Yeah, it hit home today. After five and a half years of running a press just like this, I was let go from my job. I was responsible for printing signs and forms for 36 retail clothing stores throughout the eastern half of the USA. Well, make that 26 stores now, since they're closing ten in the coming months. It was a one man operation, and I was it . Keeping up with impossible workloads, last year I printed over 1 million signs. Then today, of all the ironic twists, I was laid off just as I was half way through printing 15,000 job applications. I cleaned out my desk, deleted my files from the work computer and bid adieu to the job I thought I'd retire at. Welcome to 2009. Obama, can you spare a dime??
Oh, and I finished the job too.
