Because I'm still bent over the election....

This was an email that I received today.

Dear Fellow Business Executives,

As the CFO of this business that employs 140 people, I have resigned myself to the fact that Barrack Obama will be our next President, and that our taxes and government fees will increase in a BIG way.

To compensate for these increases, I figure that our Clients will have to see an increase in our fees to them by 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 eight 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 know how to choose who will have to go. So, this is what I did. I strolled through our parking lot and found 8 Obama bumper stickers on our employees' cars and have decided that 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 any better ideas, please let me know.

Sincerely,

I'm sorry to hear of your struggles. I, too, have a court case coming up that I have not written on my blog about. I'll keep your family in my prayers.
