Well, this is a new one: I've quit jobs and I've finished up contracts, but I've never been laid off.
It's been no secret that I didn't like my job. It wasn't very challenging, paid me peanuts, and didn't pay me very often. In fact, I think it was 4 times this past year I wasn't paid for 6 weeks.
So, it wasn't much of a surprise that I was laid off this week. In fact, I was relieved and a little happy. The job wasn't good and the pay wasn't good or regular. I'm probably better off.
I'd been hunting for work all year, but now I've got more of a fire under me.
