Whiskey. Straight up.

Life. Oh life. Oh life. Do do, do do do.

A positive message from Des'ree, you'll all agree.

A positive message like the one I was writing not 15 minutes ago for all your gorgeous consumption before my attention was called to Facebook, and the Status Updates, and one of the lads confirming to his mates that we'd all lost our jobs.

As ways to find out, it was pretty gratuitous. The phone calls to confirm straight afterwards?

Uglier still.

(At least there'll be no more posts about the impending doom of it all.)

Gray, I'll take that drink now.

Aw Radge, that fucking sucks arse. See, I'm swearing which I studiously try not to do.

I'm so sorry to hear it mate, I really am. However I have no doubt that someone like you will find something better. Funeral directing but whilst drunk, perhaps?

Seriously though, my thoughts are with you. Maybe it's time to give some thought to emigrating to Melbourne?

Niamh B said...

Finding out on Facebook. That does suck. Very strange I'd say. As I said before, hope it leads somewhere better for you...

McMuck said...

Pint tomorrow (Wednesday) night?

Radge said...

Can't believe I've reduced you to profanity, Kath! Can I sleep on your couch??

Niamh - I've no doubt it will, and it's just a job. But it's still shit.

McMuck - I may have to work out some notice. I'll get back to you.

Radge said...

AG - You'll be my first port of call.

Thanks Sarah, in the office now waiting for the axe to fall, yearning for an early house.

Ah gee.

Catherine said...

Shit, man. Sorry to hear it.

Holemaster said...

Damn. Sorry to hear that Radge. Sorrier you found out on Facebook which is just..

Maxi Cane said...

I'm sorry and I can't say anything that hasn't been said already.

This is one of the reasons I don't use Facebook.

Sorry again.

hope said...

Damn! I always suspected Employers were blood sucking vampires.

You will rise above it because you have what they do not...brains.

So go take a moment to go do whatever makes you happy.

I told you Facebook sucks, but all the same I'm sorry that this is the end of it after the dread of the past weeks. I'll stab that wee failure of a voodoo through the heart for you.

Your whiskey's on me anyhow, and I'll have one too--my daughter who only applied to ONE university, did not get in. No job, no focus, nowhere to go, and I'm trying to pick up the pieces for her.

Now that you've got some time on your hands, anyhow, we're planning a trip to Dollywood if you want to come along. Appalachia's a wonderful place for writing the book that's going to make you famous.

sinfulorigamipaper said...

Radge I'm genuinely sorry to hear of all this.

I'll drop you a mail about that pint.
