to see an increase in our fees to them of about 8% but since we cannot
increase our fees right now due to the dismal state of our economy, we
will have to lay off six of our employees instead. This has really been
eating at me for a while, as we believe we are family here and I didn't
w how to choose who will have to go.

So, this is what I did. I strolled thru our parking lot and found 8
Obama bumper stickers on our employees' cars and have decided these
folks will be the first to be laid off. I can't think of a more fair way
to approach this problem. These folks wanted change; I gave it to them.
If you have a better idea, let me know.

Sincerely
that's a good one. i almost hope that actually happened. but it'd be a lawsuit for sure. lol

d, that was great.

and i have to agree with paul and d. everyone wanted this "change," and its fitting that the people see it in real terms that they can relate to.

dan, as far as i'm concerned, this isnt about the election, or obama at all, but about the proposed economic policy that will affect all our lives.

Haha, I love how you all were bush bashing, and saying how bad he is, and counting down the days untill he is out, and now, as soon as someone else comes along, you are doing the exact same thing with him... although to a lesser extent, but then again this is just the first week and a half, so im sure before to long he's going to be right up there (or maybe down there??) with bush to you guys...
