Your last day of work was yesterday

May 26th, 2007 · 19 comments

I’m all, “whoa, they left him a note instead of telling him face-to-face?” and Scott’s like, “Yep, I guess probably because the night operator was a pretty big dude.”

Way harsh!

How’s that for way harsh? The numbered list at the end is my favorite part.

    the best part for me is “reasons for this…
    …New Tape Drives”

    that has really got to hurt.

    “Reasons for This:…New Tape Drives.”

    That line is particularly poignant.

    I especially live that this was chicken-scratch on a legal pad… They didn’t even ATTEMPT to make it look professional or official.

    I feel his pain. I think a note is better than having to look at some snake-in-the-grass asshole tell you he’s letting you go. Damn.

    I wouldn’t believe such a note came from management but would it assume it came from one of my ass-hat co-workers, so I’d like take it to the boss and ask what’s up, basically making them tell me to my face, at which point I would burst into tears and grab my carkeys/bag and leave the office with all my other shit and papers still taking up a cubicle. But you know, I’d have to make sure.

    I can one up this. My boss told my friend to tell me I was fired. “Just because.”

    Dude, If this happened to me I’d be pumped. basically just saying you get to sleep in and half ass look for a job and prty for around a month(when you add vacation time) It’s not even saying he’s fired because he’s a bad worker just because he’s not needed. Should be easy enough to find a new job in that time
