    all I can say is...

    keep your expenses low and your resume up-to-date.

    if you do get the axe, do all your job hunting during your 2 weeks notice,
    and do hundreds of photocopies of your resume. Fax them from work.

    word, my pops got smacked with corporate layoffs, cause you know, the company might have been worth than less than a billion dollars...so fuck it, fire 400 peoples...
    its really not that hard to find a new job, im a proffessional job finder and i make decent cash....plus he probably got a compensation package, is garuanteed unemployment, so he basically gets a month off paid plus unemployment to find a better job.


    damn dawg, from what i hear from people who are trying to find jobs (im definitely not one of them) is that the job market is pretty bad right now.

    well, its shitty but at least you can take comfort in the fact that you are young (im guessing your in your early 20s)....right now we (younger people) have the advantage due to our age....seems like the more ripe you are the easier it is to get hired on....for a corporation paying some newbie with minimal experience and then training him/ her to their liking is much more cost efficient that hiring a fleet of older folks with extensive resumes and experience....

    still, its very unsettling not to have job security. i feel for you....

    good luck and if you can spare it tuck some of that paycheck away....it will make situations like yours a lot less stressful....

    yo thanks for the words gents.....id love to get the cat his job back but unfortunately im just a lonely marketing assistant.....im sure he will land on his feet, dood is a bad ass programmer....thats the funny thing, the fucking guy put em where they are at, but when ya gotta make budget and you have two designers, ones gotta go....the older one stayed on, not to say he isnt good either...quality erosion.....i was just aghast at the suddeness of it...i mean dood packed his shit into one fucking box, and was ghost in 5 minutes....boom...later.....it was just wierd....i mean he sits in an office next to my cubicle coffin and shit is just bare and dark....he was just another character in this weird book of my life, comes in and leaves....so it goes i guess.....im not fretting my job security....i more in the mid to late 20s, but still i dont fret, why bother? shit could be much worse....plus really there is no good and bad experience and its friday and i gotta half day....;)


    quietly move your shit into his now vacant office....

    thats what i'd do.
