  • Sounds a little like jealousy but its normal to feel that way. She should be more considerate about the situation. If it were me I would have said something like "Thanks for rubbing it in" and laughed it off just to get my point across.

  • It's normal to be jealous, but I think you are far more hurt, which you have every right to be.
    I'm very sorry that the company that laid you off has enough money to hand out bonuses, but not enough to hire back the people they let go.
    Keep your chin up and keep looking for a job. One will come to you eventually. {HUGS}

  • You have a friend you keep in the closet? Isn't that against the law or something?
