( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

I appreciate the sentiment. But- It's a hard call to be upset with them in any way- personally, that is.

I did work there for five years- and it was a good job- Meaningful- I helped develop some systems and hacks that saved co-workers etc a lot of time- I got to work with a couple of very talented people..

It was a good experience- while the experience was happening.

To be perfectly honest- I don't even know that I would advise for or against working for this business. There are always things to be concerned about- in all of our experiences, interactions formal and informal with other people. Maybe somebody needs the job- maybe *some*how in some way I cannot understand or fail to see- there was some miscommunication issue- and this next situation for them will work out. Likely not- but it's up to other people to create their own reality.

And- you mention you've been in the industry for a long time- then you know- There can be much worse situations than this one- Maybe your employer gets offended when you don't come to their house on Christmas and down shots of vodka all night long instead of visiting your own family and friends- Or they don't pay you.. or... You know.
Relatively- the situation is simple..

This place does have a high turnover rate. It may be as mentioned - the employer is trying to minimize the penalty with the state. As moritz first mentioned, wisely so- it's nothing personal. I do get that feeling.

As for also- Too old to be excited about the next brand new experience, and too young for wisdom... I'm wondering how many of us suffer from this sort of- post partum depression thing- after an event of this sort.
