Ayep, five minutes before quitting time on my first day back from two weeks vacation and my boss comes in my office and without further ado, announces I am “laid off”.
That’s the nice way of saying you’re fired, because now I can at least collect unemployment.
Good Lord, I haven’t collected unemployment since the mid eighties.
I won’t know where to start.
He acted like he really didn’t want to let me go, I had been there ten fucking years and me and him have gone round and round hundreds of times.
The owner is in town from Texas, apparently he ain’t happy about something(s).
Water under the fucking bridge now.
I can’t say I am one bit surprised, I had three people tell me to watch my back shortly before I went on vacation.
Again, water under the bridge.
Anyways, he was decent enough to give me two weeks of severance pay, that should keep me afloat until the unenjoyment kicks in.
Gave me the title to the truck I was paying for that I wrecked last winter and told me not to worry about my tool boxes and shit.I can store everything indefinitely, which means as soon as I can find a place to put four fucking roll aways, engine hoist, engine stands, storage cabinets full of shit and more goddamn little drawers full of miscellaneous nuts, bolts, screws, car parts and god only knows what else, I’m gonna..
I have a LOT of fucking tools and no where to put them in a fucking Weasel Den in a fucking trailer park.
I also have a ton of other shit that they are going to miss later.
WTF, shit happens.
I’ll put some at my folks and maybe some at my Uncles, who the fuck knows, I just may find another job.
As far as I recall, the initial unenjoyment claim is good for 26 weeks, that is six months.
. I may just lay around for a bit and finish a bunch of shit I have been putting off, who knows?
I have only been unemployed a little over an hour, I have some time to regroup before I jump.
I also have to do that grieving thing, I am friends with a lot of people there.
We shall see. As Mayberry says, stay tuned.
Right now, I am going to go get drunk.
Thanks fer stopping by.
