Hi everyone. I’d like to thank everyone who covered for me last week. I was closing down the project I’ve been working on for the last two years. Supposedly, temporarily, but the client laid off 80% of their staff until the end of May, so I don’t have high hopes. Its like watching a baby bird get pushed out of the nest without all of its feathers grown in. I have one more week of work to do, and then I’m on the lay-off count myself. Well, I’ve actually got two weeks of PTO that I can take, and as of right now, as long as we have our PTO requests in before Thursday of the week before, they will let us take PTO and pay us. I never thought I’d be grateful to be able to take my own PTO six weeks ago. I’ve got a couple of leads on jobs, so I’m not worried about gold-brickin’ it on Trumpemployment for too long. Hopefully, everyone else who has been laid off has the same sort of prospects.

I usually make fun of Group X Hardest Hit articles, but I can see where this is especially hard on teens. I had a good family, but being able to get away from them was necessary for my sanity. I felt helpless and useless enough without just sitting around all day, stuck at home. Hmm, now that I review those last two sentences, not as much has changed in the last 25 years.
I mean, it’s no SugarFree story, but damn…
And here’s an article that made me check the date and make sure it wasn’t published last Wednesday.
