Not sure about South Africa guy but he worked on different projects so wasn’t really involved with our stuff.

    So yes, they saved money by getting rid of me. They also lost a ton of knowledge. Their loss. I’m glad I’m gone.
    Are you over age 40? Could let have let you go to pay someone else more? If so, age discrimination?

    I loved working from home. Had some office mates who could not do it... not disciplined enough... and chose to come into the office even though not required to do so. I was afraid they would ruin it for the rest of us.

    But really this isn’t worth it. I’m glad to be rid of them. They were awful.
