I’d almost have preferred to have been laid off, if there’d been a generous severance package. This is a realization I’m going to have sit with a bit. Hm. (Meanwhile, I’m fortunate enough to have retirement savings I’ll go neurotically review now.)
This is apparently going to take the wind out of my sails for a while. I should start being nicer to recruiters.
Said news is: my boss gave *his* two weeks’ notice yesterday. This is not a good thing; he’s been a really good manager—and it doesn’t sound like they’re going to hire a replacement, so my remaining coworker and I will have a significantly higher workload.
