LOL! Wednesday, October 28, 2009 / Velvet / 15 Comments I hated it from day one. And today was day, um, I don’t know 600? The day I got laid off. Ha! Top that!

Well, on the bright side, this means you can take some time to bring the puppies to Plain-oh 😉 lemmonex Wednesday, October 28, 2009 at 9:23 pm Yay! Or yay? Either way, you are out. I-66 Wednesday, October 28, 2009 at 9:25 pm Wow. I don’t even know what to say. Meghan Wednesday, October 28, 2009 at 9:36 pm Holy freaking hell. You have got to be kidding! Or, actually, given THAT job, maybe we all should have seen this coming. It makes some perverse kind of sense. Congrats AND I’m sorry. I think both are equally appropriate. Velvet (Post author) Wednesday, October 28, 2009 at 10:14 pm Stepford Wife – I know. The fucking Vortex. I would LOVE to come to Plano! That would be fun! Lemmies – True true. And I get unemployment and some piddly cash. I66 – Ha. Neither do I. Meghan – Oh, no, I’m not kidding. But they started getting really petty with everything, people were getting written up for all sorts of crazy stupid shit. They didn’t do that to me – which I would have thought would be the easier way, you know, instead of having to do a lay off, why not try to create some bullshit about how I was fucking up in some area or something. That would have saved them some money at least. Tyler Wednesday, October 28, 2009 at 10:32 pm Wow, um, Congrats?? Siryn Thursday, October 29, 2009 at 2:29 am Wow. Well, it’s freedom and it will pay unemployment for a while. I suppose life kind of sucked for them after the fire. But then, they just sucked to begin with. Pook Thursday, October 29, 2009 at 3:03 am Congrats! Now you can collect Unemployment! Trust me, a little extra is better than nothing, and you were this close to walking out on them, so Win-Win! I say celebrate! Shannon Thursday, October 29, 2009 at 8:58 am Congratulations?!?!?! Hey, but now you’re free during the day! Lunch sometime? Meghan Thursday, October 29, 2009 at 10:52 am Velvet, Velvet, Velvet. If they had done as you suggested, it would have required them to apply logic to the situation. And I do believe that if you’ve shown us anything about this circus/company it’s that there is no place for logic within it.

Do it. Miss you! Phil Monday, November 2, 2009 at 11:16 am Always better to get laid off than to quit, because they have to pay you. Guv’na tried for months to get laid off at this one place – he was ultimately successful, but it was the hardest work he’s ever done. Tacoma Tuesday, November 3, 2009 at 12:39 am The fact they fired you is even more evidence of what losers they are. Skip winter and go somewhere south for a few months. That’s what I would do (GOD, I need some sunshine. ANY at all) Uncle Keith Wednesday, November 4, 2009 at 11:12 am Sorry!
