Sunday 160 - Damned Economy

A single voice in cube town asks.

"Where's Lauren?"

Silence follows.

"She was let go yesterday,"

comes the softened reply.

Silence ensues.

I miss you my friend.


This is a Sunday 160.
Take the Challenge if you dare.

I love it when them "in the know" call the bottom. hey we hit the bottom it's all up from here.

well I am not one of them "in the know" so I am calling bullshit. We haven't hit the bottom when over 500,000 a week are being laid off, fired or otherwise terminated.

Unfortunately, there have been so many of these changes. I am sorry your friend is gone.

WM & Nessa- Corporate America sucks. I think they sometimes use the state of the economy as an excuse to line the pockets of those at the top by lopping off the heads of those on the front lines. When you think about it...the more laid off, the less money spent. The less money spent, the slower the production of goods, the more people laid off. I'm no economist but this seems like a vicious cycle.
