When a girl at my office asked me about DirectstarTv.com I didn’t really know what to tell her. I knew she was about to get laid off since I was on the HR team and the last thing I wanted her to do with that information was to sign up for a service that she was going to have to spend money on. It’s really hard being a part of the human resources department at a time when we’re cutting so many people because we’re a relatively small company and it’s tough having to let go people I have really grown to care about. My mom tried to tell me that it’s all part of the job and someone has to do it but it doesn’t help me feel any less bad about it when I go home at night. I want to remain friends with some of these people but I find that after I have to let them go that’s kind of the last thing they want to do which is totally understandable.
