Well that sucks.
At least in this current business climate they don't seem to be as concerned about how/why you left the last job, they're all aware it's use 'em and discard 'em game.

Don't spend a lot of time or effort retaliating, one or two small mail bombs should be enough. Just move forward, that's the best revenge.

Hmm. Reckon I'm joining you..... learned this morning our main supplier stopped delivering to us over the weekend due to unpaid bills (a "third-party invoice processing error"). Then this afternoon notice of a mandatory all store meeting 7am tomorrow. This is happening in all stores at the same time. After the mandatory store directors' conference call two hours ago for which they only got a couple hours warning. mmmmm.

The 2020 recession is on, apparently. Good luck to everyone.

I'm just worried about health insurance now I'm sole provider and all three kids are students who rely on it. Also I won't be able to have a much needed vacation

Fukkit. Just caught up with this thread. Big V, and Monster - what a bummer, each!
Here’s hoping something better than a turd floats by you for you to grab asap.

This may just be the Cellar Recession. I'm not sure how indicative the three of us are. Don't the economic numbers still looks like very slow growth?

I just hope my paperwork clears the gubmint website so my new employer can charge for services.
