    Hi Kenkht
    That's really good. May I ask what you do?

    Thanks

But thats the way the world works ... the higher ups hold the power, the local unions are not strong enough unlike in western countries ... its sad i know .. but that's reality for you.
    Agree.
    Sometimes it is not who made the most mistakes or who cost more to keep.
    It's just who is small enough to be kicked out or kicked around.
    Sad but true.

    The more shaky the company was the busier I got with photography. It kept my sanity and let me forget about my predication. I made use of the opportunity to build a large enough collection and a presence in the net. It gave me a kick at my butt that I needed to so something myself. Didn't know that was the beginning of the road to self-employment in photography.

    I think it's the mind that is problem as some may have the resources to last throught the long winter. Keep occupied and do something useful.

    A friend who lived with his parents when he got retrenched he was afraid to tell his parents. He just pretended to go to work everyday. I thought I read such story in the papers but it was played in front of my eyes.

    Don't suffer alone. Look for support among friends or even spiritual support.
    Ok....this must be one of your joke of the century.......how to tell when you are serious and when you are joking.........

    Some because of retrenchment have been given a new lease in their life.

    Like phoenix out of ashes they rise.

    New career direction, new business venture.

    Some take it as blessing in disguise.

    Sometimes we need the fall before we can rise higher.

    Good luck and good health to all.
