That's horrible. You think they could have at least given you a warning. The economy doesn't seem to be going easy on anyone though. My dad runs a small surplus store and lately things have been going slow. We've been cutting employee hours more and more just trying to save money.

Man that sucks. I've been jobless for about 6 months now and the Lord knows how bad I need one. Of course im in college so being a full-time student looking for part-time work isn't an employers first choice. Everything will work out for the better. Just keep a positive outlook on it although its freaking hard to do.

Btw, what stuff are you planning on selling here? I hope you don't have to get rid of that awesome gaming rig of yours. That would definitely be tragic.

It sucks really badly. I remember when my dad had to close all of our business' and sell our houses. We lost a lot of money. It's been pretty much downhill since then.

All of my guitars, amps and I guess I'll have to put my gaming rig up for sale if it comes to it. I really only keep this computer for editing.

Ah man. Sorry to hear that. I am hearing about a few people I know getting laid off. Including my mother who currently works for ING but her department is getting shut down in June.
I sell all of your stuff that can really bring you down. Keep your head up!

Thanks! I haven't seen you around these forums....


I seriously have to at least pay off my bills and I should be fine for a few months. It's all I'm stressing over. I can't get a hold of the guy who owes me money for my computer. I don't mind staying in for a while to save money.
