The Worst Earth Day Ever

Being laid off is like finding out you have a deadly disease. You can be walking around feeling healthy as a horse. Until the doctor calls you regarding the tests you took the week before. Bam! disease……uh…layoff! Today was a beautiful day until I sat down at my desk. I spent the whole day in meetings where the discussion involved layoffs. Then they actually started laying people off in multiple states and time zones. I find it funny that people will fire everyone around you and expect you to keep working like nothing happened. Do we have desk jobs or are we invading Normandy? This is our new workforce reality. You take it one day at a time because you never know when your number will be up. I just wish we spent earth day recycling jobs instead of dumping them.
