Anxious

Before I left work today, I got told that a few people I work with were let go this afternoon. I actually work closely with two of the people laid off and was very surprised to hear about it. I have never been fired(I don't count the time I broke the Taco Villa sign) so when I heard about this it really shocked me.

You know that feeling you get when you just barely avoid a car accident or you are sitting in class and the teacher picks the guy next to you to answer a question you didn't know the answer to? That's the feeling I have. I almost feel like it could have been me or something.

It is very strange to have people that you just talked to all of a sudden no longer have a job. Plus, I didn't learn about it until it already happened which made it even more unbelievable. I guess I am lucky, or at least luckier than the people who got canned today.

That is all,

They fired people on a Tuesday? That sucks that they made them come to work for Monday. Haven't they watched Office Space? You are supposed to fire people on Fridays; it causes less of a scene.

I'm glad you still have a job! Another one of my work friends is leaving....seems to be a trend these days. Makes it hard to come to work in the morning - a little lacking in motivation.
