Sorry to hear this. Sounds like your wife's luck with jobs is as bad as my wife's. Some of her greatest hits include working for a company that was shut down by the government because the executives were criminals - not only did she lose her job, but she also never got paid for the last two weeks she worked there. Another was when we returned from our honeymoon to a FedEx package on the porch containing a letter saying that her and her entire department had been laid off. The following Tuesday was 9/11.
I feel your pain. Best of luck to you both.
