terracinque: (bridesmaid revisited)
[personal profile] terracinque
Today my boss told me that my layoff date has changed. Instead of losing my job on April 10th, it'll be May 11th. A whole nother month.

I'm not sure if I'm pleased. Of course the additional money is a Good Thing; by my calculations, if I'm frugal and don't live large, I can afford to be unemployed through the rest of 2002. I hope it won't come to that, but it's good to have that flexibility.

On the other hand, I'd already been through the bargaining, denial, etc. and was at peace with the knowledge I'd be unemployed (or in a new job) by April 11th. Now I have to rethink all my assumptions.

But it's not like I've been told they're not laying me off at all, so that's still hanging over my head.

I guess I just really want this to be over and done with, for good or ill.

But really, it would be shame if you weren't able to live large. Everyone should be livin' large

It's not as if I don't like livin' large. But until I know I'll have a regular income again, I need to suspend my license to ill.

You know me because of Kitten, I think. I think I met you at Dragoncon last year.

Yeah, it could have been worse. Everyone else I know who's been laid off (both at my company and at others) only had a few hours' notice. This is the longest hang time I've ever heard of.
