Default Darn economy!

Well I got laid off today. I thought working for a smaller company had stability, boy was I wrong. Thank god I finished my tank before today. Anyone else feeling the economy slump?

The telephone business has definitely slowed down in Vancouver. I am the owner of a small business. Big and small - we are all feeling it.

Sorry to hear you were laid off. Make the best of it by improving some skills, and you will get hired again in no time!

Oh man. Sorry guys....that really sucks My job relies entirely upon government funding and private donations, so who knows. Unfortunately, underage sexual exploitation doesn't stop, despite an economic slump; fortunately, that means I probably will get to keep my job.

I just heard on the news yesterday that Calgary has the best economy in the World. (First Canada, then Calgary, is the best in Canada).
