I just voluntarily got layed off earlier this morning because there was no work left for half of us summer guys, and my coworkers with families and debt need the money worse than I need car enhancement and ammo money.
Anyway, I certainly wasn't fired this morning, I volunteered to be layed off, but the last time I lost a job I was. A couple of years ago I worked for a construction company that was such a burocracy that they would hold meetings for no brainer decisions, and they would out do Wallmart when it came to screwing over employees and customers. They got tired of me pointing out simple things they could do that would cut their costs in half, or please their customers better and make things run more smoothly. Even if they couldn't be more right, companies don't like it when 18 year olds (20 now) point out obviously better ways do things, and they fired my ass. I went right from there and got a job making 50% more money, so it was a mutually benifitial firing. In any case, getting layed off gave me the idea that it would be interesting to have a discussion about why some of us foosters were fired from various jobs.
