View Full Version : Today Mr Bumble lost his job

05-03-2009, 04:57 PM
We knew it was coming but not today. My Dh was made redundant at 11.30 this morning. We are shocked as he was told it wouldn't be for a few months but instead he has gone today.
I have cried but that is selfish as nobodys ill or worse,so l need to get a grip. I doubt l will be on as much as we only have this computer and he will be using it to look for jobs. So if you know of any IT jobs going give us a call. Only joking . Just to make you laugh when he called and told me l had a quick shot of the vodka to steady my nerves.:tongue:

We've lived with that threat for a couple of years now but I'm sure the reality is still much scarier than you realise.

I'm sorry, Gavin was made redundant last November and tbh he has had a blast at home and i've enjoyed him been at home doing all the cooking and cleaning!

In a couple of weeks he is to start his new job which has a much better salary and benefits package so for us it couldn't have been better!


05-03-2009, 05:56 PM
:( :( :(
This is just miserable news.
:( :( :(

I send every good wish that he finds something better than he had, FAST!!! :pdust: :pdust: :pdust:

I know he needs the computer, but please drop by as often as possible. I'll be worrying about you... :( :( :( :hug2:

I know an agency in Orlando that needs a decent IT person. :yes: Tried to get Keith to take it once upon a time, but he went home instead. :sigh:

05-03-2009, 06:12 PM
Oh honey, I am so sorry :hug2: I hope he finds something even better soon!!

I am really sorry to hear this Siobhan - we heard at work yesterday that one of our divisions is dramatically slashing jobs - which means more work for those of us left!

But of course I'd rather that than no job at all! :unsure:

:hug2: that he finds something soon!

05-03-2009, 07:32 PM
How sad that they led him to believe it would be longer than this. :hug2:

I hope he finds something very soon that's even better!

05-03-2009, 07:53 PM
silly question probably, but how's Mr Bumble? :hug2:

I am so sorry to hear your news, like gavin my OH found himself jobless for a while he to is in IT.

He went through different stages, the i dont care, to hidding away in the study (not good) however the outcome was he found a job contracting paid double and they appreciated his work/knowledge. It took a while, keep positive.
