When the going gets tough, the tough get blogging. Or something like that.
We are at DEFCON 1 in our office. For anyone that isn’t familiar with that term it stands for Defense Condition 1. It is the highest alert condition and it means that an attack is imminent. And it is today. I can feel it.
You know I feel fortunate to still have a job and I feel sorry for anyone that has lost theirs. But let me tell you what has happened since you have been laid off.
First off the company is still here and operating. Everyone that has remained has had to double up and do twice as much work and for the same pay. The attitudes in the office are very low and there is a lot of grumbling going on. Upper management however isn’t grumbling because there were no layoffs in that area. And since there was all this extra money lying around after the employee cuts, upper management gave themselves a raise just to insure that they keep quiet. Life is good. At the top that is.
As I mentioned there is a lot of grumbling going on and attitudes are flaring. One of the supervisors here has a really bad attitude. It is worse than usual if that is possible. Instead of picking up the pace he is actually slowing down. Well my boss caught on to this and has decided that I need to do some of his work in addition to the two jobs I am already doing. But the good news is that his job is easy so I am able to do two jobs, part of this guys job and still fit in a little me time. In my me-time I made the following poster and put it on our office door;

ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK
So far we have had no visitors since I posted the sign. I think it is working.
Have a great day,
