Losing Our Job














Yep, it happened to me.  As of the first of April, I'm officially downsized.

Hmmm. I can interpret that as "you're losing five pounds and a size in your jeans", or "you're losing 200 lbs of ugly racist".

Either way, I'll worry about you until we get better news.

Oh no! Sorry to hear that, friend.

Never good news, hope your search is short and fruitful.

I do not understand the term that you are "downsized". Hope you still have the money that your mom left especially for you.

Ginny, in this case, "downsized" means that my weekly hours will be cut, from 40 to 20. After a couple of days of mad scrambling, I have registered with Unemployment (I may be eligible for partial unemployment)and the local Job Bank and have started applying for jobs.

And I will tell you what, if you think applying for jobs sucked in the old days, the on-line job application process is a brand new fresh hell. But I'll get through it.

So sorry to hear this. If karma is real, you've earned a big break.

Sending good thoughts your way that you find something quickly and painlessly!

Gosh I'm sorry. That really sucks. It's happened to me before so I know how it can make you feel. And boy do I know about those online applications! But speaking as one who has been laid off three times now (or is it four?) there is work to be found out there. Tell everyone you know that you are looking--the perfect job might come from the strangest connection. Best of luck in your search!

booo.. hiss.. But I will just focus on the fact that this most likely means that better things are on the way.
