Got layed off from work today, less than 3 weeks away from Christmas... they said it was a seasonal layoff due to the fact that they'll shut down for a week during the holidays... i asked around and some of the oldtimers there said it happens every year, sometimes last 2 weeks, sometimes 2 months... the hell with that... when (and if) they call me back after Christmas, hopefully i can tell them to kiss my ass!

At least i've got my kids and grandkids some surprises... not too many years ago i would have never had a penny saved.

Sorry to hear about your layoff, Alfee. It will be one year, on Saturday, that I took a voluntary layoff from a company that was drastically downsizing. I took a temporary job last night that will last out the week, to have that little bit extra that always seems to be needed at this time of year. Hang in there, my friend.

Hi Alfee

I dont blame you for being angry a lot of people are being laid off right now
Yes it messes with plans and stuff but hopefully you'll be surprised with something better than you could have ever dreamed or hoped for. Meanwhile dont forget to stop by the employment office and make sure you can at least start collecting some unemployment pay. I know there is like a waiting week but that little bit extra always comes in handy.

Peace
JD

Thats is totally fucked. And it happens all the time. Bob got his after 12 years also right before the holidays and his bonus, which he lost also. We depended on it as you.
One thing that is for certain nothing is for certain. Barry I could get on the ban wagon here big time but it really is dangerous for my heatlth and serenity. However, you have a right to be angry, and do not stuff it, but also make sure you direct it towards the fellowship where we can handle it.

I am so sorry. It seems for me anyway since getting sober our lives have been harder than shit...we have lost so much and still losing. Our house is one. We will have to walk away as the ecomony is so bad no one will buy it for even what we owe on it and that is a steal. Bob is going to be 71 years old next month and it was his first house and was so proud and now this. He is pretty depressed and it worries me, as so do you.

My friend its not personal and even it it were, you know who you are and God of course does and you know that also.

Stay close to those who do care. I wish we were closer you could come over and we could all beat the shit out of my pillows and take the worlds inventory. I jest but I feel just awful and every day I hear one more fucked up shit happening or see it on the boob tube. Life is not easy its grand when things are going ok but as you know, it does not stay that way and it is so hard for us as recovering alcoholics to deal with these things. I do not know if you remember but Bob tried to take his life in sobriety and went into a coma. He knows now how bad of a decision that was. We need this program in good and bad times as we cannot stand failure and we cannot stand sucess. I love you my friend I hope that you can get some sense of good from these typed words that come from hands that are real and do really care.

Hugs Tink...
