There is no real rant here, just I would like to discuss appreciations. People don't appreciate things until they are gone. Why is that? I heard other people complaining that they were laid off and only had x amount of months severance. I was on a contract base there, so I did not get a severence. If those people who are being laid off with a generous severence could take a clue, please know that there are people in worse shape than you. QUIT SAYING POOR ME!!!! What about those people being laid off from minimum wage jobs? I think we need to be truely thankful for what we have and as many people have said -- One door closes while another one opens. If you are crying about your situation, LOOK AROUND, you are not as bad off as some!!!
