Well it’s finally happened. Work announced today that it was laying off most of the part of the bank that I work in. 100 out of the 126 branches that we have are closing, and we’re on ninety day consultancy periods and then they review things after that.
We found out at ten thirty this morning, and two of my staff are now on gardening leave, with another here until Friday. I’ve been told they may want me to stay until the start of July before giving me two months gardening leave, though God knows what they will want me to do!
So, the downside is I will probably be out of a job soon. The upside is that I may be able to lounge around doing fuck all while getting paid for it for a couple of months.
