I promised my gorgeous, perfect, wonderful wife I wouldn’t get into the details and get nasty. Because that’s how I feel right now. Without mentioning specifics, it looks like we’ll be down to one income soon. All because a certain bank, let’s just call it the Bank of the United States, has a grudge against a certain employee who did nothing but give 8 years of loyalty and hard work while employed there, even attaining “top performer” status for two of those years and winning free trips. And when medical conditions and other things out of anyone’s control began to understandably affect her work, they put her under a magnifying glass and looked for any reason to force her out.
And amazingly, because MJ is a saint, she asked me to not badmouth this certain Bank of the United States because she still thinks it’s a great company. Meanwhile, the things I’d like to say about this bank and the higher-ups in this region who run it would make Andrew Dice Clay blush.
So instead of badmouthing these morons who all of us taxpayers are currently bailing out because of their incompetence, I’m choosing to cheer up my wife with a little poem. Oh, and if any of you are know of any job openings for someone with a great background and 5 years of management experience, we’re all ears. So here you go, without further ado, this one’s called “It’s OK Baby.”
It’s OK baby, don’t you be glum
This is just another challenge we will overcome
You did your best and you gave it your all
It’s their loss and they’ve got quite the gall
It’s OK baby, don’t be upset
We’ll land on our feet, don’t you fret
With all your talent and all those skills
You’ll find another way to pay the bills
It’s OK baby, can’t you see?
Now’s the time you can lean on me
You hold us up you are the glue
But when you’re down we’re here for you
It’s OK baby, don’t you pout
These things have a way of working out
It’s probably best that you didn’t linger
So walk away proud and give ‘em the finger
It’s OK baby, just stay strong
You’ll find something else, it won’t be long
Sure times are tough, that much is true
But it’ll be OK because I believe in you
