Uplifting Thought of the Day:

If I get fired, I can go on unemployment!

Yay for the welfare state! And surely they can't fire you for failing to meet unmeetable targets? Or am I being naive?

The same thought has comforted me many a time. At one particular job I was *hoping* I would get fired, but in the end I had to quit on my own. :)

Khandi said...

Yeah, I can never hold out long enough for the firing; I just quit which leads to me being broke, so yeah.

Unsane said...

you could become a communist and get fired?

Just don't let anyone at your job hear you say that. Apparently, all it takes is a sworn statement by a co-worker that you wanted to be fired to obtain unemployment and the state can legally deny you. (This actually happened to an ex co-worker of mine, much to her dismay).
