This morning at 8:15AM my boss came to my office and asked me to come with him. We went to his office where the HR Manager was waiting for us. He shut the door and I was given the news that my position was being eliminated and I was losing my job. Just 25 days short of 20 years of service.
We were told before Christmas at a plant meeting there was going to be a work force reduction in early January. I never dreamed at the time I would have anything to worry about. However as time progressed over the holidays I could see the writing on the wall, I was intentionally held out of meetings I would normally be a part of with the other supervisors and my boss started giving me the cold shoulder. I’m finding out that all together they got rid of 9 people today.
OH well, life goes on and I will hit the ground running. I have a good support system in my family and friends. I’m looking forward to sleeping in for a few days and doing some work around the house. I’m already making calls to put feelers out, checking into unemployment and the ex wife even told me this morning that we could suspend my child supposrt for a while if I need to do so.
