I lost my job today, and believe me, it was such a low impact trauma, I can hardly feel it already. The reason for mentioning it then? I phoned a mate who used to be my boss there and told him how much I had enjoyed working for him..a proper boss.
Within about an hour I got a call from an agency. The guy said "some of my friends" had been in touch and they had told him to look after me. He said he was rammed with work and if I came in tomorrow he would get me working by Monday.
There are glib and obvious things I could say about this; about staying honest and positive and keeping your friends close, but I don't really need to. A bad experience turned into a really good day. Love it!
