Those who know me may have noticed that I have been spending a ton of time on the board the last few weeks, getting into everybody's business, and that's because I have been laid off, not used to this, in 18 years in this company I had never been laid off for longer than 1 week at a time, so I simply don't know how to deal with this, it's all new to me. I thank God everyday for PM, and all my brothers here, that allow me to come on here and express my opinions, the board has helped me deal with this lay off greatly. Also had plenty of time to learn new workouts and diets. For those who are laid off, What other productive activities can you suggest to make the best of this, I am going back to work soon, but I may have a few more weeks off here and there. Open for all suggestions. God bless you all. Minister.

I'm not right now, but have been in the past. I warn you, if it drags on too long, you get use to it and going back is a bitch. In the mean-time, honestly, enjoy the time off.

Been there. About 5 years ago I was laid off and it took me 3 months to find a new job. I just about went insane, and drove my family that way too. I don't do well with alot of time off, so I drank way too much. Stay strong bro.
I might be quiting my job in a few months to pursue something closer to our family, and its scary as hell.

I was thinking about getting out of the military and seeing whats out there. Huge qualifications but damn, Im gonna miss the retirement, and the health/dental/life insurance forever....but theres gotta be somethin easier than what Im doin now, 70+ hrs a week aint no joke...paycheck reflects something like an hourly wage of 3 bucks....immigrants who work for pennys make more than me on an hourly basis lol

Chris, you have a way to make the best of time and supplement your income, I'm happy for you and your family. I do have a few small jobs I do here and there, but I do miss the steady income, we'll make it, but I have never seen it this bad. Isn't the recession suppose to be over? Wasn't the stimulus packages suppose to have kicked in and fix everything by now? Our so called leaders have no idea what they are doing. Blessings. Minister.

To be honest , I am enjoying the time off, it's nice to come and go as you please, come on here and spend time lurking arount the board, watch TV till 2:00 AM, get up at 9:00 AM and make a hearty breakfast, train at any time you please, hey this isn't too bad, LOL. God bless you. Minister.

I am going back to work soon, this just has been a rough beginning of the year, have worked 4 weeks so far this year, and I have never been off for that long in 26 years in the construction business, thanks for the encouraging words, I always keep a positive attitude towards whatever situation I face. Good luck in pursuing your new career , God bless you. Minister

Yes sir, I'm 100% with you Gunsmith, I do whatever I gotta do to feed the family, been doing some nasty jobs lately, I would have passed on them in a different time, but anything that supplements the income is fair game now. I just thank the good Lord that we live in this country so full of opportunities , and there is always something out there to do to provide. God bless you all. Minister.

Losing your job after 18 years is a terrible experience. I lost my job about a year ago, and am launching a new biz now. (wish me luck!)

Good to hear you expect to be working in a few weeks. I spent my free time working out, reading, hanging out with my family, and most importantly planning my next business move. The economy has changed and a lot of things that used to work don't now ... So one has to adapt.

Have you been to college? If not, would you consider using the GI bill?

I'm unemployed y'all and started donating plasma twice a week . . 50 bucks a pop!

You're not alone...I've been keeping busy spending time with the kid, meeting up with friends, finally tackling home projects that were long overdue, etc (when I'm not on PM, of course). Don't let it get you down...consider it a blessing. The job market will turn around...and you'll have less time to do these other things in life.

I was never laid off, but to any bros out there looking for work here is some advice. Always keep your resume handy and spread it all over the web. Craigslist, Yahoo Hot Jobs, Career Builder, Monster.com. When I transitioned from the medical field to sales three years ago these websites came in handy.
