Moms View Message Board: General Discussion: Archive April 2006: What a week! :(
By Kernkate on Friday, April 21, 2006 - 03:15 pm:

It started out DD Alissa sick since Tues. so I was off work, then yesterday DH got laid off from his job of 12 years!!! He was a mechanic for a Chevy Dealership and there is just no work they have been slow for a few months now. I am just sick over it!
I just keep hoping maybe they will get busy again real soon and they call him back. Its going to be a struggle financially for a little while. My job on the bus will end on June 7th so at least we have some paycheck coming in. Its just CRAZY! I guess you always think that it can't happen to you.
Thanks for letting me vent!!

BTDT - I know the awful feeling you have. I hope your dd is feeling better and that dh gets called back. I hope they at least gave him a decent severance package after 12 years. (((Kathy)))

((((HUGS))))) I hope everything works out soon.

It is an awful feeling. No mention of severance. Just they will carry his medical for 2 months. Big Deal! At least he can collect unemployment until we see what happens.

Ugh!!! I am so sorry! We have not had this happen (knocking on wood). But there was a time when I was a kid and my Dad was out of work. It was very stressful for him. :(

Big ((((HUGS))) !!!

You will be in my prayers.

Oh Kathy, I'm so sorry this has happened to your family.

Kathy, I'm so sorry!!

By Trina~moderator on Friday, April 21, 2006 - 04:19 pm:

Oh no! Hopefully this lay off will turn out to be a good thing. Meaning a much better job comes along! One that your DH wouldn't have found if he didn't get laid off. {{{HUGS}}} and prayers.

I'm so sorry!

Oh, Kathy! I hope Alissa is feeling better soon and this lay-off leads to a great opportunity for your dh. My dh was laid off three years ago and it lead to a great job that we've been very happy with. I'll be thinking of you. {{{Kathy and family}}}

Oh dear! I'm so sorry this is happening to you guys. I can't imagine how you feel! I'll also be thinking of you and hoping for the best.

I'm so sorry..hopefully with spring things will pick up in the Poconos...and that this is a temporary setback

sorry to hear this; I hope your daughter feels better soon and that all works out with your husbands situation. We have had to deal with several lay offs over the years but we have always been lucky that my husband has been called back to work after a few weeks. One day at a time; things will work out.

By Sandysmom on Saturday, April 22, 2006 - 10:27 am:

I'm so sorry this has happened. (((((You & Family)))))

It happened to us to right after we bought our house, my DH's company closed after he worked for them for seven years. Very stressful. Prayers are being sent your way.
