    Well It's been a bad month...

    Have had a financial set backs the past two months from my gal's house eating money like it going out of style. The construction firm I have been with has been on shaky ground this past year and things have not been quite right. Needless to say I suspected it was going under next year we that day came early, yesterday we were told via text about 4pm that we should stay home today due to impending nasty weather which it was the roads are horrible because the conditions keep changing. But at 10am everyone got a text message say the company is folding and the doors are shutting as today.

    WTF it's like we are 65 personnel where is the 2 months written notice that your supposed to give. Great for union guys in company they will get farmed out via the hall but us Office management now are like ??? where did this come from? The week before Holidays, come now.

    been there myself, got walked out the door of a company in a downsize move that didn't see coming at all.

    and 2nd time got told having a down sizing but you can work for the next 2 months and then your out of a job.

    I don't know which is better being done cold turkey with working or having to go and work and be the walking dead at work when most know your out the door in 8 weeks.

    best of luck for you.

    Sorry to hear about your job man, hopefully something comes your way, could be an open window for some other opportunity, or un shelf your ticket and hit the books at your hall.

    I've been through both downsizing and mismanagement at different companies. Yea, it sucks but you can get through this, I did.

    Most of the places I've worked have been small companies, most of which had pretty poor management. It sucks when your boss brings his new custom built 4x4 off road camper to work, but he cant afford to pay your overtime or let along straight time. Or when a bunch of problems arise and the customer starts pointing fingers, the boss jumps on a plane to some tropical island for a week leaving you empty handed and having to deal with it unaware of the situation.

    Consider it a blessing in disguise...
