Unhappy I just lost my job!

BIL just came and told me that me and my oldest are gone after next week.
I wish he would have told me yesterday before I went and got the car!!!!!
Just us!!! I wondered why my sister left early!!! Chicken $%@*!!!!!!!!!
What makes me mad, it has nothing to do with our work. We're the only ones that other people know how to do our work and he can safely let us go without hurting his precious crappy company!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Holy cow tg, that is pretty harsh. And your sister didn't even hang in there to soften the blow? Yikes.

Their loss though. You will find another job and they will miss you a lot.

Everything always happens for a reason.
No doubt this happened at the right time for you, as your new career is sick of waiting for you.

Best thing is you are such a people-person! You'll soar at whatever you do!

oh - and another thing. Smack BIL upside the head next time you see him for all of us.

I really hope that all of you are right! As far as me being a people person, hehe, only in writing. I'm actually very shy. It's hard for me to start talking to people.
I don't know for sure, that sis knew, but, she had to. It's their company and she knew that the company is going under.
The highest paid ones stay. That is what gets me. I make $9.50 an hour.
Everyone else, makes over $12. And I'm the one that got canned!! The son knows the vinyl though, sisters son, not BIL's. The others are BIL's brothers, sister, my niece and then 3 that are not blood related,but, have been there a while. I'm glad that he is at least keeping my youngest since he just got a new truck, but, he's putting in apps everywhere, because we don't see the company going much further, or at least, I hope it doesn't!!!!!!! I did at least get him to agree to give son severence as he would have been there a year June and get a weeks paid vacation. I told him that since he never bothered to give him a raise that he deserved, that was the least he could do since minimum wage is only $5.15 here.
Thank you for all your well wishes, it will help me get through the next week!!

And jkath, he will definately get some words that he has never heard from me before!! Sis might also.

Texas, you only think you're shy.
You'll go far.

texas - i'm so sorry! What a lowthing for BIL and your sis to do...sometimes it doesn't seem to work out well when family or close friends work together. I agree with everyone else - something better will come your way! {{hugs}} to you!
