Laid off. :(

I got laid off on Friday. I knew it was coming, but it still smarts. :(

Anyone who's been to this blog before knows I WILL NOT be missing that damn company though!

Wanna know the shittiest part? I was four weeks shy of qualifying for unemployment. FOUR FRIGGIN' WEEKS. So now I have no job, no paycheck, no plan B. Sucks to be me.

Luckily, I have in my posession someone who is the BOMB-FREAKIN-DIGGITY of a hubby. :) He took me out Friday night and got me drunk. Very, very drunk. I felt a little better. Then he bought me presents. Felt another little bit better. I still feel like shit, but at least I'm out of bed. What more do you people want???

Cons:

  • No job.
  • No money.
  • Embarassed.
  • I hate packing.
  • Embarassed a little bit more.
  • Not enough hours to qualify for EI.
  • My plants will probably die.
  • No more free office supplies.
  • My suits will go to waste.
  • Eventually I'll run out of food.
  • My rent is due on the 1st.
  • Stay-at-home moms don't get coffee breaks.

Pros:

  • I NEVER HAVE TO GO BACK THERE AGAIN.
  • "Laid Off" doesn't carry the same stigma as "Fired".
  • I am now free to move to the Island.
  • I can go on job interviews whenever they'll have me.
  • I NEVER HAVE TO GO BACK THERE AGAIN.
  • I can go on vacation as planned, without taking time off work (lol).
  • I can work for a company who respects me, and pays me what I'm worth.
  • I NEVER HAVE TO GO BACK THERE AGAIN.
  • I can sun myself during the day, and send out resumes at night. Got bless the internet.
  • Less gas.
  • Less flourescent lighting.
  • I can wear flip-flops all day.
  • I won't be so tired at the end of the day.
  • I can concentrate on my family.
  • My house will be clean. Well, maybe.

This blows.

And the best pro of all - Your friend Dawn can call you during the day again :)

Sorry about getting laid off I know how much that sucks. Even if you hate where you work the paycheck is such a motivator.
