It was quiet today - most of the co workers that had big ass hairy questions for me mentioned their big ass hairy question a few days before and when I answered them I got nice "I'm off today!" emails of various flavors.

The bombshell came whistling in from HR. We were told we wouldn't have many more layoffs, but according to the head of HR, we will. All vague, no details. Sigh. Its not the layoffs that bug me - I'm not a crybaby after all, and I would still laugh if I got laid off - its the stupidity of the jerk around, the yes/no thing. Yet again HR proves that they are not working in your interest particularly.

And right now the City of Seattle Transportation Dept is digging up the street in front of our offices. My office is below ground, under the sidewalk, so when the jackhammer digging up the street gets going, the sound and the effect are indescribable. Like a pre-earthquake.
