In February, I took a paycut on both my base pay and my commission. My base pay took a 29% hit, and commissions were cut by another 22%.
Last month, I got switched off of my contract onto a new one, which means several months of no bonus, or best case very small bonuses.
Today, the owner of my freaking company got pushed out. By pushed out, I mean the FBI were at my work today, and the announcement was made that he "resigned".
It took every ounce of willpower I had today to not eat a bunch of junk and drown my sorrows in comfort food. I did well, but I think I need someone to tell me it's going to work out.
I don't really wallow in self pity often, but today it was really a struggle for me to find any light at the end of what has been a very crappy year to date.
Oh yes, and my crazy mother-in-law is coming to our house this weekend. Blech.
