Everyone worth their salt has been fired. And it's almost always for some inexplicable randomness that knocks from left field. Things will work out. You didn't want to work with those bastards anyway.

Oh man, sorry to hear about this! :( It's always heartbreaking to get booted from a job. (The two times I got sacked was also due to office politics).

But I agree with Tony. "When one door closes, another one opens" sounds trite, but it's true.



Eesh. I'm so sorry that happened. You'll forget feeling shitty the second something better comes along, the thing you were meant to do. Don't let the turkeys get you down, just be glad go got off that sinking ship.


Oh, there are few things as horrible for the self-esteem than getting fired. Especially when you feel that you are doing a good job (And I think that you were).

Don't rush to be funny. We don't mind. Try to look at it like you were threatening because you were GOOD. I have seen it happen time and time again. Some get their knickers in a twist because they HATE CHANGE and bitch until they get that level of comfort back. Sucks, but I highly doubt it was because of you.

I think that the moms are the ones that will suffer and that is sad.



Ugh, that just bites. I'm so sorry about that. I've never been very good with witty, one-liners that help take the focus of something horrible that's happened. But I do feel ya - just more of an excuse to indulge in chocolate; dark chocolate! Hope your spirits are higher soon...

Oh wow I had no idea. How shitty!!!!!!

My only unasked for advice is to remember that time heals all. With a little Prozac. And wine. And chocolate.


Thanks Emma and Tony for your kind words... Here's to better times!


Sorry to hear you lost your job. Personally I was usually pleased to be let go from the jobs I was made redundant from, but since you obviously enjoyed your job, I guess it sucks. You'll get over the self-doubt. I promise.


I was let-go of a job once. I was even headhunted to the place by the 2 owners and some friends who had worked there.

I felt betrayed after they told me "I was no longer needed” after 6 months of busting my butt (I didn't see it coming).
But I learned from it. I got an even better job and went even further with my career than all of them could even imagine.

Now, I'm in a position to contract work to them. They call me occasionally looking for stuff but I'll never use them for anything, not even to wash my car.

But it was a blessing in disguise. If they never let me go, other opportunities would have never happened. It’s all in how you view things.
