Just a little salt please…

27 Apr

OK let me take the band aide off really fast… 

Honey was laid off by Uncle Sam. 

It’s been;
stressful
hurtful
worrysome
hard
rough
Did I meantion stressful…?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

He was told “great job” but, we don’t have money for you so, please clean out your office don’t call us, we will call you… 
No, it didn’t happen like that it just feels like it. 
He was on the bottom of the totem pole and he had to go buh-bye…. 
The program that was funding Honey’s position was cut.  We knew it was happening, we just were hoping that they would find him another route to keep him on the team… 

NOPE… 

(Let me just say this really does have a happy ending… )

Whereas, I am VERY proud of the fact that I am a( part time )military wife… 
Sometimes I wonder WHO AND WHY they put people in the positions they do…  Not that I am talking crap about the military but, I can put you in touch with a FEW military wives they will tell you stories that will make your head spin (like the Exorcist). 
I’m not saying you don’t have dumb supervisors in the civilian sector  you do…  Plenty… 
It’s just…  
Well… 
Just be patient with me… 

Onward with the story…

When honey  cleaned out his office, he knew somebody else was going to be occupying it and he left all the pertinent marketing materials that this person was going to need. 
Meaning…  He took all his personal stuff…  AND cleaned it…  Like he was TOLD TO DO… ( solider clean the office…  eye eye sir…)
Well…
One day at lunch…  He gets a phone call.. ( mind you he has been laid off for DAMN NEAR A MONTH) he was told he needed to come and clean out his office… 
This was AFTER SOMEBODY MOVED IN… ( In my book that doesn’t make it his office anymore that makes it the last person occupying it RIGHT???????)
This person, MADE IT  THEIR OWN AND WAS USING THE MATERIALS LEFT because DUDE taking over HIS office  NEEDED IT!! 
Now you want my husband who has been out of work a month to come, and clean an office that he hasn’t used …
WHAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
YOU KIDDING ME?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!!?!?!?!?!?!????????????????????
Um NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  

Talk  about  adding salt to the wound…  
At the time it wasn’t funny… 
My heart hurt for my husband, he really enjoyed the job he did and by the way… he didn’t go and re-clean out the office… 
It’s funny now…. 
We get a HUGE kick out of it!  He He…

Yea!  No moz...
