Default So, I lost my job today

It was fairly sudden and only upper management was known about it. My immedate boss had no idea until 3 minutes before i did. It definitely sucks since I got to expand my mind in the relm of Linux/Webservers/Mysql Databases and the like; and for 2 guys running a company with over 180 people, i can only imagine how my boss is going to cope by himself.

But i can say that i've been fired, quit and laid off of jobs, and this is by far the easiest way to "Go".

Didn't you just get that one? Was it a proper firing or was it due to economic purposes?

Alberta is finally getting hit with the layoff bug.. Makes sense due to the fact Obama wants nothing to do with our "dirty oil".

We've been laying off weekly. I expect to see more tomorrow. Just hoping my number doesn't come up any time soon. Fun times.

Yay for a fixed income job that is purely dependent on my performance!

Oh, wait, I'm still broke...
