Well, the company I work(ed) for over-hired, and I was the low man on the totem pole. I was given the option to resign with the possibility of getting hired in the future, or face termination. I chose to resign. I’m very bitter about this because after paying for my truck and health insurance, I’m left with a whopping $40. Like I said, I’m coming off meds and remaining on lithium. I’ll give it a few months to let the weather cool off (I live in Phoenix, AZ) - it was 110 yesterday. Maybe come October I’ll be looking again, but I CAN’T work in this heat AND be on lithium.
Oh man, I’m sorry this happened, but if your taking it as a vacation, at least your making it work in your favor.
I bet you’ll find something in October easy. 110 degrees? I would be a melted puddle of nothingness curled up and freaking out. too much heat no water and I’m a goner.
I’ll stay in my rain city. High this week is supposed to be 80. we level out at 75-80.
Ick…could you have collected if you let them terminate you? had you worked there long enough? I know i have collected a few times after only working 4 - 5 months…but i think you have to work more than one quarter to get unemployment…
When you quit/resign you usually can’t get it unless you quit for a legit reason, like worker safety violations in the company…
Who CAN work in 110 heat, on or off meds? I know it’s dry heat but still, when I went through AZ and visited Phoenix in July could barely breathe just stepping outside…thank God the people we stayed with had a pool!
I am truly sorry @alien99 for what has happened. I was forced to retire because of my disabling symptoms after years of working at the same position. You know yourself, your body best. I am sure that you will get another job, even a better one when the time is right. Hang in there buddy, I was told a while ago that things happen for a reason - maybe its for the best right now - everything will work itself out
I’m sorry to hear about the job. I hope you find a new one.
I hate heat. It’s only 17 C here and I’m dying outside… (63 F)
deeply sorry to hear this…take some time to get back on your feet…hoping the best for you…
I too am sorry to hear your loss.
If it is any consolation I, too, have lost my job of 5-years due to ill health.
From hello one day to goodby the next.
Problem of filling the void and staying afloat financially.
I’m sorry that’s crap.
It seems like you are handling it well, which is good.
I hope that something good comes your way.
I’m really sorry for your loss. I lost my job too after Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans. I was a student worker and had my own cubicle and everything. I still miss that job sometimes (because it was in a tall building, so I felt like a boss, and I used took like looking out at the neighborhood). Still, I moved on to bigger and better things and I know you will too.
sorry to hear that, i hope things pick up for you.
