Gawker published my layoff story!

No names, but this rock looks alarmingly familiar

I got the boot from a major consulting firm during the first dotcom meltdown. I won’t name the company, but I went on to work there a total of three times, and it has a green dot in its logo (hint, hint).

Gawker was looking for tales of layoff woe, and mine was brutal, particularly for me. So, check out the horror stories on Gawker and try to figure out which one was mine (yet another hint, moron). I don’t think it was the worst they’ve published, but I definitely wouldn’t want to revisit the situation.

To all of you out there looking, best of luck. To all of you working, I hope I don’t see you on Gawker any time soon (at least not for this reason).
