freedom's just another word for nothin' left to lose

Lost my job today. Laid off. Just like that.

But you know what? I don't feel all that badly about it.

An opportunity for growth, I guess.

Doors closing, windows opening and all that.



  1. Ultra shitty.

    But a significant proportion of the population of Iowa is pulling for you!

  2. Bloody 'ell. Sorry, VV - good luck finding something better!

  3. WORDS OF ADVICE:If the man gets you down, then you're just in a better position to give him a sharp uppercut to the groin.

    Last time I got laid off, it was about a week's worth of notice that the company was going bankrupt. Such dire straights that they couldn't even afford to pay our final paychecks. So I struck them a deal and upgraded my computer in exchange, just so I could be certain I was going to get something out of the deal.

    So it's good to see that you're seeing a silver lining. But damn, you're having a bad run of worse luck these days. I'd ask if you wanted to have lunch next week, but that might just make things worse...

    That and I rarely wake up before noon.

  4. blessing in disguise, kiddo, blessing in disguise. contact the lab if you require, you know, booze. or food.

    and maybe, you can pull that faye dunaway thing you've always fantasized about.

  5. Faye Dunaway thing? Terrorizing her daughter with a coat hanger? Wait, maybe I should check that link.

    Best of luck, double-vee, although I'm sure it won't be needed and you can probably delete this whole post sooner than you think.

  6. I feel for you. If there is anything I can do to help, let me know.

  7. Same thing happened to me last month and I'm still looking - don't let that discourage you, I'm here in the Springs where the job situation SUCKS (I'd be employed now if I lived in Denver!).

    Hang in there and good luck!
