So DDi laid me off right.... Well shortly after DDi decided to sell off a portion of their company. Just so happens, that portion was the part that I did most of my work in. Well the two guys that are buying that part of the company worked for DDi when I was doing most of my work in that area. Now they own this new company and of course since DDi let me go they have no IT guys. This is really important right now because they have A LOT of changes they need to make. The former CFO of Value Added at DDi called me and asked if I wanted to do some contract work for him and the former President of Value Added at DDi. Sure, what's better than one job, two jobs. I'll be working a few nights and some weekends but once it's done then I'll be the guy to do all the normal maintenance. I guess I can use this money to catch back up on the money I spend while unemployed. Speaking of that, I noticed something strange. I was out of work for about a month and a half, but because I got 6 weeks of severance, plus paid time off and vacation, not to mention my tax refund, I've got more money in the bank right now than I have ever had in my life! That's pretty scary.
