So I have an amazing job at Lexus as a receptionist and I work with some of the most amazing girls I have ever met in my time in my department. I was sitting at work today and we were all having an amazing time as always when we got notice that our general manager wanted to have a meeting with us at 2. Our minds were wondering like crazy with what the meeting could be about. No one saw what was coming. We were all waiting for him and he told me and another receptionist to go back and answer the phones. Next thing I know all six girls I work with come through the door with tears streaming down their face. They all got laid off. Everyone except me and 2 other receptionists. They told them this was their last day and they'd give them one week extra pay. Talk about a slap in the effin face. My heart goes out to all those girls, one was pregnant, one has a 2 year old, one just got out of a 3 year relationship and just moved on her own, and the others had their own struggels as well. I don't really know what the point of this post is except I now know how lucky I am to have kept this job and that I wish my best to all those girls who are like my sisters and to anyone else who is going through the same thing in such hard times.
