My company announced today they're laying off 1000 people or about 14% of the workforce. It will happen the week of January 5.  
We've known this has been coming, but were waiting for the shoe to fall. It's a lot more than was generally expected. I have no idea if I'll be affected. I can see it going either way.  
My holiday is now officially ruined. Bah Humbug, and have a Happy Fscking New Year.  
LowFlyingMule: Sorry man. They NEED you though!!!
Sorry buddy
shigpit: Hope you're OK, but if not we can have a playdate. :)
Hang in there
pdxpogo: Don't invite trouble in before it gets there! Be as positive as you can and find out how you can help the transition.
Henry: To here that Boz.
Worst Christmas Ever...
pneum0nic: Where do you think you're going? Nobody's leaving. Nobody's walking out on this fun, old-fashioned family Christmas. No, no. We're all in this together. This is a full-blown, four-alarm holiday emergency here. We're gonna press on, and we're gonna have the hap, hap, happiest Christmas since Bing Crosby tap-danced with Danny fncking Kaye. And when Santa squeezes his fat white ass down that chimney tonight, he's gonna find the jolliest bunch of assholes this side of the nuthouse.
Sorry to hear that
SpearmintFur: I really hope you're not affected though.
FoolProof: What Champy said. I hope it's those other poor saps.
ultrafastx: I'm guessing you work for EA? Bummer to hear about the layoffs.
