    I'm getting laid off next Friday.

    Right as all the TF stuff starts hitting, and about a week before my birthday.

    Assholes.

    I'm sorry to hear that, Jiggs.

    I'm sure you'll land on your feet. What was the reason? Staffing cut backs?

    Supposedly it is because we are carrying too much inventory at the end of the fiscal year, along with our business becoming 'increasingly seasonal', so production rates will be dropped for three or four months to help lower inventory. All departments will be affected, and I drew the short straw.

    Fuckin' sucks, but on the plus side it should only be for a couple of months, and I'll be one of the first ones called back.

    And I'll definitely be getting unemployment, so I'll probably just chill for a while. I've always said if this ever happens, I'll settle down and concentrate on my writing for a while, so I guess now is a good time.

    The way companies treat people just sucks now. Keep in mind that this company just moved one of our other plants to China. Yet they still advertise on NASCAR and scream how American they are.

    Plus, they have all these mealy-mouth excuses about how we are having to convert a lot of our products to conform to California emissions laws. As if their lobbyists haven't been fighting it for years. They knew it was coming.

    They've even used weather patterns as excuses before.

    The thing that really pissed me off was that we have this big-balls, hot-shot division head, who acts like he is the big dog and the general of the corporate army. He flew down in his private jet to give the news.

    Only, when we got in the meeting he wouldn't say a word until the plant manager didn't know the answer to a question, so he asked the division head, and this motherfucker didn't even have the balls to stand up and face us. He just sat in his chair and talked over his shoulder to us. Chicken shit.

    Anyways, on the plus side, the milf did throw some awesome stuff on me because she was upset that I was leaving.

    Oh, well.

    Hakuna Matata.

    OUCH! I "quit" one job when I heard before hand they were closing the site and laying people off who didn't "voluntarily resign." And, to top it off, it was with a company who contracted with MICROSOFT!!

    Mr. Jiggles, GOOD LUCK in your job hunt.

    I just want to finally see what Jiggles looks like. Maybe that's how he can celebrate his new found time off.

    You know, I was really trying to feel bad for you until that little fact came up. Lucky SOB... *grumble*



    Seriously, though- my condolences on being unfairly ousted and I hope something better comes along.
