Lately I have been hearing a lot about the economy and job losses. I don't know if it is a reoccurring theme with the lazy, incompetent media or a commentary on the people of today, but one thing I keep hearing is how after someone lost their job they cried all the way home, wee wee wee. It's like their initial reaction to losing their job is, "Waaaa, they don't love me anymore!!!!" Could it be because people have been told since they were babies that they are wonderful and smart and cute that they can't handle rejection??
I have lost a number of jobs, some because I had visual rectal problems (I couldn't see my ass working there anymore) and others where it wasn't my idea to leave. Whenever I have been laid off or fired, my reaction has been, "I was looking for work when I found this job." If you tell the boss that they don't know how to handle it.
I figured out over 30 years ago that there is no such thing as company loyalty to the employees. Why would anyone in this day and age believe they would be able to work for only one employer for their entire career?? Even the useless media has been saying for a long time now that everyone can plan on having multiple employers during their working lifetime.
Of course back in the days before they started shipping our jobs over the pond, you could go down the street and find something else. I remember seeing help wanted signs as I drove down the street. Today they are few and far between.
