    Re: Lay

    I've been laid off. It is certainly not a pleasant experience.

    I know the feeling as well. But since it was so long ago, I don't find it so miserable as I did just after being laid off. Now I am in work again and can't complain. I wish you all the best in finding another, maybe better, job, RonBee.

    Um, I didn't mean that it happened recently. The experience that I was talking about happened in 2004, so the pain of that experience is pretty much in the past.



    (Prefer working again to in work again.)

    Oh, I thought you were talking about the recent past. Sorry. I'm sure it would have been more obvious to me if there had been an adverbial used, like before.
