Well, they made up some flimsy excuse and fired my husband...after which they immediately called yours truly to see if they had pushed me far enough to tell them to "fuck off" and quit.
As tempting as it was, I refused to give them the satisfaction.
I just wish they'd quit with the phony concerned "how are YOU doing, how are YOU feeling, how are YOU holding up, how DO you keep from cracking under the pressure" routine.
Since it's become common knowledge that negotiations for the company's sale are underway, they decided to "be up front and honest about the situation" and held a company-wide conference call Tuesday to announce their intent to sell. Awfully white of 'em.
