Circuit City: The Epilogue in Haiku

Unfortunately
Things did not go as we hoped
Hope springs eternal

So Dad will be home
At least for a little while
He will find a job

Great at what he does
He won't be unemployed long
A little time off...

To all our friends, thanks for your thoughts and prayers. We'll be A-OK; but do please keep all those whose situation changed today in your hearts.

Oh dear, I'm sorry Cheryl. I have faith that something great will come of this.

Something's really going around. I know an awful lot of people laid off or otherwise had their jobs impacted in just the last few days.

Just keeping my fingers crossed, putting my head down, and hoping this passes soon.

noble pig said...

Oh no, I am so sorry Cheryl, that is such a bummer and just deflates the mood doesn't it? I wish him all the best in finding a new and improved job he loves. Why do they always ruin a perfectly good weekend with this crap, I mean better on Monday when you can hit the strrets and unemplyment and everything else...oh and it's a holiday weekend too...just great. Now I'm mad.
