Licking a 9 volt battery

That's the only description I can give at the moment for what it feels like here at the job. The CEO has determined that the walking or staying paper....whichever one I get, will be given on Friday. I don't think my stomach or my heart or brain can take much more of this!

I couldn't help it..my eyes started to water and then I got angry. I don't normally get angry so for me to get angry means that when I blow up, I let it all out. Trust me, it took me going outside in 115 degree heat just to cool off.

I would never, ever put my staff through such emotional upheaval. It's just not in me to cause more pain than I have to.

So, I'm going to go find a 9 volt battery, and stick my tongue on it as a reminder that pain doesn't last always. Before long, it will all be just a memory.

I'm so sorry you have to deal with this. Maybe you can make yourself something to help while you make me something to cure my Ebola??

I worked in corporate outplacement for over five years; there's an effective way to do what's (euphemistically) called "separation planning." Your boss is definitely not going about it the right way.

I'm sending positive vibes, but remember, whatever happens is part of the divine unfolding of the universe. If you lose your job, it's a sign that it's time to go on to bigger and better.

I;m sorry things are being so difficult, Simone. Remember, God will take you through anythin He leads you too..

BTW run do not walk to the library and check out the book, "who moved my cheese" by Spencer Johnson, it will take you about i hour to read the whole thing and you will, feel better.

Good luck! Hang in there! Sorry you have such a stressful situation going on. Will keep my fingers crossed for you but I agree with the other commenter--when one door closes, another opens. This is your year no matter what!! Positive energy is coming your way!!!

Ugh, i hate when they stretch out the inevitable! Good luck. I hope you get the staying papers.

(((HUGS))) Next time we hang out I am going to teach you how to text.

I sent a text to you that asked,
"when do you find out?"
You replied, "Cc"
I asked every teenager and adult in this house what that meant. Not one person could give me anything that made sense. I finally decided you must need Cheesecake.

I love you girl. You know I am a phone call away.

Is that really a good idea, woman? I mean really...LOL You might as well let someone run over your foot. :)

I've been where you are, twice. Sitting, waiting, wondering...and then the feelings are mixed when you get skipped but the lady next to you is escorted out. It hurts, no matter who it is. I hope that all ends up "right" for you. And sometimes we don't know what right is until we're forced to face it.

Hang in there. I'm cheering you on!!!!

You better eat that ounce of Ben and Jerry's ice cream before to soften the blow woman! No, seriously, I'm sending you a big virtual hug right now. I hope things go the way you want them to on Friday. Gosh, I hate waiting (for anything)! My heart goes out to you. You seem like a strong woman with great confidence so whatever happens, you'll make it through! We're listening and thinking of you in the mean time!

Crazy how some individuals don't consider the feelings of others. Friday soon come and you'll know. Whatever happens, you're more than just your job.

Take care!!
