work woes

it’s been a long long time since i’ve written something negative about work. and it’s nothing really negative about my job in particular; it’s about the company in general.
we have this intranet at work where you can check your paychecks and vacation balance, and they also post messages from head honchos. well, the head cheese wrote a message pertaining to how the meat and potatoes of our business, realtors, is not doing the greatest due to the downturn in the housing market. he actually used the word lousy when referring to the previous year’s numbers.
needless to say, there are layoffs on the horizon, and granted the last time there was a layoff i talked to my supervisor and he basically told me that my job was secure, and promise never to leave, it’s still shaky ground. my department in particular hasn’t heard anything one way or the other (unlike other departments), but still…
if i get laid off again, i will not be happy. i might start looking for jobs again. i hate the job search, but i’d rather be safe than sorry.
