I've been in the construction industry for almost four decades. Every day, when I go to work, I have the thought I'm working my way out of a job. For every completion, there's an ending, which may not lead to another beginning. I accept this and manage my life accordingly.
So, when the possibility of some government workers being laid off is perceived as a "disaster", I don't have that perception. Every endeavor in life has a purpose and need. If the purpose and need are only whimsical in importance, the end is needed and more important. Unwarranted purpose is waste and waste is not good.
In Case You've Wondered
My blog is where my wandering thoughts are interspersed with stuff I made up. So, if while reading you find yourself confused about the context, don't feel alone. I get confused, too.
If you're here for the stories, I started another blog: scratchingforchange.blogspot.com
One other thing: sometimes I write words you refuse to use in front of children, or polite company, unless you have a flat tire, or hit your thumb with a hammer.
I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.
