    I've had a number of bosses who liked that phrase. They would be leaving for a meeting or something and say, "I'm off to save a hundred jobs." But they wouldn't give any details. Guess it makes a person feel important.

    Anyways, I'm heading out. Be back later. I'm off to save a hundred jobs. (Might even be two hundred!)

    I remember that one when they were downsizing and expecting us to do more work with fewer people and a stagnant salary. Did I feel lucky? Not so much.

    I always wonder about this saving jobs thing. I mean throwing litter technically gives people jobs. Arson keeps firemen in work. And murder keeps cops on the payroll...:confused:

    I'm back. I didn't save a hundred jobs. I lost a hundred. Those are the breaks.

    Here are your pink slips, everyone. :(

    It's crazy how many jobs in big companies can be eliminated without any adverse effect on the overall function of the business. I learned that firsthand. Which is why I went back to something that directly makes money, more stability for me.

    if you get that line, start looking for a new job because:

    1. your boss is an asshole

    2. If they think they can get away with telling you that, there is a good chance that they will try to fire you the second they think it's in their interest

    3. there's probably some place else that you'll like better and will pay you more.

    you're such a good artist jo. it's too bad you couldn't sell some of your copper crafts instead and flip your boss the bird

    My boss can be an ass but he's also the most honest men I've ever worked for. So unless I really fuck up I will have a very well paying for as long as he's alive.
    I have sold some stuff over the years some for as high as $2500 o it's always a option :)
