|06:46 pm - HOLY SHIT updated with further explanation|
I've just been laid off......
Ok so i've been my normal paranoid self thinking i had fucked something up.
And thats why no one had talked to me about a performance review or the like, since i hit my 1 year mark.
So when they called me in to her office and closed my door. I knew shit was hitting the fan as soon as the door closed.
Turns out the company has been taking a hit financially. One of our clients has contested a bill (very very very very large bill) and other companies are dicking us around.
They tried making ends meet but they can't afford to keep everyone.
I was the last one hired. So i'm the first one fired.
It was fairly surreal. My boss told me "i'm sorry." like 9 times.
They want to keep in good terms with me. They said i can come in whenever and get my stuff. I'm free to hold my gaming group on saturday if i want.
They talked about contracting at an hourly rate if work comes in.
But thats that. I'm getting a paycheck and 3 days for my unused vacation days.
My dad has put my loan on hold (what i have been working ongetting rid of.)
and told me to start on unemployment.
Not sure what i'm going to do. if i get a real job in the next month. i'm screwed on my trip to san diego.
Non-refundable tickets. And if i do get a job. i doubt that i'd be able to get the 4 days off for the trip.
So I gotta think about what i want to do. And I don't have a clue.
Current Mood: shocked
So you can move to San Diego now?

Most likely not since i've got other commitments until next year.
Namely i said i'd live with my brother.
And then there's the con i'm helping to run in january.

You okay? *hug*
Hmmm..everyone beat me for "awful", "That sucks", and "shit!" So I'll just say: at least you're not dead! lol ;)
Seriously, though. I think there's alot of people who understand your plight. It's just one of those things that I'd choose to consider as an oppertunity to do something better, or at least something different. Good Luck!
Owwwwwwww. And stuff. That totally sucks.
This is a bad season for jobs.

Geez, man...wish there was something I could do other than say sorry that shit happened to you and offer a *hug* Hang in there, and I sure hope you can find something new soon.
Room for improvement
Yeah, the situation sucks, but when you hit the bottom, the only place left to go is up.
Don't let the depression drag you down, and file for unemployment today! It takes a number of weeks for the request to be processed before you start getting anything. And don't get complacent either. It only lasts for a short time...

Hey, does this mean you're free now to join the syndicated crime ring the rest of your unemployed real-life freinds are contemplating creating? :P We still need a place to embezel money, maybe you know someone who can help there.

That sucks :( I really hope you can get something else pretty quickly. At least the parting was on good terms!

Sorry to hear about you getting laid off! I hope that you find good work soon, something you can be happy and secure with.
