Luckily, in Britain (and I know this is not often the case in the US), you get a pay off when you are made redundant. (Redundant means the company cannot afford to keep you on. It does not mean you are a bad employee.)

What's the situation in Canada TL?
Many companies do make a pay out, if the employee has been there a long time. Sometimes they offer a pay out and see who wants to take it.

That is very similar to the UK TL. (Though not really what happened in my situation).

Anyway, goodnight!

But other than that, you can't tell us apart.

Personally, I think you are better looking than Clooney.

You just gotta luv him! And like Clooney, he has an impish sense of humor.

Give yourself a big smile in the mirror before you leave. Don't want any pieces of your last meal stuck between your teeth!

Had a teacher in high school who told us of a dating adventure. She went out with a very nice man to a quality restaurant and had a delightful evening. Smiled at him constantly. Wanted him be to sure he knew she was enjoying his company. After a rather brief "goodnight" at her door she went in to get ready for bed...and discovered a large bit of broccoli greens stuck between her teeth! Sadly, he never called her back...

Hope everything went well with your interview Katy! And good luck on Wednesday too.

I think of Booker from Rosanne or Matt Stevens from Return of the Killer Tomatoes, just a guy with a job.

It took a long time for him to perfect that image of old Hollywood royalty that he does so well.
