    Bwahaha! No truer words spoken Willow. I had an interview once for a manager position here in Ottawa. I knew and the company interviewing knew that the business here was likely going to be shut down. As the manager I may or may not have been asked to relocate, depending on options available when the termination occurred. Ha! During the job interview, the panel asked me how I would prefer to be terminated if or when it came time. I told them, to their surprise, that I did not want any warning- just show up one day, tell me I’m done, give me my severance cheque and escort me to the door. Then I can grieve the loss, and move onto focusing on another job right away. The anticipation pf dying is just a waste of time.

    Great post Willow.

      And did they do as you asked, did it help or was it still like having the sword of Damaclease over your head??

        Ha! They fixed that problem by not hiring me. I think – actually I know – they wanted a “yes” man for the position, some one who would do whatever they asked without question. I sort of knew that going in and could have lied and done the “Yes, sir, yes ma’am!” routine. But that is not who i am and not what would be best for the job. As the highest ranking representative of the company in town, I saw the job as needing someone who could think for themselves – which i can do well. In fact not long afterwards the man they selected as their president (who I actually happened to be acquainted with and admired) changed jobs to a competitor for the same reason (or so says the grapevine – you know at that level you never know what really happened). It is an international trucking company with about 10,000 employees BUT it is family owned and family run – and you how operations like that are – they share decision making very reluctantly. You probably know the family – the McCain’s, who own McCain French Fries and frozen foods, Maple Leaf Meat Foods, etc. And their in-house trucking company that does all their hauling plus general freight is Day & Ross – that is who was hiring a manager.

    Indeed! Isn’t that why everyone hopes to die in their sleep? 😮

    Well, Julius Ceaser was bound to die with a name like that, unlike that guy Caesar.
