"Unhappy Holidays"

2009
Feb
12

I usually pay more attention when Days of Note get bunched together like they are now, but there are so many other things to deal with. Still, considering that today is both Abraham Lincoln’s* and Charles Darwin’s 200th Birthdays, instead of “fired” or “laid off”, today’s job actions should be described as “freeings” or “natural selections”… And tomorrow, Friday the 13th, all layoffs should be either “bad luck” or “Michael Myers attacks”. It’s a good thing Valentine’s Day is Saturday; there is no way to describe losing your job on that day besides as a “Massacre”.

*for real, not Monday Holiday version
