The only communication that ABM and I have during the day is through text messaging. These are the messages I've sent him today:
"X's mom died."
"Layoffs started here at work 2day. Waiting for my mtg."
"Y lost the baby."
ABM said that by the end of the day he was afraid to pick up his phone. I've been nothing but a harbinger of doom. Tomorrow has got to be better.
