I'm sure I won't be the first person this has happened to, but when it happens to you, you sure feel like you've been hit by a train!
Went to work this morning and me (plus my partner who I work with) and the rest of the team were summoned to a meeting at 10am. We sit down and within the minute, our big wig manager tells us we're all out of a job as of 31 Dec!
I have longed for this for years but now it's happened, I'm sh***ing myself - I've been there 23 years! Talk about a change in our life!
I have absolutely no intent of ever working in insurance ever again as it's soooooooo boring. Apart from starting 2006 with a 2 month round the world trip on some of our redundancy cash, what on earth do I do next???
