    Unemployment!

    Hello All,

    This morning was not one of my best! Or it could turn out to be a great day! I'll have to wait and see. When I went into the office this morning, I was met by the GM and HR Manager who informed me that because of the downturn in the market they were eliminating my position!

    If anyone knows of any opportunities in the Charlotte and/or Hickory NC area please let me know!

    Ed, think of it as an opportunity in the raw. Sorry to hear of this, sounds like they blindsided you. Happened to my brother about ten years ago, he was bummed for about a week, spent a year working on his place, found a job he has held since then and has never looked back. Here's hoping that is what you want and find.

    Ed sorry to here that....I don't know your situation, but I was "let go" a few years ago and it was the best thing that happened to me. It made me realize that I needed to finally go back and finish my BS degree. I did that in just under a year and got at great job right away...that was 4 years ago and I'm still there. Sometimes what seems like a bad thing can become a great thing. Hope your experience becomes great too!

    Ed, I dropped you a PM as well, but opportunities Do happen for a reason. Look for the silver lining and think of all the shop time you've got right now!

    Dear Ed,

    Yikes! It's a moment we all dread, and one many of us (including me) have been through. Hang in there, there's light at the end of the tunnel, even if it seems dark. One time, when I was going through it, I made some joke, and a Brit friend said "At least you haven't lost your sense of irony." I just said "hey, I'm from california, I'm used to having the ground shifting beneath my feet..."

    It's tough, but keep your chin up, things will get better...

    Thanks,

    Bill

    Ed,
    Tod once again has said the most with the least. He's our Abe Lincoln.

    Keep your head up and eyes open. Something better will come along.
