F'k that! March into the ofc and demand that they rehire u and pay u to stay home and fight w/ other grown men. Then once he calls and hangs up w/ security, start punching yourself in the face. Get all bloody and make sure to wreck the place. Then when security enters, beg the boss man to not hit u anymore. :D

Seriously though, that really sucks Sek. I wish u the best!

Sorry to hear SEK.Lots of people seem to be going through this; sorry you’re now part of the statistics.
Do what I did; take a week off; catch up on sleep; gather your thoughts et…then hit the bricks for a job.

took me 6 months to find a job. That sucked.

I remember an episode of Cheers when Norm walks into the bar and says in a deadpan, "Great, I'm unemployed", and someone says, "Sorry to hear that", and he says, "No- great! I'm unemployed! Gimme a beer."

Wrong you didn't do anything wrong don't refer to it as being fired.You were laid off like millions of us have. My thoughts are with you in this tough time.

I'm a little worried too, if fact, I have been since Oct. The economy has finally hit government-spending, i'm afraid. But my back up plan, may entail more money than I'm currently making, as well as control.

So you went from one job that's losing money to another job that's been in the red for years.


hope everything turns out well.
