At the end of last week, my company laid off five more people. Considering that we laid off six people just four weeks ago (and one other person two weeks ago), I didn’t think we had very many people left to lay off. The current economic crisis is really starting to hit closer to home. Luckily, I’m still safe (for now), but I feel bad that a lot of my (former) coworkers are now out of jobs.
On an even more depressing note, my best friend sent a mass email this morning containing the obituary for his mom. She passed away yesterday. I can’t even imagine the pain my friend is feeling right now. I’m still trying to really process the news too; I don’t really deal well with death.
Life can really suck sometimes. I hate it when bad things happen to good people.
