Almost there

Today, I discovered that my contract start date is exactly 2 days outside of the furlough date. Meaning instead of taking 80% of my salary, I'm only getting 40% (thanks to the company). This would be fine if I hadn't just moved countries to get this job. FML

This person moved countries and is likely going through this without family or friends nearby so give them a break. Don’t be such a jerk when someone is obviously having a hard time. People need to be taking care of each other right now, not being rude because they’re upset.

In a normal time, I'd agree, but with the vast number suddenly driven to 0%, I think the OP's complaint is poorly timed.

In Hurricane Ike, my fence blew down and I shut the fuck up because so many around me lost entire homes.
