I rode down in the elevator with a pair of ladies, (both long term employees) they were talking about their counterparts in Manila, whom they had trained to take their goddam jobs. Talking about the non existing jobs on the
inhouse posting client.
"Well it is pretty obvious that they don't really expect us to find anything or hang around!"
The other replied, "Probably true, but it's all good."
That was when I said, "No."
I said no. It isn't.
They both looked at me dumbfounded.
It isn't "all good". They've shipped your jobs overseas and they are putting two highly skilled workers on the street. You wanna explain to me just how that is all good. IT FRIGGIN' SUCKS!!!
It's okay to say this sucks. Because it does. Doesn't it? What are they gonna do? Fire you? No. They've already done that.
They both laughed and said I was right. "It really does suck," one said.
"Big time suckage," the other admitted.
We talked for a little while longer. And as we parted ways they both smiled and said that they never knew what I was going to say or do! But we do feel better.
