The Layoff Chronicles: All the Children are Above Average

We had our last phone conference call with our Vice President, who was also laid off. Half the team is leaving, the others are staying.

Rachel: I had to drop off the call early to meet with a headhunter. Did anything happen after Scott spoke about [some ongoing project]?

Suebob: Well, there was a kind of tearful goodbye from Shelly, and then we got trophies. Oh, man, you missed getting your trophy.



Rachel: TROPHIES?

Suebob: Yeah, we all got trophies. Just like soccer - all the children get trophies, even the losers.

Rachel: The wha? No they didn't. SHUT UP! YOU SUCK.

Suebob: [rolling on the floor laughing at my own excellent joke].

Sadly I was ready to believe that kind of lunacy, because I've experienced such weird behavior in corporate world.

I can just see you guy being handed some plastic to look like metal trophy being handed to you. HA! You're too much Suebob.

Flurrious - I'm madly SEOing. I must kick the other Suebob's butt off page 1 of google or I just won't be happy with myself. But you noticed!!

If I'm ever laid off again, I should get laid off with you.

That's too funny. And yeah, almost stupid enough to be true.

Oh you are SO BAD and SO FUNNY and I totally would have fallen for that.
