Steady chasing paper


I’m still here working at Microsoft Corp. Do you guys still have jobs? We lost a friend from the Tick. I’m no economist, but I’ll tell you that it probably sucks if you lose your job. I hope you, especially those of you in countries who are getting the worst side of this thing, are doing OK.

Is this a stupid post? Who cares what i hope for Team World Economy, I just work in marketing and drink a lot of tea. But I do care, actually. So I stand by it.

Hello, customers and partners and co-workers. I hope you still have jobs.

Your friend,
Trika

    Took a 10% pay cut but very thankful I still have a job.  Glad to see you’re still with us!

    On a positive note the price of a cup of coffee is coming down… it’s all swings and roundabouts

  9. Hey Trika, I am independent consultant, so I cannot get fired, but my clients can slow down. And they did. This are tough times…

    Only 8 people made it to roll call on my blog. That makes me worry about the other 6 readers. I hope they still have jobs!

    L nice to see your distinctive typing. I’d recognize that font anywhere

    A i’m glad you still have a job, too. If coffee is that cheap I’ll plan a trip to IE. Take that, Seattle.

    G Hang in there.

    Goodluck on your exams J and B

    Hi Trika,

    still working hard on a very nice job for the government (MOD/coast guard), with nice co-workers. I dont have to worry about keeping my job.

    However, work is not the same anymore since you changed job at Microsoft 😉

    But I am glad to hear something from you!

    Trika it is nice to read a a deep serious from you – it’s nice that someone speaks out the worries we all might have.

    Worry is ok, but we can’t take a look in the future if this is like the Dot-Com-Bubble or a lightly salient down in the normal up- and downs of economy.

    Companys that survive this down of economy are going to benefit from it. If you manage such a crisis you stand invigorated afterwards!

    Still here.  Trika – you need an independent humor blog and reap in some ad revenue.  I seriously think you are a web sensation waiting to happen.  Not everyone can smuggle a banana into the country and is willing to blog about it.

    Sincerely,

    A Fan
