Work Stuff

I am mentally drained tonight. I've been sitting here at the keyboard trying to think of something clever to say. But the words are slow to come.
We've been in meetings with AT&T today. They will be taking some of our people and the others will left behind to find another job either with EDS or with some other company.
It has been a mixed bag at work. Some people a quite happy and others are almost shell-shocked.
We've known this was coming for quite some time, but next Wednesday, offers from AT&T will be made and the finality of the situation is setting in.
My boss says I will get an offer and if that's the case, it will be like I never left the phone company so many years ago. If he's wrong, I'll either move to another job with EDS if one is available or I'll take the severance package, retire and move on with my life. Either way, I am at peace with the outcome.
It is trying to be surrounded by such angst.
