Just another statistic..

Well finally the recession has come knocking on my door. In a months time I will find myself as one of the nameless masses who have been unfortunate enough to lose their jobs due to the economic crisis in Ireland at the moment.

Nasty, nasty stuff. My boss who shall remain nameless did not have the decency to call and let me know which is what hurts the most. Having stayed in this job to help him through these bad times this is a real kick in the teeth. I understand the decision from a business perspective and whilst I may not agree with the principle I can see how it has happened. It is not the answer to save this retailer but too much listening to accountants over the past 8 months is what has left us in the position we are in right now. No cashflow due to no stock etc etc....

I dont want this to be a doom and gloom post because it does not need to be. I have a fantastic family who will help if nesseccary, a beautiful supportive girlfriend and friends a plenty. Maybe it will provide me with new and interesting prospects? Maybe it will push me into another area? who knows!! So whilst it is a bit of a shock right now it is not the end of the world.

YOLO!! you only live once, enjoy it :)


  1. Feckin recession. Feckin boss of yours. I'd be more bitter.

  2. Really sorry to hear. Fair play to your openness and honesty - its a skill to be realistic. Best of luck over the next while to moving on to the next stage!

  3. Well, that's a tough one to say the least. At least you'll be able to catch up on all those episodes of Coronation St. That'll be handy.
    You know what they say tho, when a door closes another opens.
    At least you have us ;-)

  4. I am sorry to hear of your job loss and am rather ticked at you boss for not giving you the heads up, what a coward. Hope things turn around quickly, wish I had more to offer.

  5. Thanks for the comments folks!! Still not freakin out, have a few things in motion so fingers crossed - Idiot
