Bummer times, man

This week, my work issued layoff notices to 14 people. I still have a job but I feel so bad for those who were affected that I don't really feel relieved.

I really hope the CA big wigs get their acts together soon so the cities don't become worse off. A $42 billion shortfall is beyond ridiculous, CA!!And by the way, I can't wait to get my IOU for my state tax refund. I bet if I owed CA a few hundred bucks, I would get into deep doodoo for sending Arnold an IOU. He'd probably terminate my a$$ or something.

Ugh. I'm cranky.

I'm just glad that you still have a job! I hope everything turns out alright.

Yeah, that is crazy about the IOU's. It is hard to see layoffs. I was laid off twice in the past. You always hate to leave your routine and work mates. The next morning is the hardest. I think that is really when it hits you. I am happy you still have your job!

Wow, that's definitely bittersweet. It would be hard to feel truly relieved. Sort of survivors guilt I'm guessing. Each time B survives a set of layoffs I think it makes me more instead of less nervous, just wondering about next time.

Michigan's budget has been sucking for a while, but I haven't heard about IOUs yet. I hope they don't decide to copy that from CA!!

I am sorry chicky. I've been bumming a little too. Too many friends that have been laid off. One of T's BFFs' company laid off 500 people. I just don't know what to say... Hang in there. What goes down must come up right? :/ PS. Miss you.
