Sometimes when a company has layoffs, the deskside IT guy is left to pick up the pieces. Sometimes it can be a little stressful and not all that pleasant. I understand that the executives gotta do what they gotta do because the business is more important, but sometimes I wonder how much empathy they have when so many lives are affected by doing something like this.

BTW, This isn’t a rib against my employer, it’s just a fact of life and it happens.
