*sigh* Layofs at work today. We all have to be in by 11 so that we can find out whether or not we still have jobs. Even if I still have a job, I suspect that life is going to start sucking more after tomorrow. If nothing else, I am the keeper of the mailing lists, and it's always depressing to see the mass "please remove this employee" requests come rolling in.
Ok. Girding loins and whatnot. Time to go in. Wish me luck.
Our group has lost three (one of whom doesn't know yet (how's that for a cliffhanger?)) and one who knew he was either going to be laid off or fired that day. Things could definitely worse in our group. Unfortunately, in its grand wisdom, the company has decided to spread out the layoffs over three days, to maximize the tension or something. So I am still keeping my fingers crossed for my friends. Wish them luck.
But now, I am going to go join my friends from abuse (who learned that they were almost all laid off today) and help drink some of fimbul's excess beer. Back later.
Apparently, drinking in the afternoon, then coming home and cooking and eating a large dinner with another drink leads to drowsiness. Huh. Who woulda thunk it?
