Well, I am now, for the first time in a long while, scared about losing my job. I normally don't post on the board while at work but, I am pretty shaken by this...[V] (In case you didn't guess, I work here) Don't really know why I posted this... I guess I just needed to go where "good" people are for some comfort.

That sucks FmJunkie! Truley. My thoughts are with you, good luck. (Just try to put it in perspective though, ok?)

Thanks Hielo. In my search for a positive spin on all this, I came up with this way of thinking: I would get a decent severance package (a few months of pay and my last bonus which equates to another few months of salary). I could then spend a few months of real quality time with my now 8 month old son before going back out into the world. In any event, I will have lost my job and not my life like some people I know and worked with. Of course, I could get lucky and the SHTF/apocalypse day comes before unemployment runs out...[;)]

I hope you signed a contract with a severance package clause in it, otherwise they don't have to give you squat. I found that out the hard way after working 11 years for the same company.
