YOU'RE FIRED

Well, it's 10:41AM in Chicago, but I'll invoke the family's proud motto, which is "it's Five O'Clock Somewhere in the World". Normally I don't start drinking this early, but I got celebrating to do! Bring on the motherfuckin' Jim Beam...because I just got fired!

Can a get WOOT?!

Now, most people would think that's being dismissed with little more of an explanation than "it just isn't working out, we know you tried you're best, etc, etc" and being offered a handshake would seem like a profoundly devastating experience.

But not in this case because I fucking hated that motherfucking job and also working for a person that felt it necessary to shove this Right Wing Asshole Republican bullshit on his employees (example here).

In his defense, he did cut me a check for August, and another one will be arriving shortly for the month of September. Oh, and I can keep my health benefits too. So I got time to look for a new job, masturbate even more frequently and get back on track with my gym schedule.

I think I'll be just fine...oh, and I'll NEVER have to see this person again. WOOTx10!

Ok, not only do you never have to hear those bells at Christmas time plus you can drink all day now? Sounds like a win-win to me.

Seriously, best of luck.

Congratulations! Careful not to masturbate too much, you gotta ease into these things. Trust somebody who knows.

Good luck with the hunt for a new, improved situation! :)

Great attitude, thinking on the positive side keeps your charged. I'll have a drink and a wink with you. Cheers

Although we have never met, after reading your blog about that BS job, I can say (without a doubt) that this is the best thing for you. Believe me, there is nothing worse than having to wake up every morning and know that you are about to go for the next 8+ hours to a place you can't stand. I don't care how much money you make, a miserable job is the worst!

I also know, without a doubt, that there is something better waiting for you just over the horizon.

PS With all that free time "on your hands", better stock up on lube.

Good for you! Man, you hated it there! Relax (but not too much) and chill for a week or two (this must freak out the new roomie, eh?) and when its time to get a new gig you'll have a clear head and i'll bet even now you feel like a great, horrible, life-sucking weight has been lifted from your shoulders.

Take it easy, but take it.

Jay said...

Oh wow. Well looking on the bright side of things is always a good thing.

Hopefully you'll find something you really love. Doing something you love to me is the different between a career and a job.

Best of luck!
