I too went through a few weeks of depression, but now I need to worry about the future. I've been looking for employment, but with the market down there are few leads. And as a corporate locksmith with theft and fraud on my record it makes it rather difficult - and my ex-employer knows that!!!
It's a sad, sad state of affairs when businesses will stoop to this level to avoid layoffs which will affect their unemployment insurance premiums.
A nurse was recently fired (but reinstated) for posting "I had a day from hell at work today" on Facebook. Their reason for firing? It seems that stating something like that on a public forum where readers can look to your profile to see where you work constitutes Defamation Of Character against your employer. The nurse was given a suspension and told to refrain from any negative comments against her employer in any public forum, including, but not limited to, internet forums, public gatherings, or media outlets.
And thanks everyone for your kind words and warm hearts
