I had worked for a major telecommunications company, oh lets not be coy about it, I worked for Embarq. I was on a scheduled day off for a Doctors appointment, when I came out of my appointment I had a voicemail on my cell phone from my manager asking me to please call her as soon as possible. Well rumors of layoffs/reductions had been floating around for months, but of course the “official” company line was “we know nothing of any cut backs or workforce reductions at this time” Anyway, I called my manager and she read to me the script that she had been givin by HR. That due to the current economic situation and blah blah blah, my position had been eliminated. After 10 years of honest and faithful service, one would think that she could have waited to tell me face to face.
