Why can't people be a little patient?!

We received an email from the company I contract with to work from home. Here I will share a bit of it. Hello everyone. I just wanted to get some information to you about some things people have been asking me. First off, I have no work scheduled for this week. Being a start-up company work may be sparce for the first couple of months but I assure you that there are a number of projects in the works. The owner has died, and the company is restructuring. I know the economy is down and times a rough. But the emails and IM's are harsh concerning this. It is a work from home position. And it pays! If a bunch of people quit, then there will be no work for anyone for even longer. It will be harder for them to start up again. We have had 2 projects since the unfortunate death of the original owner. There are about a zillion people out there looking for honest, real positions.We actually found one. The slightest bump in the road and VENOM It's not like the guy said 'ok, now that you are all comfy with working at home, I am going to die on purpose and screw you!'

I think patience is a virtue but it can be one in short supply. Trying to find a work at home job can be hard. There are many false starts and leads that wind up going nowhere in the end. I suppose people can get jaded and bitter. That is shame. If this company had paid in the past, then one might hope that the new management would know to run it pretty much the same. Therefore, patience seems prudent at this juncture.

Oh my, It is true though..some people rely on the money they make from working and when that work evaporates so do their patience most times. I do hope that the company can spring back in it's feet soon with jobs. I hope everyone sticks around and waits though. Patience is supposed to be a virtue..a good thing

Yes, people need to be more patient. You can't expect a company to hit the ground running again. It will take time to build things back up. If some of these people are too impatient to wait then I guess the company would be better off without them.
