I guess the foreshadowing for this summer started in October of 2009 when the Canadians bought Liquor Barn in Kentucky and I started having stomach cramps. I predicted things would change and most of that came true by April and July of 2010.
When I was called into the boss's office on April 9th, 2010, I thought we were going to talk about upcoming changes and new opportunities not expecting to hear "your services are being out sourced and we no longer have a position for you." What? You look to your local management "friends" seeking support and some sort of explanation and all you get are eyes diverted looking away. Thanks. You showed your true colors and suckered me into your "friendship" after all these years that really was never there. Angry? Yes. Moving on? Trying but, still confused and very mistrustful of a few people and some more specific.
So you start all over and take a few weeks off to relax and digest what has happened then start looking for a new job. When one has done some sort of theatre work for years and then spend 13 years in the retail liquor business new jobs are hard to come by.
