A very bad day

Well I guess I,ll share some personal bad news with everyone.
This past Friday,At Charlie's Dodge,A meeting was held to inform all employees that this will be the last day of employment for everyone(two stores/100 employees) .Oh and by the way,you no longer have any medical benefits,But they took out the payment from our checks(W.T.F.).
Not to worry though,I was offered a position at a Chrysler dealership up the road .(AlthoughThe future of that store and other Chrysler stores might be in jeopardy)I have been told that Chrysler needs 5 billion by 4/1/09 to stay in business.The city that I live in(Port Saint Lucie FL.)is in extreme financial trouble.(I've been told the worst in the country).I wish all the best to everyone in this time of economic dismay.I recommend holding on to your jobs,tighten your belts and get ready for a bumpy ride.
I thought I had a bad year(08) 2009 is looking to be interesting as well.
I am not posting this to cry,But rather to enlighten everyone to the plight that is desending on us.
The funny thing is that I was more worried about not finishing my truck(go figure).
