When Camille and I were younger, in college, whenever something bad happened or something that we considered bad luck, we would call it "Luck of the blonde's!" I remember my mom getting upset about that, but, we were just being funny.....or so we thought.
Fast forward to today, well actually Monday December 8. I was at the kiosk and I was a little busy, it was about 11:00, Aaron called me, I didn't even say "Hello." I just said, "Hey, I gotta call you back!" Then he said, "I have bad news, so you gotta call!" I said, "okay, I will."
As I was ringing customers up, I couldn't stop thinking about what the bad news could possibly be! I'm sure you have all gone through this before. These are some of the things that I thought of;
Was someone in a car accident?
Did Grandma or Grandpa die?
Did someone have to go to the hospital?
Are all the cousins okay?
Did Aaron lose his job?
As soon as I could, I called Aaron back. He told me that he, along with some other people were laid-off! One third of the company. He would get a paycheck that included all of Monday, but that was it. No severance package, no pay through the end of the pay period, basically no...NOTHING!
There was absolutely no indication of this, everyone was completely surprised. I am still trying to figure out if we have insurance through the end of the month. Aaron has been extremely busy with finals, so this week has been a little hectic anyway, but now with him looking for a job and studying and finishing up papers that are due, it hasn't been fun.
We will be fine, for a short time anyway, but we need to find something, the sooner the better. So if any of you know of anything, please let us know!
Aaron has is Bachelors Degree in Computer Science.
He is four months away from getting his MBA in Technology Management.
He was a Software Engineer/Programmer.
So, is this "The Luck of the blonde's?"
Oh, and if you usually get a Christmas Card from us, sorry, but I won't be sending them this year.
