No Way!!! After all the juggling they have made you do? That is rediculous!!
I can't make it next Thursday, but I want to know what their excuse was. email/Rav-mail me if you don't want to put it here.

The excuse was "downsizing". That's it. Ugh.

Awful. Did they give you some time to figure things out, or was it a Friday lay off so you don't come back after the weekend thing (which I think is LAME since employees must give 2 weeks+ notice)?

No time to figure things out and ZERO warning. Also, they did the deed via phone since I was working from home today. Pretty lame.

The REALLY sucky thing is that I have personal stuff at BOTH offices so now I have to magically get it somehow.

Shoot -- I thought you'd be safe when I heard about it today. Do you want me to go into the office up here and clean out your desk for you?

Shoot, shoot, shoot.

Um, that would be really fantastic of you...I really don't want to have to go up there next week...

Christ - how fucking lame - by phone. Inexcuseable. So sorry - you (and all the other victims) deserve much better. It sounds like how they were doing things during the bust. Totally unprofessional and crass.

Seriously. Except when I was laid off during the dot com days my employer had the grace to give me a heads up - so it wasn't a complete shock. Plus that way I had time to clear my desk. I come with alot of tschotchkes...
