    Dive into your handle work for now. Let me know if you need an assistant!

    All the best
    Thanks for your encouragement, everyone. Yeah, university politics always reminds me a bit of kindergarten, and it's even worse within a med school...

    Mindbender, be careful what you are offering, the last person who offered help is coming to the shop on Sunday

    Not to make light of your situation, but I'm always a little suspicious of people who are awake at this hour of the morning . . .

    I'm a little suspicious of people who live in other time zones!

    Sorry to hear about your situation, Stefan. As a recovering lawyer, I am obligated to ask if you have started preparing your complaint based on age discrimination and violation of the ADA? And yes, I am being semi-serious, particularly if they based their decision on the time period when you were sick. Not saying it would work, but making their ******** pucker up might be worth the price of admission..

What a bunch of jerks.

    Very sorry to hear about this sir - For what it's worth I was part of a mass lay-off in February - the first couple of months are tough - but if you stay optimistic, and as much ahead of the "game" as possible -- you will end up ahead. There's always a better place to work - I hope you are able to keep from up-rooting as well.

    The problem with this is it doesn't make you very attractive to other employers.
    Best of luck Stefan.
