"A void at the top"

So today is August 15, the mid-point of the third quarter. Six months since the last layoffs and, if the company I work for is to behave predictably, time for another round.

Only today there's no news to report.

I don't mean that the blade came down and I was spared. I mean nothing happened.

I asked my boss about this and, instead of telling me not to worry, he said, "Can't happen this week. There's a void at the top." Huh? He means that our new Big Boss is on vacation this week, and I guess it would be bad form to not be in the office when the quick and the dead receive their final judgement.

So maybe Monday. Or maybe not at all.

I wish I could stop worrying about this. But I don't know how.

2013 August Happiness Challenge -- Day 14

Today's happiness: "It's covered." The DVD drive on my MacBook had to be replaced. The charge for parts and service? $0, thank you very much. Even though it's years old, it's still under warranty! Oh, how I didn't feel like spending money on this right now. Oh, how I'm relieved I didn't have to.
