Merry Xmas enjoy the Sh@# Sandwich

Today right after lunch(bad news is best on a full stomach I guess) we had a big company wide meeting; all 33 of us. The economy sucks, Merry Xmas your getting an unemployment vacation for the holidays. December 19 everyone gets laid off for 2-3 weeks. I say laid off because they say we're getting called back, but after the meeting they pulled out the logging axe & started lopping off upper management heads. OUCH! two so far, probably 2 more before done(only 5 left) One being the guy I share an office with. Going to be lonely next week. I'd guess there will be no return without upper management. I've known for several weeks that it was probably coming but its a real slap in the face when it actually happens. Cross season ended at noon. Happy holidays my ass. What sucks is I work with a lot of guys who have nothing to their name, I hope they can at least stay warm for the holidays. I guess its good they waited till after deer season so they at least have food in the freezer(I think I'm one of 3 @ work who doesn't deer hunt).

  3. Sorry to hear the bad news. Hopefully something better will find you soon. Remember you've got a healthy happy family and that's a lot to be thankful for. Cross is over-rated and heard a fad too.

  8. Just follow the "family first" advice from Ted, Kal, and JB, and you'll end up a better person for it. A month from now, nobody will even know or care whether any of us raced Nationals or not, no matter what place we end up getting.
