I still have a job!! Part two.
There was another round of layoffs at work and it missed me.  "Relief" doesn't begin to describe what I feel.

See, I work for one of the many hundreds of industry associations located around Washington, DC.  My association represents the manufacturers of recreation vehicles.  You know when the President went to Elkhart, Indiana to talk to the people who are living with 15% unemployment because the RV industry is tanking?  You know how the stimulus package was approved and then several programs for business loans were cut out in committee?  You ever hear a reserved, elderly company president just about crying on the phone because the place he's built his entire life is not going to be able to get any financing so he can keep paying his people?

I will not be taking my paycheck for granted for a very long time.

It's a situation truly made of suck. But I'm hoping things will work out.
