Today was my last day

Recommended Posts

Well, today was my last day of work. It was so emotional for me. I hated leaving all of the wonderful people I worked with for more than 20 years. The funny part was HR collected my Nextel phone, laptop, keys and ID badge at 10:00 this morning but the HR lady said she didn't care what time I left so I dodged the security guys and took many photos with my friends before I left. I am kind of disappointed that a couple of the girls I have worked with for such a long time, and knew about this for the past two weeks, did not even bother to take me to lunch or get a card. One department in the building actually put on a big potluck for us. Two of us were let go and the new outsourcing company made one an offer. Of course he is the lowest paid so that is why he received an offer.

 

I however, did get a non-paying job at a consignment shop. I want to learn the business and maybe open my own shop. I don't want to jeopardize my unemployment, so I am doing it without pay. I did get a nice severance package from my employer, so I think all will be ok for a while. I guess I just have to figure out what I want to do when I grow up! No more computer work though.

I'm sorry about your job. It's good that some people did do something for you.

But when one door closes another one opens. You can do anything you want to as long as you believe in yourself.

Good luck with everything.

I know the feeling. Both the FI and I are dealers in the casino's. Both of our company's are talking lay offs. We just refinanced our house and have the wedding in 6 months. It's very scarey. It's not like you can walk out the door and find a job making 50K a year easily anymore. At least they gave you a nice package. I'm a firm believer of god doesn't give you anything more then you can handle. But sometimes I wanna ask, are you really sure I can handle this?!?!

 

Best of luck Syl. Maybe this is a blessing in disguise for you to open you own business!!

I am really sorry to hear that. All the city workers in Chicago are worried about being laid off or bumped out of their jobs. We have to take three non paid days around the holidays. My fiance is trying to be a Fireman and he has this test that he is having a hard time passing the test. If he fails one more time he will be fired and that is stressful in it's self. I hope that you will be able to start your business and do all those things that you wanted to. You can look at it in one of two ways. That it is an end of a job or a start to a new life. I will send up a prayer for you.

Syl,

I am really sorry to hear that you lost your job.

 

But as the previous posters said.... this really could be a blessing in disguise.

 

Good luck in your new adventures in retail....

 

All the best!

Thanks everyone for the words of encouragement. My DH is having surgery today so I am sitting in the waiting room reading and planning my new business venture! This is going to be a lot of work, but fun! You girls (and guys) keep me going and keep me positive. I don't know what I would do without my BDW girls (and guys).
