Stuffy and congested, the plan was to call out sick and come in the afternoon for a 2:00pm meeting.
But something told me to check the Blackberry to make sure there were no important e-mails.
Anytime you get a company e-mail from Debra Lee before 9:00AM, it's not good news.
Viacom had announced they were letting 850 employees go and that BET would be affected as a result.
One of those 850 employees is me.
Before you break out the box of tissues and offer your hugs (I'll take your hugs if you're hot), believe me when I say that I'm OK.
(If you have talked to me in the last 11 months, you will know that I'm really OK)
God works in mysterious ways and I look at this as an opportunity for a change of scenery and a fresh start in my career.
If you were expecting an angry Black man rant about how the man screwed me over, I apologize.
Now time to catch up on my DVR ...
