I guess we join the ranks of the nation’s unemployed.
Mr. RSG, a mechanical engineer, got laid off today. Not for doing bad work, but because the company needed to reduce headcount. We are actually surprised when Mr. RSG made it through the previous 2 rounds of layoffs.
We are glad in a way, because that job was killing him, literally. He was popping Xanax for panic attacks.
Fate stepped in and relieved him.
He’s getting a small severance package, so that’s a plus.
So, as I told him before if this should happen, that I’d dust my resume off and we’d both start applying for jobs.
This wasn’t the first time in our marriage life handed us difficulties or that he got laid off. We adjusted well enough then, and we’ll weather this time too.
I have some options around here that I didn’t know existed before last December and I’ll have Mr RSG peruse those articles I collected on What to do if you get laid off last December (so yeah, him getting laid off isn’t totally unexpected).
Girls will be gone to camp Grandma this weekend, so Mr. RSG and I will have some time to strategize.
Wish us luck.
