How did you get laid off?

Sometimes, just talking about something helps one move on from a negative situation. There’s a Web site called How I Got Laid Off that allows people to vent to the world about their experience of losing their job. There’s some pretty eye-opening stories on there, including a person who was fired after having open-heart surgery and lost their health insurance benefits.

So we’re asking those in metro Atlanta and beyond: How did you end up unemployed? Did the experience make you sad, angry or just baffled? Do you think your employer handled the situation correctly, considering the circumstances? (We do ask that you refrain from naming specific companies and people in your account. We reserve the right to edit or remove posts that violate these guidelines.)
