I got laid off today. I didn't even like the job that much but I'm a bit sad to see it go.
Fortunately my wife and I have been saving for a down payment a house so we have a fairly fat stack of cash in the bank to live on should we need to. I got a decent but not great severance package and two months of COBRA paid by the company.
The folks who weren't laid off had to lose some benefits and take a 10% pay cut so I probably wouldn't have stuck around long anyway.
So, yeah, I'm not freaking out or anything yet. I know we'll be ok but losing your jobs sucks no matter what.
Anyone need a UNIX/Linux admin?
