Another briefcase in another hall

I just got laid off.

I got the speech about how good I am and how this is a business decision, etc, etc and soforth. No snarking on my evil Republican bosses, please. Though two weeks notice so I could apply for something else from a position of strength would have been nice, they were on the whole quite reasonable and seemed to feel bad. The loud smiley partner offered me a glowing reference. That should make me feel better as people tend to like loud smiley people.

Naturally, my closest friend in the office hid in her office and didn't say goodbye. Sucks but typical.

If anyone knows of anybody hiring in Washington DC, please let me know.

Oh, sh*t.

Get even and do good at the same time. Go raise money for Democrats running against you former clients.

Damn, that sucks. If they didn't give you two weeks did they at least give you some severance pay? Sorry to hear about this. I hope it turns out to be the prelude to an even better job.

Hi

So sorry to hear about the bad news. We are all wishing you good luck. (I heard about your blog through a Philocrites link.)

I'm sorry. I hope you find a new job by this weekend, because you are that cool, smart, and capable.

Oh, man. Keep your chin up; I'll light a candle for you that you find something more rewarding (on all fronts) soonest.

Well, poop. Been there, bought the tee-shirt, it sucks.

Hope things go well for you.

PeaceBang said...

oh man, I just read this. I'm so sorry. And don't think you can stop me from hating on your evil Republican bosses. I just feel like I want to right now.

E-me a resume, okay? If you want. Remember, I'm still in the Jewish mafia and we're all about connections.

Thanks, everybody.

Hi CC,

Sorry to hear about your situation. I tried Washingtonjobs.com but it was redirected to the Washington Post's online jobsearch.

Oops that first link should have gone here.
