yep, i've heard it over and over... the coffee maker cracks that is!Dan said:Ouch. I could joke about having your own coffee maker, but still, it's not fun. I've done the house sale and cross-country trek before, and it's no picnic.
Maybe, but aren't there those ... uhh, tokens of appreciation that public officials in Louisiana are known to get in great abundance?Planderella said:And all this time I thought it was Louisiana........
I think that it's pretty obvious... i plan urban areas in citiesprudence said:Boiker -
what's a City Urban Planner?? Is there a City Rural Planner??
All kidding aside, I wish you the best in your job hunt.
Oh, and to comment on the hijacked thread...I don't drink coffee.
i read my 'union' contract before i signed up for the job, I didn't know about the little things that come back to haunt me now. No severence, Insurance stop immediatly at termination, no bargining available (since it was in the union contract). All us who got layed off got screwed. Now all i have is unemployment checks and I have to find insurance, as COBRA for my family is over 1,000 a month...unemployment is only 1400 a month.mike gurnee said:Any severance package? Are do the perks not filter down? In my last position (director) I was offered 6 mo salary to resign. I argued, and got six months to find something else. (political, not budgetary in that case). BTW, I have my coffee maker, 'cause no one else knows how to make it drinkable.
my department was very apologetic. From the director to the guy who was hired along side me (who also got laid off). THey knew who they were losing. Everyone in the city staff is mad at council for their wild spending and ridiculous insentives to devleopers. Basically, thats what broke the bank.mike gurnee said:Don't you love unions? As in your case, management does not see employees as persons--only as 'them'. Did anybody higher up than your office even say "we are sorry"? Or even say goodbye? You have just reminded me not to start a new career.
