Surplused

[ #8883 ]

I received my notification today that I'd been surplused. I'm one of those people who intended to work at the same company for thirty years and then retire; I was about to hit my five year mark next year.

All's not over; I'll be looking around within the company and have every confidence that I'll find a different position. Hopefully involving Perl. If it's not in the description, I intend to bring it to the table as one of the best tools for the job.

I'll probably be committing some resume blasphemy here in the next few days. Thanks, Andy!

I have sixty days' notice and will be paid for sixty more days, but my last day will actually be December 30th unless I find another job.
