Here we go again!!
To all of the poor shmoes that work for the same company as we (I have two co-workers helping me with this) do: WE FEEL YOUR PAIN!
It's that wonderful holiday season again.. decorations, cool weather, family and LAY-OFFS. Welcome to the world of "I'll kiss your big ole' butt boss if you keep me working so I can afford the luxuries in life like..oh I don't know..MORTGAGE, FOOD, CLOTHES, GAS, etc."
Our omnipotent tech-managers don't let small things such as job ethics get in the way of deciding who gets laid-off and who works. They go by the old standard of "I wonder who can leave the biggest hickey on my left butt cheek this year?"
Here's to the tech-manager cronies who don't really do their jobs, but do a regular visual inspection of the boss's lower colon. We (the real workers) appreciate you soooooo much. You give us the opportunity for some self introspection and help us to realize that being a self-serving, back-stabbing, cut-throat, poo-poo sniffer may just not be the type of person we want to be. Kudos to you.
