Laying On The Laying Off Thick

| Working | June 24, 2014

(My studio works on multiple shows, and one of them was recently canceled. Half of the team of the canceled show were absorbed into other shows, laying off people from other teams. A week after this occurs, I’m having lunch with one of the directors for a show that had to let people go because of this.)

Director: “The last week has just been so rough.”

Me: “Yeah, but at least you still have your job.”

Director: “True, but I don’t think anybody could feel as bad as I do since I had to let people go.”

Me: “You do realize that you’re talking to one of the people you had to lay off, right?”
