I got the order from head office, to fire three of my staff.
I wrote out the letters of redundancy, and sent them to the unlucky ones.
One particular girl would not go quietly, and burst into my office upon hearing the news.
“How can you just fire me? I’ve worked here for 12 years! I’ve barely ever taken a sick day, and I work my hardest every day.”
I said to her, “Hold on now, imagine you were in my position for a second….
Feels good not worrying about finding a new job, doesn’t it?”
