When your company announces mass layoffs, and you think you're safe because of all the retirement buyouts in your department, but then you hear one of the executives in a big meeting mentioning your department as an example of one that could be eliminated and taken on by others with the new strategy.

Woof. Been there before, minus the 'hearing an executive call out my department' part. Definitely optimistic with the voluntary retirement step, then they come for some anyway, but you're not one of them because you're not a lazy slob who falls asleep at their desk like those guys, then a few months later, they come back, but you're not one because one of your coworkers quit before layoffs struck, then they come back a few months later and you start seeing them walk out senior people who you thought were critical to the operation and you're like "what the **** is going on". Then at 11am, you assume you're good because everything has slowed down and you haven't seen anyone else getting walked out. Then your boss walks up behind you: "hey can you come talk to me for a minute". Then by 12 pm you're pounding beers at the bar because you're unemployed.

As long as they give you severance, won't deny unemployment, and you can either find another job due to skillset or are willing to move to where the jobs are, funemployment isn't too bad.

Best of luck dude, that **** ****ing blows. Hopefully you can ride it out though.

Maybe Trump will give them a tax break and they'll see the error of their ways and they'll trickle all that tasty golden juice down to you. I hear that's how it works in the real world. MBA's and accountants love giving people jobs.

I think their severance package is just yeeting us off the property with a catapult.

Kind of funny that years ago they had an escalation of cuts to protect jobs as a very last option. Now all those little things they would cut during lean times have become the norm and they shed jobs at the drop of a hat.

I just hope they know I brought my stapler from home. It's a red Swingline.

Strong economy. Probably strongest in ever. No layoffs. It's all a hoax.
Sales are good, but shareholders say profit still isn't high enough. Cut a bunch of jobs to boost profit, cash out stock, get bonuses and bail.

Well my wife’s car got totaled tonight and I’m home for a couple of days but my truck is in Fort Lauderdale so we have no car. That’s fun. Another good bit of fun is when they do actually total her car, I’ll still be in Fort Lauderdale and she will have to go buy a new car on her own. Also lots of fun. At least my life is stress free at the moment.

Oh no. You might come back home to a Mustang Mach E in your driveway.

Or worse.


...AN FCA PRODUCT.


Guess I had a seizure or sumshit. Was framing a wall and went upstairs, yelled and hit the floor. Really is a curse.
****, man.

On the bright side maybe that qualifies you to be Zach Braff's quintessential manic pixie dream girl.

How the hell do you guys only have 2 cars?

I'm trying to get down to 3 before the new house and I doubt that will happen

My dad has some form of epilepsy. Was pretty scary before they figured out the right medication and he hasn't had an episode in a few years now. Lucky for us he's willing to take medication for it since he's a Christian Scientist.

Not sure how yours went but his would just be that he would lose consciousness for a few seconds. Not good when you're walking in the street or taking a shower. Luckily it never happened while he was driving.

They also used to always be preceded by "auras" which is basically a long bout of "deja vu" feeling along with anxiety. Not sure if you felt anything like that but it's at least an indicator that something might be coming.

Hope you're able to get it figured out and managed. That **** is ****ing scary. When it first happened to him, he was standing on a curb. He fell face-first into the asphalt and blood start gushing out of his ear. I was 100% certain he had just died right in front of me. "Luckily" it was just from his jaw breaking into the ground that made all the blood pour out of his ear.

Gonzo, how many beers do you figure you have per night? I'm not gonna judge you, I'm just want to make sure you don't go cold turkey and kill yourself from the blue devils.

I got off the sauce 3 months ago, if you have any questions, feel free to ask.

I don't drink every night. Mainly when after doing yard work or big jobs and then it's never 1 or 2 like like the commercial. Its 8 to 12 per drink session
Well that's good. Cutting back should be pretty easy.

Interesting if that was what gave you the issues.

I did feel a little confused because as i was going upstairs I was thinking "allrighty now I gotta go cut the door casing" then I got upstairs and I couldn't remember door casing. That's probably what I was mumbling and I felt light headed, then I guess I stood on one leg and screamed. Dont know how cause i bit the sides of my toung. I don't remember any of that. I remember seeing the yellow thing in the driveway they used to get me to the ambulance, them loading me in and asking me questions in the ambulance, but I don't remember actually being moved into the hospital.

did they run any tests to see if you're actually a flamingo

if you are they could be giving you medication incompatible with your biology

and be sure to get a second opinion from another doctor
