Bastardiszing two great games.

by

This whole TMD job situation is getting more complex and crazy. Her job has thankfully been extended by three months, so impending joblessness now is put off till July, I think.

The way things work is that any job available in her…company, for want of a better word….goes on a redeployment list. So any employee at risk of redundancy – and in fact, the many many people who lose their jobs this week – are entitled to apply for these few vacancies.

But it’s like a giant game of Clue/Cluedo. Lots of innuendo, secret gossip, judgment calls. Like, should you interview with Mr Purple in the conservatory, or apply with Ms Pineapple who likes to play with wrenches in the lounge. All the while people are stalking around with various tiny metal weapons, ready to clock you one and bury your body in the courtyard.

BUT. It is not just Clue, it is Clue mixed with Monopoly. Because this shit is all about the money. Who is it the cheapest to fire? What strategic alliances have been made, what IOUs are pre-existing? If this person wants to leave and we don’t want to pay them, how can we screw them over? Money, money, money. People are looping round the board, and it’s people like TMD who are getting stuck in jail and having trouble rolling doubles to get out.

I don’t know what you get when you cross Monopoly and Clue. But thus far, it’s not pretty.
