Unwarranted Sympathy

See? He's not so bad!My boss told EVERYONE about my lay off. This means people have been dropping by my desk all morning and acting as if my beloved cat died.

I don't even have a cat!

PLUS everyone is skeptical of my cheery attitude towards the unexpected time off. They're not understanding that I have two other fairly reliable sources of income and an emergency fund in place.

So far my big plans for the unemployed life include reading all those books I kept putting off, finding a sewing class and spending time with George W.

I hear he got laid off too.
