Slow Surprise

I've been a little quiet - haven't I? My bad.

I'm not in a bad mood. I'm not in a happy one either.

I have alluded to in the last few posts of a 'maybe I'll post about it sometime later' thing. I guess this is the bestest time as any - though it won't be chock full of details.

A week or so ago my company was bought out bigger organization. I'm thinking that won't reallllllly affect me or my job. But one really never knows. I believe I am protected by what I do and what I know and just my client list, but I suppose any trained monkey could do what I do. They'd just have to be willing to travel 50% of the time.

I feel bad for the folks who work in HR, IT or finance. A bigger place has those things built-in and probably does it better. And there is really no reason to have redundancies. Again - time will tell.

My last two places of employ were of the 33,000 and 50,000 worker-bees size. My new place (well, if 13 months can be considered 'new') has 680 folks. Had. Had! My NEW NEW place is one of the 50 largest companies in the U.S. (I could tell you how high up, but then you'd look it up and figure out where I will be working and where I'm currently working.....and I just cannot be bothered with all your snooping.)

So much for working for a boutique organization.

I don't know what will change. I don't know how......or when. I only know why. ....and that my friends is the almighty dollar.

Ugh. I can see why you would be quiet. Not knowing is a confounding condition. And since we are separated twins, I know you can well imagine the worst possible scenario.

Stay positive, my friend. Nothing says, "Don't look at me" like a positive mental attitude!

Looking at the Fortune 50 and trying to guess. Is it UPS or Walgreens?
