I saw that Hallmark is now selling sympathy cards for becoming unemployed.
I’m not making this up. I had to do some checking to make sure it wasn’t a joke.
Personally, I think this is one of the worst ideas that Hallmark has ever come out with. I just don’t see who would ever buy these, mainly because I can’t see who would ever want to get one.
I lost my job rather abruptly in 2005. The story is for another time, but basically, I had a job one minute, got called into what I thought was a routine meeting, and five minutes later was in the car with my box of stuff on my way home.
After I got home, I started alerting friends and family to what had happened. I started networking and all that.
