    Sorry to hear that BP, but at least you seem to be making the best out of the situation. I hope you find another job soon.

    I got laid off with a nice severance check a few years ago when my employer was bought by a bigger fish. The only real problem was the health insurance.

    Sorry you lost your job, but sounds like you'll be fine financially. So, now that you don't have a job, you can join me and my girls for our weekly lunch and shopping.

    Well that cash should be sufficient until you can find a new one, try the online sites I have heard theyre really helpful for serious workers. Good luck

    Nothing original for me to add, so I'll just echo the comments of others: glad to see you're taking this with a positive attitude, glad you have a marketable skill/trade and shouldn't have much of a problem finding something else, hopefully better. Most of all, I'm glad to see you have your priorities in order. My wishes also for best of luck. Will see you Sep 7 when we beat the crap out of the Jags.
