Ups and downs
My life is soo weird. Today started out shitty: I woke up late, I had a meeting to go to, and the ATM I went to was out of cash. This didn't bother me much, because today I was supposed to make big money, and so it didn't really matter that I couldn't get some from the ATM. Shit, after getting my big pay out, I would've made so much money I could buy my own ATM machine. That was 8:30 am! You see, part of the reason why I took my break was to try and finish a business deal that would've made me enough moolah that would've allowed me to quit my job. After all the haggeling, and in the last possible minute, the deal goes to shit. No big nice commission, no quitting said job, Life sucks as usual. Screwed again. That was today at Noon. I walk around the office around 2 PM and I see everyone freaking out. The Stock Market took another dive today. People so far have lost about 30% of their money this month. February has sucked for everyone involved, especially compared to January's meteoric rise. I took my money out in december, so even though I didn't make the mad dolla dolla billz everyone else made in January, I also didn't lose a third of everything I had like everyone in February, so I am good. The same can't be said about my co-workers; some people around here are borderline suicidal. It occurs to me that this is the reason why the windows at office buildings never open. Now, at 5 pm, the accoounting manager passes by my desk and gives me a big envelope that has a 2 months salary (before the raise I got for taking 2 extra weeks off) in them. The reason? Well, we made too much money last year, so this is my Bonus. They tell me to keep up the good work and walk away. I am stumped. What a strange day!
