Victim of an Economic Downturn

I have lost my job. Due to my lack of performance in clerical/ accounting duties, I no longer hold the title of "office babe." That has been passed on to a fortyish old man who has accounting skills. So now I am left without an unpaid job. Do you know what the unemployment is on a non paying job? I'm sure you can do the math, but it isn't very much. Fortunately, I have my well paying job to fall back on. This gives me great comfort in knowing that I have a vacation fund waiting for me during this time of trial. The job transfer was actually very slick. I never really got the axe, Kevin just slowly gave him more and more of my responsibilities for the business. He kept saying "I'm hiring so you don't have to do as much." But I know he was just trying to let me go without a fight. There was actually a disagreement when I found that the new guy had not sent out an invoice. Ha! I was indispensable. But when it really came down to it, I didn't want the job. I was forced into it by an entrepreneur who saw me as cheap, easy labor. I'm much more adept at sticking someone with an IV than going through all those crinkled up receipts. I'm going to chalk this one up to Obama.
P.S. For those of you reading my blog, you can now post comments.


  1. Did you really post "cheap & EASY" - man I am typing so s l o w l y in the hopes I can attempt to not really "say what ..I..need to say" [thanks John Mayer]. Oh and this "comment" will disappear in two hours if you do not "post a comment" on mine. All is fair in love [sisterhood] & WAR.

  2. That is the best laugh that I have had in a long time! Keep it coming.
