    I am sorry. I hope that some other opportunity knocks very quickly.

    That sucks. I hope, on your way out, you yelled "MERGE THIS" And then dropped trou, simultaneously pointing at your junk and their ass.

    I worked for comapny A. Company A wasn't doing so hot, but was getting by. Company A's CEO decided that she couldn't continue to be CEO due to health reasons, so she decided to peace out. This put company A in a precarious position. Company B, a competitor to company A, came along and purchased company A. Company A's employees were skeptical and wary of this move, due to uncertainty of employment, salary, etc. Company A's employees were told not to fear, as company B was going to keep all of them, and everyone would remain at their current salary. As the merge became finalised, both of those promises were broken. Of the 8 company A employees, 5 were kept with 1 taking a cut in salary. I was informed that today was my last day. I have filed for unemployment, and am going to spend the next 2 weeks fishing. While I will be ok for a while with severence, vacation, and unemployment pay, I am not entirely sure that I will be able to continue to pay rent and bills, etc. Luckily, I am month to month where I live. Worst case scenario, I move out of this house and into an apartment, and sell my coachella tickets on Ebay along with one of my drumsets to buy me a couple more months while looking for a job. I am less than thrilled.

    A bit off topic but in many buildings / co's, this won't bring the FD running thru the doors. It will ring in to security or whoever monitors the system but may not cause a FD activation based on certain criteria.

    And my best wishes to the OP. I've never lost my job, I'm not sure how I would deal with it.

    Not entirely sure. I really wasn't a fan of the videography. It was fairly boring. I'm thinking of taking this time to get Microsoft certafied and doing something IT related.

    Well. I thought this was a pretty sad story, until you mentioned selling the drumset.

    Then, honest to goodness my stomach dropped, and I feel horrile.

    All the luck to hawkingvsreeve. I hope you pull out okay.

    Yeah, that is what I am hoping for. Apparently somewhere in San Diego they offer free Microsoft cert classes that prepare you for the tests, and then you get a discount on the tests. Pretty good deal.

    I had a girlfriend whose mom was fired from a merger. However, they promised that they would not fire anybody or mess with salaries. They fired her, but kept only some of the people, but she didn't even do anything wrong. They just fired her because of the merger... Now she is taking it to court. Maybe you can look into that?

    Unless you're unionized. Then grievances can be filed.

    I'm sorry to hear that Hawking. But maybe this is just another door opening? An opportunity to do something else that is more interesting to you?
