I’m sitting here this morning in an empty office because all the permanent staff have been taken up to the fourth floor — the management floor — for a ‘briefing’. It seems that the company has been taken over. Everyone is terrified for their jobs, and rightly so.
I understand that the management have decided to give them all a glass of champagne; to “celebrate” the takeover, you understand. Funny how people don’t imagine how others might be feeling.
