Another Monkey Wrench

Hubby got laid off today.

He's happy. I'm bawling & on the verge of getting sick.

If he's crying wolf again (yeah, sometimes he thinks he's funny), I'm going to puke on him and maybe that will straiten out his sense of humor.

Wow, I am really sorry to hear that. Jack got laid off last summer, and we went through a few tough months. But, he's back on his feet know as I'm sure your hubby will be soon.

Sorry to hear it :-(

Brenda said...

My husband is in sales so I have been in your shoes on more than one occasion. There's no polite way to say it, it sucks. Just know that you've got a lot of people to vent to who care.

Jo said...

Thank you ladies! Much appreciated! (Brenda, you made me laugh again reading that!)

Brandie said...

I'm sorry to hear this, Jo. I know how you feel. My hubby has been laid off for a long time and it's a huge struggle. I feel for you! Hang in there.

And if he's playing a joke...kick his ass!

Jo said...

Thanks Brandie and I'm sorry you're going through this too! And he wasn't joking this time - you made me LOL with that!

We'll be ok. It's just scary. The ridiculous thing is that our cobra will be $140 less each month than what he was putting out for gas, so we'll actually be slightly ahead with his unemployment!

I'm sorry Jo. It is scary. That's crazy about the cobra payments - proof that every cloud has a silver lining!

P.S. - A belated thank you for the postcards - I'm slow on the return side but I'm getting there!

Jo said...

Thanks Lizzi! And yes, that's one of the silver linings in the clouds of his getting laid off. There are others. Thank God for that! And no worries on the post cards! Take your time. I fit them in when I can.

Jo,
How are you doing? I was thinking about you.
My best friend recently got laid off. It is scary. My husband got laid off about 12 years ago, and it was a relief to me, but it was down in the dumps when it happened. He worked for an oil company at the time, and that constantly threatened to laid them off. It was worrisome with that cloud always hanging over your head. Eventually, he got a job with the University of Pennsylvania.....free tuition for the kids after you work there 10 years, so there is a silver lining.

Hang in there, and if he gets too lazy sitting around the house, well you are familiar with the cute tush...just give him a little kick in it!

xoxo

Thank you Brenda! I'm doing better, trying not to stress & let Vic do it if it's needed, lol! Fortunately or unfortunately, he's not the lazy type and I'm wondering how quickly boredom will set in... But, I can think of plenty to keep that cute tush occupied for some time ;)

Jo, I'm so sorry to hear about this! I know it's a scary time, but hopefully there will be a great opportunity or two that will come his way. You're in my thoughts and prayers!!!
