Curtains

The phone hasn't stopped ringing all evening. Apparently, at a meeting at my old department at hp this afternoon, my former colleagues have been told that as from June 13th, their services will no longer be required -- which means that effectively, they're all going to be out of a job in three months' time. Funny, how you never hear from people when things are going well...now they're all looking to me for reassurance. So I tell them they'll be fine, as I'm sure most of them will be, but right now they're all in shock, and wondering what their future will hold.

I'm so glad I left when I did.

You most certainly did get out at the right time, and even if the current job is not all that exciting, it is still there!

Actually, I've been getting into my stride at the new job recently. I'm forging some relationships, I've been getting some good feedback, and I'm no longer feeling like an idiot most of the time. All in all, I can't complain, really.

That must be a bit of a relief for you, knowing that you made the right decision.

I'm so happy for you that you are not with them in this! (And yes it is strange how you don't hear from any of them when things are going well.)

You obviously left for pastures new at just the right time.
