Yesterday I finally got the news. We're through here at this company and Feb 27th is our last day. I certainly wasn't shocked. He when asked by me what I might expect from him personally (after 19 years) looked at me in shock and replied, "I'm losing money like everyone else". I told him in my own words that that was a lot of bull and walked out of his office.
Today he got an email asking if he wanted to consider two paintings by a artist he collects; one $1,900,000 and one $1,700,000 The art dealer's words "I believe in this climate there would be room for negotiation of either strike you."
BUT he hasn't got any money to give me after 19 years.
