Third One Down

Well I guess I've been waiting for the shoe to drop. I mean, the two of the other female riders in our group have gotten hurt. Who is next. Well I'm not hurt physically but I'm not sure how much longer I will be riding with the group. My position was eliminated with the Department of Information Technology and I no longer have a job as of Feb 12. I truly believe that if a person is of value to an organization, that organization will find a place for them. I guess that is why I feel so hurt. I guess I wasn't providing enough value. OK, enough feeling sorry for myself. Now it is time to look to the future. I have had so many phone calls from people I work with directly both at the Department and Vendors who have said they either have possible opportunities or will help me locate something. I am hoping that what feels pretty bad at the moment will become an opportunity.

You were a victim of the new alpha male marking his territory. It's unfortunate that he couldn't just pee on a bush! Why do they have to mess with people's livelihood?

Check with state personnel. You may get preferential treatment for any open positions. We need to make sure we find you another job in Carson too! I don't think we all could take you missing the weekday rides.

Don't take it personally. Most of the time they lay off people, it has nothing to do with performance -- just numbers. Screw 'em.

I've always looked forward to the break in action. Once you get over the shock you will see the possibilities instead of the roadblocks. Hang in there.

You are a very talented woman with lots of energy and drive. I hope that this setback will lead you to an even more fulfilling and positive work environment! Just as long as it's still in Carson so we can still ride together.
