Work Woe - Updates and all that

-- 12:00am --
Ah, another post of my ever not-so-exciting work woes.
It's Monday. Eleven hours to go.

My internal "odds" thing has changed a bit since I last wrote anything.
As of midnight, I am looking at:
Stay: 33%
Laid off: 33%
Transfer: 33%

Back to even.

Quiet weekend. Got sunburned. Slept a lot. Rode my bike.
Stay tuned for updates as they happen.

In the meantime

-- 9:30am --
This was the most lethargic commute ever. I waited for lights to change, didn't cut corners.
I literally stumbled through intersections like a 13 year old teen that doesn't want to go to the doctor.
Dragging my feet.

My stomach feels icky.
Current odds unchanged.
Stay: 33%
Laid off: 33%
Transfer: 33%

In other news, Mrs. Robot is in Wisconsin working on this documentary and went to some sort of small town parade yesterday. Naturally, there were Shriners on little mini-bikes doing their thing but tragically, there was a Shriners mini-bike wreck.
Two Shriners got taken away in an ambulance.

Robot pal and co-worker Reba just got the call and is off to meet with the department head folks.
Let's all wish her luck.

Sadly, my odds just got better.
My old boss (or one of them.. it's all very convoluted) was let go - although he assures me that with his very good severance and his Fire Island time-share that he will be all right.
Stay: 50%
Laid off: 25%
Transfer: 25%

-- 10:15am --
We just lost another guy in our department. Honestly, he's the one I really can't imagine how some departments can survive without his help.
My odds? Well. They are down again, because letting this one guy go makes no sense whatsoever.
Now, I am thinking someone is making crazy descisions.
Stay: 40%
Laid off: 30%
Transfer: 30%

-- 11:10am --
Stay: 100%
Laid off: 0%
Transfer: 0%

Woo hoo!

Are you up for lunchtime martinis? To celebrate or drown our sorrows, or at least use up the last of the T&E!

congrats, and thank our internet gods!

Finally had time to read this today. I gotta say, you had me a little worried there.
I just bought me a bottle of JWBL, and I'm raisin' the first glass to you.
Who the hell announces layoffs on a Friday?
