I'll let her tell the story....but basically she got laid off today from American Axle after 8 years. But hopefully a caring sweet person said he would get her a job at his company in a couple months, so hopefully that will come through Mr. T!!
We're counting on you!
So now she gets to hang out with her sis and drink wine during the week since she doesn't have to work, workout and get a hot body for Summer, and ohh maybe babysit like she always said she would!!


Hang in there sis, this could be a good thing in the long run!! And don't feel to bad the majority of people we know have been laid off at one time or another!!

Well.....now that I have just joined the ranks of the unemployed & happy ......maybe a 230 million lotto winning could just make things better!!

I have worked for American A$$holes for over 8 years and I was amongst the 20 to 30 people they layed off today. I just received a promotion in January.....and I can't help but believe it was all a set up for me to get layed off!!

So.......I guess you guys will be seeing more of me at our functions since I don't have to get up at the crack of dawn....for now anyways!!

Sorry to hear that you got laided off but what a great attitude! More partying!

economists keep saying our economy is getting better but every f'ing time I turn around more and more people I know are being laid off


That stinks Robyn - 8 years is a long time to invest to get laid off. Any prospects of them taking you in full time again or do you think this was their way of letting you go?

ps. So sorry to hear that - I'm in the same boat w/you sister and it's pretty scary for me because I have the kids and the mortgage and other bills too. Not the kick in the teeth I needed as a fresh graduate, that's for sure

Thanks for your words of support!!


I think these lay offs are "permanent". Eventhough they call it a lay off...I think it is a nice way of saying, "SEE YA". I bellieve I was very well liked among the associates, but I don't think the ones that like you, keep your job. They have been laying off salary associates since before Christmas. It's weird....I thought it was such a good company to work for, but ever since they started this lay off crap....it seems like a pretty evil scenerio. I know company's lay people off every day, but AAM has not really given a good reason why they have layed off 60 salary people or more. But, O'well....I am not really that upset yet.....there are many more terrible things that happen to people every day. I have a great family, great friends, and I get sleep in!!!

What are you people feeling sorry for my new Buyer for?? She'll be in here as soon as I can push for the additional headcount. She has always been first on my list and we'll get her a big fat raise and 3 weeks vacation with 2 week paid shutdown for Xmas!! We've been planning this for awhile now, it just takes a little patience. I'll be out of the country all next month and we are moving into our new building.


Cheer up this will be the best thing that ever happened to you. Just ask Eddie!

Dude, the guy made 15% commission off the sale. It was a win-win! Cut some slack to someone you don't know anything about. Ain't nobody sweeter than me! Just pointing out to the world that its the squeaky wheel that gets the grease!

Got home a little bit ago to comfort my sweetie . . . found her on her 2nd bottle of VINO!


Just uncovered the 'tub', it's going to be an interesting evening!


I think we're going to be seeing a lot more of the ROBYNATOR on the board these days! She has me setting her all up on the home computer . . . looks like she means business!

I'm hoping the bruise will heal up by Monday . . . <_<
