Suck it up, Buttercup

I saw this article yesterday on my phone and after reading it, I couldn’t get over how whiny it was.

Here is a guy who lost his “Dream Job” at Tesla and was compelled to whine about it on line!

Suck it up, Buttercup.  Crap happens.  Anyone who has worked for more than a few years has lost a job.  You are not special.  Over 40 or more years of employment I am pretty sure that this won’t be the only job you lose.  There are all manner of reasons you might lose a job, so don’t be surprised.  Sometimes businesses close, divisions are closed, there are down turns in business, businesses fail, and when that happens you have lots of company in the unemployment line!

Get your resume polished up, get it out there in the world, but together a plan to find a new job.  Work at getting a job as if it is your job, because it is now your job!

And, get over yourself!  Be happy that you had your dream job because a lot of people don’t ever get the opportunity to have theirs.
