It's The Waiting That Kills Ya

In reference to the post below.

I hate waiting. For the next week and a half I will be waiting, waiting to see if Thursday will be my last day.

And it pisses me off that they don't have the balls to lay the contract people off face to face. They have their agencies call them and do the dirty work for them. I mean man up and do it yourself.

It's scary quite here at work. Most contract people around me have already started packed up their stuff, waiting to take it with them next Thursday so they won't have to worry about losing it.

Gone through my computer and have sent home stuff I want and will be erasing a lot of stuff next week.

Most contract people right now have the attitude why work much the next week in case they do get the boot. Why expend energy for a company that doesn't give a rats ass about them.

I really hate waiting.

I was hoping they would wait until after shutdown to get rid of people, because then I wouldn't feel guilty.

We leave on vacation next saturday.

Next saturday, it would be days after I get layed-off.

The guilt is already racking me. Do we still go even if I get layed off? Or do we cancel, even though we haven't been on vacation in 2 years and it is much needed.

Pisses me off that they won't wait until after shut-down. They I wouldn't feel guilty about going on vacation.


I hate waiting.

It's the waiting and not knowing that kills you. As for vacation. I know that Ktreva and I have canceled our vacation just due to high gas prices alone and are staying home for a week to be lazy.

Oh, that sucks. I'd prolly still go on vacation if it were me.
