Just to get something off my chest....
So I get laid off yesterday. They are relocating our office to the corporate headquarters. We will get a sevren's (however you spell that) package, but still have to report to work until mid March.
This couldn't have come at a worse time. New house, new car & load of debt later you're left feeling helpless. It is crazy to think that someone who is a thousand miles away has your family's future in their hands & could give a shit less.
Don't get me wrong. I HATE this job. But the paycheck makes it bearable. I don't mean to complain because I know there are millions of people going through the same thing accross the country. But the worst part is having to come here every day for another 2 months & put on happy face for these assholes.
I want to do nothing more but to get up & knock the shit out of this asshole who walks into the room & reads a statement about closing our doors & then asks if we have any questions....excuse me but can I have a second to let this sink in?
But what do you do? You can't storm out with your finger in the air yelling Fuck off. You can't be insubordinate & come to work when you feel like it. Either way you are terminated without sevrens & can't qualify for unemployment.
They did this to you & you can't do anything to get them back. I'm a big believer in do unto others as they do unto you. But I guess in this battle I'm screwed.
How do we turn this country around before we are all out of a job? They say it's getting better but everyone knows someone who has been effected by this shitty economy. It's like a fucking cancer!
Be strong. Keep your head up.
