I entirely didn’t see this coming.
Losing my job now was just sort of out of the orange.
That wasn’t the case a year and a half ago. When the pandemic shut down our offices with the zone controlled Heating and Air Conditioning, that was when I entirely worried for my job. There were layoffs pretty much instantly following us having to work from lake house in our own air conditioner. I survived that first round of job cuts so I thought I was safe. The rest of the crew worked remotely from the safety of the Heating and Air Conditioning in our homes. Remarkably, the company entirely did well. Like the people I was with and I nearly met the replace goals that were in arena prior to the pandemic. That’s pretty impressive given how numerous other companies our size failed outright. When the office reopened, I was so gleeful to get back to my office and all that zone controlled Heating and Air Conditioning. That’s when I got the shock of my life. Due to restructuring of management, I was out. And it was pretty unceremonious as well. It was a hand shake and somebody packed up my office as I was escorted out of the building. That was taxing to handle. However, I took some of the severance to set up a extreme lake house office. I cleared out the guest room and had the Heating and Air Conditioning company come in to install a ductless heat pump in that room. From there, it was all about finding whatever work I could find. Eventually, this led to myself and others being a consultant for numerous of my former competitors.
