Merry Fucking Christmas, You’re Fired!

I believe it went something like this: “AOL is realigning resources meaning you will no longer have a position with the company.”
And with that, so ended my 4 years (and 3 days) with the company.
Now I can go get a real job with a real company!

    Ugh! What jerks – no surprise. Hope your holidaytime is otherwise good. And in a little bit, when you’ve landed a fabulous new job with a non-evil company, you’ll be glad they were stupid enough to alienate so many talented folks.

    Thanks! Ain’t you sweet. 🙂
    Actually, Yahoo! set up an open house last week just for us ex-AOLers. Was awful nice of them. eBay and Microsoft are doing the same next month.
    I would feel much worse if it had only been me, but 350 of us were let go… another 100 in west coast offices. I pictured some unnamed VP (the guy who I know dropped the axe on me) logging in his diary that day: “I laid off 350 people. Then I masturbated.” Such is life.
