Sorry to hear, man. It's hard to see it now but things happen for a reason. I'm sure you'll figure it out and a change might be the best thing that ever happened. Good luck.

Anymore, most jobs are about policy and procedure. No common sense needed, or wanted.

When they found out what you worked with, and how important policy and procedure was, they will hire you on the spot.

Plus, a guy who spent 20 plus years at his old job is going to be loyal.

Do you have any idea of what you'd like to do?

That was one of the coolest feelings I had during my job search....

I remember waking up one morning and feeling scared about the "job impairment". One lady at workforce services did use that term...all the sudden it was like...wait a minute..im not an unskilled , 18 year old kid now.. I have experience. I can do....

Really sorry to hear. But as everyone else already has said, I'm sure things will turn out for the better. In these situations they often do. Also from personal experience. Best of luck!

Goof luck my brother! Im sure that was a weird moment and feeling to have happen. Like you said though, it has put you into a different mindset and moved you off of a spot. Now its time to find something new. Maybe more money. Probably more exciting. Life is weird, but it can be a change for the better. Like you siad, "2 weeks notice" pay and 5.5 weeks of vacation pay. So youve got 2 months of money right there. Thats a good thing. Not a big rush yet, plus a weekend to chill. Go ride and relax.

well. finally!

Rifle, check Raytheon; asshole company doing a bunch of HAARP myraid NSA/intel stuff. The trick will be to fold your specialty into their scalar-microwaves-aerosol-plasma, etc stuff. They're hot. Plus they need non psychos.

We're sending our prayers to you bud. A man of your intelligence and common sense won't be unemployed for long. A break could be just what the doctor ordered, this could be just the start of something truly awesome.

Attitudes are contagious. Mine might kill you.

Are you the same rifleman that made the 1/5 inserts? If so, I still like mine, and thank you for making them. Theres the new career, right there...

I know several folks who lost their jobs. Two years later, I cannot think of one of them who does not call it a defining moment and say its the best thing to ever happen to them.
