furloughed- a promise they’ll rehire you once things are better. Plus (sometimes) you get to keep benefits and a small percentage of your salary (10,20%)

Fired- your job is gone, usually because you fucked up. You’re not working there again. Laid off- your job is gone. Collect unemployment and sign up for COBRA.
Furloughed- Your job is temporarily gone, and you won’t get paid, but we’re still going to give you benefits. Your job will come back in the future.

Hey everyone. Unfortunately, I was laid off this week. I was in corporate operations for a healthcare company. My job entailed negotiating contracts and other things with stakeholders and lots of data analysis for tracking ITP . If anyone could help me out that would be really appreciated. Thank you.

After 6 years of temporary contracts and unstable situations, I find my dream job in my dream company. All of a sudden the world goes upside down and I get laid off. I start sending hundreds of applications, with only 2 recruiters getting back to me to say I don’t have experience for the job (this is how it works in Italy). Add a terrible health situation in my family and it seems there’s no light at the end of the tunnel. Ugh. 😞

I started dating my girlfriend the summer. In the last month, we’ve both been busy with work and when we see each other, maybe twice a week, we’ve just been watching movies, cuddling, cooking, etc.

We were on the phone when she said her dad mentioned that we “cohabitate a lot” but don’t go out on many dates. I’m a little offended by the criticism, seeing as I don’t feel a dearth of dating/affection. And now I feel like our relationship is under scrutiny. Am I overreacting?
