My house was broken into yesterday, and aside from the inconvenience of suffering losses of a broken video machine and a broken hi-fi, I am pissed off with the reaction of people I tell. "You have to live with it, I guess", and "That's the way life is" are comments that annoy me, because something can be done about the crime in this country.
The company has now on its third CEO since the retrenchments. He seems all right, but has no sparkling personality, and he can't smile.
In the month since my last comments, my manager resigned, and 13 people company-wide were retrenched. That constitutes around 25% of our workforce, so it's a big hit.
Well here we are. Quarter past eight in the morning. I can't get no sleep. Well, sort of. We got a new CEO yesterday after the last one resigned. Sure, we're confident that the company is in good hands since the majority buyout last year, but some of us are worried that the essence has gone that made this company great.
