One benefit of being fired by email is that it, at least, isn’t followed by the inhuman cackle of a Mephistophelean executive, or the suggestingslide of a .45 caliber pistol slid across the big ebony desk of your firer.

Unfortunately, your position is one that has been eliminated.”
We like to think that the very next sentence was “LOLZORZ!”
