I lost my job, and I’m planning to send a scathing letter

Dear Amy: I am a 58-year-old worker who was recently laid off.

My company hired someone to turn around the department and she failed miserably. The company terminated her and then threw the babies out with the bathwater, getting rid of me and another coworker at the same time.

I guess it worked out well for them because the other fired coworker and I were outspoken about what was going on in our department. We knew the new business model would fail, and it did.

The hiring manager who created this mess in this extremely toxic environment is a nightmare. Most employees fear her because she is cruel, condescending, and a narcissist. I have seen her reduce people to tears. She is a bully.

This person needs to be told off, and I want to be the one to do it.

Should I express myself, copying her manager and the CEO, as people need to know what’s going on? Or should I let it go and move on?

I really feel the need to express myself so that I can leave this behind.

– Terminated

Dear Terminated: Definitely write the letter. Get it all out!

Tape the letter to your refrigerator for a week so that every time you reach for the milk, you see it. Grrrr; you really let her have it!

And then, when you’ve worked through your rage about this, destroy the letter and move on with the next phase of your life.

You “knew the new business model would fail and it did.” You were outspoken about problems while you were working there.

Given the company’s choice to excise your team, they must be aware of the issues that affected it.

In my (limited) experience, there are times when someone is hired specifically to eliminate positions. And, once they’ve done so, they get the ax.

My larger point is that – even though everything you say is true – your choice to express your unfiltered views could end up backfiring on you in unforeseen ways, affecting your ability to get another position.

Dear Amy: I am friends with a single mother who works two low-wage jobs.

There are some months when she can’t pay her bills. I have loaned her money many times.

The problem is that it’s like pulling teeth to get my money back.

She seems to feel that since I get a decent retirement check and Social Security check, I don’t need my money back.
