Context

Looking down at the post I wrote last night, I can't help thinking that it would read a lot angrier had I written it after I was laid off this morning.

Vote Obama. I'd like to get a new job as quickly as possible.

Sorry to hear that. I'll keep my ears open. (May a World Series Ring will soften the blow?)

sorry to hear that but ya know soon you will be telling the story about how if this hadn't happened the next great thing may have been missed. I am an optimist can't help it.

Congrats on the World Series. At least one good thing happened in an otherwise shit sandwich day. :(

Crap!

There are going to be some cuts at our company, too. More to come as we find out.

Oh Rob, I am so sorry. As one who's been in a similar situation myself, you have my deepest sympathy. But you also have a lot of talent, a great wife (who's also still employed, yay) and a lot of friends pulling for you.

Send me your resume and I'll start shopping it around.

Oh hey yeah, if you're looking for more editing work, send me a copy of your resume and I'll keep it handy if I hear of anything on the book side of things.

Rob S. said...

Thanks KT, and Chris. I'm still updating my resume, but I'll be getting it to you both tout suite.

And K, you're in the city next week, right? Will you be free for lunch anytime?

Rob S. said...

And of course, thanks to all the rest of you. I have really great friends, and you're all among them.
