Layoffs.

It’s a word of I’ve heard all my life, but never experienced first hand.

Layoffs.

My boss pulled me upstairs today and said it all in rush before I had even sat at the table. Said it all in a rush before I could even comprehend what was happening. Let him show me the figures.

“Don’t worry,” he said. “You’re staying.”

“You’re laying people off?!”

Ever intelligent. So observant.

I knew something was going on today. Saw Kim’s eyes when she came downstairs. I thought I was going to get yelled at or something. I didn’t know what he was saying, he was so nervous.

So…I still have a job.

I still have a job.

Our staff was cut in half.

I’m not going to Russia.

I’m not getting a car in November.

My friends got fired.

But I still have a job.

This is going to be a really long week…
