The truth is finally out there!

So as some of you already know, everyone's suspicions about me are correct and as of the 24th Dec I will officially be redundant.

It is in no way related to the GFC, it is because the business I work for has sold all its car dealerships and I my role is very dealership focussed.

Some of you may be thinking "those bastards, Naut is both talented and devilishly handsome". Well while I am both those things, I am also very comfortable with their decision and their treatment of me. 2 months is a pretty good notice period and my payout will be a very handy bunch of cash based on the NSW award which kicks the Vic awards arse! They were also very accommodating when I was facing all the recent personal dramas.

I did have a chuckle yesterday as the directors came to advise me and then had to wait over an hour for me as I was "at a meeting with a supplier". I was actually in an hour long job interview!

Anyway, at this stage my job prospects are looking good. I have had a couple of unsolicited approaches and some of the prospects look quite good. Now if I could just win the lotto ...........


  1. Fingers and toes and eyes crossed for you, Naut!

  2. Never nice hearing that your services are no longer required, but it's nice that your getting a payout, they're being decent and you've got prospects.

  3. Thanks Jen, would make an interesting photo of you with everything crossed!

    Bangar - You pretty much nailed the situation.

  4. Finding it difficult to eat and wipe my bum with my fingers crossed for the last 24 hours.

    Hoping for results soon. V. Soon.

  5. and a merry xmas to you as well!!

    Shite timing but as long as your prospects are good and they'll have to give you truckloads of money, more power to you.

  6. Well, Merry Christmas! Here's your present of no job.

    Your present bunch did give you a good severance package, though. Hard to knock that. Beats going to work one day and finding a padlock on the place.

    Good luck! Hope your other leads come through!

  7. Let's hope you get a job offer in the next 7 days, so that you don't have to attend job interviews while you're in the early stages of growing The Magnum P.I.

  8. Sorry about the job loss – but I wish you good luck with your next one. Sometimes these changes work out for the better in the long run: hopefully it’ll prove to be the case with you.

  9. Sucks to be given the royal kick.. but hell.. as u said they are being decent to u so thats gotta be a good thing..
    Guess u might be able to figure ina few weeks break before starting ur new career.

    Good luck to you, especially with winning the Lotto..

  10. Hopefully its onward and upward and this is no more than a well paid holiday before starting in a new job.

  11. TOP SHIT..thats a wicked result. If you win tats before me I will be srsly pissed.
    Good luck

  12. Good luck mate - will shortly be in the same boat, just sans severance coin. May all your options be beneficial options.
