They promoted her on Friday and laid her off today? Damn that’s cold

like

I think OP got promoted but their mom was laid off.

Also, if they first promoted her, seems they were taking care of her - presumably better severance package etc. So that's the positive note you/she can appreciate! Go to her, do dinners, spend time together, be part of her life!

Don’t hesitate. Use your points and fly home. You only have one mom. You will plenty of future projects and weekends

Sorry to hear OP. Is the severance enough to take her to retirement? Hoping for silver lining.

Happened to me during the recession. Sorry to hear it, OP. Hopefully you get a chance to give her a hug soon and everything works out okay

Go hug her 🤗

Take her on a trip and get her a nice gift to do things that she enjoys during this time so she can see the positives of having more time: painting classes, yoga classes, mani/ pedi etc. She will enjoy these and see the silver lining of having more time for herself!

Well... If that's the case, the positivity I alluded to is lost a little... But OP - your mom will no doubt be thrilled to hear of your promotion! She just needs a ton of positive vibes right now. Go give those to her!

WM, how dare you apply your hetero-normative view of what a family looks like onto OP's unique situation.

Anyone else starting to feel nervous about the extra $600/week unemployment going away? Also, is it just me or does it seem stupidly misguided that the Senate/WH prefer to send another stimulus check instead of extending unemployment benefits? Stimulus checks go to a much smaller subset of the population and aren't necessarily going to help those impacted by COVID layoffs. Not to mention the argument that it disincentivizes people going back to work is dumb when there are no jobs to return to.

I’m in my mid-40s with a 7 year old and baby. Is it too late for me to back into public accounting? I was laid off last year and found a great job in a large bank.
