    Two good things though... I made my very last car payment today (yes, I have enough to cover it), and my insurance is going to drop by almost half now that I'm turning 25 and it's paid off.

    They let some people go that have been there over 20 and 30 years.

    I'm also getting good severance and awesome recommendations.

    Thank GAWD I DID NOT buy the truck!!!!!

    Thanks guys, and I'm still going on the April trip!! ;)

    That totally sucks! It happened to me in November (happy holidays right?). Not fun.

    File your unemployement ASAP - you can do it online and it is easy.

    Good luck on the job search.

    Wow, thats terrible :( What company? Sad thing is that this is going to keep happening.


    Everytime I think I dont like my job, I remember how secure of a job it really is, and I am thankful for that.

    Sorry to hear that PT; at least you got the car paid off (always try to look for the bright side of the shit sandwich, huh?)

    My husband got informed last night that his company thought they had too many middle management (which is what he is) in this area. I think it was a hint; they're going to start cutting. Yikes.

    That sucks Heather, but you are paying off your car. THat is one less bill to think about.
    Keeping my fingers crossed you are able to find something else!
