position eliminated

tags: ,

the first and only text message waiting on my phone when I woke that morning read

my position has been eliminated

It didnt read

  • I’ve been made redundant
  • I’ve lost my job
  • They’ve got rid of me
  • They’ve cut my job

No words of anger, no tremors of fear, no tissue of tears.  Just the 2 words which feel like they are being pretentious because they have 3 or more syllables.

position = job

eliminated = cut

    it is good to know that this blog is fiction… …this hasn’t happened to me… …but it does happen to people…

    …welcome back Grumpy, I suspected that readers who came from Mr London St. would stop by only very briefly and never come again so it’s a pleasant suporise to hear from you again 🙂

    I like the post-modernist undertones of that phrase. I like The Undertones. I like posts.
