    I might get laid off/Can i borrow a dolla?

    Yes Fam....
    today is corporate downsizing day here at Morgan Stanley. I have a strange feeling that i will be victimized. Funny enough, i don't feel too bad. I actually don't feel anything. Life goes that way sometimes i guess. If this is my case, then i will be in florida next week for sure. but in the meantime, beg yuh a dolla?

    Don't study it.

    I hope you will remain on the black line instead of the red.

    But my question is would i work for a company that has a "Downsizing DAY".

    I just went through the same with my company. The sad thing about it is that they aren't downsizing for financial reasons.

    but life does go on

    [updated:LAST EDITED ON Aug-01-02 AT 01:41 PM (EST)]nah dred......by me saying downsizing day, i mean that today they are laying people off. it's not a company holiday...lol.......why am i laughing. i may be out of a job by 5pm today.

    But it had to happen eventually. We rely on the economy heavily and the economy has been sh!tty. Yuh see sept 11th. that day did more damage than imaginable. but what could yuh do, right....

    sorry to hear that Essi. my firm has been downsizing alot lately too. I hope I'm next. I hate it so much I want to volunteer to be laid off! Then I could get a nice little compensation package & pack to move to FL. You can have my job here at Goldman Sachs.

    [updated:LAST EDITED ON Aug-01-02 AT 02:46 PM (EST)]thank god i save like a jew. that's probably why i dont feel a way about this. im a bit stable for now. add that to the fact that my landlord is also the person who breastfed me(my mother), so im a bit safe.

    but yo salt, if we hang out and you see me hugging one drink all night, im budgeting the funds dred.....
