Jobless again and more

I shouldn't be angry with my old boss, but I guess I am, a little.
Yesterday, I go to work, not thinking anything is wrong. Work the whole day. GF™ calls at 5pm saying she just got up and says that we'll be going out for supper, since nothing was thawed. I hang up and then a minute later, she calls again. The temp agency I was going through for this job just called like a second after she hung up the phone. I was laid off.
The thing I'm upset about is that I have to find out at the end of the day when my boss is there the entire time. Now, granted, he may not have known when I got to work that morning, but as soon as he knew, he should have pulled me to the side and let me decide if I want to leave right then to start looking for a job or wait until the end of the day. Calling the temp aganecy is more of a formality, in my opinion, because obviously I'm more than likely going to be calling them up and telling them they let me go.

Blagh

The good news out of all this is that they said I was excellent and fast and that when they start hiring again, they'll call for me.
Guess I just don't like being strung along at least without my knowledge. I mean, my only complaint throoughout my entire time there was the commute home. Other than that, I think I would have loved it there. Kinda reminded me of Cummins Power Generation only without the generators and a much better boss.


On the bright side, this gives me a chance to catch up on chores around the apartment and start excersizing as I have been packing on or maintaining the same weight since the spring, I think. Speaking of which, I just got back from a short walk up to pay off my student loans. Tried paying them totally off online, but web site wouldn't let me. So, I paid off nearly all of it and will take care off it after the New Year at the latest.
