    I am avoiding conversations with my boss. Every day is another day paid.

    My name is Ferret Bueller, but I am often mistaken for Will Ferret. You may have heard of my cousin, actress Anna Ferretis.

    I received notification of a pay deposit tomorrow. That's a victory. I think he's losing his memory with age and stress, there is a chance he will forget that I exist after a while. I could use someone to remove all traces of me from his outlook. Russah, if you are listening...

    My wife's company had to lay off over 230 people out of about 400. Then 5-10% cuts for everyone else. There are still worse places to be and she is still working which is good even if there was a 10% pay cut. They should be temporary though assuming everyone is allowed to go out again soon.

    I’m still chugging along as usual, my role is considered an essential service so I expect I’ll be seeing a lot of overtime and this plays out.

    Only for 9 more months. Then you'll be laid off for a new employee.
