Tomorrow at 8:45am I'll be attending a meeting where I suspect I will hear the fate of some of my co-workers. Tomorrow announcements will be made to those who will be laid off. I'm feeling confident that I won't be one of them because I recently asked for a cornerstone to be performed on me. A conerstone is a study that is done to determine where you rank in salary. This is all supposed to be based on the industry you work in, your title, others salary in your company with the same title and your skill set. It's a well known fact that my company always pays lower than the average. At any rate they gave me some money so, I'm guessing that they wouldn't have given me the money if they were going to lay me off.

I feel a sad for my co-workers because I know some will be devastated by the news. Many of the employees at my company have worked there for 10-20+ years. I feel a little sad for myself as well because again there's another layoff which means that more responsibility will be diverted to me and those left.

I heard the song below on AOL Radio today and thought it would be appropriate for the occasion. Enjoy as life goes on.

One of the many things I admire about you is the level head on your shoulders and your strength of spirit. Whatever shall come your way in terms of workload etc, you will be okay. And, you will have a friend here to talk with whenever you want. :-)

goodluck D!

Loved the song
(ya know, that beat kinda sounded familiar...was there a song with a similiar beat that went: If there's a cure for this, I don't want it, don't want it....
I can't remember who sung it)

Okay, so it is now 9:50am. How did it go?

I know that you will be all right whatever the outcome.

I am fascinated with the way of the corporate world. I suppose that some people work for their jobs like you would expect them to work for Christ for fear of being laid off.

You strike me as the type that handles your business so your job is lucky to have you.
