Today, many of my friends were laid off from their jobs. It's extremely frustrating and unfortunate.
What's worse is it reminded me of a quote from Office Space. We used to say it, and laugh nervously afterwards because of the dark truth behind it.
"For five years now, you've worked your ass off at Initech, hoping for a promotion or some kind of profit sharing or something. Five years of your mid-20s now, gone. And you're gonna go in tomorrow and they're gonna throw you out into the street. You know why? So Bill Lumbergh's stock will go up a quarter of a point."
