Well, the press releases have been out for a while, so I can say it. Bloody massive layoffs going down today. Management's got their heads in anatomically impossible places. They appear to being taking senior developers. Probably the "higher saleries first" idea. Thing is, once you factor in benefits, the salary delta isn't that big. A good friend and one of two people who've worked here that I consider a mentor just took the long walk to the conference room. I don't know if I'm going to cry, vomit or both. Only thing on my playlist today is Bad Religion. A person w/ way more experience, a wife and kids is getting the axe instead of me, who's young, single, no kids, and quite frankly doesn't know squat. Life bloody well sucks.

Ok, how about "in addition to" as opposed to "instead of." And a repeat of the last line above.

Time to turn my resume on.
