Top Ten Signs You Are Getting Fired:
10 - When you accept Congress' request to take a position in the Treasury Department or a recently government bailed out firm, where your responsibilities will include the noble task of cleaning up someone else's mess...
9 - A month after honestly responding to an "anonymous review," your boss introduces you to his new "best friend" - who happens to be an IT techie dude you never saw him with before...
8 - When you notice emails you've never read have already been opened. Then later that same week you catch your girlfriend having dinner with your boss... OR the techie!
7 - When your supervisor, who usually comes in at 10:00 AM, suddenly turns tardy and starts beating you in. As you settle into your chair just a little late as usual, you can't help but notice him smugly typing an email entitled "Our evil trap is working."
6 - When colleagues notice your monitor is cracked and your hand is bleeding; and when they ask you if you are okay, they don't seem to believe your response about the "electrical surge."
5 - When your lunch buddies are suddenly too busy to eat with you due to what they term "pariah-itis"...
4 - When you catch the unmistakable whiff of urine around your cubicle...
3 - When the government purchases a majority stake in the bank where you are the CEO.
2 - As you boot up your computer, new software uploads and a smiley face appears on your screen and softly says, "Don't panic. This is a routine software upgrade. Why don't you go have a cup of coffee now? You deserve a break."
1 - When passing you in the restroom, your boss kindly says "hello dear friend," and then under his breath adds smartly, "I'm gonna fire you pal!"
