The office was crazy last week…. Someone was “let go” last Wednesday, sending us reeling: crying on the sidewalk outside the building, long confused conversations, lots of chocolate milkshakes, panic, mistrust, questioning everything we’ve ever believed about the goodness of where we work. Inside the office it felt like we were in a Communist state — the bosses closed their doors while we underlings whispered frightened gossip. By Friday we were all exhausted but feeling semi-sane again. Hopefully the weekend will give us a chance to catch our breath.
