06:44 am: one of the crappiest days ever
I was on my way to the gym yesterday when I got a call from one of my closest work friends (my old boss) to tell me she'd been laid off.

So were 6-8 other people, every one of whom I know, every one of whom I respect very much, every one of whom was a major contributor to the company, most of whom I genuinely like.

I didn't make it to the gym.

I also didn't get much work done.

I spent most of the day on the phone, just trying to make sense out of it and help other people make sense out of it.

There is no sense to be made, from what I can tell. It just sucks.

Shit.

My job is safe, at least through the end of the year. Dunno 'bout after that. Dunno if I'll want to stay. I've loved working at this company. But I don't know if it can possibly be the same place.

Double shit shit.

Meanwhile, it's Teddy's first day of first grade.

Rabbit, rabbit, motherfuckers.

oh, that sucks. we've been going through layoffs every 6 months or so for the last 2 years, and it's killing morale because we keep losing so many work friends. i hope your job is safe for as long as possible, and that your friends find work soon. :(

We've been stable for the last year, though we had round after round of shiitake before that - layoffs, mandatory furloughs, etc.

The new president is very, very different from the previous leaders and no one has quite figured him out yet.

So sorry, boobalah (sp?) I've been through it, too, and there's no making sense of some decisions. Hugs from here, too.

Sorry I missed your comment earlier. I've not been all in there. :sigh:
