How tacky and in poor taste is THAT?!?

My bet is that this person has few, if ANY significant and REAL friendships...! Which would be its own best consequence!

How about when you see your former boss out in public and he says "still a pushover I see" as you are assisting your children who are complaining. Oh I could... GRRR! J@cka$$!

I'd have to disagree with "Have you applied for unemployment yet". Fortunately a friend advised me to apply right away. I didn't realize that the laws had changed and that my "severance" pay didn't count as employment. The company that laid me off tried to make it look that way, but the state didn't agree and I got unemployment right away.

Remember, nobody can go back to the very beginning and make a brand new start, but anyone can start here and make a brand new end.

There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results."

10 Worst Things to Say to Someone Who Just Got Laid Off

"Someone you know just lost their job. Yikes.

You want to be supportive. You want to help them see the positive side of their misfortune. You want to buy them a drink. And you should! But please, tread carefully.

The time directly following a layoff is a delicate one. Your friend will want your help, but they may not be so receptive to your wise suggestions or burning questions. The fact of the matter is, being laid off sucks. Your comments come from a good place (of course!), but you might be surprised at how they are construed by someone whose wounds are still fresh from getting shown the door.

Here are 10 things you shouldn’t say to someone who has just been laid off."

Care to add any MORE to this list...? :-)
