Heads Will Roll

It can really suck to be a government contractor. Especially when your manager possesses the IQ of a fruit bat and is threatening to ruin lives by laying people off for no valid reason. Nicknames have been used to protect the moronic…

Spacely is guaranteeing that heads will roll by October, "Some people will not be here next year that are here now."

We got a 25 minute explanation for why he needs to chop some of us and zero minutes explaining why his statements don't even remotely match up with what the VP told us last Friday: that no layoffs are coming. Spacely claims that none of the cutting can take place until he gets official VP approval, "And I'm not gonna ask him if I can do this. I'm just gonna say, 'Hey, this is what I'm doing. Do you approve?'"

Question: how can the staff cuts be mandatory if he has to get approval first?

Naturally questions arise. We ask him how far in advance the doomed would be warned but we couldn't get a straight answer out of him. The best part? People are getting canned but our department is still going ahead with a new technology initiative. So we'll have a kickass software setup and nobody left to use it.

Spacely's final thought: "I can't seem to get promoted so I may actually disappear after the whole department gets reorganized..."

One can only hope.


Advanced beyond all that you can possibly comprehend with 100% of your brain.
