Layoffs... Break-outs... Pissed off!

Posted 07-10-2009 at 08:14 PM by Sylent_Asassin

This week, my company had its third round of layoffs in the last 8 months. It was a scary time because we didn’t know if we were going to have a job. It was especially scary for me considering I’m the sole provider in my family. If I were laid off, I would be up shit creek without a paddle as I have a mortgage and all the bills to worry about.

It was really rotten the way the Company handled the incident. They sent out an email in the morning and let it simmer amongst the staff for a few hours. It was like waiting to be executed or marched away to the showers… the showers with no water. The general feeling around the office was eerie. I can only compare it to Charlton Heston’s “10 Commandments” movie where people were waiting for the death mist to claim their first born sons.

As far as work, it was a very unproductive day. People were preparing for the worst rather than continuing with their daily work rituals. Fortunately for me, I wasn’t among the victims, but I really felt for the ones that were. Work has been really slow in my department all year and we’ve been hit the hardest by the layoffs. Sometimes because of my productivity, I feel that I don’t even deserve to be amongst the working. I suppose being a "yes man" has its advantages. At any rate, it was a really tough, emotionally-taxing week. I could use a Lapdance to take my mind off of things… Yeah! Big boobs in my face is the ultimate cure-all... and a happy ending would be nice too.


For those of you that don't know, I'm in my late 30's and I still suffer from a recurring case of acne. I'm not what you would call a "pizza face," but every now and again, I'll have a period where my face will break out and whiteheads pop up like weeds. It’s quite embarrassing because you can clearly tell when someone is staring at your face because of a zit. I’ve tried various creams with little to no results. I thought about trying Proactiv since so many celebrities endorse the product-

Jessica Simpson- I love her legs.

Vanessa Williams- She has beautiful eyes.

Jennifer Love Hewitt- Whether people say she’s fat or not, I’d still hit that.

Even P. Diddy endorces the product-

Mmm!! Cassie!

Whenever I got to the local mall, I see a booth but I'm too embarassed to walk up and inquire about the product. Maybe one of these days I'll muster the gumption to actually ask a question.

Is there anyone out there in cyberland that can attest to this product? If not, is there something you’ve tried that works? I have an event to attend in the next few weeks and I can’t show up looking like "Pizza the Hutt" from Spaceballs.


I currently own 4 vehicles and received my DMV registration in the mail yesterday for my 2001 Honda. To my displeasure, it was a whopping $325. In addition to paying damn-near 10% state tax in California, our DMV fees have been TRIPLED. TRIPLED!!! Since politicians screwed up the budget, they’re going to count on the residents to bail them out. Hell, have they even entertained the thought that MAYBE EVERYONE IS HURTING FINANCIALLY? I’m going to have to refinance my house and take out an equity loan to pay off the DMV! If my little Honda is $325, my truck is going to be $1000!! Funny how Governor Schwarzenegger’s original platform for getting into office was to repeal the act of tripling the DMV fees. Ultimately, that’s what ended up being instituted. Life in California… 10% state tax, tripled DMV fees, $5 bridge tolls and a staggering 14% unemployment rate. All we have left is the good weather… and in 2012, that’ll be gone because according the Nostradamus, California is going to fall into the ocean. Don’t believe me? Just check out the 2012 trailer online. I'd post it but this software only allows for 4 images at once in blogs. WTF?!?

December 21st, 2012. Put it in your Calendars, folks. You’re going to die.

    I use Proactiv. It does work(for me). I used to get a few pimples on my nose. I tend to break out after a lot of greasy meals and then touching my face(aka pizza nights). Proactiv works, but I've found that if I stop using it, I might break out soon after. I don't know if that's the case for everyone but it is for me...most of the time. However, I haven't used it for quite some time.

    Also, you should know..Diddy sued Proactiv because it eventually broke out his skin.

    West- Thanks for the heads-up. I was going to try out the product until you mentioned that it caused Diddy to break out. I had no idea that Diddy sued the company. I did wonder why he no longer appeared in the advertisements though. Now I know... and knowing is half the battle.
