Today the Dark Hand of Job Death passed over my place of employment and I emerged unscathed. One of my three fellow team members, however, did not. She informed me her position had been eliminated, and, being the Estrogen Monkey that I am right now, I promptly burst into tears. There are so many things wrong with the way the whole layoff went down that I can't begin to get into it. Let's just say I have a tough row to hoe ahead of me and a bottle of pinot calling my name.
