Disgust at large businesses @ 06:32 am

So I went to a wine tasting last night. I the wines were ok, nothing to write home about. But I did find another person who was a casualty of HP. She had been with EDS for 20+ years, technical IT person, who is now looking for a job. I was laid off by HP a couple of years ago. The package is now *much* smaller, I was able to be a lady of leisure for about 5 months before I went back to work without it impacting me. There is another lady in the room who was also laid off by them.

I gave her the limited advice that I have about being laid off, I'd would follow up with one of the jobs that she posted for through a friend of mine. More and more I have been hearing about friends or people who know someone that has lost a job. It is disheartening.
