I could use some good thoughts...

A couple of Tuesdays ago, Heatron made a company-wide announcement:

5% across the board pay cut
No Christmas bonus
No performance bonus
No more 401k match
No raises
No tuition reimbursement

Two days later, they eliminated my position.

So, I'm back in the hunt for another job. All good thoughts my way would be appreciated.

Man, Mike, you just can't catch a break. Sorry to hear about your new job, too. . .

Hang in there. If best thoughts help, I'll send them by the bushel. . .

Thanks, folks! It's much appreciated

Yeah, I can collect unemployment. Hopefully, I won't have to too long!

sorry to hear that Mike.

Here's a good thought.


sisters. possibly even twins. 25-30 years old, a blonde and a brunette. perky and toned. matching revealing outfits. both ready and willing to take care of your every desire.

I've been away too long! Dude, that sucks! I'll think the positive thoughts for you. I just got off the unemployment ride a few weeks back, so there is light at the end of the tunnel. You don't make it a habit to play on the train tracks, do you?

Later,

Charlie
