Kevin -
No worries.. where would we be without jokes about moms and drinkin'? I'll tell you where: serious grim land, that's where!

Kevin Charnas

I'm sorry. I really am.
I went through a similar circumstance - I had dreams about it as well...nightmares, more like it. It took me years to fully let it go. Just by chance, I actually felt like I had closure with it this past January, after 8 years.

And...my previous comment - I just now saw the AA in this post. I hope that I haven't offended you. I have some members in my family as well, and some that should be.


I added you to my roll. Hope you don't mind. I like you, Cranky...


One of my least favorite lines ever used?

"It's not personal. It's just business".


It is very personal.

Big hugs.


No good deed ever goes unpunished. Demonstrating enthusiasm and virtue just seems to generate hostility. What a bizarre world this is.


There is nothing as wretched as having the direction of your days suddenly taken away. It's disorienting and awful. How do you revamp your life and your idea of you? And who the hell are those people that took everything you worked for away?? Jerks. Happened to me too. But you’ve survived everything up til now, so we're all sure you'll come through this too.


Bossy - I did indeed get voted off, but I'm glad I got kicked off with someone as cool as you.

Jessica - From an OA to a UA, rock on sister and thanks for the kind words.

SkyAngel - Soo sweet. Thanks for the kind words.


CrankMama - don't you know the big brains get voted off the Island first? I was equally shocked to be fired from a job where i was excelling. At least i think i was fired. And at least i think i was excelling. It's hard to tell with those zany internet service provider start-up companies. Anyway - they turned up at my house one day to collect my company computer and company cell phone and all those manila envelopes. But i didn't get it. Couldn't they feel my enthusiasm and dedication - for instance in my late night emails, sent company wide, in which i wrote things like sort of suggest that our corporate name and entire image should be changed immediately to MY NEW IDEA? Far be it from me to be BOSSY but what kind of internet service provider start-up company is named Nex-i when it could be Jack?


Your are the overachiever to my underachiever, my ADD brain does not compute. I honestly think some people are too smart and savvy to work for other people.

Good luck to you. I have a feeling you excel at anything you do and quite frankly, that can be viewed as a threat to those more insecure.

I can identify with your "B- on the French paper" story. I was exactly like that when I was a teenager, and your words resonated with me.

I also had a lump in my throat at your description of your last day. I'm sorry you had to go through that. (HUGS!)
