god(with a little g) hates me

I got fired yesterday. Never got fired before, I guess so be it. Then as I was cutting grass, I ran over the leash of the puppy. She's fine, but the mower is jacked. Wire and a spinning blade just don't seem to mix.

Again, so be it.

So I tried to cancel the long distance on my phone today and they were going to charge me 5 bucks to do it.

5 bucks to cancel!!!

I'm just complaining.

Sorry.

Isn't that always the way, things happen in 3's. Well try to be possative & hopefully a new job will come your way soon, the mower-well could have been worse I guess. As for the $5 cancellation fee that is just rediculas. Sorry you are having a crappy time

Sorry to hear that. It's a hard time to lose a job for sure. I hope it all works out for you in the long run, and good to hear the puppy's ok!

Maybe take some time to go wheelin' - then regroup and go get em!

we all need to vent from time to time. Just remember, things can only get better. When a door closes, a window opens. Just don't jump out of it and you should be fine. If bad things come in 3's then you're done. God (Big G) Bless

Holy Crap. That right there is a good example of why it's important for me to slow down and read the post, not just scan it. I missed the words "the leash of"

Getting fired has been the best thing that's ever happened to me. All three times. I expect you will find the same.

(Hope my boss doesn't read this post.)

You're not alone. I've received notification that my job is being eliminated, and I still have the jacked up dog leash in my garage. Mine was a vinyl coated cable. The thing got twisted up under all three blades and the vinyl coating got melted into globs. I ended up removing the blades and scraping the vinyl/cable from the spindles. Good luck, I'm with ya.

Been down that road before too about 3 years ago.... it's a real bummer at first, but got to play Mr. Mom for about 3 month before another job came along, with better pay and better hours.... ya might not think so now... I certainally didn't then, but you'll look back down the road and be thankful it happened.

Caught in a downsizing myself a few years back. Little tough at the beginning but keeping positive helped alot. And realizing you are not alone in your search for new employment is important too.

Many areas have organizations where you can go to get information on jobs, resume writing and just general support. It's also a time to people network (I hated that part ) but it's an important part of the process and can be quite beneficial.

The beauty of the Internet too is you can search and apply for jobs any time of the day. Less actual knocking on doors.

Good luck!!

Sorry to hear that AD.

On the bright side you still have a puppy and ducks. If things get real bad eat the ducks first...................then the puppy.

Well... My grandfather had a saying that fit every situation. I think in this instance he'd say "Don't sweat the petty things and don't pet the sweaty things".

Your boss is just pissed off because Micheal Jackson died and had to take it out on someone.

Things will turn around! Good luck and stay thirsty my friend.

If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.

That was hugely sarcastic. I always find solace in the words of the young poet Beck at times like this.

From Cyanide Breathmint

When they want you to cry
Leap up into the sky
When they suck your mind
Like a pigeon you'll fly
I know, I know
It's the positive people
Running from their time
Looking for some feeling…
