Just Checking In – 12/4
Its December already? Wow, this year has gone by pretty quickly.
Anyway, this is not an actual, content-filled update. I’m just stopping by to say that I’m here and not neglecting the site. While I actually have quite a bit to write about, currently I’m not really in a good state of mind to write. At least, not something coherent/entertaining that I would be comfortable with posting. I have this personal policy about not throwing up crap, so I’d rather do nothing rather than put up a sub-par piece. With any luck, next week I’ll be back on track and can write again.
Since I’m here, I guess I can give you all an update on the Sour Apples saga, since I wouldn’t want to make a new entry (Part 9?!) just for this. I met up with some of my former coworkers earlier this week for lunch, and I was surprised to find that there had been huge layoffs – at least 10 employees. That may not seem like a lot, but when you are talking about a small company (maybe 30-40 people tops), its quite a chunk. On Monday, the president made the announcement, and for all those laid off, their last day of work was the next day – talk about no warning!
Also, apparently at some point, regarding my last paycheck, the president openly admitted that he withheld my pay specifically just to piss me off. Yeah, he’s a charming fellow, ain’t he? At this point, I can only laugh about it and pity him, really.
But anyway, I’ll get back on track with entries when I can actually write something worth reading. Thank you for your patience.
