The economy hasn't been friendly the last year or so, and thus there has been the need for layoffs at work (two so far while I've been here).
Neither time did I feel like I deserved to get laid off, but then again I bet that's what the people who get laid off are thinking. Luckily, I have now survived both.
It brings a strange mood to the work place, especially since each time one of my neighbors has been laid off, so I get to listen to the conversations they have with people. Oh well, what can you do?
I hope there isn't a need for anymore in the near future. It sucks having to worry about whether or not it's your turn this time.
