Today approximately 30 employees were layed off from my company from our IT group. One of them is someone I really like very much. She's a wealth of information, friendly, funny, has the greatest laugh ever, helps me A LOT and has been here 14 years. I've been here 10 years. We've known each other a long time. She scrapbooks her vacations. She's a very good scrapbooker. She brings her new scrapbooks around to show us what she's done and the trip she took. She just invited me to a scrapbook convention thingy taking place in Sacramento, but it's the weekend I leave for Cabo so I can't go.
She's been crying pretty much ever since she found out this morning. She admits she had a feeling it could happen but she was still surprised and unprepared. She gets 21 weeks of severance. Even that may not be enough time to find a new job here in Silicon Valley. It's a mess out there. Just a mess.
I'm really going to miss her. :0( This is so sucky.
To top that off, my other friend here who'se been at this company 7 years is leaving for a new job she found.
It's gonna suck around here.
