Dad just told us that he lost his job. :-(
From what I've heard, the local office was closed with absolutely no warning. That means everyone who worked there was essentially laid off. I'm not sure of the reason of the closure, but the economic recession was likely a factor.
On the other hand, this could be a blessing in disguise. According to my father, his job was stressful because of office politics. The good news is that he doesn't have to deal with that crap anymore. They say every cloud has a silver lining. So true.
Regardless of what happens next, here's to hoping Dad will get a new and better job soon!
