Dropped Out :(

OK, after much negotiation here at work, it is the sad conclusion that I cannot come to the raid.

The reason?

Redundancy.

I have been displaced from my job, and I am being made redundant. This is going to take a couple of weeks to finalise, and they won't give me anytime off before it happens. Actually, I think the raid week, will be my last week.

So, now I have to worry about getting a new job.

And you would think a Government job is stable................

So, have fun guys.

Re: Dropped Out :(

Sorry to hear that mate!
Ah well, just use it as an opportunity to move onto bigger and brighter things, and recharge the batteries at the same time.

Re: Dropped Out :(

Sorry to hear about that Ken Oath. Easy for me to say I know, but onwards and upwards. Register yourself for temp work as soon as you can. It is amazing how many permanent opportunities eventually arise. Any salary coming in helps make the redundancy payment last longer or better still become a windfall.


regards
Steve

Re: Dropped Out :(

I did temp work for a while, then got offered a fulll time job, the job I do now I have been doing it for 4.5 years.

So proof temp work is a good starting point :0)

Re: Dropped Out :(

Don't suppose you know a doctor who can make you sick for a week ????, then your work couldnt get upset. But .... as they know you want the time off, and redundancy is usually good money, not worth the possible hassle.

Funny you say that. Well, not really.

I will be off work until the redundancy comes through.

My Dad has had a heart attack, and I have to go and run his business while he is in hospital.

Managing his business was what I was going to do anyway once I leave work here.
