    Laid Off

    One day before my birthday, my entire department, including my manager, were laid off a short time after lunch today. It was deemed a "business decision" but it's really a case of our jobs being outsourced to some company in Florida. Guess they had to save money somehow.

    I kind of knew it was coming, and even mentioned it today in a PM to a fellow linker, and sure as shit we all got canned today. Unreal.

    Happy Birthday to me.

    Fuck. So sorry to here of this, bro. On the bright side, at this point in the year, some outfits are hiring for the holidays. Perhaps you can catch on at one of these positions, even if it is temporary.

    Keep your chin up, man.

    Tell me about it.

    I've been studying to get my Insurance Agent's License, having failed the exam twice already. It was my goal for 2007, or the most important goal I should say, so at least I have more time to crack the books.

    So there is a positive to this shit. But it does hurt a bit, I can't lie. I'm a very proud guy, and I've got the whole blue collar attitude. I didn't like what I did, but I loved having a job.

    Hopefully I'll find something in the near future.

    Best thing you can do is use this as motivation to get that license. Best of luck, i'm sure it'll change.

    Well, it's Thursday, so tomorrow fill for unemployment because it's your money anyway. Then spend the weekend freaking out and feeling like crap and then Monday start looking for work.

    I suggest this because this way you won't be as pissed off when you look for work. If you're not pissed off you can think better, that way you're at the top of your game.

    You're a smart dude, you should be okay.

    Hey Sucka. I'm so sorry to hear that. I know what your going through. I worked for a company for 15 years, then they shut down the entire plant, moving all the jobs to Mexico. It was a bitter pill, not just for losing the job, but also having lives, friendships, and working relationships torn apart. Thankfully things worked out but I was pissed for a long time. I had to learn to move on see the bright side and there was a big one. As that door shut, another one opened and it gave me hope that things bigger than I at play.

    I hope that a door opens for you soon.
