Sorry to hear that bro. Don't know how you're doing financially but maybe take a small break and go on unemployment for a little. Like a month the most.

Not sure if this is good advice since I've never been unemployed. Maybe get back on the saddle right away. Either way, I'm pretty sure you'll land a better higher paying gig in the future.

Keep us posted bud.

I have worked at companies that have laid people off THE DAY BEFORE CHRISTMAS. People are cunts. I know what they did it. Because it would be the first fiscal quarter of a new tax year by the time they got back from the holidays. I kind of tolerate a company that at least does it sooner rather than later. In the end it all sucks anyways.

I thought only government and security job were drug testing these days.
They do random drug tests at my job, or at least they did before COVID. I'm sure they'll start it up again at some point.

I drive a variety of forklifts.

My place does (or did) randoms, but Ive been here 5 years in Feb and have never been selected. Plus they sent almost everyone home in 2020 so I dont know if they even do it at all anymore.

I know someone that is working for Lego Store over the holidays. They drug tested.
I failed their bootleg Chinese building block residue skin test and was banned for life. Emmet told me I wasn't awesome. 😢

simmer down, not implying that people who work in retail are fuckups...just that a majority of HUMANS are fuckups.

I'm a male escort.

To be fair, most of the demo from 18-30ish are complete fuckups, especially in the retail/customer service/fast food field.

Sorry you got laid off dude. Real dick move by your employer. On the bright side, you are free to pursue your dreams. I wish you all the best.

Sorry to hear but it does happen for a reason. Maybe this will be an oppurtunity to do more free-lance stuff, stuff you would enjoy? Only fans?

I've had that happen to me way too many times over the years. This year, I just resigned and am finishing up in a few days time.
