    I just found out that my mom, my best friend, his wife, her mother, and his sister all got laid off for 9 weeks. They all work for an engine maker. I need some cheering up.

    Uh, don't take Metal Ryde's advice.

    Anything in the Auto industry is tough right now. Hopefully they will find something soon. Best of wishes to them.

    Will do! I can't do anything else but worry. It's not like people can just go get a job nowadays.... I am thankful to have a job in the drug store industry. People will always need drugs.

    They got laid off for nine weeks, as in they will have work again in about two months and will have something to go back to? Not the end of the world.

    Summer vacation rocks, yo.

    There is no guarantee that the plant will even reopen. As of Wednesday, it's closed. Talking about Cummins...midrange engine maker.

    That's a lot of ladies now out of work. Why not put on your best pimping gear and see how much they can make on the street?

    Sweet idea, I just found $10 under the couch cushions last night! Now I know what I'm spending it on!

    Seriously though, that absolutely sucks, dude. Hopefully they'll be able to return to work shortly and are able to collect unemployment in the meantime.
