While a pink slip is nowhere to be found at Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdale’s and Sak’s Fifth Avenue Lingerie Department, it is unfortunately quite common in our society due to the downturn in our economy.
According to The New York Times:
“ No one is sure where the term “pink slip” originated, but it seems to be a holdover from the days when workers were paid in cash. Each week’s wages came in an envelope and anyone being laid off would find a notice — the reviled pink slip — in the envelope along with his final wages.” (FRANK J. PRIAL, Published: June 18, 1991)
Effective September 30, I am joining the ranks of those who have been laid off. I sort of knew it was coming. I’ve weighed the positives and negatives and have chosen to look at this as a very good thing, a welcome change and a chance to move in a more creative direction.
I think it’s time to update my look. I’ve made an appointment to get a haircut, and enlist some professional help in growing out my bangs. I think this cut might be worth exploring. Polished, yet it looks like it might be easy to style. Thanks for the inspiration January Jones!
