I am so sorry x

A text?! That’s appalling and I’m so sorry to hear that.

CovidCanDoOne Sun 29-Nov-20 17:36:51

Thanks all. I was taken aback that it was through text. It seems generic so I’m assuming it’s not just me.
I completely understand the new rules are tough for business owners.
It was my lifeline so to speak. I live alone & loved the team spirit we had.
Very tough times ahead for everyone

Oh you poor thing, I'm really sorry. How shit just before Christmas, I really feel for you....

That's awful feel so sorry for you. By text is poor form? flowers

SansaSnark Sun 29-Nov-20 18:03:46

That is really shit, I am sorry.

Are you entitled to any redundancy money which may tide you over Christmas?

To do it via text is very callous, even if it is a tough time for them, too.

I’m so sorry. I really don’t agree with the hospitality rules at all. Wishing you all the best in finding a new job flowers

So sorry to hear that, OP

ScottishStottie Sun 29-Nov-20 18:06:34

Thats awful im so sorry. Cant believe they did it by text, how callous.

Can i ask what the company is? Or is it an independant? If you dont want to name them feel free to pm me if you want.

My job is directly related to pub trade so despwrately trying to keep tabs of what our clients are doing in terms of whether my job is at risk.

Gosh how awful, real shame they could not at least furlough you as the scheme extends till March

So sorry to hear that you have lost your job. It is an awful time for many. Hopefully you will find another soon flowers

Really sorry OP. That's harsh. Hope better things come along in 2021 flowers

CovidCanDoOne Sun 29-Nov-20 18:11:43

Thanks again. I’m (was) a SE chef since May 2019 so I don’t qualify for even the SE grant.
It’s a massive blow.
But I will bounce back but you know when you think it will never happen to you ??
My thoughts tonight (as I gulp my glass of wine) who with everyone who is suffering in whatever way this year

I’m so sorry. I hope you find something that helps tide you over. This is shit. flowers

RunningFromInsanity Sun 29-Nov-20 18:13:45

Lots of delivery jobs around over Xmas, for supermarkets or self employed for Amazon, Hermes etc? Just if you need something to tide you over.

AutoIncorrect Sun 29-Nov-20 18:15:29

So sorry OP I find out Wednesday if I will be made redundant along with 6 others. Shit times. Hope something comes along quick for you.

WitchesBritchesPumpkinPants Sun 29-Nov-20 18:16:41

I'm so sorry to hear that!!

SE chef. Good skills though!! Try advertising for delivered meals?? (Guess you'd need a licence?). Or looking for a live in job for a few months?

You have a great skill - try to find a way to use it 🌷

What tier is the pub going into?

stovetopespresso Sun 29-Nov-20 18:17:38

What a shock for you, wishing you loads of luck in the coming weeks

WitchesBritchesPumpkinPants Sun 29-Nov-20 18:18:09

A friends husband is earning quite a bit SE with 'Just Eats'. I know it's not ideal, but they're very flexible & pay ok.

So sorry OP I find out Wednesday if I will be made redundant along with 6 others. Shit times. Hope something comes along quick for you.

Hopefully you won't be! Can they furlough?

What industry/tier etc?

I’m so sorry OP, wishing you all the best
