100 people got the ax today

Including me. My reaction is acceptance. I have no anger, I’m not even bummed, I’m not taking it personally because I wasn’t singled out. It’s just a job. I have no mortgage and zero debt so I’m in a good place financially. My investments are growing. Maybe this is the summer where I just read on the beach and go for long bike rides and walks. I am not crushed because I don’t like being tethered to my computer 8-9 hours a day if I don’t have to be. I’ll get another job.... after summer, when the days are short and when the rains take over. This summer is mine.

Hugs, as job loss is never fun. But no debt or mortgage, or even manageable debt is the best you can be right now. flexibility is always a good trait when it comes to "what now?" Hope things work out.

I took it personally until they let everyone else go too. Last in the door is the first one out or something like that.
I've broke even since and was saving money for when this inevitable time came... Good riddance.

Great Attitude!

Yep, at the end of the day we have very little power over what happens to us - the only power we have is how we react to the events thrust our way.

Your attitude is pretty inspiring. Thanks for sharing that!

Videographer. Which is why I’m not worried landing a future job because the demand is so high across the board.

I went into Metrotown today, and all the Express cashiers have been replaces with even more self checkout machines.
