The many faces of Foxie.


This afternoon, the CEO of Corporate Behemoth sent out an e-mail, thanking us all for our hard work. And explaining that Corporate Behemoth will be going through restructuring and "extensive position elimination." And wishing us all a good weekend.

And so, I did the stupidly stereotypical female thing: I went shoe shopping. I bought a pair of turquoise flats with big flowers on them.

And now I'm sitting on my couch, watching crap TV and drinking Crystal Light with vodka. Which is, frankly, disgusting.

The CEO's friendly little note wasn't a surprise. But it was just a fitting ending to a rather crappy week. And Foxie Doxie's facial expressions pretty much say it all.

So sorry to hear this. Tha can't be easy news to give, but i am always amazed at the myriad of ways companies do it poorly. I hope you have a good weekend. Put down the Crystal Light and do something better with the vodka!

Well that pretty much sucks, I'm sure. Sorry to hear, and hope you make it past the cuts--if that's what you want. I've had many a friend/relative dearly wait for the "package" (severance, etc.), only to be retained and have the workplace suck worse than before...

OK, I'm a ray of sunshine, aren't I? Sorry. Carry on with the vodka. And yeah for Foxie's fabulous faces!

(Sorry for previous deletion... horrible typo had to go)

What? is that considered good corporate communications practice? I'll spare you all the cliches people usually hand out. Just know that another cubicle jockey is hoping for the best.

Yeah, I can see how that would nicely round of a crappy week. If it's any consolation (though I'm sure it isn't), my life is in tatters right now - my "marriage" (we're not married, but we've been together 14 years and have 2 daughters and a cat) is falling apart because I suspect my "husband" is mentally deranged and I don't drink so can't even turn to alcohol. I may have to watch Zac Efron in Hairspray, though.
Chin up, Cha Cha, thing's will all work out for the best. At least, that's what I keep telling myself...

say i am you said...

Oof. So sorry to hear. What poor management practice to send out an email. Wishing you the best...

What jerkwads--why do they handle that kind of thing so badly? Must be men in charge.
And I think Crystal Light is gross with or without booze mixed in.
But cute shoes! Yay!
