Just been fired

Not a good day, or what might work out to be a very good day.

Fired via Microsoft Teams after 16 years, and they are trying to stitch me up on the compensation.

Sorry to hear that Peter.

Reading between the lines I got the sense you were sort of expecting it at some point.

And good advice from Maz...

Thanks all.

I will use this thread as a sounding board to offload mi mini trauma after a little siesta. I will be on the wine later. LOL

Compensation is in negotiation, and I took the news calmly and without drama.

They have acted deplorably and with little honesty, but it is what it is.

Hedgehog, you called it. In a lot of ways I was pushing it towards this outcome. And my perspective on life and where and how I want to live it as been in self debate these past 3 months.

One door closes and many others open.

I remember when you were hanging on until the right time to retire. I am too young for that, but I have some thinking to do.

Oh and first and foremost..no problems financially.

More later.

Bloody hell mate. At least you've got experience in distance teaching now, but it still.sucks the big one. I'm lucky enough to be considered indispensable at the Academy I'm at but if a 2nd wave hits here then I'm fooked too.

Good luck. Been there a few times and am hanging on myself but a little part of me says, like you, I want to try another door.

Bad news, Peter - sorry about that. Best of luck with those new doors - I guess the thing is to start opening them and see if you like the look of what's inside. I'm pleased that your financial situation gives you the chance to do that.
