The Great Redundo

So ANT have kicked me out.

I was told last week that they were proposing to outsource my role (and also all documentation, my boggling readers) and that consequently, unless alternative employment could be found for me in a two-week consultation period, I would be made redundant. (This was about three weeks after giving me more line management responsibility and telling me this was the first step in growing my team.)

Today they cut short the consultation period, told me there was nothing suitable, and asked me to clear my desk and sling my hook. Which I did, via the pub with some workmates. People were still asking me questions about JavaScript and DOM virtually as I was walking out of the door.

Their loss.

I suspect, but cannot prove, that the directors have been replaced with space lizards. I think I saw one of them devouring a stunned gerbil on Monday.

No concrete plan yet except to take some time off. I might go freelance again.
