A very sad day.

I just found out today that what I though was a safe and secure job will soon just be another part of the economy downturn. So with this news I had to cancel my order for the car of my dreams. I am just hoping at the same time that the dealer will understand and give my deposit back. I have heard it may be for some reason nonrefundable which I can not understand since the car has not even been officially put on a build schedule as of yet.
I also wanted to say thank you for all the people who I have cahtted with and found friendship with during this short time in which i have been active on this site. I wish you all the best, and hope your families all survive these hard times ahead.

Sorry to hear. I had to take a really great tenant to court yesterday because she lost her job and hasn't been able to pay rent for months. It's so tough seeing honest people now being in the same line as dirtbags.

Things will get better.

I hate to hear that. I'm soon to be in the unemployed ranks myself. It sucks knowing that a lay off is coming, and just passing through day to day waiting for HR to call you to the office to get the reduction in force speech.

I am really sorry to hear about the job loss. Keep your chin up and know that although things may be rough for a while, things will get better, they always do.
