Sorry to hear that bro... :? Don't worry, I know it sucks but I'm a firm believer in the "everything happens for a reason" way of thinking.

I've been there before and now I can look back and say that it was for the best. Of course now it sucks but you'll be ok.

Really sorry to hear that FC. You'll be Super Duper at whatever you find next I'm sure.

This door closing will mean another one opening and you'll probably look back on this in a couple of years and see how this happening booted you to the next stage in your life which wouldn't have happened if the job hadn't evaporated. I've lost jobs before and now I can look back and see that though it sucked at the time I moved on to better (and better paying) jobs.

On a lighter note, now that you've got some time on your hands and don't need the car to go back and forth to work, why don't you call these people who are giving away a free exhaust to someone in the LA area for letting them make a prototype on their car.

Maybe not having to go to work for the next two or three weeks will get you an exhaust worth thousands of dollars! (Maybe it's "why" you got laid off!)
Good luck!
Greg

It's weird FC,
M3-GT and I were typing at EXACTLY the same time and these words were almost EXACTLY the same. Take it as a cosmic sign that it will be true for you as well........

M3-GT, what are you doing inside my head? (you were just posting in a thread of mine while I was writing this!)
