    Unhappy A Very Sad Day Today.....

    My wife has worked for a major cosmetics company for about 15 years. Today was her last day on the job. She was a manager in their now defunct IT department.

    When she is sad, I'm sad and I have never seen her feeling so bad. She had just completed a major project for their inventory department over the last year. During that time she spent a great deal of time in New Jersey (we live in N.E. Ohio). Weeks at a time, come home for the weekend and fly back out Sunday nights. Spent so much time there we had to pay taxes in New Jersey and Ohio.

    We were told about a month ago so it's not like they walked up to her today with a pink slip, and yes, we have a very nice package they gave her. But it still hurts her to have put in all that effort, and then "Thanks for your 15 years, good luck."

    We will be OK. But right now, this moment, this day is very, very sad.

    That sucks, but the joys of unemployment are many.

    So sorry you are going through a hard time. I know she will find comfort in having more time to be with you at home, at least. Best to you both...

    I am in a very similar boat. Actually I was laid off from the IT department where I used to work. Now I am looking for a new job and it sucks... So far it has been two months of no work and I am starting to go stir crazy. At least now the job offers are starting to roll in.

    I appreciate the comments. lol justin82, yeah it was funny you mention that because while I was trying to write that post I started getting a bunch of pm's about another issue. A little tough to shift gears, but it does take your mind off of it.

    Now I'm not saying everybody start breaking the rules, hook feels bad. roflol. Just want to be clear.

    Best wishes to the two of you. I know something good will come of this. I went through a similar situation about a year ago, but today I'm glad it happened. Keep thinking positive, and positive things will happen.
