“Can we have a meeting at about 3:30?”
That’s what my boss said this past Friday. I had this creeping feeling it was not to be a good meeting. Not that I had done anything wrong, my job is pretty simple (graphic design) but I just had that feeling you know. And at 3:30 we sat down, he says “I’m gonna have to let you go.” I was a bit shocked but kind of understood his perspective as a small business owner. He didn’t have the work coming in to sustain an employee so he had to do it. The only thing that gets under my skin, is that if he knew it was coming (which he told me he did), why didn’t he warn me sooner? He knows I have 3 kids at home and leaving me without a job is a HUGE inconvenience. I could have jumped down to 30 hours a week or something and spent 10 hours looking.
But whatever I guess, things happen. I’ve already applied at a couple places, but I’m really trying this time to get “that job” I can stick with for the next 20-30 years if you know what I mean. This 1 year here, 5 years over here stuff isn’t working anymore. I guess it’s off to the unemployment line in the meantime….
