It’s Friday night, December 16th about 10:00 p.m. and my boss called me to let me know I’d been laid off. “But wait, it’s not midnight yet and the House passed the budget“, I say. “No, if things don’t get passed you can’t come to work on Monday”, he said.
So I’m a little ticked, to say the least. Ticked because I’ve been “laid off”? No, ticked because this knee jerk call woke up my kids. Ticked because the Hill can’t seem to get anything done until the 11th (and a half) hour. Ticked because this makes fantastic news.
Come Monday morning it will be business as usual. I just hope my kids aren’t cranky.
