Getting Axed

Postby Mahony on Mon Apr 21, 2008 10:11 pm

Well I got the axe today from work...what can I say, it sucks, never been fired before, not the best feeling.

Gonna get drunk and ...well start looking for something else.

But life could be worse I guess...thought id share some bitch bitch bitch...


I guess telling your boss how you really feel about the SOB doesnt help certain situations. Not my fault he is a shmuck! I just shouldnt of told him :?

Here is looking at the lotto..wish me luck on my search for employment. bahhah

Shitty deal man..

I suck at sucking dick also.. although luckily I'm in the military and they can't fire me. They might not promote me.. but oh well, I like where I'm at!

What was your job?

I wish I kept this artcile that shows how if you want a promotion and more money, then quit the job you're at. They did some research that shows much more people got from switching companies then just getting promoted or raises at work.

2 Things..

1. Kelston is indeed a sexy bitch.
2. I agree, switching jobs is the best way to 'promote oneself' .. I've switched jobs about once a year or two consecutively for the last 5 years. My income has doubled every year or two.. and my responsibilities have increased with each job switch as well. I own my own corporation now, (as of July 1st) but the last firm I consulted for worked me to the bone, under paid me on my bonus and I was so pissed I quit. Half the company came with me to help create my new firm.

:)

I worked my ass off for another company before that, driving it from unprofitable to a $5mil/yr entertainment corp... we then got offered $20mil for a buyout.. I was so fed up with the way the acquisition was going by our new holding company that was buying us out and restructuring our technology that I told all the execs at the holding firm that if they continued to merge the technology the way they were the company would eventually tank. I was let go the next day, thats when I moved to Cali. Best decision I ever made.

Oh and the company tanked a few months later.. everyone was let go, and another company bought out the remaining IP and rights for bargin basement dollars.

Haha that reminds me of this one time I was sleeping on the job when I did night audit at a hotel, I awoke to an asian transvestite ringing the lobby bell, I got up.. ran around the corner to help her (him?) before rolling my ankle and breaking it becuase it was still asleep.. I was let go.. but then I was motivated to get my first tech job, at a datacenter.. (night shifts, but hey, I got to man the datacenter!) thats how I broke into my career.

The other primary partner in my new firm was a CTO at a startup which went under due to funding.. he was let go due to cuts.. which motivated him to move out here a few months ago to start the new firm up with me.. So it happens to everyone and I'd be willing to be that most of the time people are let go they wind up somewhere better anyways. :)

So congrats on your new gig!
