temporarily.” Who knew just how temporary that would end up being, though.)

Well, I wouldn’t have wound up in the job I’m in now if I hadn’t been fired unceremoniously and ignominiously last summer, so perhaps you’ve got a similar bump-up coming.

Get drunk this weekend and swear a lot. It’s an excellent catharsis.

Sorry to hear it…

Let’s go drink!

Yeah. Let’s go drink…at a concert! If you want me to go beat anyone there up, you just let me know. You know I’ll do it.

Drinks on my mom. 19 years as USM and they didn’t renew her contract for next year. God this sucks. Sorry Anne.

Okay, that’s counts as number 3, so things ought to get a whole lot better. I’ll bet HD will want to bring you back but they might have to compete with some better offers. Maybe we can sneak in a road trip before you are back on the job.

When’s the drinking? I want to help… with the drinking.

Good luck. I know this sucks…

I agree with Tony, though – I was also randomly and unexpectedly “let go” one Friday several years ago and it was the best thing ever.

Got my fingers crossed for you.

Anne–so sorry to hear about Cliff and your job! Let me know if there is anything I can do… I’ll be thinking about you!

I think some web conference drinking might be in order.

Severance? Bloody favoritism! They only turned me right-side up this morning!
