Subject: The Joy of Not Working
I bought your book The Joy of Not Working today at Value Village here in Calgary (a signed copy too!). It's an amazing coincidence, in that I was laid off from Shell Canada (Oilsands) yesterday; I'm only 38.
Anyway, I can't see myself working again for such a top-heavy, beaurocratic monstrocity again. They really do not care about you the individual. I put in a lot of effort and contribution to the project and this is what I get in return. These huge bohemoths boast about their record profits every year, but they have no problem letting go the worker-bees (who make them their profits).
Anyway, I started reading your book tonight and it's great! Just what I needed, thanks. I'm so excited about continuing with it tomorrow.
Thanks so much for your insight and open-mindedness.
