I kept working after everyone else had been laid off
I was unhappy after I was passed over for a raise and everybody else got one. I asked to be transferred to another department and there was a job available. Every once in awhile I would overhear some a******* talking about me leaving their section because I got passed over for a raise but I ignored them.
About five months into this situation the section I had left was forced out of business. Their job had actually become illegal. They were laid off. Everyone of them. I was the only person who had ever worked that job that still worked there.
The whole company was on the verge of going out of business except for one small department but before that happened I got a job with an insurance and worked there until I retired.
