Another one bites the dust...

Never a dull moment I said, right?

Sigh.

I was laid off from my job last night. I'd been there about 45 minutes when Jerry came to get me. I knew that we were probably going to lose a person in the plateroom because we're going from computer to plate later this summer and I just didn't think it would be me because between me and Monika I'm the more computer savvy. It didn't help that she's been there 30 years and I've only been there 3. What also bites bigtime, is that she's the one looking for another job!!! WTF?!?!!!!!!

Brian and Jerry did say that when there's an opening available that I can come back. I don't think it would be to the same position as they're bringing Tina back from days as she's the only other one who knows everything I do. But then again, who knows? I'm the person with the least amount of complaints when it came to crooked plates. If we still have to punch the plates, I'm still better at that than either one of them.

Which reminds me, I didn't get to finish Tv Week before I left tonight. Oh well! Not my problem anymore!

But they're going to let me draw unemployment. And they're going to give me the rest of my vacation days, as well as some money to buy health insurance for a few months.

My one brother doesn't think this will last long...I mean, they called me all the time on my nights off! We'll see.

Let's hope it doesn't last long---Justin and I are supposed to move into our own place the beginning of June!!!!!
