130 lives

Posted Jun 16 2008 9:02pm
It was a bad day at work today.



The place that employs me announced it was laying off 130 people, about 10 percent of our workforce.



That's 130 lives. 130 families. 130 people who woke up Monday with a job and who'll wake up Tuesday without one.



I knew a lot of them. Drank many an adult beverage with some of them. Talked sports with them. Sat next to one of them. Bitched with them. Cheered with them. Shared kiddo pictures with them. Danced with them at weddings. Mourned with them at funerals.



Sigh.



There will be a lot of "good-byes" to old friends and a lot of drinking this week.
