We had a big company-wide conference call explaining the developments, which are major. The CEO actually started crying at the end of the call. Probably tears of joy. His bank account just increased exponentially. I’m sure his golden parachute is quite large.
Please pardon my bitterness during the next few days. Be looking for me online alot more. No need to keep my nose to the grindstone if I’ll be out on my ass in the new year. Someone jokingly said our new office hours will be from 10:00 to 2:30 each day with a two hour lunch.
Christmas should be down right merry.
>You have every right to be a little bitter. What industry are you in, anyway?
>Real estate. I’m considering packing it all in and moving to Vegas to be a blackjack dealer.
>well that certainly sucks. i’m drinking because it’s monday.
>hang in there! Vegas sounds nice!
I drank last night too. Just ’cause.
>I’m sorry. Dealing with anything “corporate” just sucks.
