Ugh... just ugh

DH found out today that he's getting laid off at the end of this week. I am so not happy about this (not that DH is, he's very very upset). His boss told him today that it is just too slow to keep him on for the summer (last summer he worked PT and then paid his boss back) and that he wanted to lay him off now and hire him back in the fall. He said if he kept him on he wouldn't be able to make payroll.

This just sickens me. This man was at our wedding and hugged and kissed us and wished us the best; then this. Not to mention he gave us a rather large cash gift, and it's fairly well known that the boss pays himself before he pays the company.

I have never trusted his man. Never. Never liked him either.

Just last week he had DH move his desk so that he would have a better view of their floor to better serve customers. DH did this while it was 90 something degrees outside and they have no AC. He broke his butt doing this. Boss felt bad so he bought him a soda. WTF? Now this.

I am afraid DH is going to get screwed on his unemployment benefits as well.

Money will be tight, but thankfully I'm the breadwinner (making over 2x what DH makes) and I carry the insurance. But really this is not how we wanted to start out life together.

And, as much as I had to admit it; I am jealous that DH gets to stay home this summer w/ DS. I WANT TO STAY HOME!!!!!!

I have no idea how this will affect TTC, or what will happen if I am already PG (so much can change in 9 months).

UGH.

Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers. I really hope this doesn't get the best of him (depression) and I hope he doesn't get screwed over by unemployment.

Oh noooooooo! I'm so sorry Kate. And 2 weeks after your wedding? Ugh, not cool at all. I will be thinking and praying for you guys, I hope he finds something soon (if he doesn't want to wait to be hired back).


Lots and lots of hugs Kate.

Ugh...I am *sooo* sorry to hear this. It's amazing how his boss can be so great to you guys just a couple weeks ago - surely he knew he was going to do this at that point. I wonder if he was waiting until after the wedding and honeymoon to do it?

In any case, you guys will get through it, and your DH will bounce back. Sending you lots of positive thoughts - hang in there.

Oh Kate, that really really sucks! I'm so sorry you are dealing with this especially while you are supposed to be in the "honeymoon" period... I mean you just got married! What a jerk of a boss!


Everything will be fine though, use this time as a way to be there for each other a get through the first of many difficult things that life will throw you! Thank goodness you are the breadwinner! Although I can understand how frustrating that could be... I would want to be the one home too!! Not fair at all no matter how you look at it. Life is always there to throw you for a loop isn't it?


Not too long after we got married

Kate,


I am so sorry that this is happening to DH and you. What a rotten thing for his boss to do! I hope that you can be ok on what he gets with unemployment or that he will possibly have a new door open for him.


As for spending the summer with DH, I understand your feelings 100%. My DH is a full time college student and when I went back to work he quit his PT job at the school cause we ultimatly would have bee paying them by the time we got child care for Simon. He was trying to get a job that works towards his hours for his degree and has yet to land anything cause the economy here is still so cruddy. So he is spending the summer with Simon and it makes me jelouse something terrible. I mean I am happy that we don't have to worry about child care till the end of August maybe Sept but still, I want to be home.


(((hugs))) Thinking about you.

Kate I'm so sorry to hear this!! So does this mean that DH will be able to go back to work for him in the fall (if he even wants to)? Or that he's done for good? What (was/is) his job?

Ugh! I so agree with that sentiment. Maybe it is a blessing in disguise and he will find something way better! I'll have everything crossed for you that things work out okay. (((HUGS)))

Hugs!

That sucks, I know how that feels. DH was laid off back in Jan 2009 and we had found out we were pregnant in December, just before he finished work. He has been unemployed since then, its been hard but it can be done, unemployment has been a huge help and with all the extensions its been a lifesaver.

Hope he finds something soon. :-)

ETA- I saw on your profile that you are in Western MA, I grew up in Northampton, small world!

Caroline: I guess it is a small world.

Adrienne: He works in computer sales/repairs. Small company 5 employees. This is his (was) dream job. He just finished school for this last year.

*** To make things worse, his boss told them, while he was leaving today, that they would not be getting paid on Thursday this week. They have to wait until Monday next week to get paid now. This doesn't look good.

Hugs again! I can't believe that he can't get paid until next week. That stinks. I don't understand why boss' & Companies feel they can take advantage of their employees like that.

Thinking of you!
