As evidenced by this memo posted on the front door of a Countrywide office in San Francisco, it is clear that
at least one employee someone has maintained a sense of humor.
This comes from W. C. Varone's blog, via the ever helpful Patrick.net housing site.
Here's what it looked like to employees about to begin another day at work for the beleagured mortgage lender based in Calabasas, California.
As there were Countrywide offices all around my old neighborhood in Southern California - new ones springing up, old ones being expanded, new ones being acquired - the company's current troubles are of particular interest not only because of what must now be viewed as an overly optimistic expansion, but because of friends who work there.
Time to go to work.
