Well that's it. I was laid off on Thursday along with everyone else in the call center. The HR person was very nice. I don't think she noticed the Abattoir sign or the Woody Allen photo. We had a party after she left, and it was a real barn-burner. We had beer, wings, and a pinata filled with candy and cigarettes. And things are looking pretty good job-wise. I'm pretty sure that I'll have a couple of offers by the end of the week. But I'm going to miss the old job quite a bit. I'm going to miss a couple of the people terribly. And someday I'll tell you what happened to the snack machine.
