Will learned that RIF equals Reduction In Force and the acronym was enjoined in his brain along with the other killing spell terms like pink slips, axes falling, layoffs, mass firings, headcount reduction, etc.
-- At The End Of The Day, Chapter 3 RIF happens, and it happens to the less fortunate ones, repeatedly. After two years of abuse, political infighting, working nights and weekends while watching my wages tumble with the company, I was quite relieved it was all over. I made a promise not to sue so I could get on with my life. Life as a riffer is quite enjoyable. In the week and half I've been home, I went on a field trip with Henry's class, had breakfast and lunch with my friends, took yoga classes almost every day, and of course, hang out with Henry every afternoon. Food finds its way to me at various times, not good. But I can find excuses. Could I be depressed? Maybe just a little? Here, some chocolate will help. I will burn it all off in my next trip to the gym, om the fat grams away.
