“The I’s were dotted, the T’s were crossed, and a start date was given. The paperwork and e-mails were all confirmed, the salary set and life was good! My husband excitedly put his two weeks notice in at his current employer, and blissfully looked forward to a new adventure.
The day he went to get his badge and parking pass, the hiring manager, and director sat him down the in the lobby. They told him the position was being eliminated, and they had to rescind the offer. He was jobless.
And just like that, our optimism for the future, my perfectly curated budget spreadsheets, and my visions of weekend getaways came crashing down.”
