I'm kinda bummed today. My boss got fired. It's not that I was attached to him, I barely new him. I hate to see anyone get the axe.
I am always amazed at the number of people in the work force who aren't any good at their job but seem to always get by, and the others who get sacked over so little. A guy who doesn't even show up with 20 years on the job still employed, while a guy that tries hard but is just not so bright gets the boot. (I'm not talking about anyone in particular, just an observation.)
I once new a guy who lost his job after 30 years because he was strongly opinioned. He was the same guy for all 30 years but one day suddenly he was the plague. One of his longtime co-workers steals everything that is not nailed down yet still has a job. It really is all about personality.
Remember to pray for those less fortunate than you, the list is growing.
