"Fox to make reality TV show out of company layoffs"

Well. Of course, my first thought was "Not so different from executions as public entertainment venue. My oh my. Haven't we evolved."

So where's my bread?

I had the exact same thought. The thought that immediately followed is that all other "reality TV shows" had volunteers. This one, you're forced to participate or lose your job, which you might lose anyway. Lovely choice.

I'm really surprised that they would make a show like that. I wonder what kind of focus group they used to reach the conclusion that this would be profitable? What demographic would find that sort of thing to be entertaining?

Oh, but if you were contemplating leaving, think of how much *fun* you could have...:)

LOL! Horrible. Have you seen "Avenue Q"? There's an actual showtune that spells out the word, even.

Hi, I read through the comments so far and well, hate to burst the bubble, but even in this ecomomy it's your co-workers who are most likely to get you canned. Not the boss.

So, I wonder when the Fox crew is showing up at my office?

Easter Day
Well, my Friends Happy Easter and all my love. I am going to take the boys to my parents this afternoon for dinner and then maybe a movie or something. Though I pray what seems like every minute lately I can not bring myself to get the kids to church. Maybe that is something I need to start doing so they can make supportive connections? A lot on the brain as you would say, Brain tired, (heart too). Heidi
