    Default Horrible day

    Today I lost the best job I ever had. I'd been working there one year as of yesterday and today I got laid off. I am getting a decent severance package and am on recall status but it still saddens me. My company is struggling and several other people got the axe today too.

    Anyway... I'm going to spend tonight cuddling with Herschel and eating copious amounts of ice cream.

    Oh no...I'm sorry to hear that. At least you got a severance package though, It would be worse to have nothing to live off of. Herschel will cheer you up (ice cream doesn't hurt either!)

    I'm sorry to hear that...I got laid off from my dream job in 2010 and I know it's hard and heartbreaking.
    Hopefully something bigger and better will come along for you.


    Cheerio mates!

    I came home and filed my unemployment immediately. I am looking into working as a poker dealer again since a little casino opened near me. I enjoyed that work. Just doubt the benefits will be nearly as good.

    That's tough....but something better must be just around the corner......until then extra time with Herschel sounds like a plan.

    My goal in life is to be as good a person as my dog thinks I am ~ author unknown

    Thanks all!

    Apparently Herschel thinks extremely loud snoring is the best thing for mommy right now. Funny thing is he might just be right lol.

    Sorry you lost your job...gonna cross my fingers, toes and eyes you find another one soon! But on the bright side...what kind of ice cream are you going to have? Rainbow sherbet, coconut pineapple, rocky road, chocolate chip mint? The possibilities are endless. When I was a kid my mom and sister use to take me to get ice cream when it was just a nickle a scoop.

    I'm so sorry! I hope you find an even better best job ever soon. I'm sure Herschel doesn't mind having this extra time to serenade you with his snoring.
