Well the telecommunications company I work for is having layoffs today. No announcements to staff, but the rummor mill pegged it right. No one knows numbers, but they have already started the parade of people to the conference rooms to get the axe. Can't get into any of my network elements nor email....so I get to sit and wait to see if I get called.....I know God has a plan for me, but this waiting bites. Will keep my friends and family here posted on what happens. On the up side I keep in mind what Judge Schmale said in CaddyShack; "The world needs ditch diggers too son."

It is a bad sign when they cut off your network access... Good luck!

Man what a morning....of my group of eight, I was told we would lose 2. Watched one of my friends take it in the head, and then 20 min later they called me in...DOH! Oh well now am at home updating the old resume. Don't know how much I will be on here, but we will see what happens. I'd been at FOCAL since Aug 99, when I left teaching. I dont know if I will stay tech or go back to teaching or go to work with one of my neighbors who is an electrian. Just hate sitting at home on my butt. Well gonna go get the feelers out...and see what is out there..... Which sounds better? 1. Good morning and welcome to Walmart. 2. Would you like to supersize that?

I nolonger have any trouble telling people that I was in telecomm before the big dump,was making over 70k and now about 20. Thats ok,I only have 6 months of school left and they called me back two weeks ago and I got to tell them to get f*ed. On to bigger and better stuff,it's not fun but you will find you can a tuff SOB and thats the best skill of all.

Sorry I didn't see the thread in time... my advice would have been: START STEALING OFFICE SUPPLIES! I hope you did.
