I’m being let go from my job in the private sector after five years continuous service. I received my written notice earlier this month within the 28 day time frame. However all is not lost.

Are you going to spend it on booze and women? Or waste it… :wink:


Good luck! I’d advise you to put some of that money away somewhere safe, but seeing as how you’re a squirrel and all, I guess I’d be preaching to the choir.
