This was my cubicle this morning:

This is my cubicle tonight.

My position was eliminated today at 4:55 PM.

I think I’ll take tomorrow off.

  4. NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

    It really pisses me off to think your boss may have known for some time and that’s why she’s been weird. Because you could have been job hunting all that time.

    Best of luck and we will all be with you on this latest adventure. Should I pick a date again? That worked last time. November 2nd came to me, but I hope it’s sooner than that.

    I have no idea about what went on behind the scenes. No clue. I told her when I interviewed 3 1/2 years ago that my biggest strength is the same as my biggest weakness — loyalty.

    I’m loyal beyond what I should be. It’s a strength in relationships, but a weakness in that it can be detrimental to me. In this instance, apparently it was a detriment. Mostly, right now, I’m just so incredibly sad and disappointed. Just … so sad.

    Hopefully sooner than 11/2… hopefully sooner.

    Sad and disappointed. Just like the news I got the day after Christmas last Dec. It’s difficult. It still hurts. I hurt for you.
    Love you so much.

    ****
    Yep. Love you too.

    Oh no no no!! I know how you feel and I am so sorry, sweetie! Why would they let you go on a Monday?!? That’s low!

    Please give me a call if you need cheering up.

    ****
    Last day of the month… companies (almost) always let you go on the last day of the month.

    Just seeing your name in my comments cheers me up! 🙂

  7. I am so sorry! What a shock. I don’t know what to say, except I’m thinking of you, and that you and your job hunt will be in my prayers.

    ****
    Yes, an unexpected shock. What you wrote was perfect, I appreciate your prayers.

    ~Jammie J.

  8. Whaaaa????? WTF?!? Dirty rotten… booooooo!!! A pox on them!

    ****
    Now, now — harm none, remember? You made me smile, though. 🙂
    It was a shock and it hurts, but … what am I gonna do? It is what it is.

  9. This is a blessing in disguise. In this economy, nobody leaves a perfectly good job to go find another, but you’ve known that you needed to get out of there for some time. Now you’re free to find that next great something, and I know you will. Little consolation, perhaps, but my hugs only reach so far.

    Right. Exactly right. Every want ad I eyeballed was with the thought of, “Would this be less work or more work? Hmmm, more. Less pay or more pay? Hmmm, less.” Plus, interpersonally, I really, genuinely liked most all of the people where I worked… why would I risk the unknown when the known was OK?

    Ummm, I think I felt that and that definitely wasn’t a hug. 😛

    OH NO!!! Can they do that? Can you just not have notice like that??? Oh my gosh, I am so sorry and feel like kicking people for you! Wow, my stomach hurts about this. *hugs* I will think positive thoughts for you. 😦

    ****
    Sadly, yes, they can. California is an “at-will” employment state. I could have done the same to them, although it’s a double standard because generally no person ever does for bridge burning reasons. But companies do it all the time. (sigh) Thanks for the hugs and positive thoughts. I appreciate it.

  11. Holy crap! I’m so sorry! It really sucks when they do that. Sending prayers your way you find something better quickly.

    ****
    Yep, it really sucks… please send prayers, lots of them!

    ~Jammie J.

  12. Well, that’s shocking! I’m so sorry Jammie…Oh I hope you will find something better and very soon…It sounds like they kind of don’t know what they are doing there these days–maybe it is a good thing, in the long run, though I know it has to be horrible at the moment…..I send you hugs and White Light and all ;ositive thoughts for that something “better” to come your way!

    To answer your question…I believe there IS a list on the WALK OF FAME WEBSITE….And I think you can even find out the address of where any particular STAR is…I’ve never tried it, but I’m pretty sure that is where you would find all info about existing STARS.

    ****
    Oh, thank you!! You know, I could come up and try and help you with any computer questions you might have, or just visit(!!), now that I have the time! 🙂

    Love the hugs, positive thoughts and white light — much appreciated. 🙂

  13. Oh, so sorry. They hit me on a Monday also – guess they wanted to start a new month clean.
    Keep swimming.

    ****
    Yep, last day of the month terminations really suck.
    I swam yesterday and today… I love daytime swims. 🙂
