Tuesday freebie

December 1st, 2009 at 10:00 am

We had a pow-wow at work that involved the boss, the boss' boss, and the boss' boss's boss. Sooo, you know there would be free food. Big Grin And good stuff too! Green beans, sweet potatoes, chicken, and even steak! Woohoo! I love free food.

We had this pow-wow in order for them to update us on our site situation. It would seem that perhaps we may have as much as a year, not six months, but nobody is guaranteeing anything.

Given the situation, I suppose the mood was fairly somber, but I didn't feel that way. I was getting free food, they were telling us that we may have longer than expected, which also means that I'll have even longer to have income and save, which means I'll have even more savings to sustain myself after that.

Besides, they brought food for heaven sake, and it's not like it's their fault the site is shutting down. How can anyone get upset over that? So, I stayed over and made sure I said thank you and shook their hands.

But this impending shutdown is also a perfect example to me how life can be so uncertain, and that the only way to fight it is by creating your own financial safe harbor.

    Well, overall that sounds like good news! More time to save and plan is a good thing. It's great they are being upfront with all the employees as well.

    Yes, the only constant in life is that it is uncertain... but hey, sounds like good news all around. Free yummy food and a possible reprieve with your loss of employment. It sounds fairly optimistic and you just never know... the economy might rebound to where it will all work out.

    Sounds like you have a great outlook on the situation. I'm also excited by free food!

    Ha ha, boy you must have appeared as a bit of a weirdo - everybody else is probably worried sick. You have a plan based on worst case, so the rest is gravy ... and you probably got some for lunch.

    Nice touch that you thanked everybody. If the bosses shutting the site down can pick and choose who they want to finish up the work with, who are they gonna pick? OMG freakout person, or calm person? Calm person every time.
