At least THIS time if it goes south for me personally, i can early retire if i need to as the 'company' wont go away, just many in our agency.  If i cant do a lateral into another agency, then I go find something back in private sector to supplement income a bit until the house is paid off and to re-gain insurance ( the bigger deal ). Too young for medicaid or SS ( or is that medicare, i can never remember which is which )

In previous collapses like this, i was too young, so i was simply screwed and just had to start over.  I did get out before others did as i saw it coming, but it was the same result, leaving and starting over.

there is a reason why the movie Office Space brought in the management consultants for the opening scenes.

Against better judgement i ordered a new laptop for myself. i dont NEED one.I didnt really need to be wasting money. But i did anyway.  I have grown sort of fond of this little flip-top chromebook i have. Wasn't sure id like the idea, but its actually kind of neat having both a tablet and a laptop at same time. Not even taken my real tablet out of the house since i got it. Problem is its really low on storage, like 16g for the OS and only 10" ( its also ARM, a selling point, for me anyway :) ).  So the new one is 13" ( i'm getting old.. :( ) and 256g. It is intel in this case.

Shipping from china ( i know.. shoot me ) with an eta of 2.5 weeks.  I'm taking bets with people at the office that it shows up before they find my macbook. Got asked again by purchasing yesterday " have you seen your new computer yet ".

Well, i guess Apple won the race. Got an email that its waiting for me in our dispatch area. WFH today so it will get picked up tomorrow. If i had ordered them at same time. the 'personal' laptop would have beat it by a month at least.

“But the plans were on display…”
“On display? I eventually had to go down to the cellar to find them.”
“That’s the display department.”
“With a flashlight.”
“Ah, well, the lights had probably gone.”
“So had the stairs.”
“But look, you found the notice, didn’t you?”
“Yes,” said Arthur, “yes I did. It was on display in the bottom of a locked filing cabinet stuck in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying ‘Beware of the Leopard.”

“There’s no point in acting surprised about it. All the planning charts and demolition orders have been on display at your local planning department in Alpha Centauri for 50 of your Earth years, so you’ve had plenty of time to lodge any formal complaint and it’s far too late to start making a fuss about it now. … What do you mean you’ve never been to Alpha Centauri? Oh, for heaven’s sake, mankind, it’s only four light years away, you know. I’m sorry, but if you can’t be bothered to take an interest in local affairs, that’s your own lookout. Energize the demolition beams.”

This used to happen at Intel quite often. 

As if they didn't understand we all had e-mail, pagers, and push-to-talk Motorola phones that had a group broadcast mode.
