Then we receive a blah, blah, blah, etc..., for an hour and a half on how bad the economy is, tough times ahead, they forsee at least another 2-3 years of bad times because of the current administration and their policies and bad decisions for business, etc.... Also, we will all see a change in our paychecks with additional taxes coming out. We have to all tighten our belts, be more productive, give back more to the company! Oh, the company did buy a new Keurig coffee machine, but you need to buy your own coffee to use in it; HUH???
So, I'll put in a another way; from what I heard thru my ears:
Times are tough,
And things are hard,
so here's your (a PG rated blank space here) Christmas card!
(Sorry for that, but that just really sets me off the deep end knowing full well that the management got their bonuses and raises and we get a new coffee machine that we have to buy our own coffee inorder to use it!)
Yup, just a lovely way to start a New year! No raises again, No nothing! The prices of everything has gone up and still going up and our salaries remain flat. I guess I should be happy that they haven't started cutting people loose, yet!!! I guess that will be in a matter of time!
Ugggh, I'm mad and it's not even lunch yet. I should be quiet, or they might take that away next!!!!
How dare you say that 4-letter word on a family website.
Sorry to hear that.
That is a rough day to start a day, a membership to the jelly of the month club would have been better.
