Wow. The last two days have been incredibly difficult. We had a rocky year and will not make plan so people had to go. Unfortunately our general manager didnt have the balls to tell everyone that were being fired until yesterday, although he knew mid last week.. So 7 of 14 people in our small business packed up and left today. Unless you've worked for a small business you have no idea how emotionally draining it is to watch people leave after working so closely with them. I am a lucky one but have been told I will probably have to go by Jan 1. Its cool that I get some time to look for another job, but my motivation to perform and work hard so the company succeeds has gone to 0. I hope I can find another great job in the next two months that have benefits and something I enjoy Rant off.
