My job is being hit by the recession...
Posted 11 September 2009 - 09:13 AM
So I was pretty upset about this. Yes, I would still have a job, but I'm not sure I can afford this option and might have to look for something else.
So yesterday a co-worker of mine came over to our area and starts talking to another co-worker. They are both different roles, so they're not being affected by this. I'm hoping she didn't know I was sitting on the other side of our cube, rather than that she just didn't care. She starts saying that she was just in a meeting and there were two girls in there complaining about the situation we're being put in and saying well they didn't lose their job, I don't know why they're making such a big deal about this. This really bothered me. Yeah, I know I can't complain too much because I do still have a job and I know others out there have it much worse right now. I just though that was really insensitive to say that.
Anyway, thanks for listening, I just needed to vent about that.

I think since people can't possibly know how someone else is feeling (since they are not in their shoes), then they ought to keep their insensitive little opinions to themselves! She would be singing a different tune if it were HER position that was being affected by the news....but some people are just rude and oblivious, and that's just how they are, so try not to focus on her, and rather on what your back-up plan is going to be in the meantime. Try to keep your head high and I'm pulling for you!

When I lost my job people kept coming to me and saying "Oh it shouldn't have you, it should have been Jane Smith...she sucks at her job...you're so much better..." I think they thought they'd be making me feel better with that, but it actually made me feel worse that the company was keeping someone that everybody thought sucked. People don't think.
