The reality of the economic downturn

28 01 2009

Four people at work lost their jobs today.
It wasn’t unexpected. We’d been warned it was coming a while ago, but it was still a bit of a shock.
Thankfully, I still have my job. However, I realised how hard it is to talk to people when they are upset or distressed.
Not a nice day.

Why, I’m offended that you’d ask! Buy you’d need to ask my bosses that question.
