busy busy

It's been a busy time. I've been helping Albert with employment matters. It seems his employer needs to downsize, and will either pay people a year's salary to go away and not come back; or else they'll sack everyone and invite them to reapply for their old jobs at less pay.  Gee, I wonder which it'll be!

Fortunately, Albert's within range of the scrap heap anyway. But imagine his colleagues with kids and mortgages! 

If Albert ends up jobless, he can always become one of these old guys who spend their days photographing flowers. 


  1. Sorry to hear about the job troubles.

    I wonder when employers are going to get the idea that if people don't work they can't spend money on products?

    Unemployed folks don't put a lot into the economy.

  2. I say!

    Abdul doesn't know how old he is. I estimate about 68 but I'm saying nothing in case he demands a luxury retirement package, like what seems to be de rigueur in the West, nowadays.

    People being paid to do nothing? What's the world coming to?

  3. Nanners. If the world was rational.

    Mingers. Quite right! If they can't pull their weight they should be put out of their misery.

  4. PS Mingers - except your good self.
