Laid off [Jun. 2nd, 2009|09:35 pm]
Ron Newman
This afternoon around 4 pm, I was laid off after 5 1/4 years of faithful service as a Ruby, Perl, and MySQL programmer at Merrill Lextranet (formerly Legal Computer Solutions, Inc.)

Tasks for tomorrow:

- Return key and some random other stuff to the office. Say a few more goodbyes to people I didn't get to talk to between 4pm and 6pm today. (Some folks there are taking me to lunch on Friday.)

- Deposit final paycheck

- Re-read severance agreement, make sure I agree with it, sign it, and mail it back to Merrill.

- File for unemployment

- Try to relax

Good luck... I just sent you an email, which I'm guessing is a personal address rather than a company one, but in case you don't get email from me, you might let me know your current address.

Hope your severance agreement isn't too stupid. Mine said I wasn't even supposed to say it EXISTED, let alone what it contained. I made them take out that line. I was also supposed to not badmouth the company, and since I'd ALREADY DONE SO in my LJ, I made them put in an exception for blogs prior to date X. It was kind of an amusing process.
