  • My company which up till now has faired well is finally feeling it. They just ended all overtime which is a good chunk of my income...

    This blows...

    On the bright side more time for surfing. Poor surfing.

    I feel bad for anyone graduating college this year.

    Religion is for people who are afraid to go to hell. Spirituality is for people who been to hell and don't want to go back.

    that covers most businesses these days
    Life is pleasant. Death is peaceful. It's the transition that's troublesome.

  • from CNN - total of 482,000 jobs lost since Nov 2008. 
    http://money.cnn.com/news/specials/storysupplement/joblosses/2008/
     
    My company also just got hit with a 25% healthcare increase and the state of NJ is running out of unemployment dollars.  If the pot of money dips too low, a mandatory payroll tax increase kicks in.
     
    This is going to suck a lot worse before it gets better.  Need some waves to clear the head.
