I will be divorced from WXH for a year this summer and already Karma has come to settle up her debt with him.
I found out yesterday he lost his job. The job he had for twenty years. The only real job he ever had.
When I heard he got laid off, I couldn't resist. I texted his work cell phone. The message bounced, twice. So I called his work cell. Weird busy signal. So I called his desk phone. His voice greeting gone and replaced with the standard "this voicemail box is no longer...". I was surprised. He's gone.
The funny thing about it is I warned him. Two years ago I told him to give me his resume so I could update it because his company was giving all the signs to him that if a layoff came he would be next. He poo pooed me and never gave me his resume. And now look.
I wonder if any of OW's will pay his bills and keep him warm now.
Me - BW
Him - WH
Divorced - 7/2013

Edited to correct stupid typos.
Two steps forward and one step backwards, is still progress.

Well, you know, PhillyGirl, since you warned him 2 yrs ago about this possibility, somehow it's going to be your fault he was canned…. You predicted it and now it has happened…. you must have special powers.

Actions ALWAYS have consequences. Too bad cheaters don't consider the consequences BEFORE they create so much damage.

Big LIKE to Gemini's post!
My XWH was let go the year of Dday from a company he had been with for several years. It was a small family based company and I tend to think his showing up at the company picnic with OW a few months after Dday influenced the decision. Lol. ;-)
Together 9 yrs
Status: Divorced 4/27/11
