Unemployment Hit Home

by Lady D (writer), Perris, Ca, September 09, 2009

It is better to laugh than cry.

I am about to be evicted due to lack of employment (my roommate is really cool she just needs someone who can pay the rent.

So I go out and spend my last few coins on junk food. Well the healthcare system is FUBAR and so lets eat sugar salt and fat. Ok, so I am a little depressed.

But here is the kicker. I see an article on CNN Money and the title is “10 office FausPaus “ so I am wondering what is considered faux paus “ these days”  in the rampant wave of corporate crime.

Or maybe the crime has always been but not so in your  face.

“Ha Ha Ha, see can do what we want and you can’t do anything about it.”

Oh yeah the “faux paus”.

Don’t be the office Downer: Could this be translated to mean when you know your company is doing some serious screwing of the people, don’t speak up. It is sad when half the cubicles are empty.

Don’t microwave fish in the office: So if this is the biggest thing stinking in your office I’d say you’re working for a good company.

Don’t go barefoot in the office: I really don’t care if you’re wearing a thong as long as it is an ethical place to work. Ok maybe  board shorts and a tank top over the thong.

Ok I won’t go through all ten, yes the rest were just as trivial.

So now we might have some insight what the corporate mind is thinking, or not thinking as the case maybe.

And we wonder why we are going to perhaps eat the big one on healthcare. We are so distracted with minutia.

We are seeing the world crumble and people be destroyed, because we refuse to care just how badly we are treating our fellow humans.

Ok, maybe I dramatize. Like I said I am a little depressed.

Trying to keep my vibrations in alignment  so I can be a money magnet ( no I am not kidding.)

Anyway I went looking for something to make me laugh and there it was right in the Yahoo headlines, Levitating mice.  Now the mice haven’t gone to some evolutionary quantum leap, or  world takeover alla “Pinky and the Brain”. However  some some scientist have been doing some interesting experiments using mice. They had used frogs and grasshoppers previously to float in mid air, but apparently mice are closer biologically to humans.

“They might have used rats, but they were to closely related to congress people and corporate executives,” ok the scientist never said that, that was me.

Well it looks like I also can be distracted. Well at least it was more interesting, at least to me.

As long we don’t lose our sense of humor we will get through all this weird stuff we have been creating.

Nobody can take away your sense of humor unless you give it up. Laughing, my answer to healthcare.

Well, they do say that laughter is the best medicine. Of course, no one knows who “they” are. Except me, of course :)

I  am sitting in your cheering audience applauding for your eventual success, even though I understand that it is the broken economy that has devastated the work force and many more folks will be losing jobs. Yet I hasten to acknowledge that there is hope in laughter.
