Sorry don't want to sound like a dumb *** but what do you mean by redundant? fired?

yup loss of job/income
thanks to the global meltdown we lost half of our customer base and now our supplier tells us they are shutting doors, with no supply we are high and dry

Wow...sorry to hear that. Your family is in my thoughts.
Dec 5, '08, 10:34 PM
So sorry, Dave.... this economy is terrible, I hope things start to turn around soon.

Dave you and I turned out to be great friends after a rocky start and I truly feel for you mate. If I can help you in any way, let me know. BTW I have thought about the figure you offered me and will get back to you soon. Hang in there my friend.

Good Luck. Lost my job 3 years ago around Christmas...wasn't even given a warning or notice.
You will bounce back. I did and found an even better job just a month later. Everything happens for a reason.
