    Betty did the right thing

    Alex never did anything wrong. She was hired as the company was restructuring, to assists in the restructuring. It was business. Everyone thinks Alex had a vendetta, or was acting on ill will. Betty’s job was “abolished” during Alex’s FIRST WEEK at her new job, it was just Alex’s job to tell Betty.
    Remember when the other guy (Eric, I think) was summoned to Alex’s office to be fired, and Betty stole his chair BEFORE he was fired? That was more sinister than anything Alex did!

    If you can see her for what she is, then you can hold onto the friendship… it’s when you don’t see her flaws that you end up disappointed and hurt

    Plus, she appears to be Betty’s only friend.

    No, everyone thinks that Alex acted without a conscience and no remorse, much like a sociopath, she does not believe she has done anything wrong, and while ethically she is right, when it comes to friendship she did not act like one. Seemed to me that she had no qualms in letting Betty go. And while I believe that Betty has taken the higher road here, I know that I for one would have not been able to do so. It would have been the end of the friendship as far as I am concerned.

    the issue is that Alex took the job knowing she was hired to fire people and she did not care at all. I certainly wouldn’t want a friend like that.

    I would rather have no friends than a friend like HIGH AND MIGHTY ALEX! What is the difference?

    @Kathy Mc

    I agree entirely. I have a friend who became my manager, and about 6 months later she had to lay me off (along with some others). I don’t hold it against her — she hadn’t taken the job to lay people off, she apologized at the time, and she gave me as much advance notice as possible so I could job hunt while still employed. That’s what friends do. Alex didn’t act like a friend.

    agree with you at @tirasmol. One of the things about Alex’s job – is that she was given a list – of who must go. Did she do by department? Alphabetically? Haphazardly? Or did she leave Betty for close to the end? Thus allowing Betty more take home pay. The company goodbye package figures are still the same, but the longer you stay…. depends the severance package.
