Icing on the cake, there goes the job.

Merry Xmas from my employer - no job. Not an easy time of year to get re-employed. Still things could be worse. I could be living with an alcoholic cheater! (deliberate sarc). Time to dig deep for the next work adventure - will have to be some type of driving job unless something else presents.

Re: Icing on the cake, there goes the job.

There's a special place in hell for employers who lay off people right before Christmas. Sorry for your predicament. Good luck on the job search.

Sorry to hear that. Talk about worst possible timing. I agree with the above post, El Diablo is keeping a spot hot just for them.

We've been there too... it sucks but dust yourself off, keep looking forward. You'll be fine.

Agreed - IF there is another option. Sometimes the business simply doesn't have the money to pay everyone.
