… today I was laid off.
Last week, I was in Kansas, on vacation at the SCCA Solo National Championships. This morning, I went in to work.
There were signs and portents.
Sure enough, at 1:00 pm, I was informed that my services will no longer be needed. One of several let go as part of a roughly 10% RIF on the white-collar ranks.
What really stinks about the whole thing? Two people were hired into my department at the beginning of September. At the end of September, two people (myself and one other) were let go. No, the other wasn’t one of the new hires.
So, I’m “on the beach”, as they say in the radio business. Beating of the bushes started already.
More than that, I cannot say at this time.
