View Full Version : Well the credit crunch has bitten me

20-09-2008, 01:14 PM
Thank you to everyone who put up with my morose postings yesterday. Anyway yesterday we found out that the company DH works for has been put up for sale. It's a large company and the vultures have been circling waiting for the share price to drop, and drop it has. Sales are 75% down than expected, and the board has decided to sell.
DH works in the IT dept as a Business Analyst. He has been warned that it is unlikely the company as it stands will be around at Christmas. I am worried of course as the employment sittuaton is so dire at the moment. But after feeling sorry for us yesterday, i am much calmer today. I have decided not to keep thinking of different scneraio's and keep positive. I am not going to let my thought process take me somewhere that hasn't happened. I will worry more as the events unfold. At the moment i wont. Concentrate on the day in hand.
So thank you for reading my very grump posts.

sorry to hear that but glad you're feeling more positive. One of my colleagues's husbands lost his job two weeks ago but had an interview on friday and has been offered another job, hope everything works out for you:hug2:

Wow. Hard news to get, eh? :(

Your positive attitude is going to make all the difference in the world. It will help your DH through tough times, and keep him focused on finding a new position if it comes to that. :yes:

One day of adjusting to disturbing news does not a grump make! :hug2:

Whenever you need a hug, an ear, a shoulder, a hand...you just come here and know that we are all ready to be there for you. :hug2:

Yep. What everyone said! :)

Be sure you grumble to us rather than your DH--less stress for him and an opportunity to de-stress for you!
