Ever feel like things just got kind of weird at work, and then you got the axe?

Usually right after I rig the HE to the bridge..............but its been awhile since I was in that mindset.

Anymore I just find another job and give my notice.

Right before taking a dump in the boss's desk...

Everytime I walk in the building. I know they're on to me, it's just a matter of time. I've been fooling them for over 20 years. I'm going to slip up eventually.

When your Bosses are in DC asking for 25billion to stay afloat, like mine are, thats a bad sign......

I've never been fired but I've been laid off while they were still hiring.

Thats the nature of my industry.

I hear you bro, your bosses are getting the crap beat out of them in the media at the moment.

I had a new manager come in and said something that made me mad. I let him have it and later he called me into his office to apologize and actually started to cry... all I could think was "OH SHIT"... I pretty much started looking for a new job at that point.

manager gets canned about a month later and I get the boot from his replacement approximately 2 days after he comes in

Yes.

I was unsuited for legal work, but found myself working at a firm providing support for lawyers/accountants.

I was told to start looking 6 months into the job, but hung on for another 6 months before calling it quits myself.

Not a very pleasant experience

Yes. I got caught jerking off onto the photocopier Monday morning when the boss walked in. It was somewhat an awkward moment for the both of us.

I probably should have stopped or at least tried to provide an explanation. But Gods-be-Damned, I wasn't raised to be a quitter.

The company I work for put a freeze on hiring any new employees to ensure the existing people have enough hours to work a full week.

At leat you've made it that far....... One of the "big three" already took care of me per say.

Sometimes I've seen the layoff coming, but I sure didn't see the last one coming.
