I'VE HAD BETTER DAYS

Today was my 7th anniversary at the law firm where I work.

And today the partners announced that the firm is closing and that I only have a job for the next 4 weeks. The partner I work for will sincerely try to take me with him when he finds a place to land, but there are no guarantees.

There are lots of feelings rushing through me -- fear, insecurity, depression -- but the most overwhelming feeling is sadness. You see, while I complain as much as the next guy about work, for the last 4 years I have been lucky -- nay, blessed -- to work for a really decent guy. More than anything, I'm upset that I won't be working for him any more.

I'm so sorry. I hope that everything works out. I know that's not much to offer, but I mean it sincerely.

What a shock. You go to work all happy after 7 yrs of work and come home depressed with 4 weeks of paychecks in your future. No words of wisdom to offer so I'll just send good thoughts your way.

There are no words that can convey my sympathy at this time of upheaval. I sincerely send wishes for speedy finding of either a new position or a position with the man you already work with. Stay positive, Aidan.

Aidan, I am so sorry to hear your news. I also work for a lawfirm but we are going through restructuring. They just fired all the night staff and the flooters. We are all wondering who is next. Just not the way to work.

My thoughts are with you and I hope that your partner lands soon!!
