Fun Monday - My Inner Jerk

Today, I am supposed to tell you about my inner jerk. So, I'm a jerk for not wanting to participate.

Today, I got laid off. And I'm pissed and I feel sorry for myself. So there, I'm a jerk.

Sorry, Bev, I'll do better next time.

Hi there
You are SO NOT a jerk for feeling less than happy about being laid off.
Cyber hugs and dazzlingly positive reemployment vibes to you. Belinda.

Oh no :( I am so sorry. I am not surprised you are feeling pissed off. I hope something is just round the corner for you.

No wonder you are feeling p****d off. I do hope you find another job soon.

Courtney, that sucks! I am so sorry. Eat some ice cream, sleep late, watch some crap TV until you feel a bit better.

When I got laid off 6 years ago, I went to a temp agency, and was placed at a law firm for 2 weeks. 6 years later, I am the manager of the firm. Point being, you will get a better position out of this bad happenstance.

Yeah, you are more than entitled to down a bottle of wine, eat 14 cupcakes, and feel sorry for yourself.

Oh no Courtney!! I feel just sick hearing this. You're absolutely not a jerk for feeling pissed off.

I'm just down the road and I can take you out for a beer or something if you want to.

Big hugs to you.

Being sad/mad over being laid off is not being a Jerk. And not wanting to participate this week is not being a Jerk.

Now... if you took those feelings and expressed them by spraypainting their building or leaving excrement on their doorstep - that would be being a Jerk. A REAL JERK.

My dad always said that getting laid off was the best thing that ever happened to him. WHen the company changed hands, he was let go and got to pursue his dream job - and got it. There is always a silver lining - sometimes you have to look hard, but it's there.

Hope things get better for you FAST.

I’m sorry you’ve been laid off and your feelings seem quite ‘normal’ (given the circumstances) to me. Definitely NOT a ‘Fun Monday’ for you no matter how ya look at it … but ya know … when one door closes, another opens. Hope it opens for you soon in the best way possible ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

Hey Courtney,

Just checking in to see if you're doing any better yet. I've been thinking about you.

Hey, saw your blog while looking at other people's cool blogs and checking out their links. Sorry about the lay off...that's just plain rude for a Monday. Cheesy quote, "This just means something better is coming along." ---My Mom.
