The Economy Bites Back

Ok, so it was inevitable that the credit crunch would affect my work sooner or later. Sigh.

Today one of our biggest clients pulled the plug on our biggest development. 13 people had been working flat out on it, so it has created a big hole in our workload. To be honest, it's not such a big deal because there's more than enough work to go around. We heard the news at 11:30 and by 3pm, two other team leaders had called my Boss to ask if they could have his available resource. Hahahaha, we aren't people in megacorp, we are "resource".

It's just a shame that it won't launch as we have done so much work on it. Market conditions, investors getting nervous, etc etc....
