Layoff probable and imminent!

September 18th, 2008 at 09:42 am

I just heard from AS, who just had a private chat with one of her bosses.

It sounds like she will get laid off, and soon! Hooray!

The boss was very nice; she said AS was on her list of possible layoffs, but that she could spare a couple people because she'd saved more money than she needed to. She said she'd heard that AS might not be happy with her job and would want to move on soon, and was there anything she could do to change that? AS said probably not. The boss said she'd made her decisions a little easier and thanked her.

If only all people at her job were this nice and clear about things, she probably wouldn't want to leave this bad! But anyway, it's a good situation, because she was able to say in not-so-many words, Please lay me off. And her boss was able to imply that she would make it so.

It's not official yet, but it sounds like it will happen, and that it will be announced before we go on vacation.

She'll only get one week of severance pay, but at least she'll qualify for unemployment, which should cover health care and keep us from cutting back on anything except extra debt repay. That's a load off our minds! And this would mean AS could afford to do some volunteer work on spec, which is one way to maybe get a job in the field she wants.
