    Seems to be a lot of that going around lately. Sorry to hear it.


    But be a dear and do us a favor - don't look for another job. We wouldn't anything to damage Obama's awesome "unemployment" numbers. :rolleyes:

    It gives you more time to do other things. Seriously,I have been fired many times,I more or less like being fired since I have hated my jobs so often.Look at the bright side,you won`t have to put up with aholes you hated at work,my guess is there were aholes at work. you will get another job. My tradition the last few times after firings was to order lots of food and indulge,do it man!!!!

    VP of Credit Review. It seems the new place is only keeping branch people (tellers, etc) and loan originators.

    Everyone else is toast.

    It gives you more time to do other things? Yup. Unfortunately that weekly paycheck helps people to do those other things. Aholes at work... you're an eternal optimist, I see.

    I hate it when they tell you way ahead of time.
    Firstly, what incentive do you have to do a good job? To even show up?
    Then there's all your co-workers coming around to act all sad for you. Don't believe a word of it, none of them give a fiddler's fuck about you. Their only concern is when/if it will happen to them. They might tell you they'll keep in touch... more lies.
    Good Luck.
