Got laid off but Jeep still makes me smile!
 
Due to our company downsizing 500 Hospital reps were laid off last Tuesday. However as I went to the career placement service I still smiled the whole drive in my Jeep. Sometimes it is the simple things that make us happy. I am just glad I got "The Hulk" modded just like I wanted (Paid in cash) and can look for a job guilt(debt) free. lol. I am sure Hulk will get me to the interviews on time no matter what kind of weather!

Keep your head up and view it as an opportunity. When one door closes another one opens.

I think that saying is true. As I stood in line at the porta-potty, I noticed people entering with a pained urgent look on their faces then the door closed. At the same time the next door opened and the person had a smile and a look of relief like a load was taken off.

Boosta 11-23-2010 07:33 AM

I will take it as an opportunity. Maybe the Discovery channel will green light a show where I drive my JKU around the world meeting all races of people and showing the durability and versatility! LOL!

daggo66 11-23-2010 07:55 AM

I would advise not getting a job in that building. :eek:

Boosta 12-09-2010 11:49 PM

Keeping a positive attitude (All due to the JEEP) has opened another door. I got a new job and to top it off their car policy is "forcing" me to upgrade to a 2011 to stay compliant! Wow. Just 4months ago I bought the The Hulk , then lost a job and got another one 3 weeks later and now I will be getting The ....... haven't figured out a cool name yet. lol. Stay positive and good things will happen.

My company has a similar vehicle reimbursement policy. It doesn't force you to get a new vehicle, it just has a slightly better return percentage. In my case it's not enough to justify the purchase of a new vehicle.

Congratulations on the new job and best of all the new Jeep!

Congrats Boosta!! No more Rescue Green for you though. :(

BlackMountain 12-10-2010 09:35 AM

Lol, congrats boosta. I like how you named your car "The Hulk".

I did the same thing. I named mine "The Dark Knight"
